The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set this evening there were many people walking by. Some were watching the colors slowly fade into the water as the sun set. Some where focused on themselves, and others were focused on those around them. Many would say "hi" as they passed, some with true meaning, some with positive indifference, and some with just indifference.

It is always eye opening to me to see how people interact and to consider the motivations they have inside. I always try to consider for a moment the stories they see, the stories the are, and the stories they become.

Years and years ago there was a movie called "Brainstorm" that presented peoples memories (and even their entire being) as memories within memories, and motivations that were born of previous actions and interactions. The anger being felt not being felt for the situation, but for a previous situation that reminds us of a deeper memory that was less than pleasing. The elation in a similar manner was exciting and new but grew based on the depths of positive experiences in a persons past. Sometimes we can a moment and cannot put our finger on why, I usually find a reason if I think about it, but sometimes it is better not to think about it and just enjoy it. (I wrote about one such item here.) The world is not like a movie, but it is an adventure daily that we can enjoy!

The trick is, in my opinion, in having more positive memories to hold on to than negative memories. I hear all the time about peoples bad childhoods, but those bad childhoods made them good people. Let go. Lots of people talk about the bad situations over the good when there are just as many good things to consider daily. I know the world will never be a place that is always good, but it is important to remember it will never be a place that is all bad either. Maybe, just maybe we should consider talking about the good things in our lives when we talk to people, and considering why we react the way we do when we think otherwise. After all, we have a story, but it may be based on a  a story, which could be based on another story, which has the truth buried within. Make sure that truth is a truth and not a supposition. 

Sorry if this is a ramble, but one of the people walking by tonight was lost in a bad place, and it pointed out this whole line of thinking as he walked by in a huff, angry at the world with no reason to be. 

So as the sun sets on another day, lets make good memories together, and find the positive sin our life daily to make better choices, better decisions, and to make the world a better place, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, love life, and make every day the best day it can be...

As the sun sets on another day...

Whether sailing or steaming, driving or walk
Whether flying or flailing, remember this thought
Time waits for no one, and neither do you
So find your great passion, and make it come true.

Sleep sweet...

The sun sets on another day...

Wow, the days are getting ridiculously amazing. The cool breeze is blowing across the lake making it crisp and fragrant and slightly cooler. The trees are billowing slightly and as the day ebbs, there is a color to the sky that is beyond deep blue, mixed with the puffy clouds and reflections shimmering off leaves and flowers. I watched a bee on one of my flowers taking his time parading through the small flowers in the petals and smiled as a butterfly landed close to him, and began wandering around as well.

As Luna and I wandered though the yard we enjoyed the moment and she bounded around like a puppy as the sunlight glistened on her snow white fur. 

It is easy to forget these times, the peaceful times, the easy times, those times that make subtle memories of how life should be. Yet as the sun slowly heads to the west we all are making similar memories. Of good times and of challenges. Of positives, and of those things we will overcome. In the end everything is as best as it can be, and by living our and enjoying the moments, we make our lives better.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the simple times, and commit these subtle positives to memory to enjoy for the rest of your life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be amazing, every day...

The sun has already set, and I add once more...

Today I spent some time with a lot of people who just care. It was interesting as there are so many in the world that just plain worry all the time. At the end of my fun filled day as I was leaving we met with one of the people who had attended my presentation and I noticed her necklace. It was a nice pendant and I am always curious about the things people have written on their pendants (As it is always variable, and usually interesting).

I found the pendant contained the Bob Marley creed, Everything's gonna be alright. It inspired me and reminded me of so much. A literal flood of memories later I went home, wrote a short post, and considered how to approach this phrase once more. Some time ago I started writing about EGBAR (Everything's gonna be all right) here. It was a good start, but it really has not said all that needs to be said. I know that after this there again will be so much more as well.

So consider, there is never really a reason to be down or worry, there is always a way for everything to be alright. I know Bob makes it easy, three birds and then just believing but maybe it truly is that easy. If you believe it will not be alright, we have seen that it finds a way not to be, so if we believe it will isn't it probable we can find a way to make it alright? Maybe the easy method is to consider that we should not worry about the small things and instead should focus on the best we can do, and true to form, everything will be alright. When the storm is crashing down, everything's gonna be alright. When life has got you down, everything's gonna be alright. When times are blue, everything's gonna be alright. When life is true, everything's gonna be alright. So weather the storm, and just enjoy!

No matter how it is, the song is good, and will take us to a least a happy place, and you can listen here.

So as the sun has already set, listen to the music, enjoy the moment, and remember, everything's gonna be alright...no matter what.
