The sun sets on another day...

The sun is neither urgent nor of slow gait as it crosses the daytime sky. It simply passes over our heads and on to sunset knowing tomorrow will be there.

It is my opinion and of course the core of this site that we are not so lucky. Each day we have the opportunity to do as much as possible in our lives and hopefully be happy along the way. Some people approach each day with urgency, and some people with a lock of urgency. The question of the day is, is there anything we really should approach with a lack of urgency? In fact, if we approach days without urgency are we cheating ourselves? Maybe or maybe not.

I tend to lean towards the urgency side simply because the lack of urgency side always seems to be fraught with issues. Each time I have approached something from a more nonchalant view, I have caused myself more issue that those things I have approached with urgency. Even the failures I have had with urgency, move forward quickly, and are soon in the past. Of course some things translate urgency into some caution and seem like they are not as urgent, but in reality they are just as urgent as those items in the focus.

In life, why not press. In relationships, why do things half way, in family, why wait, with most things the "why" is usually leaning towards urgency and not towards waiting.

So as the sun sets on another day. Consider a kiss. Is the passion and attraction something that is slow and savory, or urgent and necessary. It can work either way, but without urgency it may never begin. Consider all the things in your life, what should wait and what should move forward, then decide how to make those things that are urgent, the things that get done in an urgent manner, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, and enjoy your moments, each and every one...

The sun sets on another day...

I read a cool saying today that stated: "The man who says it can't be done shouldn't stand in the way of the man doing it."

It is funny how apt that statement is in may lives. So often the naysayer gets a lot of attention as they are not taking any chances, they are leaving things alone, and being less than engaged, but that is safe.  I have been in so many situations where it would be easier to just say it can't be done, but that is not in me. (Often to my detriment). There are literally so many things in the world where there is a way that people waltz away from because it will take effort, cause pain, cause unrest, or just be seemingly less than optimal that it staggers the mind. When you sit down to do them though, there is usually a way.

A long time ago I had worked on a considerable number of computer systems. They were quite complex, but nowhere near massive. As I started a new job I was given a task that would have been easy for me on my older systems, but this was a new system that was huge (For the time). I could have walked away, but instead I sat down in front of the massive machine, and found there was an easy way, the same as it was on the smaller systems, and I completed the task quickly. 

I have known a lot of people who have said "We can't" or a worse statement "that is above my pay grade" and they miss the thrill of being able to solve a real problem, simply and efficiently.

When you are tempted to step away instead of just doing it remember that most tasks are easier if you break them down to their smallest part, then move forward, one step at a time until you are complete. The world would be a better place if we only considered how, instead of why or why not.

So as the sun sets on another day, be that person doing something, and pass on the person that is in the way and definitely don't be them. Make the world a better place by being an example of all that can be done, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and get er done....

The sun sets on another day...

I laughed at an old video here. Take a moment and laugh too.

So as the sun sets on another day, just keep singing until the giant disco ball falls!

Sleep sweet, have fun, and enjoy every moment in life!

The sun sets on another day...

Today as I was cleaning up my little area I picked up a cup I have had for some times. I remembered the cup, but I had not thought about it in some time. As I turned it over, there on the bottom was a date and the words, "Love Dad".

Of course, being me, I was a bit overrun with emotion for a few minutes as I remembered the discussions, the thoughts, and the moments that gave me the collectors mug in my hand, but what was even more was the thought that I did not consider this memory more. After all, the memory was a positive one, well before my father died. The memory also was about the reason the particular item was given.

So let's switch gears to the wolf for a moment. The wolf is a family based animal that derives its strength from the social behavior it works within. The pack is strong because of the wolf being strong, and the wolf is strong as the pack is strong. The wolf is loyal to a fault, but when crossed will win as the strength is derived from all of the pack.

So as I sit and stare for a moment at a collectors mug, and the discussion I had so long ago about counting on family, and family counting on you I pass on to you all, believe in yourself and your family. When your day is at its darkest it is they who will be your pack beyond all others and will help you when the times are tough. Find your way with them, and always let them know you will be there too, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy, every day.
