Currie's Gratitude 1 September 2014

I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.   [Veronica Roth, Allegiant]

An interesting puzzle. I wonder similar things about finding something too hard or even “impossible.” And then, somehow, I DO that impossible and too hard thing and lo and BEhold, I don’t fall into some dark cave BElow the sea.

For some time Now I have been looking at HOW I DO my Life. I am getting rid of anything that is simply cluttering me up, stuff I DO that really is unnecessary. For instance how I was making more work for myself with writing Gratitude.

Even as I DO so, I find fears surfacing. Which pretty much leads me to BElieve that I am more afraid of what people think than I am of asking for what I need.

When you stop living your life based on what others think of you real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened.   [Shannon L. Alder]

It’s amazing to me how even knowing that what you/they think of me is NOT one bit my business. I always give it more weight than what is true for me.

Change comes slowly, often haltingly. Clearing clutter can leave far more than empty shelves BEhind.

I love you, Currie

I've been downsizing and cleaning out things I don't need or haven't used for years. Feels good. Slow as I am...I will eventually get through everything I own. And I am changing up some routines...just to shift the energy. Sometimes it is just time for changes. :)

Change must be dominating the atmosphere these days. The longer I am off work the more I have purged and reorganized my home. I keep telling myself it's because I am bored but I think it is deeper than that... it feels good.
Sending all you need to get you through this day.... today is what matters ♥
