Currie's Gratitude 18 January 2015

I could not get used to the idea of there being classes of people inherently inferior to oneself, to whom one could be as odiously condescending or downright brutal as one likes, yet with whom one lived as intimately as family.   [Robyn Davidson, Desert Places]

It’s how Life is, I suppose, even if I don’t want to BElieve it so, especially in myself. But there it is. I feel “better than” some and “inferior to” others. As I’m certain others are about me, or “my kind” of people, as well themselves. I never really thought about getting “used to the idea,” I think I have struggled with recognising it. Then, of course, acknowledging it.

The two important things that I did learn were that you are as powerful and strong as you allow yourself to be, and that the most difficult part of any endeavour is taking the first step, making the first decision.   [Robyn Davidson, Tracks]

I had a struggle inside of myself yesterday. Did I want to rest and just BE or could I, mayBE, allow myself to BE greater than how tired and sore I was feeling and BE who I truly want to BE, or at least who I want to BElieve I can BE?!

Life is all about making choices and taking steps…

I love you, Currie

Tough choices ♥ Trying to balance what we want to be and what we are capable of being. i find that if I stretch myself just a bit farther than what I feel I can be it feels better as long as I don't push to hard and too far. A difficult line to locate.I know you made the choice that was best for you :)
