The sun sets on another day...

Around and around we go, where she stopped, well, never. She will not stop. The sun will sit in the middle and we will rotate around and around. (and around and around)

Life seems to be full of cycles. An ebb and flow of people and situations and plots that seem complex, but are not necessarily. It appears sometimes that something new and exciting is happening, but it is usually a repeat of another situation that is may not be all that unique.

As I write I find topic after topic that interconnects with topic after topic and it becomes quickly obvious that the patterns and cycles in life are patterns and cycles.  At the core of them, is us, them people who know who them are. (In my best fun accent, you pick)

Who cares, right?

Today as I sat in an airport watching a mass of people migrate from place to place, I watched for these patterns for a moment and they repeated patterns I had seen when I traveled last. The parents in a hurry, the traveler lost for a moment, the people lost in their technology and a dozen other patterns walking by. Suddenly the time was done and I had to move on, knowing the patterns would go on without me.

What are your patterns? Are you that person who is predictable, or do you find patterns that are not normal patterns and walk a different path?

It may seem like an easy question, but look around. It may not be.

So as the sun sets on another day, it is my opinion we should be that person that finds a way to break the cycle. That person that goes an extra step, and finds another way, each day, enjoying life along that way. Take a moment and think about who you are and what you do, but in the process, how do you fit in the world, and opened you life to a new cycle.

Sleep sweet, smile bright, and enjoy the moments, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

The sun paints a picture in the sky. tonight it was lit up like a pure powerhouse of golden light, ensuring all around us were impressed and impressed upon by the light that gives us all life. There are no words that can describe the vision I beheld and truly give it justice, and of course, with sunset so early, I was still working as the sun crossed over the horizon. No fair.

Today i was working with a variety of people and wondered about how communication makes the world go round. We are all creatures of communication. Of course there are exceptions, there are people and groups that feel that their point is so valid, no other point matters. These are the exceptions rather than the rules. Most people like to communicate, to talk, to laugh and to be a part of something. Whether it is a relationship or a group of people, communication gives us validity in life.

I found it interesting today that some people were very positive communicators, and some were not, but all people wanted to communicate. There are, whoever, two parts to communicating. Once side is talking, but the other is listening. In my opinion listening should not be gauging your next answer, but working to understand, and to truly see through someone else's eyes. 

So as the golden hue slides down the infinite easel of sky dragging darkness behind it but lighting the world with colors that are things of dreams, or sets on another day, take a moment and listen. Take a moment and see beyond yourself, and perhaps open your eyes to a series of moments that make the world better. I too will try, because in the end, it is worth it.

Sleep sweet, love life, and communicate...

The sun sets on another day...

There are pathways each day in our life. 

Tonight my pathway is not laid out before me. I need to choose what to write about. There are so many things to consider, and even more to be thankful for each day. I can speak of pathways and the infinite number of ways we can move forward each day. If I did I would talk about how we should make our choices to the betterment of ourselves, and the betterment of others. I could talk about how each decision we make, makes our day new and fresh, and how spending time each day gives us a pathway in itself.

I could also talk about chaos. The need for the world to be in motion all the time. I could talk about people who find themselves in fantastic situations and rise to them, or people who find themselves challenged, by health issues or other issues. Things like cancer, heart disease, or just a cold, can seem to block us and create chaos, but there are many who make chaos into order and find a way.

Or I could take about peace. About finding that peace that just means you don't have to worry about anything. No worries about strange situations, or fiery problems. Instead just a calmness that can only be described as peaceful. (Peace, get it) Peace can show us a path unto itself and in the process, make the world a better place by giving us that peace.

I have pathways, and choices, but tonight, I think I have made a choice in itself, and listened to the things on my mind, and given myself my own choice.

So as the sun sets on another day, find your pathway, and make it a pathway to success, to excitement, make it a pathway to a better choice. Find a moment and live in and overcome chaos and make order, and mostly, as you search through the moments, find peace, and make life a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, find a magic moment, and make it last a lifetime...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun rises and sets it crisscrosses the landscape, for rising in the east and setting in the west does not determine which part of the east, nor which part of the west it will set. It depends fully on the season.

The number of people we work with, run into, become acquainted with, love, hate, like, dislike in our lives is truly staggering. Estimates range from 30,000 to 90,000 depending on the source. No matter how you slice it, it is a lot.

I would hope we never take all those people for granted, but I thought about it a lot as I finished writing my third book. There are many people who we bring in to our lives that leave us all to quickly, and many people who we keep in our lives that are equally important. I hope anyone who reads this realizes, that even though I do not track individuals, that I appreciate each and every person who I know, good or bad, positive or negative. Each of these people made my life more complete, and as our streams crossed we made each other better for the experience.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider well the moments you have in life, and the people who you meet. You never know who may be the most important person to you later in life. Treat everyone with respect and patience, and as you cross streams, don't muddy the water. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and be amazed each day...
