It isn't easy to BE me sometimes. I can BE a bit harsh. Scoldy. Inconsiderate.
I overlook this BEcause I say it's just ME. But over time this has BEcome something I've worked on diligently to change.
As I got to thinking about this week's Artist's Play Room theme, I noticed myself BEcoming aware of things.
Perhaps this was the point?!
What I am noticing myself overlooking is something I DO each and every morning, usually BEfore the sun has come up.
And yet I take it fully for granted... It's just my habit. Just what I DO...
It shouldn't take a prompt or a challenge to look at myself with more compassion.
It shouldn't BE an ah-HAH sort of realisation that hits me upside the head, but there you go. It's taken what it has taken and I'm stopping it, oh, little bit by slow bit.
Here's a thought: MayBE the way to stop OVERLOOKING this is to ask a favour.
To make a request.
MayBE I am hiding BEhind this and trying to stay invisible again...
So, here goes: every morning I send out my Gratitude to an email list of folks. I have been DOing this since 2007, and my list of folks has grown and shrunk.
The others on my list, well, a handful of them, mayBE a couple more than a handful somedays, also write and share Gratitude with me. [and others on their lists]
There does NOT seem to BE a crossover, an intersection, and I feel like that is less about people NOT wanting to and more about me NOT asking.
So, here I go:
I have another blog where I share my Gratitude for all to see and read. It is called I Love You, Currie and every morning I make a wee piece of art and DO a little poeming and write about something.
I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have more people read it but asking people to follow my blog just is NOT my cup of tea...
I started last June to post it as a blog as well as the email I send. I've noticed, too, that I sometimes wish those on my email list would come and see what I am up to on BE Currie, but then I think I shouldn't ask.
So, while it may well BE weird and perhaps pushy, I'd like to put it out there that I'd love people who read me here to read me there as well. In the 9 months I've had that blog only one person has chosen to follow me. [and I also added her to my email list]
To BE fair, I am going to make an effort to contact my email list of folks and invite them to visit BE Currie, mayBE even follow me.
I don't feel so weird Now that I have written this out. I feel like I'm mayBE making a necessary change.
Anyhoozle, that's what I've got today and here's a little sampling of some recent Gratitude art and poeming...
