Currie's Gratitude 3 August 2014

More of the same gets more of the same. What we were given to practice, we practiced. What we practiced, we became. What we became, we are continuing to become - only more so - every day of our lives. We can do ourselves a favor by being aware of what we practice. Has the past taught us to withdraw? Think of how isolated we'll be twenty years from now! Have we practiced generalized distrust? Imagine how deep the roots of fear are growing.

But there's another side to that truth. If we practice finding beauty today, we'll find twice as much beauty
 tomorrow. If we work on forgiveness today, tomorrow we may be free of resentments. If we choose to relate rather than isolate, we can walk with friends through all the years that stretch before us. What will the future bring us? Whatever we have invested in it.  [Days of Healing, Days of Joy by Earnie Larsen and Carol Larsen Hegarty, Today’s Gift 8.2.14]

I’ve been noticing things I have “always done” and giving them a little Hmmmmmmm…

In little ways, sometimes, and often almost invisible ones, I have been changing. It might BE just as simple to say that I am, ALWAYS, changing.

BEcause I want to live happy. And with JOY.

As I am.

I love you, Currie

It's so true that what we focus on increases in our lives. If you focus on fear it increases. If you focus on love it increases. We often forget that the choice of what we focus on is ours...regardless of circumstances and influences. We can choose. :)
