The sun sets on another day...
The waves wash on the shores of life and leave a mark. The mark is sometimes warm and inviting, sometimes cold and harsh as the sands of time are worn by the eternal tides. Our lives, much like the shore, are shaped by the tides of life, and the sun and moon that fight to control it all. As amazing as it seems it is still our choice how to proceed, as we were given this life to be our heaven, or our hell. Take a moment and feel the breeze, the waves, the sun and the eve, and enjoy the sunset, and all it means and ever will mean.
Each day remember, the world is a better place because you are in it, and if you cannot believe in that, believe in the sunset that always falls to the west and the sunrise that rises in the east and enjoy their colors.
Sleep sweet, love life, live the truth, and make each day that special moment no one can take away but you...
Passion is more than just a word. Passion gives us the ability to think, to react, to enable change, to find our way to work, and to love other people. Without passion science would falter, medicine would be no more and candy stores would be bereft of candy. (Oh no)
Ever think of it that way?
People in life have many different levels of passion. Some people are passionate about every day and want to make the day special, some people think about the week, the month, the year, but all have a passion for something, even if it is watching reruns of Gilligan's Island and eating Cheetos. Then you have someone like me, who tries to milk every instant of life out of every instant of life, scary huh?
The sun sets on another day...
It is funny how I am going to talk about smell while considering a sunset, or is it?
We often consider a sunset to be a spectacle of light, but it isn't. It is a spectacle of the senses. If you close your eyes in the sunset you can feel the sun shift, and the wind change as the sunlight ebbs and the air cools before you. Your skin will feel the difference. So to will the wind change and the air become a little more crisp, even in the dead heat of summer. If you are in a city, the sounds may change,and you will know the sun is going down, even just by the closing in of a muffled thundering silence that somehow is part of the night.
Our senses are pretty cool if we pay attention. They bathe us in information and if we listen, can walk us towards passion.
As we interact with people so too should we pay attention far beyond sight. It is not the beauty of a person that makes the impression, but also the sound, smell and touch that ignite our passions,and give us the picture of who a person truly is in life. True, actions speak loudly as well, but our first impression is usually based on our senses.
So as the sun sets on another day, and during that glorious shift between day and night, take a moment and close your eyes. and see more than just the colors, but let your other senses have a turn just for a second and when meeting new people, pay attention to them as well.
Sleep sweet, love life, and find your way to happiness, each and every day...
Eeek, the first pass of this post was done in the car while driving in a windstorm and was not as rhythmic as I had hoped. I hope the edit works better....
The Sun sets on another day..
In the movie Fled years ago the statement was made by Laurence Fishburne that everything in life has a rhythm. I believe this is true. For every day as we walk through our lives there is a rhythm to our heartbeat, a rhythm to our walk, a rhythm to our speech, there is even a rhythm to how we interact with different people.
In the world we also see rhythms. There are rhythms in the weather, rhythms in the animals around us and of course rhythms in the Sun rise and Sunsets. It is probably harder to imagine a life without rhythm than to list all of the things that are rhythmic.
In a relationship rhythm is even more important. Our moods and our very lives eb and flow and it is up to us to pay attention to the person we are with in a relationship. As mood rhythms go up or fall down we should be diligent and help the ups to be higher, and the lows far less low.
So as the Sun sets on another day watch for the rhythms all around you and pay attention. A watchful eye may not only help our lives to be better but can help the lives of those people around us. In the process perhaps we should listen to a little music and pay attention to that rhythm is well. Maybe listen to a little bass guitar, and enjoy the moments.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live every moment like it was your last, and dance the night away..j
