The sun sets on another day...

Yes, I made up a word. If I had split it in two it would not have the impact so it just fit.As we go from day to night then night to day how can we make sure we are doing so in a positive way? Seems like a dumb question, but it is not. (Er, well, I don't think it is dumb but you can if you like)

The question is are we able to transition from one thing to another, is that transition even possible with who we are or who we may be. We like to think we are an adaptable race, but some transition from moment to moment well, and some do not. I considered early today about this transition process, and why we don't always adapt the way we should. It seems easy, the day ends, fine, the night begins, fine, and the day begins again, OK, but even though we know something is coming it does not make us ready, nor does it make us in control. 

In my opinion we again have to look at today. We have no control over our past, it has happened, and no control over our future, it has not, we can only live in the moment and make the best of each decision we face Some will be hard, and some will be easy, but in the end they will all be fulfilling. Find an amazing way to look at each day, and make each moment a moment to be alive. Make each moment a time to rejoice, make every day your day.

So as the sun sets on another day, are you transitionable? Can you transition from one phase to the next? If not, perhaps it is time to let go of some of your baggage, let go of the negative moments and find the positive ones to enjoy each day. In the process, enjoy yourself all you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, embrace change, and love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day..

As the sun sets, the day wanes and affects us all. The effects of the sunset for some are varied. Some will be energized, ready for an amazing night. Some will be suddenly tired, and some will be unaffected by it all, well, maybe. It is clear though that there is an effect on each of us from every action of the day.

According to my personality profile I think a great deal. It says I consider multiple pathways and what ifs in my everyday thoughts allowing me to make better decisions. I would occasionally disagree as sometimes my decisions are not so good, but instead have an effect on me and an effect on others sometimes. Well, that is me, now consider you. How have you affected others? What effect do you have on people?

Give up? Don't worry about it. Often we don';t know the effect we have had on the world until much later. It can sometimes be eye opening, and sometimes painful. The small things we have done may have large rippled and the large things, well, they may be well over the top. The truth is, we cannot stop affecting people, we can only try to make the effects positive by trying to be the best person we can be. Sound tough? You are right. It is tough. 

There are of course people who make calculated effects on others with an intent to have an affect. These people are sometimes trying to do what is right but it may not work that way. Or it might. It is often hard to say. In the end, we can only work with what we know, and only try to lead a good path all the way. I think I could talk about good and bad paths all day and night, but that would be boring.

so as the sun sets on another day, think about your effects and how you affect people to get to those effects, and even if you are doing right, don't do it in the spirit of being wrong, and if you are doing wrong, well, do it right, right? It sounds good at least. Live for today, and steer your course to have the best effects you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, enjoy ice cream, and smile all you can...

The sun sets on another day....

I was reading one of the social media outlets today and looking at all the "do ti today" memes. There are memes for every moment about a moment and how we should live our moments, make our moments better, smile at our moments, remove negativity from our moments and measure our moments. It was interesting. Are some people so caught up trying to post about life they miss life? (I hope not)

As I reviewed these posts I thought of all the posts I have made here, on 29000sunsets, and I have not done a meme for anyone, well, not really. I have completed 1015 posts over time and I am not a meme maker? It amazed me for a moment but I realized I was not trying to get famous, I just wanted to share opinions, first for my kids, then friends then family, and then, well, for a lot of people. Since the start of the year this site has had several thousand unique visitors and the normal day brings from 40 to 200 people reading. Like memes it is random, only a few read every day, and only a few send me notes and say one thing or another.

I hope though, for just a second I can get across the idea or concept that every day is precious, and in the process, try hard to make life better and better or at least open minds a little further. It is a hope.

So as the sun sets on another day, posts and more posts, well, not as important as living life each day and truly enjoying it. Take a moment, enjoy a moment, smile, get fired up, take a breath and make this life yours each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun passes of to the horizon, predictable, we know where it will set by the date and can predict a lot about it, yet still the colors are a surprise, affected by the infinite number of combinations they can display, and our guess is only as god as any guess.

If we look out to the future we can quickly find there are a lot of possibilities in our lives. Simple things can become obstacles and obstacles can become simple things quite easily. We end up looking at the infinite number of possibilities and not seeing what is right before our eyes. It is true we need to set goals that are both short and long term, but to get to those goals we need to focus on the now, not the then. We need to find each day as a series of events toward the goal and not consider just the goal before us.

If you think about it and we should, the horizon is an infinite number of possibilities before us, and our awareness of the infinite number of possibilities, does not mean we will make it to any one, it instead is our daily tenacity for focusing on one and living in the now to get there. After all, you cannot get to work if you do not drive there, you cannot drive there lest you get dressed, you cannot get dressed if you don't wake up and so forth. Of course, this is my opinion. I am sure someone will say you have to keep your eye on the target, and they may be right, but they still have to swing the club or pull the trigger to hit it.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, look to the horizon, sets your sites on a goal, plot your course and push for it, but don't forget you have to push for it now or you will never make it. Keep pushing and find your way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and ride like the wind...
