“You are the ocean”

The story is about a little wave, bobbing along in the ocean, having a grand old time.

He’s enjoying the wind and the fresh air – until he notices the other waves in front of him, crashing against the shore. “My God, this terrible”, the wave says. “Look what’s going to happen to me!”

Then along comes another wave. It sees the first wave, looking grim, and it says to him: “Why do you look so sad?”

The first wave says: “You don’t understand! We’re all going to crash! All of us waves are going to be nothing! Isn’t it terrible?”

The second wave says: “No, you don’t understand. You’re not a wave, you’re part of the ocean.”

Sometimes we need to quit thinking only about ourselves, and look at the bigger picture!

(An extract from a book I read recently, “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom)

A must-read, at its core, “Tuesdays with Morrie” is a book about what it means to be human.

It’s a book that reminds us of the importance of cherishing our relationships with others and living a life that is meaningful and true to ourselves.

Morrie is the kind of person we all wish we had in our lives.

Look beyond, look at the bigger picture, be human, Think Big & stay blessed forever.
