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...
