The sun sets on another day...

Sometimes as the sun sets you can feel the emotion. Sometimes it is nearly overwhelming. Caught in a moment you can almost feel the feelings swirling around like marshmallows it sticks to you but feels good at the same time. (Well, maybe not, but it is a try)

People are sometimes equally capable of making emotions flow as powerfully. Today as I watched a powerful presentation about a youth center I considered how so many people do not get a chance in life to see beyond themselves and would do near anything to break free. It is in this that we as a people need to help each other up, and in the process lift ourselves up further.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember you are not the center of the universe (This may be a tough one), but you are the center of your universe, and if you have the privilege to help someone, do it, and that privilege will help you see a new tomorrow, perhaps to the moon and back, and the stars beyond.

Sleep sweet, love, and live, simple words to live by each and every day.

The sun sets on another day...

 It starts in the morning, first a wave of light, slowly rising, a spark that becomes a fire, and a fire that becomes a flame. The sky ignites with light, far more intense than can be believed until all that exists is revealed by its illumination. It folds us, envelopes us with warmth and caresses us with power and humility. The day passes and we are safe in the light. As time wanes, slowly the light fades until we see the colors attack the skies, fighting for every moment, holding on with every passing second, trying, yearning to be alive still, and not to fade.

Perhaps this is true for each day, but perhaps it too is true for us, a spark can start it all, and the passion of a flame follows, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, find the passion of your light, and never let that flame fade. Hold on, and keep the time until the end, and be a keeper of passion, for all time.

Sleep sweet, love life, and believe in the passion each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

We consider...

We really don't have a choice but to consider each night. Consider our days, our nights, and all the in between.

We hope that we will see hope spring from everyone, but pray it will spring from our family, our loved ones, our friends.

We hope that our days will turn out right, and even if we don't think today is right, we hope tomorrow is right for us all.


I hope all of this each and every day, but I also believe in me, and I take more than hope with me each day, and I want everyone who reads this to do the same. Instead of hoping, take action, be that person, the best person you can be. Be the person people see stumble, but never fall. Be that person who people believe in, and more. Be the best, so others can follow in your example, and in the end, the world will be a better place.

So as the sun sets on another day, trust, believe, and hope, but be part of the solution and do more than just hope, be a force for change, and a force for good, no mater what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and smile every day...

The sun sets on another day...

I remember when I was a child in the fall in Indiana gong to the maple tree farms and seeing how maple syrup was collected, boiled down, and made into a sugary sweet treat as either candy, sugar, or a topping for breakfast. It was always crisp and cool outside, and always a treat on a those chilly days. The times in my life were bittersweet, but the moments like this amazing and a way to focus on the truly good things in life.

As we walk through another day take a moment and consider a positive childhood memory. Consider the feel of the air, the taste of something sweet, the sounds that made you happy, the smell of excitement. Now hold onto that moment and make it a part of today and every day.

It is easy for many to remember the bad, but let's remember the good of our past and take the feelings forward, making them part of an even better moment for now, tomorrow and beyond.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the happiest times in your life, commit them to the forefront of your memory. Don't focus on the bad, and instead believe in the good, the positive, the powerful and in the process build a happier day from a happy day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love candy, and enjoy life every day, to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...
