The sun sets on another day...
Sunset was inspiring and quite stunning. I was in awe for the moment even though I held myself in check.
It is the end of the month. The last week has been difficult but I have held my head up, waiting to see the light, and finding my wins in between. In spite of my attempts to be positive I have raised my hands and cursed the world. A lot of the world is running together, but most are being held apart by fear, disease, and a new world that may well be difficult to fathom. I was apart, thinking of a friend in the hospital who I have not seen in far too long to be safe, and of others who once were cornerstones of my life, now faded away.
Sounds grim doesn't it? A scary moment to scare us even further. It is not.
Somewhere in the midst of it all I found my center again. We all need to find that center.
- I had not seen my friend in so long and he could have been taken for all time, but I knew him well and enjoyed a lot of time with him.
- People come and people go, but those that really matter will always be there when you need them.
- Those fires that burned for others so long ago, at least they burned at all
and so it went, one thing after another. Even the horrible person who hurt me beyond belief then blamed me for their plight, even in that I was uplifted, for the experience was real up to the end and I will always be happy for those memories. Why can't we all look at the good moments and see there is a reason, that we can overcome it all, and that the day is not over yet. There are two great movie versions of "The Time Machine" (well there are a lot of good ones) but in those two versions the lessons are: "you forgot what if" and if you were going to start a utopia, "what 3 books would you take?". In essence they are the same question. We are a blank slate until we color the slate, and we choose what colors to use. What colors will you use?
So as the sun sets on another day, it is not that bad if you look at it right. The sides are just sides and will bound to and fro, and make no difference if you look at it right. In the end, you are the key. Take a moment and find your center, and all those things you understand now to be amazing. They are you know. Make them amazing and make your day the best it can be, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love in and out of your heart, and hold tight every day...
