Patience is a thing... a way of being and thinking and behaving that can be done gracefully or not. Of course there are an infinite number of degrees of being patient + graceful. There are immeasurable shades of grey, so to speak. This is something that I've always known and continue to learn on a daily basis. When I choose to pay attention. Awareness being first and most necessary, of course. Ongoing I'm seeing a need for gratitude, patience, love and responsibility. That may actually cover it... for now anyhow.
The biggie I'm thinking of at the moment is responsibility, the constant acknowledgement that I am the cause of/for/in my world. I've never really embraced the victim thing and I've had every right, if you hear only parts of my story... domestic violence victim as a baby, cancer survivor... yadda yadda. Anyhow recent circumstances have served to remind me how fortunate I am in both circumstances and attitude. Remember never to be the victim, if you hear yourself saying "I'm not a victim..." why would you say that unless you felt that somehow you are or you think you are perceived that way by others?
Remember, Laurie Anne McCauley... you choose the people around you, to learn from and contribute to. If the experience is unpleasant, then it's up to you to adjust either your attitude or your environment. And remember it's an ongoing learning process... grace is available by degrees.
I decided back in November 2015 to make my poetry available and journal online. I'm not exactly sure what "blogging" means but I am quite sure this is an online journal. Feel free to read on with an aire of open minded curiosity. At no time do I intend to offend, judge or pretend to know anything really, I'm just an observer and explorer, as we all are. Feel free to "boldly go" through my observations and perhaps it will spark or inspire. Comments are off because I don't want to be worried about political correctness when I'm writing. I'm not thinking about "you." I'm just writing because it feels "right". Feel free to enjoy or surf on.
