Currie's Graitude 4 September 2014

And I figured out that the reason I couldn't get through the day as well as I can now is because I had too many things on my mind, on my plate, you know, for one person to have. So I started to eliminate some of the things that were too heavy to carry and unnecessary.   [Erykah Badu]

I’ve been learning about pain. About how I think and carry my own self away in that process. I am making changes, small course corrections, perhaps, and sometimes these are easy, others more complicated.

Life has had a sort of cumulative effect on me. I’ve always figured that as long as I hold onto something, don’t forget about someone, or keep coming back round to this discussion, situation, or what have you, in time it will sort out. Make a little more sense.

BEing wrong is often the very best thing to BE. And NEVER the thing to keep all to myself.

I no longer think of pain without its part in the dance.

Now I DO think about what my history is with someone BEfore I take any action.

I also remember, BEfore I BEgin talking, that there are unmarked slippery slopes and I must DO all I can to NOT wind up on them. Myself. On my bum.

I love you, Currie

I love that quote and it really resonates with me. There are so many things I have learned from this last painful, restrictive decade that I could never have learned otherwise...blows me away sometimes. There truly can be joy in pain. It has helped me let go of my ego, that's for sure.

You are on such a monumental journey. You will never be quite the same. :) :)
