Currie's Gratitude 5 May 2013

New experiences are fresh ideas full of possibility.

And sometime they are deafeningly dull, slow, plodding, and downright impossible.

Whichever way I see it, from whatever perspective, or “through a glass darkly,” I want to welcome the new with exuberance.

A funny word, exuberance is one which I define visually rather than with words. In fact, I have often said that if you look up the word Exuberance in the dictionary, what you will see is Gracie.

She welcomes the new [and the old, tried, true, and never EVER forgotten] with a mix of JOY, relish, deLIGHTfull expansion, and genuine excitement.

She crouches into herself and then springs off, running, growling like a running brook on a summer’s afternoon. 

She will circle and spin then launch herself into spin after spin.

I never cease to BE energised and inspired by her antics. 

I try with every fiber of my BEing to BE that way myself.

And yet I oftener fall short. 

Landing awkwardly in Fear or Doubt or Resistance.

When I notice this, I have usually been mired in muck awhile. 

I’m NOT that quick that I catch myself BEfore falling.

Still, it is worth the effort, often multiplied, to welcome the new in me, my Life, and my World with as much exuberance as I can muster.

I love you, Currie

I could picture it. Mature dogs seem to have a lot more energy than cats--LOL! :)
