The sun sets on another day...

I sat today watching the wind. I know I know, it is hard to see the wind but easy to see the sun and the sunset. I watched the wind because I watched what was in the wind. There were cool breezes blowing, and gusts of pure power pelting the beach. After a time, I closed my eyes and let the moments envelop me, and in the process I heard more, and saw more as the sun cross the sky over me. Getting up, I wandered the beach looking at the world. I saw people enjoying life as it was meant to be, and in the process saw a man pulled from the ground with a kite, and multiple people fighting with the tents. The seagulls though, costed on the wind with no effort, rising and lowering with the gusts, not fighting it, just going with the flow.

Sometimes the positives and negatives of life try to overwhelm us, we walk through the wind fighting it and trying desperately to overwhelm things we cannot truly fight. In the process we become tired, or worse are filled with despair. Instead of trying to walk through the wind, we need to work with the situations we are given, and find that place where we can ride the waves, and find out way though without destroying what we have. We truly need to enjoy the moments, and make our lives happy by avoiding the bad, and walking through the wind.

I see people every day filled with despair, and we need to help, but sometimes the best way to help is to show people a way to succeed without explaining, and find our way and walk the path for others to follow. 

So as the sun sets on another day, remember that every moment of every day can try to overwhelm us, but we can be strong. Strength is not trying to be the strongest, it is knowing when to be the strongest, and when not to be. It is walking through the wind with the wind and not fighting it, it is finding a  way when no one else easily saw it. Take a moment, enjoy your time, and live every day the best you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and walk in the wind...

The sun sets on another day...

It's obvious sometimes that positive thoughts can make us more positive. Negative thoughts on the other hand can do far worse or far better.

It's hard to consider how a negative comment and make things better but sometimes those negative comments are just what we need to open our eyes to the truth. Negative comments can open doors and lead us towards new and far more positive situations. Sometimes those situations are easy to understand. Sometimes the situations are very complicated and it takes us a considerable amount of time fight our way through. It may be that one last negative comment that opens everything and changes our world.

I was in a situation once where someone was treating me poorly consistently. The expectation was that I was the one that had to make everything right and because I always felt responsible I went along with it. In reality there was a tremendous amount of strain on the relationship until a very coarse word was said and I realized I was the only one working on anything. In that moment I realized there was a lot more to life than simply saying you're sorry all the time and trying desperately to make things right so there might be one positive day. In that case the negative created a positive for I found my way out of the situation.

Negatives can also be very bad for us. Negative comments can strip our souls away or even worse. Negative comments can also make us feel less confident and even put us in situations where we lose trust in our self or the people who really care about us. It is important always if you are receiving negative comments consider the source and if they are true. If we are the source of anything negative we should strongly consider why we are doing it. I have been in a situation where I felt constantly on the defensive and it was difficult to come to terms with the fact that the negativity being presented to me was making me mad. It was even more difficult for me to understand that in order to overcome negativity you have to be positive or you have to move on from the situation.

Negativity as a whole,even when it could create a situation that is better, should never be considered a positive. That kind of makes sense as we continue through our lives we should embrace our positives and set aside the negatives both incoming and outgoing.

So as the sun sets on another day dump the negativity, literally. Create a light surrounded by positive people. Create a light that can consistently be the most positive light you can have. In the end was any of that negativity worth it? I would like to think we can all be the best we can be in a positive life no matter what.

 Sleep sweet, love life, and live every single day...

The sun sets on another day...

The Storm was broken for a mere moment and the clouds broke free, casting red and orange shadows on the world. An explosion of color and light that was almost too awesome to behold.

Wow, it was great.

today I was thinking about both positives and negatives and I usually like to take the positive route. I talk to a lot of people from time to time. Not always, but I never avoid a good conversation. In a recent conversation I was considering how much positive was being said and the effect on the actual demeanor of everyone involved.

Don't get me wrong, I understand how many people in the world have to vent. Some vent to me, some vent to others, but people find a need to let the bad out, simply because it makes the feel better. A few kind words or a listening ear may make them feel like nothing is truly wrong, even after their arm fell off (Kidding). My point is maybe we need to shift to a positive line of thinking instead and explain to people just how wonderful they are, or how lucky we are to have them.

It gets a little tiring hearing about the latest disease, maybe we should consider the latest promotion. IF we don't want to hear about the mean people in life, how about the good people.

Today I waled into a fuel station and the woman was positive and her gentleman backup well over the top. Shouldn't we bring them to the forefront instead of the rotten people who get talked about so often. If we talked about the good, don't you think everyone would want to be good? I do.

So as the sun sets on another day, I have an idea. Lets walk past the unkind people of the world and not buy in to the negativity, instead, lets pump up the positive people, and maybe that movement will grow. After all, if everyone was positive the world would be a better place.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be positive, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets many people go to sleep. Long ago, there was little choice as the light was based on how smokey you wanted to be. Today, some people are up forever, but the setting of the sun heralds our journey into sleep.

Over years I have found that sleep is not a place I like to be. I have heard all the statements of how much you need and not need but I find that I know when I need sleep and when I don't. I find I am a rarity. Most people require a lot of sleep, or at least some sleep, but many avoid little sleep. For each there is an advantage. The more you sleep, the more chance for dreams and the wonderful worlds that dreams create. In dreams we find inspiration and a way to a multitude of other worlds. Our dreams become an extra reality and even though some people do not remember them, a place we can see past who we are and feel as though we are part of something different.

In our dreams we also can find our fantasies and live out those things that are not allowed, or beyond our power. The lame can walk, and men can fly and find themselves as supermen (or women) if only they can dream.

Our sleep also opens the doorways to a reset. Those problems from today can be gone, dissolved by the sands of time, and we are ensured of a bad day not lingering. Instead we find a way to a new day with the reset of sleep, and the feel of exciting new possibilities in front of us.

So as the sun sets on another day, even if you sleep little, remember your dreams, live them, understand that dreams can open a gateway to forever, and let you see the world as a better place. Avoid the darker dreams, but instead pay attention to the light hearted fun dreams, and in the process, enjoy every day and every moment, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and dream a little dream...
