Currie's Gratitude 12 January 2015

Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered she had turned into the wrong person.   [Anne Tyler]

I’ve made discoveries awkward as this one. I’ve wondered at my easy irritabilities. I’ve been utterly confounded by my pettiness. I think this is actually rather a normal response to Life at times. Still, it isn’t one of my proudest revelations.

Helped are those who are content to be themselves; they will never lack mystery in their lives and the joys of self-discovery will be constant.   [Alice Walker, The Temple of My Familiar]

This has been a sort of theme for my Life. Now. And I imagine for some time. I have learnt who Currie is and who she might BEcome, should that BE her choice. I’ve stumbled upon this in the midst of experiences I’d expected to BE “bad” ones and it has changed EVERYTHING in a blink.

In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.   [Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia]

And in all our BEginnings. And our Middles. At our Ends it’s, well, it’s just too late, y’know?!

BE grateful. First. Last. Always.

I love you, Currie
