The sun sets on another day...

Tonight I plowed. Then I plowed some more, then I used the snowblower, then I plowed again. As I plowed I noticed the edges were getting higher and higher. First inches, then feet until finally the driveway was a trough and you could only go trough it and not around in any way.

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a trough? That you have built up things around you that keep you from going where you want to go? Where you need to go? We often create our own pseudo prisons by building up walls to our path, not realizing that another path is just to the side.

So as the sun sets on another day, last night I realized how high the path way, so I knocked it down, just so the dog could get into the yard. It was fun, and it made sense. Sometimes the path is just over the edge of your wall. Knock down the walls and find your own way no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love often, and live free...

The sun sets on another day...

The sky ahead is dark and dim, the front as dark as where I've been, and as I travel towards a place, I know the time is not a waste.

You know, time is only a waste if we let it be. Time is the one things we don't get back, spend when we are not looking, and that item that we all want more of, right? Why then do so many people look forward so much to the future that they miss what is going on right now. I can cite numerous stories, and you can as well, of people who planned for a new time only to find that their time was gone, and they missed the entire point of the moment.

Yeah, I know, who cares? Well, I do. I would rather live every day than worry about the days that are not yet here. I refer to this sometimes as pining for the future and it is not a good use of time in my opinion. Planning a vacation or for some things is OK, but wondering when you will do something should be right out. I talked a lot today about a card I was giving out. The question was, if you only have 29000 sunsets, and it is day 28999, what would you do differently. Now as why you are not doing it today!

The answer will surprise you. Trying to make next week, or next month, or next year, a destination, well, it becomes too easy to put off, and as such the answer is to just stop pining for the future, but instead defining right now, today.

So as the sun sets on another day, guess what. The future will get here. It will get here and be as it is each day, no matter what. Make today, the present, your best day ever, and the future will never seem unexpected or far away, instead every day will be leading you towards the positive, every day will be your day. Make it yours and you should find happiness, no matter what.

The sun sets on another day...

I talked a lot today to a variety of people about defining the present. Sunset was amazing, but it was almost over shadowed with people. After all, people are their own special sunset, and people can make the world as colorful as a sunset.

A while ago I wrote this.

In it I speak a lot about defining your present. Why is then that so many people are stuck in a series of perilous past past times that seem to press them for their lives more than the present. Isn't the present where we should be. Isn't the past just that, the past. I know it is hard, but you have to set aside all those bad tings to get to a better place. Let's do it together. The past is a good teacher, but not a good bedfellow.

Smile for a second and take a deep breath.

So as the sun sets on another day, today is your focus. Find yourself each day, and be that person that learns from the past but lives right now each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your day

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was again spectacular. The sky dotted with colors and snow at the same time. I can think of few moments better than watching a sunset sparkle in the sky.

I am always amazed at how many people say they are sorry for items they have no control over. They say sorry and in a moment become so enthralled by the sorry in itself that they do not realize, it is not their fault. So today, instead of saying you are sorry, instead tell everyone its my fault. It will be easier right? 

The dog made a mistake, my fault.

Car wouldn't start, my fault.

Left the lights on, my fault again.

Overslept, yep, still my fault.

Think of how easy it will be to go on realizing that it just isn't something you did, but it is someone else who is at fault. OK< so, well, that may not work as well as we thought. There is no magic person to blame for everything, even me, but when you think about it it would be easier right? I have always been amazed at the things that were my fault that I didn't even know about, but it is just as telling when you consider how many people take the blame for things they had no control over.

Let's make a deal. If I really do something, let's let it be my fault, OK. If it is your fault, really your fault, I give you permission to take the blame. (Yeah, like you need my permission). In the middle, let's stop taking the blame for all the stuff we have no control over, and give ourselves a little better day, and hey, it really may not be your fault.

So as the sun sets on another day, pick a moment and be happy with yourself. I think you will see it is a super and wonderful time if you let it be! The world is so full of opportunity, lets just set the fault aside for a while and enjoy ourselves, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and make the world yours...
