29000Sunsets

The sun sets on another day and the waves crash over the edge of the structures of life.

The sun goes up and down each day, and the moon does so as well, but in reality we circle the sun, and the moon circles us,. causing wave after wave as the tides go up and down.

The idea that something so far away can have such an effect on us is challenging, and I wondered about it a lot. When talking to someone it seems we have many people in our lives that treat us the same way, their presence has made us different forever, and in the process we find that our lives are filled with waves even though they are far away. (Of course the close ones can whap you in the head and affect you as well, so it all fits) Sometimes the waves steer us towards happiness, sometimes towards rocks, but when we see the waves, we can help steer, and though we cannot control the waves, we can control the outcome.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider how people have created waves in your life, and ride those waves towards happiness and away from the rocks.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it! Really live it!

The sun sets on another day...

The last several weeks have been filled with defeat after defeat. Disappointment after disappointment. I will not be afraid, nor will I embrace defeat as an outcome, but an opportunity to rise above and find a way. There are always so many things to be thankful for even when things are less than perfect, you have less than the desired time, or are feeling the grip of disappointing others. Take heed and do the best you can, move forward and overcome, and in the end life will be as it should be.

This week I will find a way, and I suggest you do as well. Find where you should be, and move that direction, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember that to ride a bike, you must fall a few times, and the people that care, will not give up on you.

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

The sun sets on another day...

As the colors swirl and flow in another wonderful sunset children frolic below and glance at the colors in wonderment, only to once again become lost in their moments, amazed by near everything. 

Ever notice how children ignite the best in us (yes sometimes the worst, but lets set that aside). A child seeing a new flower open is amazed each time and bends at a dandelion to smell the flower. A tad will watch the waves crash into the beach with fear or wonderment and can be mesmerized by a sight, sound or smell we simply ignore. The wind that whispers to a child can become a game and a gateway into the imagination.

Hopefully we do not lose this wonder as we press towards 29000 and we see each moment as a journey into amazing new seconds in time. Our eyes should never forget the colors that startle and inspire us, nor our ears become deaf to the sounds of wonderment and so forth. Where do you stand?

So as the sun sets on another day don't lose your childlike sense of wonderment and instead, embrace it, love it, and live every day knowing it is an amazing gift.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh with the children, as often as you can...

The sun sets on another day...

As it sets there is a struggle between the light and darkness as the light tries to shine, but the clouds and darkness attempt to force the sun into hiding. This massive struggle continues until finally, tonight the sun shone through, in spite of the darkness, bathing us in its rosy hue.

So too it is similar in life. There are people who embrace the darkness and become hidden by it and unable to show their true light. Then there are those that struggle against it all, and achieve the light in spite of the pain, suffering, darkness, or adversity they are attempting to overcome.

It is this power to overcome that makes us not good, but great and shows the world the true measure of us all. Those people that reach out not because of the darkness that closes in on them, but in spite of it.

So as the sun sets on another day, look forward, and in spite of whatever is holding you down, step up, step out, and be more than anyone thinks you can be. Overcome it all, and make the world a better place by your example, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh at the darkness, for it will never know the light...
