The sun sets on another day...

The sun races across the sky each and every day with no worries about the race. It is what it is, and the race is not a race. Well, it is a race of one.

When people interact they are often on separate but similar paths. It is important to remember that each of us need to run our own race first, not the race against others. When we race against ourselves we can achieve the best we can because we know our limits and in the process, we have an opportunity to win the entire race. It is my opinion by running your own race and not looking over your shoulder you have the opportunity to win each and every time.

So as the sun sets on another day, run your race, find your pace, and make it work for you in spite of everyone else, no matter what.

Seep sweet, love life, and live it each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets it moves in a predictable manner and we just know where it is in the sky. It simply is where it should be.

The movie "Buckaroo Banzai" gave us the statement "No Matter where you go, there you are" as it was addressed to Penny Pretty. The movie was a little off, but we tend to use that statement a lot as we go through life and we should continue to remember that we are the sum of where we go, the sum of what we do, how we speak, who we are with, how we react, and of course our current location. Saying we are where we are seems pretty silly, but in reality, some people don't acknowledge they are where they are enough. They don't see how they got where they are both good and bad, and need to remember, the journey is part of getting there.

So as the sun sets on another day, set a course, dream a dream, and see the world before you, and when you get where you wanted to go, there you are.

Sleep sweet, love life, and you do matter, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun is silent, well, mostly. I would describe the sun as being oppressively silent or creating a thundering silence. The sun does what it does. The sun is never sorry for it is the purest expression of truth, well, pretty much predictability and maybe not exactly truth, but purely predicable. Funny huh?

We as people are not so lucky. We are highly unpredictable and as such prone to fun things that really are not as fun as you would think. Or are they?

We can be the most compassionate beings in the universe, and sometimes we can be the least compassionate. Our motivations do not always align with what we need to accomplish, and sometimes these motivations can hurt people. As stray word can destroy a person, or a stray word can build a person up. 

My suggestion is consider what you are saying each moment of the day and ensure you stay positive and bring people up with you, and make sure you say to a person the same as you would say when they are not there. It is the only way to stay true. Also, consider who you are talking to and truly talk to them, know them, understand before you "speak your mind".

I have a friend who speaks their mind to me all the time, but we are always the purest of friends because they are truthful and respect me and my opinion as much as they respect their own. (and vice versa) Even if others think we were mad, we are not, and in the end we place that respect towards each other with no question. In my opinion this is the purest communication. That communication that makes us complete and ensures we understand other people.

I have another acquaintance that speaks to everyone differently. The things they say to one are different to another, all set aside to ensure they are seen in a positive light and in the process they become seen in a negative light. That type of communication finds its way back to the people you speak to and to the ones you don't. Don't be a part of that negativity, and instead find a positive road to make the world a better place.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider your words, stay positive, avoid negative, and be a person that can be respected, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live each day with power and passion, then pass it on!

The sun sets on another day...

If you consider the matter of matter the sun is a matter maker/un-maker of the extreme type, taking matter and making more matter like it matters, and we often don't realize it matters. Does this matter? Maybe not.

What matters is sometimes we really don't realize what matters until it matters to us. Boy this is long and drawn out.

Tonight I was at a pot luck with a variety of people from young to old. During the conversation it was brought up how things just don't appear to matter as much as they used to, and the things that seem to matter don't really matter as much as the things we know longer think matter. In that vein I give you a few things that matter in my opinion:

  • Having clear vision - This does not mean having a forever plan, but more to knowing who you are and where you are going.
  • Have honesty in your heart - Show me a truthful man and I will show you a, well, lets say it is rare, but at minimum be honest with yourself, so many people lie to others so much they believe the lie. Instead tell the truth so much it hurts, literally. (and have proof if you need it).
  • Be secure in who you are - This is sometimes well overlooked, but know who you are and be happy. So many people are looking so hard for who they want to be they don't realize how special they are in the world.
  • If you need to change, make your vision work - I am not a strong believer in people changing who they are, but it is possible with enough help and heart. If you need to make a change, commit to it, make it, and never undo it.
  • Sing -It makes your heart dance.
  • Smile - it affects the world more than a change in the weather.
  • Laugh - It does good things for you, and for those around you.
  • Love - Not that sappy love you see on silly TV shows, but the deep love that knows no bounds, with someone who would do anything for you, and who you would do anything for, no matter what.
  • Make friends - and not out of clay, make friendships that are impenetrable, and be the solution for your friends as they are the solution for you.
  • Have a clean handkerchief- Well, had to add it just for fun from the movie "The Big Brawl" because it sounds good.

I am sure I could go on for days and all of you for far longer. Life is just a series of matters that you need to address, then move on to the next one. In the end, it will matter because you matter. 

So as the sun sets on another day, remember you matter. Look into the mirror and see the wonderful person you are, and in the process realize we can all make each others lives better, for don't the bulk of there items take two or more to make a reality? It matters! You matter, we matter, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, matter more, worry less, and love life every day...
