The sun sets on another day...
I wrote similar here once.
I get a kick out of the cycles of life. What goes up, must come down, and proud many keeps on burning while the big wheel is turning. It is a huge cycle. Round and round and up and down and at some point it feels like a roller coaster with no station.
Maybe the roller coaster is the best way to go, right? Maybe the easy way, where we do nothing and live safely on a merry go round just doesn't get us where we want to go, and the roller coaster, no matter how rough, takes us further.
Yeah yeah, all these metaphors. What a waste, so how about this, tonight. Life is full of ups and downs, but wouldn't you rather know the ups and feel the highs and not worry so much about the lows rather than missing the whole thing? Funny thing, as I was reading this, I thought maybe life is also full of ups and clowns, but that is not what I wanted to say.
There is an obvious parachute in the ups and downs. If you have a good friend, or two or three, they can keep the downs from being as bad, and maybe help the ups be bigger ups. It makes the world a better place if we share a few moments and help each other when the downs are down on us, and the ups don't come quick enough we get a boost.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and realize, life is a wonderful cycle and even on the worst day, we can pull ourselves up. Find a way, make those highs higher, and pull out of the lows, and maybe instead of a roller coaster we can have a rocket to the moon and back, and the stars beyond.
Sleep sweet, have a little fun, and love no matter what...
