Currie's Gratitude 6 August 2014

How do we begin having more fun? The first step is deciding to leave the past behind. No matter what our experiences were last year or in our childhood or even this morning, they don't have to determine what our experiences will be in this next hour. Having more fun is clearly a decision that is coupled with action. [from Today’s Gift 8.5.14]

Sometimes some people shake their heads in a sort disBElief at me when I say I am choosing living with cancer AND looking for all the JOY and fun I can in DOing so.

MayBE I DO sound a little annoying. I surely don’t mean to… I know for sure I was NOT here this entire last 4 months.

For all that fretting and fuming and fearing all I got was feeling horrible. And for sure that was pretty much all I was spreading round.

But then I remembered how HUGE it was for me to Let Go of all the stuff of my Life, although it had been in storage for more than a few years by that time. I was sure I would miss it. But I didn’t/don’t.


I enJOY things simpler. Quieter. Less entangled in my connections.

I love Life with exactly what I have and what it is.

I love you, Currie

The art is great!!! I can think of several people in my life who could benefit greatly if the would only head your words. Living with all that negativity just keeps them from enjoying what they really have. I strive to be as positive as possible and my life has become so much richer since I made that decision. I have even managed to let go of long stored possessions too and mostly don't miss them...which is a major accomplishment for a craft Hoarder ♥ Lots of healing thoughts you way my friend. I would like to share some of your art on my blog if you don't mind. I usually try to post a "Random Thought" at the end of each post and some of yours are definitely worth sharing. If not I understand. ♥

When you speak from the heart don't worry about what other people think of it. Tell them what comes from your core...with great enthusiasm!! :):)
