The sun sets on another day...

A whirlwind day became a whirlwind twilight, the sun setting with force in the evening sky, taking with it a great day, just like they all are if we let them be.

I tend to overthink. Maybe a little bit more. Today I was thinking about today, which is usual and all the people who need a little help. Are you one?

Think about it. Some people look for help all the time and don't necessarily need it, while others set aside help and watch things get worse and worse, lost in their pride or some misconception. Help is out there. It really is. A lot of people don't ask for help and the world passes them by, some don't ask and the world is not necessarily nice, some do not ask and find a way to overcome.

A long time ago I needed help. My world was upside down, partially because of my decisions, partially because of other people who saw only portions of the picture or refused to see beyond themselves. I know it will sound like a joke, but I was as bad as Chris Farley's character in SNL, but I did not let it get me down I scraped my way back up and found a way, it was tough, maybe tougher than tough but I did it. What I did wrong was not ask for help, and in doing so compromised myself, my values, and in the end caused myself a load of problems. I felt my problems were not anyone else's but mine. In doing so I learned a subway sub can last 5 days if you need it to, and that cold is not as cold as you think. Ancient history, but it taught me to reach out and I would if I needed help now.

How about you? If you need help are you getting it? Are you reaching out tot he right person? Can you find the help you need? If not, find your way and do it. There is nothing wrong with a little help, and being alone is, well, lonely. 

No, this was not meant to be a downer or a negative post, just something on my mind today. 

So as the sun sets on another day, you are not alone. (Stop looking around the room, it is a figure of speech) Take a moment, reach out for help if you need it, solve your problems today, and find a way to make life better each day you can. Like the Beatles said, "we get by with a little help from our friends".

Sleep sweet, love life, and if you don't need help help someone...
