The sun sets on another day...

As the sun rises it brings light to us all, warmth and excitement as well, except here where it was 7 degrees this morning. Oh well, it was close.

Ever notice how when someone rises, there are sometimes people there trying to bring them down? There seem to be a lot of people who like to try to bring themselves up by bringing others down instead of rising above. Whether a fantastic moment, or an event that was above us all, or someone who truly excels, there always seems to be someone out there that just can't see past and needs to find exception. The sun rises and brings light, but it didn't warm me up today. How about, the sun rose, and made the day a great day.

I have been around some pretty exceptional people who have a hard time with this concept as they cannot seem to understand that their opinion is not the only opinion. These people do their best to attack those that rise above, so no one is truly above them in their mind. Why? Who knows. I believe though that we can all rise above and in the process be what we need to be not in completion with these people, but in spite of them. We can find a way to be more, and enjoy the moments, rising above negativity with positivity. Sure, it may be hard, but sometimes you just have to be that person, and light the path for others, kinda like the sun does.

So as the sun sets on another day, wow, you are great. Don't just believe it, know it, live it, be it, and if someone tries to bring you down, let them, and move on. Be that person that goes beyond what others do, and rise above. In the end, no one else defines you but you, and as you believe that, start enjoying every day because you are worth it. Find a way to go beyond, and live life to its fullest, no matter what.

 Sleep sweet, love life, and shine on...
