The sun sets on another day...

The sun sets as the clouds close in for another day. The cool air clashing with the warm sun for the last time today, the briskness of the eve closing in, and still we are warm with the thoughts of our day and our lives.

...or we should be. You know, 29000 is a good number because when I set it up, it is the number of sunsets an average person will have in their life. 29000, over 79 years, a hop skip and a jump in life, but also a moment in life we should consider as we move forward simply because there can be no surety, no moment of life left untouched.

Depressing, yuck.

How about this:

Every day is awesome, er, no, sounds like a not so kids movie movie.

How about this, perhaps we have today, perhaps we have a few, a few more, but we have no guarantees. We have nothing but right now, this moment, this very moment, no this one, it is all that exists. The past has faded and the future is not set, so what do you want to do right now right this second? Stop waiting, stop putting it off. Move forward, find a way to be happy. If you want to take someone with you, do it, but you have to take yourself first and find that one way to be happy.

Yeah, I like that better.

So as the sun sets on another, lets find that one thing that makes us happy, and if it is possible, lets take it to the limit, and enjoy the moments we can, not because there is a limit, or because of tomorrow or yesterday but because today is worth it and so are you. Be that person that loves themselves and make the world a better place by being in it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was blaring this eve, a testament of power, and control, predictability and more. You can set your watch, and even you life by the simple setting of the sun, and you can be sure it is always there.

I was feeling a little poetic this evening, so I thought I would write:

 

A day in a life

The sun rose this morning and bathes me in its light
Little did I know the moments that awaited
I rose and went with the flow neither black nor white
But instead all colors and shapes assailed me

The sun rose and surprised me with a day
Little did I know the fun i'd have
I felt the morning turn in to day
and found my purpose deep inside

The sun shone from far above the sky
I worked hard and tried to learn from all
I question what, and how, and why
and learned not everything is as it seemed

The sun set and brought the evening shade
I paid attention to the light and darkness
I watched the moments of the moment fade
and I know I was part of something special

 

I hope everyone is having an amazing day. It often astound me how many people are out there, and astound me more that we can learn from every moment, and enjoy them even more.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your even, and enjoy you sunrises, and sunsets like there were never going to be any others. Find love and someone you can trust with your heart, and enjoy the passing of the night, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love it some more...

The sun sets on another day...

There was hope. The sun was high in the sky and the world lit up like summer, even though the cold wind blew. Then the clouds rolled in and sunset was, well, dark.

Sometimes the things we want to happen just slide right though our fingers and we want to say, "Just a minute here..." and start over. The trick is, we don't get to o that. No free lives, no extra points, we just have to roll with the punches and move on. 

There are so many situations this can apply, and yet, inside we know that things are usually pretty good. We can take a moment and go forward, and do the best we can. Life is full of twists and turns, and sometimes it seems they are not fair, but in the end, it is our interpretation of events that is what sets us apart from others. We can worry, whine, and degrade ourselves, or pick up and do the best we can with what we have right now. After all, our days are best defined by none other than us! If you don't like ti, you can work to define new days, and make every day the best it can be by changing it!

So as the sun sets on another day, just a minute here, today is a good day because we make it a good day, and tomorrow will be if we want it to be. So press he envelope every day, set aside those things that knock us down, and live every day to its fullest, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it...

The sun sets on another day...

Wow, as the sun set it was full or color, but no warmth on this icy day. The cold was harsh, but in the end I enjoyed every moment of the sunset, and enjoyed the waning light as we crossed into night.

Take a deep breath, feel the air go in and out of your lungs, concentrate on the feeling of the air flowing in and out of your lungs, now consider: Do you think it feels the same for everyone?

It may seem like an easy question, you may jump in and say "Of course" because are we not all the same? A good question. Is it true? Are we all the same?

It is my opinion we are not. Science can back me up on this more than a little as we all have differences based on genetics, environment, and all of the in between that make us who we are today. In the end, my deep breath may be considerable larger than yours, mainly because I am considerably larger. Others may not.

So why then do we assume everyone feels the same, thinks the same, do we think that every person has had the same experiences? The happiness that overwhelms me each sunset may be less than perfect for someone else, or even ignored. That is not a bad thing, but my point today is we have to accept and be happy with others, even if we have different experiences.

I have talked to someone I knew from high school lately. The opinions being presented are very stoic in nature. I understand their point of view completely, but they cannot even begin to fathom their point of view is anything less than perfect. Others may be angry, but I understand, they are the sun of their experiences and they do not have the ability to see beyond their opinions right now. Perhaps someday, perhaps not, but the truth is it should not change a positive opinion about them, in fact that singularity may be a good thing. We are all difference engines that determine actions based on our programming, from past to present. We all determine our actions based on the breadth of our experience. We should accept others as we accept ourselves, and validate them, even if we do not agree, for that is what makes us better.

Huh, a weird post for me, for that I am sorry, but I have been considering it and the sunset tonight, well, it just inspired me this way.

So as the sun sets on another day, the best thing in life is to accept the unacceptable, understand the misunderstood and try, just try, to see more than you ow path but instead to enjoy all you can and when your path crosses others, be there if they need you, and not if they don't. In my opinion, this is a great way to happiness.

Sleep sweet, love, and love some more...no matter what....
