In these uncertain times, it helps to remember
that I’m just one speck of sand in the ocean–the vast ebb and flow.
That my life–so large to me– is microscopic in the scheme of things. However
that my contribution, no matter how small, is vital to that big picture. That without it,
the world would be just a tad different. That I’m just as I should be at this moment in time.
That I am enough just as I am.

  1. Perfect words to accompany this wonderful image. I am just seeing this now, and yet it seems to go hand-in-hand with my “Emerging” post…. especially your narrative – ‘ I am enough just as I am” ~ whole and perfect already. Very touching Meryl ~ loved it, xR

  2. I like your interpretation of this pictures with words. Great thought. “my contribution, no matter how small, is vital to that big picture”- it’s so true.

    What if every individual grain of sand could decide that it didn’t matter, was too insignificant, didn’t need to exist. There would be no beaches, anywhere.
