Currie's Gratitude 25 September 2014

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.  [Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay]

Sometimes people say I will “beat” this cancer. That I will make it.  I simply won’t focus on what is NOT Now. I am NOT living for tomorrow, or any moment BEyond.

Such talk seems to say that what is Right Now in this moment is somehow inferior to the possibilities in the future.

Future and Possibility are two things I think I grasp fairly well. Beating, NOT at all. I won’t compete anymore. I never want to win if someone has to lose. Those were different things to me earlier in Life.

I love you, Currie

I like this a lot. I am not a person who lives with what ifs or future plans, either. I always hope for the best, but getting through today is always foremost on my mind. You are right to focus on the improving each and every day rather than some battleground thing. I like the way you think, lady! :)
