The sun sets on another day...

It was cold and wet and the snow hung on the ground. Winter tried to come and poked out for only a moment, now it is calm.

I was thinking about dust and the winds today. It was a slow day with worries about weather, but I was more interested in considering how we fit in the global idea of life. Life is a series of interactions between complex organisms, and as we look at the sunset each night do you ever ask where you fit in? Do you ever wonder how your present compares to the world? Does it really matter?

I have interacted with a lot of people who gauge themselves based on the world. the advent of social media has made this far worse. How can you gauge yourself against 100 or a 1000? Can you? It is a tough question. Maybe in the end all we are is a mote of dust in the wind, but we can be a happy mote, right? I suggest we forget the wind, forget the dust, and be ourselves and live to our fullest each day. Only then can we say we are good, not compared to anyone else, but compared to just us.

So as the sun sets on another day, I like the word mote. I know, silly. I do though and I challenge everyone to find a place in their hearts for themselves, to compete only with themselves, and to be judged by no one, including themselves. Sounds fun? Well make it happen and start enjoying your life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and laugh heartily each day...
