You Should Have a Sense of Gratitude

God's Will and Ocean

One time we caught a lot of rotten, dark fish. The smell was like ammonia. I seldom feel seasick, but when I smelled that my stomach began to turn. I first thought, "I'm no good, because I'm feeling so bad over this fish."

Then I began to think differently and said, "I have to pay indemnity." When I realized that, the sickness disappeared, because I could love that smell. It meant I could pay indemnity for something, or for someone. I was able to gain a sense of gratitude for that smell and with that, I overcame any feeling of seasickness.
