Currie's Gratitude 5 October 2014

Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger  
[Sara Evans]

It’s BEing fall-ish here lately. Early mornings have a refreshing chill to them. The days, though still warm by afternoon, are actually “just right” in my book. I am glad that I am able to discern this change and difference. I am gladder still that my summer is, finally, over.

I’m tired of feeling tired. Of the headache that I’ve had since June. Of days of feeling woozy and spinny. I am ready for a little bit of normal.

But first, I need to DO some Letting Go. I didn’t see this until it smacked me in the face.

Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You've got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it. It's like boats. You keep your motor on so you can steer with the current. And when you hear the sound of the waterfall coming nearer and nearer, tidy up the boat, put on your best tie and hat, and smoke a cigar right up till the moment you go over. That's a triumph.   [Ray Bradbury, Farewell Summer]

Some of it I’d rather hold a little more loosely. But that’s NOT an option.

I love you, Currie
