Currie's Gratitude 19 April 2014

People don’t like to think, if one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.  [Helen Keller]

Sometimes something so simple clears up so much it’s like a summer rain that rinses the dirt gently away.

Sometimes we have thoughts that even we don’t understand. Thoughts that aren’t even true—that aren’t really how we feel—but they’re running through our heads anyway because they’re interesting to think about.

If you could hear other people’s thoughts, you’d overhear things that are true as well as things that are completely random. And you wouldn’t know one from the other. It’d drive you insane. What’s true? What’s not? A million ideas, but what do they mean?   [Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why]

Thinking, wise a thing as it is to DO, is terrifically discombobulating at moments. Lately my own thinking has been scaling some craggy peaks. It is hard to get a toe-hold, and looking up or down, oh my, don’t even go there!!!

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.  [Terry Pratchett, Diggers]

I'm trying my best to stay open-minded and willing, yet things seem to BE falling into patterns that are so much NOT what I want for my Life.

I love you, Currie

Sometimes life leads us on pathways we never had any intentions of walking, that's for sure. I've even been some pretty crazy places by just not paying attention to where I was going--LOL! Don't worry. There is always more than one way to walk a path and more than one way to change paths.
