The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was another spectacular eve. The colors popped at the end and made the evening all that much more enjoyable. As I drove past the rows of cars and people watching the aftermath of sunset I smiled and I considered how lucky people were to be in this world. 

You may know a few people may disagree with me, but that is ok. People are bowing now, lowering their heads, looking down, but at the sunset they were vibrant and alive, watching the colors, engaged and aware. Isn't this the best way to be? Isn't it better to be aware, alive, and active and not lowered and passive? The world is a great place if you open your eyes. Stop getting lost in the minutia and instead see the world for what it is, a constant adventure, filled with passion and possibilities. Filled with passion, filled with possibilities.

You know, sometimes you will make mistakes. Sometimes the world will hand you a bum deal, but in the end, we can find a way to overcome anything if we keep our chin up, our eyes forward, and keep doing the right thing.

So as the sun sets on another day, every day is amazing if you pay attention. Let's make it even better and walk forward seeing all that is, and finding the good in life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and believe in yourself every day...

The sun sets on another day... 

Sunset was striking, covered by clouds of mosquitoes. They enjoyed attacking and running as dragonflies zipped around grabbing them from their blood sucking missions.

As I was buzzed from side to side I thought about all the sharp words in the world. Words are like mosquitoes sometimes. They can pick and sting and buzz around you and if you let them they can sting you and fester and become big ole welts. No fun. I see people using words like that a lot. Other swing back and try to bash them and pretty much the world devolves into chaos. You know what? Repellent works good. Just walk away and let the words fall off. Just spray a little or use your mosquito bush, and it is all gone. Stop being in the middle of it all and let it go.

I know it is hard. Our world is full of buzzing words everywhere seemingly attacking from everywhere. We just need to set them aside, and let it go.

The hardest times in my life are when I have let words bite into me. I have heard about my friends stabbing me in the back with sharded barbs I would only expect from an enemy, I have felt the sting of words often, and I have diligently tried to take the high road. It is not easy, and I was not always good at it, but in the end I did what I could. In the end I bashed a few but walked away more than not. In the end people show who they truly are with their actions and their words, so I always worked for the best.

So as the sun sets on another day, be mindful of your words so they don't sting, be mindful of your reactions so they don't bite, and in the end, be mindful of who you are when you speak your words, be mindful because you are the source of your words and what they mean to others, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, be aware, and love all you can...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was again spectacular and covered with wonderful people watching the colors light up the evening sky. As I watched the sky fall I wondered how many watched with me on my timeline, and how many watched from around the world.

I stand here on a precipice as I have many times before, many choices lay before me. Below lay a future filled with uncertainty, after all it is the future. The future is usually nonsense, and we can't build a world based on anything but what we see before us right this moment. Many people get tired of the constant negativity. Personally I have hope. As I looked around to all the people I could feel nothing but hope. A group of people lay in front and beside me, holding on to beauty. Living for the positive, and trying to make every day a great day for them, while being a part of a larger whole around them.

Smile, the world is a great place, and there are those out her stepping up to find beauty and leave the negativity behind. Laugh, because with beauty there is no way to easily be negative, and reach out each day for more and more.

So as the sun sets on another day, find the strength to move ahead and be more. Find the ability to see more positives in the world even as it spits you negatives. Find the way to be happy as you make your decisions, even if they are tough, and mostly find a way to be you, every day, all the time, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and embrace the future...

The sun sets on another day...

The cars lined the streets, and people watched the sun fall with quit murmurs and silent laughter. It was a kind moment, and you could do little but enjoy the moments, and the back lit clouds spotting the skies.

Ever think about flying a kite? No, I am not telling you to go fly a kite, but think about it, it is peaceful, and you watch the sky pan out in front of you as you enjoy the wind and everything around you. It is peaceful, and exhilarating at the same time. I would like to think this type of activity can bring a little calm to our lives. I would like to think this type of activity could add a little peace.

Some people think that peace and slowing down for a moment is of trivial importance, I, on the other hand, think the trivial is all too important. Being there for people it a necessity, and making a difference can be as simple as and iced tea at the right time, a coffee at another, or a kind word when it is needed. I guess if you look at it, trivial isn't so trivial.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, fly a kite, dream a dream, rock in a hammock, laugh at a dumb joke, then sit back and see the trivial things in your life, and maybe they mean a little more than you though. Consider them, and send someone a flower, or a card, and make them smile, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and pursue the trivial...
