The sun sets on another day...

Today's picture is not the picture I took, it is a picture that past. The picture I took tonight was amazing, filled with color, and as the sun set the clouds created an amazing grid made of shades of pink and grey. Me, being human and with flaws, took over 100 photos, with no memory card in tonight's camera. I was in such a hurry that I did not pay attention and had a setting wrong. I have learned.

This made me consider all of the things I have learned, and it revolves around trust. It is hard for me to trust sometimes even though I keep a positive outlook on life and try to share that outlook with everyone I meet. Tonight I learned an old lesson again as we all sometimes do. I will learn this lesson again someday and consider that some lessons are worth repeating. (like the word lesson)

So learn from this with me and keep trying, even though you may make a mistake again. Live life, live for life, love with all your heart, and believe in people, even though you may have been hurt before...it is worth it. (And check your camera's settings before you hit the button)

The sun sets on another day...

 Today is a wonderful day worth living, and it is wonderful you are in this day and living it. What have you done today to make memories, and make your life full and complete? I was reading through a variety of quotes and ideas and came across the following:

"Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable." ~Sydney J. Harris

It is always amazing to me the number of people that avoid life, out of fear that someone will not like them, or they will lose stuff, or that they will have issue after issue. The key here is fear, we should avoid fear and live life. You are not always going to make everyone happy, perhaps you should then think about living for you to be happy first. Why live a life of despair or have issues each day with how life treats you when you can control the outcome?

Anything less is a waste of time.

BE happy, love life, and live for each and every day and the wonderful gift of life you were given.

The sun sets on another day...

..and tomorrow I will be done traveling for a few days and will have more new sunsets! (From readers and shots I have taken, there are only about 10 left on the server i pre-uploaded, eek)

Too often we forget there is a limit to our lives. Once of the reasons I choose 29,000 as a number of sunsets was to set a finite number that people could understand. We often look at tomorrow as a promise, it is not. Take this quote:

"Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out." ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

How many people do you know that have their music trapped inside, stuck in a moment that will never allow them to play. I have met quite a few, and hope they eventually find their way to believe in themselves and get out of troublesome situations.  Find your music, play your song, and love life every day and as you go, help others find their music, make life exciting, and enjoy every moment.

The sun sets on another day. The hues this evening were amazing, the timing wonderful, and now we are once again on the swing of having more time in our days. (Well, we have been for a while)

This was just a massive post, and it become so convoluted as I have far too many thoughts today, that I set it aside. So let's start over.

If you want a good new years resolution, be truthful. Sometimes it will make people happy, and sometimes it will make them sad, but it will allow you to live for the truth. It also makes it easier not to get in trouble because it is so much harder to remember a lie.

So tell the truth this year, no matter what...
