A boy was playing on the shore. He made a hole on the sand and watched waves washing it away.
Then he made another hole again and again. When he was finished his playing, and wanted to wear his sandals, he noticed that the waves have taken it. The boy wrote on the sands: “The thief SEA.”
Some other place in the world, a fisher man had a great day and caught many fish. He wrote on the sands: “The generous SEA.
A young man drowned in the sea and his mother wrote on the sand: “The murderer SEA.”
An old man found pearl in a shell he found and wrote on the sands: “The munificent SEA.”
The wind heard everything and told the sea: “What do you think about people’s comments?”
The sea washed all the writings away, and said: “Never care for other’s judgments, if you want to be the sea.”
Never feel sorry
for the past,
the things that broke,
the things you couldn’t do,
the things you weren’t able to fix,
the chances you didn’t take,
the things you couldn’t keep,
the desire life you couldn’t build,
the sores you couldn’t heal,
the tears you couldn’t wipe,
the hungers you couldn’t feed.
Be like the sea, but never let other’s judgments change who you truly are.
