Me: Few are those who come to see you around this time; few are those who keep you company. Aren't you tired of being so naive, giving them so many unforgettable moments during the summer despite that they ignore you all year long?
The sea: No, I am neither naive nor I fed up, because my middle name is Abundance and my last name is Gratitude. You only see what I give but do you see what I receive to be so attractive? I receive my blue color and warmth from the beautiful sun, and from the clouds, rivers and lakes, that I will never meet, water, the essence of who I am. And all at no cost! And for all that kindness, I can only rejoice in those beings who in return come from four corners of the earth to see me no matter the season!
Me: Wow! It's so true! I always have admired your beauty and failed to recognize your wisdom. So, would you please forgive me and give me some advice as I depart from you and go into the world.
The sea: Don’t you worry child! And yes, I will, because believe me, I have seen so many things. I have been around innumerable beings and I have even swallowed some! I could tell you many things, but keep the following close to your heart. Be grateful, always! Never forget to give what has been freely given to you! Do not be angry at anyone or hold grudges instead, focus on the good you can offer. Remember that when a candle lights other candles does not lose its light, but instead spreads its light!
Me: Thank you, but it's not easy, you know!
The Sea: I know, but it’s doable. Start small and simple. Everyday, be grateful for the little things in life: your breath, the sun, the wind, the rain and soon you will start enjoying life as it is. Then, you won’t help to keep quiet, but share the joy within you with everyone around whether they come consistently or in times of trouble. And for those who come only in times of trouble, you will rejoice more and be grateful that you are their place of restoration!
