The sun sets on another day...

Today began with a trip trying to see whales. It is interesting when you have a goal that can have no guaranteed outcome. There may be whales, or there may not, but it is their choice, and you have no effect on any of the equation except to be there. This choice allows you to share in the moment, or not share in the moment, but does not guarantee the moment.

As I sat watching the horizon with a doze other people I was happy for the chance at the moment and considered that is true with our lives each and every day. We have no real control over how good or bad our day will be, only how we will accept it and respond to it. A good day for some may be an amazing day for others. What some people see as a disappointment may be an amazing outcome for some others.

We can each be happy with any outcome if we only realize that next time, it may be in our favor. So today, as I came back to the dock with no story to tell or picture to show, I was given a card for a second pass, and knew that next time might be different. 

At bare minimum I met some amazing people on the board, had a fantastic boat ride, and enjoyed every moment. Maybe we all should just enjoy the moments we are give in spite of the outcome and realize we are special, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, lets enjoy it, love it, be happy in it, even if it does not go the way we expected. In the process lets find the way to happiness tough whatever life gives us, and be there with open arms.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live your life like every day is an amazing adventure....

The sun sets on another day...

I read a story today about a man playing violin in a subway and being ignored, the higher point was this man was a famous player and we often do not pay attention to the beauty when it is not where we expect such. As he played people simply walked by and gave no notice.

How many times do we not notice the moments around us?

This week I walked to the top of a mountain and actually saw people looking at the scenery instead of at their phones. It was amazing seeing people engaged in such a way that they had a common awe for the world. Sometimes all that takes is a change of scenery to let us see beyond our normal day to day understanding and to open us up to possibilities.

So as the sun sets on another day, look around, find the special things you may normally overlook and make them part of a wonderful vision you can see, then share it with the world and help them see those special things you see, and maybe they will share a little as well.

Sleep sweet, look for beauty, and find it no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

There is no stop to the movement of the sun, but we must stop from time to time and rest, eat, play games, study, read, and a dozen other things.

We should consider each day the cost of a table and chair in our life, and what it may mean. A place to sit and look face to face, to set down the phone for a moment and learn more about each other. To smile and live and play a little with a favorite pastime, or just to be silent, and enjoy a moment.

It would be nice if we could do that, and sit at our table, and just enjoy.

Wait a second, maybe we can just do that, right? Sit down for a moment now, and set aside all the stuff. Just for a moment, stare up at the trees, and do nothing. It may well give you a moment of peace.

So as the sun sets on another day, find peace for a moment. Not through looking, but through just waiting a moment, and letting it find you.

Sleep sweet, smile, and enjoy the moments, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

What does timeless mean? Is a sunset timeless or finite? Is the sun itself timeless or finite? 

Strange questions I know. Today I have good reasons to consider time. The good and bad, the positive and negative and think about how time is measured, and what truly can be considered timeless.

I use the phrase "No matter what" a lot. It is a timeless phrase if taken literally as it goes on and on, no matter what. (duh) It is funny though that sometimes people say "no matter what" and it is finite, for a moment or less, and then gone. So the bigger question is what promises on earth are timeless or are forever. We have seen so many things come and go, and some may be timeless, and some are only as timeless as the person saying them.

So, as the sun sets on another day I think we should all consider if our word is timeless, or finite. If you say "no matter what" shouldn't it mean exactly that? If we say "forever" shouldn't it be forever within our control? I know, I know, not exactly a timeless post, but perhaps one that may create at least 1 thought on being timeless, and being the best person you can be, the best person we know we are, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, be true, and laugh the night away....
