As I move around the world in my life, I’m always being reminded that there are unexpected sweetnesses to be seen and appreciated.

While on a beach walk with my partner John the other day, I was feeling rather crabby and out of sorts, while discussing a business topic.

At the height of my frustration, I looked down to see that someone had built a little “sandman,” and his existence cheered me enormously and shifted my frustration instantly.


Sometimes I get stuck in repetitive negative stories and forget that the world can help me to see the sweet, unexpected things, and to remind me of them.

Here’s what someone wrote on the sidewalk near my house:


It reminded me to bring our insides outside, wherever we go- that we are sheltered in our explorations.

I am sending you unexpected sweetnesses in your life in this moment, and in every moment.

May we open our hearts and eyes to receive them. Let’s notice and celebrate as much and as often as we possibly can.

We can create our worlds NEW along the way, and I’m reminding us all to do it. And to transform ourselves along the way.

Bursting with joy at unexpected sweetnesses,

SARK (aka Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy)
