Currie's Gratitude 16 October 2014

Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.    [Desmond Tutu]

Sometimes it feels like the bits of “good” that I DO are so small. Insignificant. And when I think this, I think that probably the bits of “bad” I DO are similarly small and insignificant. 

Which leaves me realising that though I am EVERYTHING to myself, in the World I am just one more person DOing Life. It is a little bit comforting when I look at it like this.

I felt as if I were riding a pendulum. Just as I would swing into the abyss of hopelessness, the pendulum would swing back with some small goodness.    [Ruta Sepetys, Between Shades of Gray]

I doubt it would come as a surprise to anyone that I ride a sort of pendulum. Even if the word, pendulum, always reminds me of the Physics for Teachers class I took. The one where I got a D.

There are “good days” Now, but I have had good weeks, months, and even whole years I’d call “good” without thinking twice. I suppose that what is Now will have to BE Enough, though.

And likewise, my DOing of Good will have to suffice. Even if it is small. Or insignificant.

I love you, Currie

Good is never insignificant.
