An ocean of love

Imagine a thimble.

Now put your disappointments there. These may loom large in your mind, but still fail to fill this tiny space.

Imagine an ocean.

Fill it with all the acts of love that have been expressed toward you. These are bountiful and flow over this vast space.

It is entirely human to feel let down. But keep things in perspective. Someone somewhere is sending you loving thoughts right now.

These thoughts are vast, endless.

Like the ocean.

  16. Sometimes u have to just stop what your doing and remind yourself that someone loves you and is counting on you. As long as we immerse ourselves in this ocean, the feelings of being let down will stop mattering.
    So glad to have found your blog!
