The sun sets on another day...

The sun and the moon dance constantly Always together but apart. As they pass through the sky in this endless dance we can imagine a never ending friendship for a never ending pair of entities. (that make for good pictures)

Tonight I had dinner with friends. There are so many things to be thankful for when you have good friends, but at the top of my list is the ability to laugh and smile and be yourself with someone who thinks about you without judgement, and will be there no matter what. I have had a lot of good friend sin my life, but only a few who had the capability to be there "no matter what". It is that friendship we must cling to and hold on to as without actions words are just words, and you always know those people who will make your days better just by being there.

There is never enough time to spend with those special friends who are forever so I suggest you just make the time, and make the moments special, and laugh at dumb jokes (usually mine of course) and smile at dumb moments, and be serious, whimsical, passionate, excited, happy and sad together because you truly share a real friendship.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't forget your friends, and hold on to them each and every day, help them understand how special they are, laugh a little laugh, and be the best friend you can be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and smile at the moments, they are pretty terrific!

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets the skies are overtaken with the colors of twilight, and as darkness falls often the stars shine so brightly that you cannot help but wonder how long it would take to count them all. As we revel in the starlight if we are lucky the fireflies surround us and light up our lives just a little more. They are happy and easy going in their search for others, and again bring light to our lives.

Sometimes it is hard to remember that the littlest lights in our life can sometimes bring joy and happiness to our hearts. We should enjoy the small moments as much as the large, and pay attention each moment to every light in our life, no matter how little in may seem. 

When I was very young I remember singling a song, "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine..." and often singing it until late at night until i finally fell asleep. I held on to the little light and never let the darkness that surrounded find a foothold in my life, because that little light would not be extinguished. We all need to do the same and find that little light, however small, that makes our life a better place.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and remember that the smallest light can brighten your day if you let it. Hold on to every moment and light up your life to the high path, each and every day, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, look for the light, and make it part of your heart every day...

The sun sets on another day...

High in the sky the sun rises above, and looks down upon us all, well, not really looks down on us, because it has no personality and doesn't think we are lesser, or well, anyway.

Isn't it easy to get caught in words? It is easy to say things we don't mean,and mean things we don't say.

A long time ago I had a girlfriend that was a little brutal. She made the statement to me once about life, "Don't say it if you don't mean it, and if you really mean it, say it." Of course that was after a daily dose of silliness that should have scared me to become a monk, but it stuck with me for a long time. After all she was also the one who said, "If you were sorry you wouldn't have done it." Which was after I was stuck in traffic behind a wreck and was 5 minutes late to our date night. Fun huh?

The point is, sometimes we need to say things so people can understand our points of view, and sometimes we need to be quiet and listen, so we understand their point of view.  I really don't know if she really got that concept.

Although I have put my foot in my mouth so many times that Dr Scholls makes a mouthwash for me I can honestly say I have listened as many times and found a way to understand the misunderstood, and accept the unacceptable. It is this trait (in my opinion) that makes good people better. Those that at least try to take the high road instead of the self escalating poor communication we often experience are the people that can change the world. In my opinion there is no better use of our time than listening to other people, and no better people to be with than those that want to listen to you.

So as the sun sets on another day, listen. Listen to the sunset, listen to your heart, listen to other people, and find the way to be the best person you can be by taking the high road every time you can.

Sleep sweet, love life, and reach for the stars and you will always find your way to success...

The sun sets on another day...

Yesterday as I watched the sun set (It is storming tonight) I looked slightly to the north and saw 5 clouds. As I looked at how they were lined up I laughed at their semblance to a translation table. Each cloud seemed to have a subtitle that was trying to sat something to the world. The first cloud had a jumping cat under it with its tail trailing in the jump. The second cloud was a swan, with some of it submerged, and the long neck extending out of the water then down again. In the third cloud a prancing porcupine was seen. The fourth a pair of thin rabbit were below and the last cloud was accented by a large raccoon.

I laughed at the clouds with a friend and moments later they were gone, whisked away by the wind, never to be seen again. The positive is of course that I saw them, and so did others and we will remember them (or at least I will) and I enjoyed the moments where my overactive imagination took me away for a moment and made a reality that was super to me.

Sometimes in life we are presenting with brief glimpses and opportunities to see something more, and it is up to us to grasp on to those opportunities and hold onto the moments for as ling as we can, and if necessary hold on to the memories as the situations are whisked away as easy as the clouds were in my sky. If we are lucky, and I know we all can be, we take with us the positive memories, and enjoy the moments we have for every instant we can squeeze out of them, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, if you are presented with something that you know you should see, enjoy it for every second, and in the end you will have made a new memory, and perhaps found a way to personal growth. At minimum, you will have a few minutes to tell a cool story about a few clouds grazing across the skies.

Sleep sweet, love life, and imagine the world as it should be, then make it happen...
