The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was almost a sunset tonight. It came and went, was beautiful, and I enjoyed it with no effort, laughing at the colors as they danced across the sky.

I wrote about similar here.

There are examples all around us of negativity. People trying to steal our positive days by ripping away at our hearts, even our souls. The news is overrun with it, people are scared, and it just keeps getting worse. Well, it seems to, but is it? Is it really?

Let's start with a simple premise. Tomorrow. Tomorrow could be good, or maybe not. Yesterday, it could be good, or bad, or indifferent. You had a yesterday though and you have a today. Yes, you are reading this right now, so you do have a today. In that we have possibilities. Why? Because you were given the gift of life. Here you are, here you have possibilities, here, the future is limitless because you can make the future limitless, right?

I used to travel, more than a little. I carried with me a movie and a clip of a movie everywhere.

The movie was the time machine starring Guy Pierce. I carried this movie to always consider the possibilities of "What if". Why not push a little harder, why not do a little more? Why not push the limits of our imagination to make something better? Why not be that person who makes something new, something exciting, something amazing? There is a caveat to this, we are who we are because of our past, and we should be thankful it made us who we are each day. We should consider the tough times that made us as well as the super times. We should push and consider the fantastic quantifier of invention, "what if".

The clip I always took was of "Holy Man". the clip was where the main character helps a man overcome flying. He does so by hypnotizing and relaxing the man to a point the man is tranquil and serene. As he talks he takes the man through his own death, and in that moment shows the man why he was alive. We can make such a difference if we want to. We can love and be loved, and isn't that the key to it all? We are at the center of our universe but our universe is only as big as our heart.

Hmm, sounds all prophetic, but it is just a way to look at the world.

So as the sun sets on another day, love and be loved, live and keep living and try to see the bright side. Consider what if as a good thing and press for more. Keep on moving on, and laugh all you can each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and leave a better world behind...

Funny how sometimes you have to rewrite. Sunset was gloomy, rainy, soggy and fit for ducks. I was out in it walking the dogs, so I too was soggy.

Funny. It is a good words. Isn't it great how sometimes funny can be a little bit of anything? Take an old TV show, Buck Rogers. I always laughed at the robot "Twikki" because he started with "Biddi Biddi Biddi" and said something usually useless. I laughed because, well, it was stupid, and the stupid seemed to make me laugh. Today I laughed a lot as people everywhere are doing things to make you laugh, and being a little funny along the way.

Ever wonder why two men walk into a bar? Well, why doesn't one duck? It is things like these that can make you giggle and we need to giggle a little right now. Maybe we need to giggle a lot. Tell some jokes,laugh with your family, but laugh, and then enjoy your days even when it is not the best day. Enjoy it a little more.

So as the sun sets on another day, life is about laughter and can be full of laughter. Make your days better and giggle a little, maybe a lot, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and huzzah!

Change. Well, it should matter right now. The whole world is changing. Everyday tasks have become more interesting, and the world looks at everything much differently.

I remember years ago being in France and wondering how people met, became friends, and more. The social distances were large, and people barely spoke to each other. Now here, today, we see the same. A few weeks ago texting to each other at the dinner table seemed silly. Now it seems safer, and all around people are changing their perspectives.

It does sound good huh? Maybe though we need to remember, that even in change we are all in this together. Maybe we need to realize we are not alone.

Ohhh, scary, very scary, but at the same time maybe if we take a moment and look for the best in the world, we will find it.

Listen, eventually this will be over and the cockroaches that look at history one day will laugh a little as they twitch their antennae. They will see either a group of peopel that cam together and found a way to live, or they will see a world filled with people who just disappeared, alone and away from each other. Look for the good and let's find it each day, or at least all we can. 

So as the sun sets on another day, it is easy to find the bad today, but the good is there too. Let's hold onto it, make it ours, and have some fun each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love fully, and laugh when you can...

The sun sets on another day...

If you read with me often you will know how much I dislike fear. Fear keeps us from being the best we can be and often it prevents us from seeing who we are or who we can be. So I have a suggestion for today, let's let go of fear for a moment.

I know, it will be hard, and most likely short lives, but there is a moment in here that we can perhaps be fear free. What I want you to do is close your eyes. Not yet, wait til you finish reading. Where was I, oh yeah, first close your eyes. Then take a deep breath. Think for a moment. What is it you fear? Take another deep breath. Consider that fear for a minute. Take another deep breath. How can you beat that fear? In your mind, build a plan and defeat the fear. In your mind, win.

Now smile for a moment with one fear down. Smile for just a moment and embrace the fact that in your mind, you beat your fear. Take a breath and cleanse, then open your eyes and Be a little less afraid. Hold in your mind that there is a way to win, there is always a way. With that in mind take on the new day in our new weird world and make it a better one.

So as the sun sets on another day, why live in fear when you can live empowered by the one person who can empower you, um, that would be you. Believe in yourself and make the world yours each day. I know you can do it. In the end, be you, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and overcome fear...
