The sun sets on another day...

Tonight as I went to a new place to take pictures of the sunset heavy fog rolled in. The fog was so oppressive and so thick that it felt as though it were going to choke life out of existence. For a moment I was concerned and felt as though I would have to fight my way out to once again make it to the wonderful colors that are always part of my life. But in an instant I found my memory. I remembered those people who truly love me, I remembered those people who had made my life more complete, I remembered those people who were a fantastic part of all that I am, and in that I remembered that behind the fog, whether I could see it or not, the sunset was there.

So too should this be in life. We should have faith in those people around us. We should have faith in the people that make us more complete. Faith should always be a part of our lives. Whether you are Christian, Muslim ,Jewish, Buddhist, Wiccan, or some other religion, or even if you are not a religious, have faith. 

So as the sun sets on another day, believe in the people you love, pray they believe in you, and in the end enjoy every moment that you can and know that when the fog rolls in they will be there for you. Have faith.

Sleep sweet, love life, and embrace the fog so that you too can know what is behind it...

The sun sets on another day...

We have a certain power when we do not fear. In the movie the BodyGuard after a nice overly violent Samurai scene we discover the hero "... doesn't want to die, but he's not afraid of death." and that gives him power. Fear is a luxury you really should never partake in. Of course being afraid is a good thing that can give you strength to fight or flee, but often fear keeps us from doing what we need to do, when we need to do it, and finding the right way to do it.

So why skip being afraid? As in the movie, if you release fear you are able to see beyond yourself and truly understand what it is like to be unselfish. Can there be anything greater than to do what is necessary, no matter what?

This is a question to ask yourself, but I for one believe that 1/2 way, a 1/4 way or even 3/4 of the way just does not cut it, find the WAY and make it happen. Have faith, believe in truth, and love the sunset each day!

So as the sun sets today, as I sat and watched it go down with the picture above, let's all conquer one fear today, and make the world better by our realization that fear holds us back more than takes us forward. (I say let's conquer the fear of spiders today and work our way up)

Sleep sweet, love passionately, and make every day the best day it can be...

If we laughed about it we know that Laurel and Hardy had it right a lot of the time, well Ollie did. It always seems like this is another fine mess that life got us into when we run into issues, challenges, or challenging people. Fun huh?

Take heart, the way to deal with such people is to smile through it and never let them get you down. (Or so it says in the song Cheers)

So, as the sun sets on another day, let's enjoy the colors today, and love every moment of the day, even those that are less than pristine. No matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and if you are going to drink to that, do so in moderation...

The sun sets on another day...

A fun day, an exciting day, a day filled with happiness, sadness, passion and fire. So just another day.

In the center of every day is you. (Or me if it is my day). Each day is an experience in choices and determinations of who you are in life. Do you make the right choices, or make choices that are right for you? Do you walk the right path, or the left, or even the center? As we progress it is important we understand our lives and how our decisions define the choices we have available and how we continue. As you look at your reflection in the mirror, who is it you see? I see me, and work to make me the best I can be every day.  I implore you do the same. The best may not be what you think, but the best will lead you to happiness. 

So as the sun sets on another day, look in the mirror, see who is before you and decide if you like them, if you do, great, but if not, find a way to be that person you want to be, and then find someone to be with who makes you better, happier, and more fulfilled.

Sleep sweet, love life, and change the world for the better every day...
