Currie's Gratitude 25 February 2014

But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world.   [Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, The Little Prince]

Need has had a bad rap. We are NOT supposed to BE “needy” and the truly “needy” deserve our help. It gets convoluted when I think about it in reverse.

I have come to identify my needs in as simple a fashion as I can. I don’t want to BE “unique in all the World” to anyone. I just love people. That is enough.

Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it. Remember, you don't live in a world all of your own.   [Albert Schweitzer]

I DO like living my simple little Life. Content with my means. DOing the things I DO without striving after goals.

And  when I can make someone a little happier?! Fulfill another’s need in a quiet way?! Exquisite!!

The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.  [Lao Tzu]

I like when things are kept simple. When I don’t NEED to think so much.

I love you, Currie
