Currie's Gratitude 1 July 2014

It is easier to live through someone else than to complete yourself. The freedom to lead and plan your own life is frightening if you have never faced it before. It is frightening when a woman finally realizes that there is no answer to the question 'who am I' except the voice inside herself.   [Betty Friedan]

I used to think I was less BEcause I was NOT part of a couple. Or a family, growing up. Now I realise that I have had just what I’ve needed, all the way along. My Life has grown “smaller” in the past 8 years on my own, and I think this is the best time ever. MayBE just about ME is NOT such a bad thing after all…

Bottom line is, even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.   [Joss Whedon]

It always surprises me how “little” my “big moments” are sometimes.

Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.   [Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland]

Indeed. Somewhat puzzling.

I love you, Currie

I think it takes more than a lifetime to figure out who we really are. ;) And we are constantly changing and refining and growing, too. What a trip!
