Currie's Gratitude 13 August 2014

Being alive is our invitation to act in fresh, inventive ways. All it takes is concentrating on our inner vision in combination with external reality. The components for accomplishing any task are at our fingertips, awaiting discovery.

Our burdens are lightened when we understand that all situations are resolvable — no mystery need leave us in the dark for long. Just as surely as we each exist, so exists every element we need to solve any problem or chart any new course. Our purpose in life is to select those elements that will satisfy the need. We each have been blessed with this capability for proper selection.   [The Promise of a New Day by Karen Casey & Martha Vanceburg. © 1983, 1991 by Hazelden Foundation]

WeatherUnderground says, “today will BE warmer/about the same/cooler than yesterday,” I’m simply curious to BE alive each morning. Curious to see what I will make of the day BEfore me.

I’ve long been an Eeyore-ish sort, NOT expecting much, staying guarded so as NOT to BE disappointed. It is hard for me to BE expectant Now, but it gets easier with each day.

I think what has changed is HOW I feel Now about Expectation. It is NOT a 4-letter word.

It’s a fresh perspective that thrives on Hope.

It enJOYs itself. Me, too.

I love you, Currie
