There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud. [Carl Sandburg]
This is the way I often feel. I was just writing about how I stick and stall and spend my Nows in thought-cramping brain-freezes rather than choosing to soar. Life is a curious business and somedays the best I can manage is SEEing it clearly in the rearview mirror.
As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might. [Marian Anderson]
This is a humbling thought. I have been focusing on the half-emptiness of things a lot more than I would like of late. I have focused on the negative and in the process missed completely seeing the positivity that is ALWAYS there.
While I am NOT pleased that I have been engaged in the negative, I am glad for seeing it and knowing that it is merely a shift in focus that will bring me back to where I prefer BEing.
Where I CHOOSE to BE.
Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will. [Aiden Wilson Tozer]
It really is that simple, isn’t it?!
I love you, Currie
