The sun sets on another day...

It is Halloween once more. Last year I simply wished for us to be thankful for our children. This year, perhaps is a little different.

As we watch the sun set, there are colors changing ever so slightly, a shimmer appears and disappears as the sun passes behind it, and we are usually a little apprehensive or at least excited as the sun passes forward quickly, and suddenly is gone.

Today we celebrate Halloween. Once a celebration of the hearth, and often a journey into fear, or is it? Someone special gave me a book some time ago called The Thrill of Fear, and this week I have seen several special that reaffirm the idea that we are excited by fear, and that emotion can make us motivated in so many ways. Sometimes it is motivation to fight, sometimes to learn, sometimes to run like heckie derns, but always there is an emotion and emotion is the center of passion, right?

Perhaps we need to consider on days like today when children are running for candy as we did so many years ago, that there is a certain need for fear, or at least motivation to see passion in a new way.

No matter what, enjoy this eve of fun, and enjoy the moments tomorrow as we all start a new month.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy life, even if it is a little scary, and make the best of each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, don't be afraid, and love life, each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Sing, sing a song ,Sing out loud, Sing out strong, Sing of good things not bad,Sing of happy not sad.

Sing, sing a song Make it simple to last Your whole life long Don't worry that it's not Good enough for anyone Else to hear Just sing, sing a song.

Sing, sing a song Let the world sing along Sing of love there could be Sing for you and for me.

Sing, sing a song Make it simple to last Your whole life long Don't worry that it's not Good enough for anyone Else to hear Just sing, sing a song.

 To me the important line in this fun son was "Don't worry that it's not Good enough for anyone Else to hear". It really is not, the truth is we need to be accountable to ourselves first, and do the best we can to be happy and hope to bring others with us along the way. A simple post for the day.

So as the sun sets on another day, just enjoy life and be true, and the rest should fall into place.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it each and every day!

The sun sets on another day...and there is beauty hidden here...

As I drive I am often amazed at the number of things I see briefly, and then realize they are beautiful in a sea of less than beautiful. There are so many places where beauty exists that it is not noticed. As we drive, walk, fly or just pay attention we can often see a sight that many others would miss. Often when I am in the car with people I ask "Did you see that" only to find they are lost in other things, phones, or mild daydreams and not paying attention to the world.

In life, we should pay attention to everything always. I know it is easy to disagree, but I feel strongly that there is beauty to be seen, not just in the things we see, but the people as well. Last night I met a host of really amazing people who were trying to make a difference, their imagination unfolded in front of me as I talked to them and they were truly beautiful. At the same time I was visited by many people and I found quickly that some friends and family truly believe in who and what I am, as much as I believe in them. 

So as the sun sets on another day, pay attention, and look for the beauty in everyone and everything, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy with it everyday...

 

(Oh and the hidden beauty, is at the top of the picture, blown up here)

The sun sets on another day...

Ever notice how sometimes when the sun sets your shadow gets longer and longer until finally all that is left is shadow? As the sun sets, that shadow grows as the light fades from the sky, and in the end, you cannot easily see where your shadow ends and the darkness begins. Most people don't as usually their shadow is behind them.

In life there are lots of people who shine great light upon us all, and cast shadows as we walk through. Those people can show us the light in ourselves and we need to remember to leave the shadow behind us, and always take the high road. We should all focus on the light in our life, and enjoy the moments and the positives we have each and every day, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, set the shadow aside, and if you can, be a light that shines on us all, and gives us hope, maybe, just maybe, we won't have to worry about nightfall, and instead the light of our happiness will shine on

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