Currie's Gratitude 31 July 2014

Sometime in your life you will go on a journey. It will be the longest journey you have ever taken. It is the journey to find yourself.   [Katherine Sharp]

Sometime is Now. That’s the secret I kept forgetting. And why I kept trying to get somewhere, someone, or something.

I feel like a traveller. At times a weary one. Still, for probably the first time EVER I am simply where, who, and what I am. It’s Enough. I am Enough. And what is is Enough. It’s like taking a deep breath. Or realising I’d been holding it for awhile.

The Journey isn’t necessarily measurable, like BEing the “longest” ever. It’s just that finally I know the Whole Thing is the Journey. My plans and schemes and ideas, they are just what’s rolling in me Today.

I have learned a HUGE lesson over the past 8 years: Forgive Everyone, especially myself. Even if no one hears or knows it, ever; even if it’s someone who I knew a long time ago, who probably doesn’t remember me, forgive them. Forgive myself.

And don’t BE afraid to remember someone or some time. Even if it stings. Even if it stings a LOT. FORGIVE. REMEMBER. And Let Go. Breathe. Make room for healing and Hope and things that will surprise and amaze…

I love you, Currie

Great art followed by even great words.

Oh, yes!! I have been working on forgiveness a lot the last few years. Doesn't matter if you ever even speak to the person or if they are dead and gone. The forgiveness is in you...and for you. *hugs*
