Currie's Gratitude 12 November 2013

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.  [Robert Kiyosaki]

It might seem an odd pairing, this Gratitude and Disappointment. Yet it’s really NOT so strange their BEing here, Present in me this morning.

I’ve run full tilt into a wall. This move, despite all that is and has been extraordinary about it, has me doubting myself, disappointed by others, and feeling that somewhere in this pile of poop there must BE a pony.

But I know I’ve looked for ponies BEfore. And NOT found one. It’s all of it wrapped inside expectations. Like fish in newspapers. Doesn’t smell so good…

The thing is, I know that I canNOT BE feeling this low about something unworthy of all the Hope I have for it. It’s just that I am stuck in something of a hallway. It’s things, money, and expectations. They always make for a strange brew.

If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment. [Henry David Thoreau]

I think this is likely true. I think sometimes we have to navigate through the disappointments. MayBE even reach out. Ask for help moving some of the biggest boulders off the path.

Yes, quite true…

I love you, Currie
