Currie's Gratitude 21 June 2014

Wounds heal. Scars fade. Awful memories can be overwritten with better ones if given the chance. The little imperfections of our psyches become overshadowed by the people whose love we cherish because they cherish us despite our faults; physical, emotional, spiritual, or otherwise. This thing we call the human condition with all its bittersweet blind corners and senseless humor evolves from within ourselves and not because of some pre-ordained reverie we desire to cast in the constellations.

All in all it is what makes life worth living.   [August Clearwing, Never Have I Ever]

It can BE so hard to realise and then remember this. Life Goes On. Until it does NOT. And it’s always worth giving it another chance by simply cherishing the What Is.

To love is to accept a soul entirely, not wishing that the person was otherwise, nor hoping for change, nor clinging to some ideal past. To love is to cherish the individual standing before you presentlycharms, quirks, and all. To love is to give someone a piece of your heart that you will never, ever reclaim.    [Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, & Grumblings for Every Day of the Year]

This sounds so simple. But I don’t think, even once, I have loved so well.

MayBE I should BEgin by cherishing myself.

I love you, Currie

It is very difficult to love so unconditionally--especially with people who don't make it easy for us--LOL! They are tests for our souls, I guess. :)
