The sun sets on another day...

The sun has an impressive thundering presence on our lives and speaks volumes to the world each and every day. Even in its silence it makes an impact. 

Hmmm, silence with an impact. I have written indirectly several times about silence and how it can be a bad or good thing. (The biggest probably here) Silence seems to have an impact on our lives often. In an argument the silence can be the difference between winning and losing. Silence can be a way to stop anger and aggression by letting it cool and not be fanned. Silence can be the ultimate weapon, hurting with its emptiness.   Deprived of input, the mind replaces silence with some awful possibilities. The silence turns a simple trip to the bathroom into a horrible accident, a walk to a Starbucks into a horrid affair, and a trip to the country into a fate worse than death.

Silence can speak peacefully more than a thousand words. It can make a bad situation good, and bring out the best in people. The silence of a tender heart can be so loving it melts the most brutal heart. In the Star Trek episode "The Empath" a mute speaks with far more than words, and in doing so changes the heart of fear, and embraces life for a planet. The main character has no vocal chords but it was masterfully played, and the result was a near silent portrayal of an amazing woman. 

The point is, that silence does not have to mean anything bad, instead it may mean people are just busy, listening, or thinking of the right thing to say. Silence can be something good, or something bad, that has nothing to do with you. Skip the silence and move forward with communication, and maybe life will be better. Perhaps not perfect, but at least better, right?

So as the sun sets on another day, skip the silence, and instead communicate and make the sound of laughter your defining grace. (It sounds good at least) If you need to be silent made sure that everyone knows it is for a good positive reason, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and have some fun each and every day!

The sun sets on another day...

The sun just is. It is because it is, and nothing we do will change it. Somehow we just know and respect that. There are certain things we cannot change and in our species we realize this, and move on.

Why then do so many people try to change for others, or try to get others to change for them? Is it so hard to believe a person could be something different than they have portrayed. Of course there are subtle changes but there is no way to make a person a different person, and when you see the true person, you cannot expect them to be different than what they are. (there is a confusing thought)

I was with someone once that always wanted me to be different, and told me how I felt. At the same time I tried to show them the light of something better. It may not have been the best, but it was not the worst. In the process a conflict was set up that made us both unhappy in a variety of ways, and in the end, well, it became the end.

Sometimes we have to accept what is, and either live with it or find a new path. Simple sounding but often true. Just remember you are who you are and other people are who they are, and you just have to accept it, not think you can change it.

So as the sun sets on another day, be who you are, that is a pretty special thing. Don't believe for a moment that someone else is any less special than you, and maybe, just maybe the world will be a better place.

Sleep sweet, be yourself, and love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond.

The sun sets on another day...

As winter closes in on us it is difficult to see the warmth here just a short time ago. Somewhere in our hearts it remains, held b y us as a flame waiting to once again become a fire.

As people we have an amazing capacity for passion. The warmth in our hearts and souls can light the world, create a new app, build a new city, win a contest, feed the hungry or just excite another person beyond the realm of belief. Passion is a funny thing, it has no substance, but you can feel it all around you; it has no power but it can electrify; it has no emotion, but can evoke the most intense emotions we will ever know. 

It is funny. We see Star Wars playing a lot now and one of the main characters in the Star Wars series is the force. Perhaps the force is a subset of passion, surrounding us and binding us, it can control us but listens to our will, it can be used for good, and there is a dark side. Hmm, interesting thought at least. In the end passion is what drives me every day to write, to live, and to try to make a difference. Perhaps it will be a small difference, but perhaps the force will be with me, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, no matter how cold it is, passion can make yo feel warm. Embrace it and know the future will be better because of you.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be passionate about something, lest you stand for nothing....

The sun sets on another day...

 Often in life we see a moment go by and realize much later it was a special moment, then we consider the what ifs in life as we ponder all the moments before that moment and it can be a real mess. 

Sometimes a special moment should be a special moment and when it passes it should just be remembered as a special moment, even if it will never be again. After all, you will never learn to ride a bike twice, because you will remember it. Your first kiss may be amazing, or your first amazing kiss amazing, and so forth and so on. The point is, life has a multitude of special moments and in those moments we become the special people we intend to be. Don't ruin the special moments in life by trying to recreate them, or make them something they are not. Instead, remember the moments you have in life as they are, and treat them as they were. Don;t over play or downplay them, instead remember them as the fantastic experience they were, and make your life amazing each day.

So as the sun sets on another day, believe in your amazing life, and remember all the good times as the best times in your life, and let the bad times slide by, no matter what.

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