Silly little girl.
Sadness is meant to get your attention–not get you attention.
Sometimes sadness is meant to get our attention so that we will be still and quiet.
Sadness makes us look for hope; and when we look for hope we find it. Then we can heal, become stronger, and more sensitive to our reality and the realities of others.
Today, I am thankful that the sad times in my life have gotten my attention and made me see that one of the realities of life is that it isn’t all about me.
