Currie's Gratitude 23 January 2015

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.
So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
   [Neil Gaiman]

Making mistakes has always been my learning style. Especially important stuff.

I didn’t feel well yesterday, but I went to Mum’s early, planning to take an easy day of just BEing and NO DOing.

Whoops!! Despite curling up with my heating pad while Mum snoozed, things progressed quickly. I am Now at home, riding this sick out, and Mum is in a palliative care place for a couple of days until we’re both able to DO what we’re DOing.

I worried at BEing Mum’s caregiver. But it’s working. Well.

And This?! It’s a little hiccup is all…

I love you, Currie
