how sadness can help you get happy

Have you ever stood at the edge of the ocean?

And marveled at its power
Watched the waves crest on the surface and crash onto the shore

…Realized that it unites you
With people all over this blue planet?

…Touches the shores of
Antarctica, Asia, Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Australia.

Have you stood and felt small–and peaceful because of that,
Knowing that

you are just one of billions of souls
Finding their way on our earth.

Your challenges, your stresses, your worries

–they’re universal.

So are your loves, your delights, and your laughter.

We’re united not just by the ocean,
But by our common human experience.

Have you ever sat at the edge of yourself

And marveled at your power?

Watched the waves of your emotions crest on the surface
and crash into the shore?

And realized that you are united
With people all over this blue planet?

Your anger, your frustration, your sadness
–they’re universal.
So are your loves, your delights, and your laughter.

From Antarctica, Asia, Europe, North and South America, Africa, to Australia.

We’re united not just by the ocean,
But by our common human experience.

Sit beneath the undulations of your emotions
Watch them crest like waves
On the surface of the ocean of your soul.

Knowing that you are just one of billions of souls
Finding their way on our earth.

You’re not alone.
You’re united.

Big love,

L
