Currie's Gratitude 8 August 2014

We must move forward with confidence, trusting that the strength we need will be given us, having faith in our visions to guide us. Problems need not daunt us. Rather, they can spur us on to more creative activity. They challenge our capabilities. They insist that we not stand still.
… our will to live is quickened through others' encouragement. All else dampens the will. 
We can serve one another best, never by commiserating with sadnesses, but by celebrating life's challenges. They offer the opportunities necessary to our continued growth.   [Karen Casey, Each Day A New Beginning]

I’m thinking that rather than fighting or trying to “beat” cancer, I’m celebrating it. And NO, I am NOT glad I have cancer, but it is Here, so I will celebrate it. I will meet it with my head up and my eyes open. I won’t hate it. I simply won’t.

So many little things have BEcome possible, things that BEfore I was excellent about talking myself out of. I am able to NOT simply ask for help, but to ACCEPT it.

This isn’t a skillset I have a lot of experience with. I have always BElieved, deep down, I should NOT need help.

My “will to live” is “quickened” by encouragement.

My attitude is encouraged by this spirit of celebration.

I love you, Currie
