The sun sets on another day...

We know for sure from a fun movie that candy is dandy but liquor is quicker. It is with that relatively inane idea that I put today to rest, a day where the considerations of people and passion have been near overwhelming. 

Consider for a moment how we fit in the grand scope of life, and find a way each day to be as happy as you can be. Consider each day that you are special, and of course consider each day what a fantastic day this is, and how we can live it to our best, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on this day, smile for a moment and think about how happy you should be that this day is the best day of your life, and tomorrow will be as well if you only let it. Let the day be special, and find your way to happiness!

Sleep sweet, love life, and find passion in every instant that it is there...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun is lucky in some ways, unlucky in others. It can burn hot with no emotion, burn wild without passion, flare up without anger, and simply exist without feeling. Lucky in some ways, unlucky in others.

Today as I walked into a gym a person was not in good control of their feelings. The problem with his anger was he was adamant he was right, but as I listened and learned, he was simply flat wrong. He was holding people responsible and making them uncomfortable for something that was not only outside of their power, but a matter of law. As I sat listening I paused and said the director of the gym was a nice guy and he should call in the morning, and kept quiet but did not leave. Moments later he left, slowly dealing with uncontrolled anger.

Anger and passion are tricky bedfellows. In my opinion the best way to have a great relationship is to skirt that line and realize that the passion is far more important, and never let the anger take hold. Instead be patient and come to terms with the fact that wasting time on anger is wasting time in your life, it rarely serves a purpose and when it does it is not always the best purpose. Patience and passion will win out nearly all the time if you just let them, take a moment, listen, learn, and then react in a way that works more effectively than losing control.

I have been angry. We were close friends once. Occasionally I see anger in the distance, brought forth by situations that seem out of control, but as I listen, I have found a way to walk away from the anger and found a patient passionate peace. I hope everyone reading can do the same. It takes practice, but the start is listening and knowing yourself.

So as the sun sets on another day, why not avoid anger and instead enjoy its close cousin passion all you can, every day. In doing so find find a way to happiness no matter what.

Sleep sweet, sleep peacefully, and push out the anger in your heart with a passion for life....

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun rockets across the sky it seems to speed up at the end, being consumed by the twilight that will in turn by overcome by the night. That last few instants of light it appears the sun has gone into overdrive, pushing the limits to make certain it gets where it is going, with a sense of urgency.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had access to that in life? We could easily get more done more often if we simply took the moment to press, and get it done instead of staying the same. Life should be happy each day and as we embrace it, shouldn't there be an urgency to our happiness? Shouldn't there be an urgency to giving others happiness?

I was thinking about dancing recently and how I usually end up on a dance floor as one of a few men, while many sit back and watch (and laugh at my goofy dancing). It would be nice if everyone would take the sense of urgency and know that tomorrow we may not be able to dance, and today is a massive gift for us to do so. (Even if you look goofy like me)

So as the sun sets on another day, sing in the rain, dance like crazy, and realize that for everything you do, urgency is usually a necessity, no matter what. Take the moment, grasp the day, and make today the best possible day it can be, until tomorrow comes.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be goofy sometimes, so I won't be alone out there...

The sun sets on another day...

As I threw the Frisbee tonight and watched an amazing sunset I was amazed as always with the sheer beauty that surrounds us. I smiled as everything from the rolling dunes, the long winter grass, the pummeling waves, and the huge dog tongue that kept returning to me with the Frisbee made me appreciate the moments and the time I had to spend here. As the breeze blew and the cool air came off the lake, even though it was cold, it was warm and embracing as a new memory, a new sunset, and something to be appreciated.

I have said this before, watch what you take for granted. If you think about it, the entire premise of 29000 sunsets revolves around that simple thought. Never take anything for granted. There is so much to be thankful for, that sometimes we don't see it until it is gone. So no matter how small you think something is, be aware it may not seem small if you look at it through different eyes.

When we talk to people, we listen to people, and should be thankful for what they have to say and hear. We see a sunset, and should realize it is the only 1 of its kind. We see a snowflake and know the same. There are a myriad of daily things we overlook. Sometimes we should overlook some of them as we would go start raving mad if we counted grains of sand and the like, but we should pick something each day and be thankful and not take it for granted. Maybe the secret will be to measure our gratitude and in the process perhaps find a way to be happier, each and every day, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, look for random things that are important, and don't take them for granted, instead enjoy them, be happy with them, take note of them, and perhaps become a happier person, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the sunset, it is amazing...
