The sun sets on another day...
Today I am not writing this post, I wrote it Thursday night, and set it to post tomorrow so it would seem like today but it was actually done yesterday. At some point today I was in the deep sleep that only anesthetic brings. Hopefully a deep peace will come over me and I will be happy and fulfilled and my arm will be repaired. Funny huh? Right now I am a literal Schrodinger's Cat, existing in a vaporous state until I post again tomorrow or have enough presence of mind to do so later tonight. Fun huh?
As the sun sets tonight, and this post is set to be at exactly sunset (No more virtual time travel talk it will give us a headache), let's be thankful. Thankful for those people who make our lives
I missed the part where the sun sets and does not come up, the world is horrible, and people are always just plain bad. Honestly, the number of people in the world that worry about "stuff" is staggering. Worse, the number of people who try to bring down those of us that are looking for positives and that inner power that they have a hard time feeling is staggering as well (Good word staggering). Those people try to hide the sun, make the world horrible, and try to make people feel bad or just be bad.
There is hope, and it is in every one of us. No, it does not involve you wearing a billboard and telling people your way is the right way, nor does it involve preaching from a pulpit and making people see your point even if you have to hammer it into them, it doesn't even require wearing a tutu across town. (Would look bad with my legs anyway). Instead it is very straight forward, maybe even easy: Show people you can be happy no matter what, and if you can, try to spread it.
For those of you that read my post today without the benefit of my second edit, ooops! I hit the wrong button! Usually I edit several times before I release, in this case I thought I had not released, but I did. Ooops.
It reminds me of a poem, but I won't recite it to bore you to tears, instead, how about something that is not a sunset? Also you may notice I now have the home page go straight to the sunsets. I appreciate the suggestion.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. — Harper Lee, 1926–2016
The sun sets on another day....
There are so many choices in life that weigh on us, yes us. Depending on your denomination there are many who feel that decisions are sometimes made for us, or we are guided, but in the end most religions focus on free will, and in that we have the will to make decisions. Sometimes we are faced with an incredibly hard decision, one that will be a pivot point in our life and may make us better, take something away that is precious, find a new path, or rediscover an old path. Sometimes our decisions are not of consequence, but the results can be more difficult to understand.
So let's walk up a hill together. We are standing atop the hill, either alone or with someone. There are choices before us. Some are easy, some are hard and will be filled with pain. In the end both will yield fruit. How do we choose? I have been on this hill many times. Most of the time I have been alone or "Physically alone" and only some times have I been with others. I feel I have chosen right sometimes, and very poorly others. There are times when I should have stayed the course, and times I should have fought harder, and been more determined, with more passion. (Hard to fathom but true)
When you are asked a question on which choice you will make, the answer that comes is hopefully the one from the heart. Those decisions may be impossible, but it may well be the right thing to do. Now, I am sure there will be a lot of people who read this that can tag on a lot of items that show we are guided and should let things just happen, but I feel we have to understand what "guided" means. When you guide your child on their bike, they are free to go whichever direction they need to go, and that might be the right way, or it may be into the ground. Guidance gives options, but does not dictate.
So as the sun sets on another day, grab your courage and feel the power you have to make your life complete, remember sometimes it is right to face pain, defeat, and failure, so we can feel fulfilled and achieve success (eventually). Remember to drive yourself to the pathway necessary for success and happiness, no matter what...
