Currie's Gratitude 22 November 2013

Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.  [Henry David Thoreau]

A new morning and a new quote to ponder that seems, at first, to BE quite opposite the giraffe’s silliness. But that is how Life is so often. The bad opens my eyes to the possibilities for good. In the simplest terms…

I am Very Experienced at stuffing and holding back. I mightn’t always think so, but if I am honest I have to claim that to BE How I AM.

These past years have taught me the edges of stuffing and holding back. They have pushed me to the brink and then a little more. Still, I have stuffed and held on or back… And then, almost like a tiny miracle I never saw coming, I’ve Let Go. I’ve BEgun to Soar.

To me this is what Living It Up means. NOT DOing despite something but DOing BEcause I CAN. BEcause I don’t HAVE TO stuff or hold back. I can just let it all hang out and BE and NOT worry what anyone thinks.

The greatest wealth is to live content with little. [Plato]

This is the secret I never knew…

I love you, Currie

Funny how we thought this or that would just destroy us or others--only to find out that it wasn't the big deal to let go and change that we always imagined it would be. Truth is, everybody is so busy worrying about their own selves and lives that we aren't as important as we thought we were in the scheme of things...and those other people's opinions weren't as important, either! ;)
