The sun sets on another day...

The sun rises, the sun sets, and it is what it is no matter how you think it should be, you accept it simply because it is perfect the way it exists, or at least there is no way to change it.

I find it funny how people try to change other people. Some people don't of course, but many people see someone else and try to say they should be another way, or degrade them to a point that person needs to change. In reality, people are perfect just the way they are, not just today, or yesterday, but every day they exist and the only person who can judge or change them is themselves. Now don't think that means every person is perfect, but instead realize every person is perfect for themself. They do not need someone to explain their flaws, they are well aware of them. Instead they need people to pick them up, and press them to a higher level by showingt hem the good in themselves.

I had someone in my life once that judged each thing I did. They tried to make my life miserable by deciding what I should be doing, even if it was not to any benefit. I would like to think they found someone perfect for them, but I know they were unhappy with me, and I was unhappy with them. This was not for anything more descriptive that they wanted me to be something else.

This weekend at an author fair I had the opportunity to meet someone who was happy with themselves, and who their significant other was extremely happy with. The husband let the world know in front of a huge stack of authors, that he supported his wife in every endeavor no matter what. Sure, he knew she had responsibility, but he was excited and happy to be a part of what she was doing, and was an integral part of it all.

The point is, we are who we are, and not who anyone wants us to be. We need to realize that no change is necessary, but any change is possible. We need to be those people that love life, and ourselves above all others, and live for every moment.

So as the sun sets on another day, guess what, you are great just the way you are right now. If someone doesn't like it, it is not your problem, it is theirs. Be who you need to be, want to be (As long as you are not hurting others) and make the world a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, Feel the breeze, and love til the mornings light...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets the silence is deafening as it slowly slips over the horizon. It makes its presence known by action and reaction, and we are part of an outstanding moment in each day and every sunset or sunrise we experience. Subtly overpowering.

People are far less predictable. There are those who are social overwhelming and can make the world their own even if the world resists. They will take the stage and be confident in the face of uncertainty and make even the most awkward situation  a good one.

There are those people that are in their own social circle and interact with their friends and acquaintances, but are not affected by those outside. 

There are those that feel fear about all social interactions, and hold back their moments in favor of silence, solitude, and situational singularity.

Then there are many others. The point is, in my opinion, we have only one life to live. I am sure alone is ok, and with only friends is ok, but worrying about what anyone thinks is not. We need to take a step in another direction and look at what we want to do, and do it, see where we want to be, and go there, and along the way, dance like no one is watching.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't worry, be happy. Don't worry, be alive. Don't worry if its not good enough for anyone else, whatever it is, and make the day the best day it can be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live for the moment, and beyond....

The sun sets on another day...

Sun. A small word that is pretty bright. (Well, the thing it represents is pretty bright.)

I often find myself in a carefully constructed quandary. People are polite and prudent but not as productive as they could be. People pass and are pleasant and give verbal variants of values and more with much verbosity.


I dated a girl a long time ago (In a galaxy far far away) that always used to tell me "Say what you mean, mean what you say, and if you mean it, say it". Now she was also the one who said, "If you were sorry you wouldn't have done it" so I am not sure I can count her as an authority, but she was right in the center of the issue. You should say what you mean, and mean what you say. Words can be powerful and exciting, they can carry us to new heights, or, if weaponized, can rend us as effectively as and knife. So  we should be very careful with all we say and do.

So who cares, right? Well, we should all care as our world is full of such carefully constructed language that the truth is sometimes lost in a miasmic shroud of consonants and vowels. 

When the sun sets sometimes things are hidden, but light brings out the truth, always. Maybe it is time for truth. Happiness and love, and kindness, and respect have to be more than just words.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't get lost in the moment. Don't get lost in the series of ever changing colloquialisms, but instead, speak what you feel and who you are with people. Be forward, and happy, and be the person you should be. Try to follow a higher road, and enjoy communicating with others, telling them how you feel, and making the world a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, don't let the bedbugs bite, and love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

I think it is funny searching the internet for words sometimes. I was thinking about the sounds of this when I went ahead and searched to try to understand why in the heck anyone would ever say that about or to a cow. There were of course several origins and explanations for the saying, some scholarly and some silly, look it up. The one I liked was the idea that the brown cow was actually a beer cask and people we asking for beer. That was the one that actually made sense.

Sometimes we have to look deeper to understand what people are saying. Why in the world would anyone ever say "How now brown cow" or "See ya later alligator" if there was not some deeper meaning from long ago. At least "Busy as a bee" seems to make sense.

Maybe we need to listen to people and determine what they are saying before we make assumptions. Words can have so many meaning and people can interpret them so many ways that it often turns into a battle of trying to understand what can or cannot be easily understood. In the heat of the moment we can misinterpret and make bad choices, so instead, if you are going to misinterpret, make good choices. Right?

Take a moment, consider the positives, and consider the words you need to say. Also, take a moment and truly listen to what is being said to you, and take it to new level, and understand the people that you hear. In this world of text and email, a lot gets lost, but you can rise above it and find a way to be communicative, and happy. No matter what.

Sleep sweet, listen, and hear the words that I'm saying...
