The sun sets on another day...

How do you handle a fight? Are you the one who makes up? Are you the one who walks forward? Runs away?

Fighting is inevitable in every life situation as we interact daily and sometimes there are things we just don't agree on. This can be positive in our lives, or be negative, depending on the type of person involved.

I feel occasionally it is a good idea to vent or let something be known. No brutality, but letting passion fly should be more than just a casual thought. 

Once upon a time I was with a woman that would never stay mad, and each time we would even disagree, we would hold each other and there would be a moment of tenderness. She always ran towards me rather than against me.

At the same time I was with a woman who went to bed angry and tried to bury her feelings, and any problems, causing us to disagree even more from time to time.

As the sun sets today remember that life is too short to be angry, hold grudges or make the world a bad place (Unless the grudge is really really deserved) so run towards that person, make yourself a better person, and love life every day. Each day should be a lesson in passion for you and those people who are special in your life, and in the process you will find your way to happiness, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

There are people all over the world that measure their success by money. I know I know, we all do to an extent so we can ensure our survival, our well being, our children's well being and a host of other platitudes that ensure our present and future.

So what is the cost of time? Time cannot be replaced nor bought, nor sold, nor made any better or worse by anything we do. Time just is, and continues, independent of us. Is there anything as precious as time? 

In my opinion, passion is as precious as time. There can be no replacement for the loss of time, and by the same token the loss of passion can never be replaced. I know I overthink when it comes to passion, but I honestly feel that to be complete, you need a balance of many things in life, and one of them is passion.

Perhaps this is on my mind because last night while watching TV for a short time I once again watched NCIS. For those of you that don't watch it there was a hidden love between two people that was both strong and timeless. In the episode I watched one of the two made a decision to find another way, and set herself aside. As the man tried to be flippant she said "you are so..." and his interjected answers were comical, but protecting himself. Her reply to them all was to shake her head and just say quietly, "loved."

As he walked away backwards from the most passionate yet tender kiss you will ever see on television he stated, "hardest 180 I will ever do" and finally turned and got on his plane, allowing her to find her way, but hoping beyond all hopes that someday she would find that way back to him. That type of passion is priceless. If you have it, hold onto it, never let it go as it is more rare than the most expensive trappings. If you want it, hold on, keep your eyes open as it will find you when you are not looking. If you lost it, walked away, made that 180 or made someone make that 180, what you may have lost is priceless as well, but may not ever be truly lost. Lastly, if you don't have it and don't want it, all I can say is I am sorry.

So as the sun sets on another day, smile and live for passion, smile and love for life, make a difference every day to someone, and when someone reaches out their hand, take it and hold on forever...no matter what.

The sun sets on another day...

Today we have a sunset picture in the fog and mist, reminiscent of Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield.

It is always amazing to consider the number of songs that just might fit how you are feeling right now. If you are happy there are literally hundreds of songs that describe your mood, sad, hundreds more, melancholy, still even more, willing to eat melon with a collie, well i have't found that one but I am sure it is out there.

I am constantly amazed by the fact that somewhere out there someone may be going through something similar to you, and even worse (gasp) me!

In that same line of thought (If there is a line to thought) so many people have said there are few new stories in life, and I would challenge there are currently fewer new songs, and even fewer new movies. (After all, they are all "reboots") But wait, perhaps I am wrong. (As happens a lot) perhaps there is a new story every moment and that story could be the story that is more touching than the Notebook, more awe inspiring than Avatar, more interesting than the Harry Potter Series, and more timeless than Star Wars. Maybe it is time for everyone to document their story, and make it a reality.

My point is, it is time to create a new story and do something new, we may feel the same, but our stories are so different. Often we do what is expected, the norm, or something that truly follows some ordained path, but maybe it is time for some new paths. A path towards passion, happiness, and the honest beauty of the sunset. After all, instead of a bouquet of flowers, shouldn't we build a bouquet of sunsets that will never fade and make us all amazed at their beauty for all time?

Anyway, love life, live life, and make today your own, and take the time and make tomorrow yours as well, life is worth it, no matter what....

And now for something completely different...I have changed the podcast to weekly because it is just too much to do daily. You can find it here.

The sun sets on another day...

Each day we make a choice to be happy or not so happy, or of course a pain in the bottom. Each day we make the decision. One more time, each day WE make the decision. There is no one in the world that can truly make you happy, on the other hand, there is no one in the world that can truly make you unhappy. You give each person the power to affect you, one way or another. It is imperative that each person on the face of this planet somehow understand that no matter how bad things are, you can be a positive person, and by the same token, no matter how good things are you can still be unhappy.

This is a personal choice. We can create situations that make you unhappier, or happier, but nothing can truly set the tone or take over our lives but us.

I once knew a woman that had nothing, (and I mean nothing) but she was one of the happiest people I ever met. At church she was always positive and volunteered, tithed (even though she never had money) and made the world a better place by being in it. She defined herself daily by who she wanted to be, and when people put her down she shrugged it off like an elephant would a mosquito. I heard someone ask her how poor she was once, and she said simply, "She was rich in life."

I also have known several people who were well off, and had everything that most people dream of, and are the most miserable people you could meet. One man in particular I know has a beautiful house, wonderful children, an amazing wife, and more money in the bank than most. Is he happy? Absolutely not. He continuously looks like the world is coming to an end, and lives his life without interacting with anyone.

Eeek, I seem to have rattled on.

My point of today, is don't sweat the petty things, or pet the sweaty things and don't let others define who you are, instead make every day that day that will be closer to the happiness you deserve (and it is a lot!). Define who you are each day, and as you do, make every day a lesson in happiness. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish on the farthest star and love your way to it...
