The sun sets on another day..
Christmas closes in on us, circling like a silent predator, its true meaning lost in the technology driven miasma that seems to consume us all, a need, even an entitlement that would make Ebeneezer Scrooge pale at the thought of it.
Sounds awful. In this time of year we should embrace joy and be thankful for the things in our life that have given us the richness we feel inside. That's right, feel. Not the things we touch each day or will touch someday, but the things we feel. We touch the car we drive each morning, but we feel the joy of driving. We touch the person next to us, but we feel the passion (or insert other feeling here) deep inside, we touch money, but we feel...well, bad example.
I had someone tell me once that they would stay in a situation of pain and frustration forever, because they knew they would have "stuff". I am sure he will be happy as he will not lose his precious money, but he will never know how great life could be until he lets that go.
Once upon a time I thought similar. I thought that money and stuff was a goal, then I lost most of what I had and found that it was transient. Although I appreciate the things in life, the most important things in life (As I see it) are passion, love, and trust.
Think about it for a while and maybe we will get to the same place.
Enjoy the night, find passion, and trust in your love, or find love you know you trust...
