…suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate. [John Green, The Fault in Our Stars]
It is really quite amazing how many things don’t even cross my mind. EVER. Yet this idea makes a sort of sense to me that I just canNOT stop smiling about.
I’m learning about respect. About “boundaries” that really mean something. About stepping up and taking a step back. About listening without responding. About loving what once made me more than a little crazy and often, too often, NOT nice.
The fact that I am only coming to this place of realisation Now, due to wildly improbable cirumstances [or DO I mean unimaginable?!], well there goes Life BEing Life. Its terms. Its time.
You have a choice in this world, I believe, about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choice. [John Green, The Fault in Our Stars]
I am grateful for the simple/est things. For the way it feels to BE me in my Life Right Now. I’m discovering how little liking Life’s course ultimately matters. We get to make choices, each of us, all of us, yet so rarely DO we recognise ourselves DOing this.
I am DOing this Now. And I recognise me DOing it, too.
I love you, Currie
