The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set I came to a series of turkeys in the road. No, not turkeys like people who are strange, instead the family of gobble gobbles delayed me just long enough to miss the sun setting completely. I was not unhappy though, and I did not have a turkey hood ornament nor was I angry, as I imagined a great sunset and a friend took a good picture, so I used one from yesterday.

Sometimes we see the roadblocks in front of us, and we just don't realize they are not just roadblocks, but lessons. Sometimes we just need to open our eyes and see the turkeys in front of us and instead of hurrying around or beeping the horn, we just need to enjoy the moment. Of course, it is not always true, but it is usually true and when we go through that moment, life just gets better from there.

So as the sun sets on another wonderful day, enjoy the moment, laugh a little, laugh a  little more, and find a way to be happy even when you have roadblocks. Eventually they will clear and maybe you will have a new road before you. Keep on finding your way through, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

Another day, another rainstorm, or was it?

I saw the rain falling and suddenly there was a break in the rain, pink in the sky, and only 14 minutes to get to sunset. I jumped in the truck and headed to the beach, and as I went from home to beach there were showers, rain, mist and more. When I got to the beach I watched the sun set, and got several awesome pictures. In the car again as I drove home I saw the mist on the ground, a white cloak just two feet off the ground, and as I sauntered through, found a wake behind me. a [perfect V fluttering in the shadow of my truck. I drove through rain and storm all of a sudden, and still there was the mist, then arrived home to blue skies, and a huge cloud in the distance behind me.

Sometimes we don't consider the effect we have on others. We are so focused on moving forward that what is behind us is unknown, but if we turned we would see we left a wake behind with spaces in the mist that represent the things we moved, and a series of exciting moments that are in that wake as well, both good and bad. The swirls behind us may be turmoil or wonderful memories, and in every wake the mist slowly closes in again. Maybe before we barrel through we should consider that wake.

Sometimes I consider I have left a big wake. I have pushed through when I should ahve sat back and watched, and I have not looked back when I should have been looking forward and back and at the here and now. In the end it does not matter, because today is today and behind is is past. Hmm.

so as the sun sets on another day, as you trudge forward in this thing called life, take a moment and consider the wake you are leaving and maybe slow down a moment, and smell the flowers, leave less of a wake and more of a ripple, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wow...

The sun sets on another day...

It was cool today, breezy and crisp, the wind blowing and dragging the temperatures down. The cool air felt good, but the sprinkles of rain reminded me more of fall than of the start f summer. Great things abounded today, and some not so great, but even those that were less than great opened doors as they should, and allowed the world to be a better place. then, as darkness waited on the horizon I saw a glimmer of light, and going to a new place, the sunset broke free from the clouds and sprayed a little light on the world.

I am always excited when days give little surprises. Big surprises are not quite as awesome, but the little ones can make a day go better. Sometimes even big ones can make a day more complete, and a nice sunset surprise, well, that can make the world go round. So for tonight, I wish everyone a happy night and hope you consider the surprises you had today and how they made your day a little more fun.

So as the sun sets on another day, I finally found my phone. good thing too, and it was a good surprise since it was on the side of the road. Lfie can sometimes be good surprises on the side of the road, and in the end, life always finds a way. Find the time to enjoy your surprises, and find a little time for you as well, it is worth it. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and start living it...

The sun sets on another day...

Isn't it amazing what can change in an instant? There are so many things that can happen that change your life quickly. It can be good or bad, and in the end, it happens either way because, well, it just does.

Consider tonight. I was out eating BBQ at a new location, and everyone was enjoying dinner. Someone gets up from eating, goes outside, and as they are leaving on their motorcycle, get hit by a car pulling out of the drive through. Icky, bad instant that changed things from good to bad. 

You know the opposite can happen. Walking down the street and you pick up a wallet on the ground, you are nice and call and shortly thereafter you are given a large reward. The possibilities are endless. In the end, all we can do is be the best we are, and make the best of what happens. After all, as long as we live we have the choice between good and bad days, even if some moments are good, and some are bad (some may even suck). We can always choose to be happy.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, take stock and realize that instantly life can change, and in the process, enjoy your moments, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and more, and make the most of your 29000 sunsets, no matter what.

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