Sadness hurts. It's a hard time. Fundamentally, it's a good thing.

No, I'm not crazy nor have I fallen off my rocker.

Good morning everybody ...

Good morning everybody …

In every life there is some sadness. The loss of a loved one, the disappointments that comes from a dream that got shattered, illness, to just name a few. Things don’t always go your way.

Sadness hurts. It’s a hard time. Fundamentally, it’s a good thing.

No, I’m not crazy nor have I fallen off my rocker.

That kind of sadness only comes from great care. As painful as it is, think of the alternative. What if you had never cared?

Oddly enough, the lack of pain turns out to be the greatest pain. We need to experience and appreciate our pain without getting overwhelmed by it.

Ok, listen. We all suffer differently. We all recover differently. We don’t all take the same amount of time.

The first step is to admit the pain, acknowledge it, and feel it for what it is. It is a powerful caring: about ourselves, about others, about the truth, about love, about life. The pain shows us how much we care and determines for us what is truly important in life.

In all this sadness there is meaning and hope. Out of this sadness comes a deep sense of appreciation. The sunshine is always more precious after a week of rain.

See past the pain and find an outlet for your feelings. Realize that your sadness is a testimony to the joy and beauty of life. Experience the divine gift of life and let that deep-seated care move you forward.

Well my friends, it’s time to move on with my day. Be good to one another and don’t take your freedom for granted because it’s not a given to everybody to do so.

And 1 more thing . . .

SMILE! . . . You’re on life’s candid camera!
