Currie's Gratitude 16 January 2014


When you have got an elephant by the hind legs and he is trying to run away, it's best to let him run. [Abraham Lincoln]

A silly quote, perhaps… Although I think it speaks volumes. Sometimes I try SO HARD to DO something and when I stop, for just a moment, trying so hard, I will see things in a new Light. And that Light can make all the difference which my trying could NEVER accomplish.

If only we'd stop trying to be happy we'd have a pretty good time. [Edith Wharton]

I don’t think I am the only one who has hopped on the merry-go-round of TRYING to BE Happy. I think Happy is; or that it is NOT. But it isn’t something to try to “get” or have.

Just living my Life, Now, I am finding is Enough. I don’t need some thing that is BEyond my reach. I don’t require anything I don’t already have. I simply need to STOP TRYING and BE happy. Had I known this BEfore [or chosen to stop trying so hard] I can imagine a lot of what I struggled against would have been no struggle at all really.

Try to be like the turtle - at ease in your own shell.  [Bill Copeland]

YES!! What he said. That’s it!!


I love you, Currie
