Currie's Gratitude 22 August 2014

For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time to still be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.   [Alfred d'Souza]

I used to feel this way. Actually, I used to sort of “ride” on What Will BE When… Now, it holds zero appeal.

It’s NOT so different, really, staying Present. Actually, mayBE it is NOT so hard as I’d have guessed. Somehow I just seem to bounce along.

But yesterday I had a little whine. And it felt horrible to BE complaining, but I seemed incapable of just letting it go. That’s one well-heeled habit of mine. Feeling sorry for myself. Hard-done by. Waah-Waah…

So then I switched my attention to something else. It took awhile, but I seem to BE back to Me today. So far.

I am even going to take Gracie for a real “walk” and NOT just an out, potty, and back in. She has been utterly amazing this week. I canNOT BElieve we haven’t walked since LAST Friday morning!!!

Anyway, that’s the plan, so I’ll let you know…

BE Well.

I love you, Currie

♥ Hope your walk went well! An occasional "Petty Patty Party" is to be expected as long as you don't get stuck in it they are ok. Glad to see you bounced right back. Sending love and healing.

I hope you went on a nice long walk with Gracie. :)
Everybody has low times. You know you are doing well when they don't turn into days and weeks. You knew it and dealt with it. Kudos!! :) The more you do it the easier it gets and the farther apart come the bad days. But they always crop up now and again. Life is just hard sometimes.
