The sun sets on another day...

Ever look at a situation and see more? As the sun rises and the sun sets have you ever noticed how large it looks? It is near overwhelming how much space is taken up as you see the sun in relation to the earth, trees, homes, and other landmarks, but is it really a bigger deal? Is it really larger?

Not really, no. The illusion of a size difference is just do to the relation of the sun to objects we know. The sun stays the same and is minimally distorted, but to us it seems so much bigger.

Is the same true in life? When we see something from a perspective we feel is correct is it possible we are wrong and the issue just seems bigger because of our perspective? If we see something happen and "know" we are right, do we make things bigger than they actually are in reality?

Although I wish it were not true, I feel this happens all the time and we see things from a perspective that sometimes gets lost on us, and in the process, miss the reality of a situation. In doing so we can hurt people we do not mean to, or make poor decisions that affect us for a lifetime. 

The only solution is to consider being a bit calmer and seeing life as it really is, not as we believe it to be and to look at things on a case by case basis, not compared to things we know. After all, if you have never done something, walked in someones shoes, or felt as they felt you have no point of reference, and perhaps no way to judge.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider where you are in life, and be sure you can understand another persons perspective before you make a judgement, or better yet, don't judge at all, and just enjoy the moment.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy every second, big or small...

The sun sets on another day...

Whether the sunset is there or we just believe it is there, it is there. We believe in a lot of things that are not really there though. Contemplate all the things you believe and consider the essence of faith, believing in things you cannot prove.

There are a lot of things we should have faith in, but our friends should be near the top of that list. By that same logic if you have good friends, treat them well so they have faith in you and perhaps it will not be just faith, but truth. Remember words are just words and actions always speak louder, no matter what.

So as the sun set s on another day, believe  in your friends, and live a life that makes your friends a super priority.

Sleep sweet, love life, and believe...

Ever stop and watch the people who interact with the sun and sunset? There are those people who play and frolic and pay no attention to it all. As the sun begins setting they think the fun is at an end and just leave. There are those people who enjoy the sun but watch the sunset with disinterest, living their moment in spite of the beauty around them. Then there are those people who are immersed in the sunset and feel the moment around them, laugh with it, cry with it, but are a part of it.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong about any of those, the only wrong would be the fourth person that lives in a bubble and never goes to see the sunset for whatever reason. Each type of person finds their way as they know, and as they want to be, and there is good in each of those.

So as the sun sets on another day, maybe we should just enjoy a moment, and make it ours, and love the sunset, and go where we are happy, and in the end find our way to happiness.

My opinion.

Sleep sweet, love and love some more, and smile at people, makes them wonder...

The sun sets on another day...

...and time moves forward at its own speed in spite of anything we may do. Stephen King wrote about it so well in "My Pretty Pony" and showed the myriad of differences not in time but in our perception of time. After all we have a unique view on time that most members of the animal kingdom do not share. We go through life considering time and what time is to us, independent of how it either is, or is not really. It is our perception  of time that defines us, not necessarily time itself.

As a child I remember how precious I though time was and wished the days would last forever, now I wish that even more even as I meet and know people who are wishing away time, and their lives by waiting for the end, waiting for children to grow up, waiting for just about anything without walking through it on their own and living their lives. So many people just don't see the moments as they are, raindrops falling on a city grate.

So as the sun sets on another day, take the time to look at your time, and enjoy your moments, for who knows how many raindrops will fall.

Sleep sweet, love life, and take your time, then find a way....
