The sun sets on another day...

A spectacular sunset awaits, and all we have to do is enjoy it. Are you there? Are you there with me?

A little love can move the world. A little love is all we need, so almost every music artist says. We need love to make our days go forward, back, up, and down. Love is what we define in ourselves, and love, well, love makes the days easier, and the nights, and the in between.

I don't profess to know it all, nor do I try to say my way is the only way. Everything we do is a choice. All I can ask is we love with all we can each time lest we regret it later. Sometimes it is easy for despair to creep in, and on those days we need to hold close and remember that right now we can make a difference to ourselves, to others, and to anything that may happen as we progress. It is a hard lesson, but it is up to us how we perceive each day. We can decide to overcome and make today the best day ever, we can decide to set today aside waiting for tomorrow. When it comes to love, is there a better day, is there another day? If so, why? Consider it, and if you agree, love with all your heart all the time.

So as the sun sets on another day, I think about weird stuff, I know, but sometimes we just need to be reminded, the decision to proceed is yours. The ability to love is yours, and the outcome was always your choice. Make it the best one ever, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, enjoy the sunset, and love all you can...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was clear, bright, and full of promise. For me, it was a day where I could see some hope on the horizon, and for the rest of the world, perhaps a time of reflection.

I sit here now and for a moment I watched news men scramble as they tried to decide some hidden fate of the future. I was unimpressed. 

I was impressed today as I stood in line to vote at the number of truly positive people I talked to in line. Some were ready for one candidate to be gone, several said to me this was the first time they had voted in years and it was just to keep the new candidate from winning. My point is, in line there was none of the animosity we have seen in the media. No intimidation, craziness, or anything but good people exercising their right to vote.

This should mean something to us all. We don't have to hate. If we only have 29000 sunsets, how many are filled with hate? Why? If we only have 29000 sunsets, is that a good use of our time?

So as the sun sets on another day, today was a new day, and who knows what tomorrow will bring. I just hope it will bring people who are happy and enjoy each other a little more, and I hope we find out hunamity along the way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be a good person...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched sunset tonight from the beach. The waves crashed down upon the seawall and rocks, and the sky was lit by an amazing lightshow. The sun set, but the show was not over. As the twilight continued the sky was pummeled with color, and everything was amazing for a while. It was not the sunset today that stole the show, but afterwards was stunning.

Sometimes after something happens there is far more beauty than while it happens. I am often stunned by the sheer fact that we are always in flux, every one of us. I challenge you and everyone to look at each moment of each day as a possibility to being more, and finding a path to something even better. The world will be a better place if you, yes you, are looking for the positives and setting aside the fear, hate and disdain that seems to permeate the world. It is your choice. 

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, enjoy the sunset, enjoy life, and if you can, be happy with all around you. After all, if today was day 28999, tomorrow wouldn't be just another day. Let's make our todays the best days ever, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wow, just wow...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset tonight was missed. Why? It was snowing like crazy and all of a sudden the crimson sky blasted through the snow for just a few minutes. I was astounded, grabbing a camera, then it was gone.

It is the first of November. Every year there is a sort of goal/contest strange thing called NaNoWriMo that get a bunch of writers writing. The goal is 50,000 words in one month comprising a complete book or close to it. This year I am using the time to complete a book I should have finished some time ago. It is time to complete a lot of books I started, and this will be the first of a series of rapid fire eliminations. I will succeed.

We all have an opportunity to succeed at any goal we set. Take a moment, consider yours, set the goal and make it happen. I know you can do it if you try, and I am all in to help if you need it. 

So as the sun sets on another day, smile, live deeply, and lets set some realistic goals and make them happen. We can achieve anything we put our mind to if we try. Let's make it work, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with a fire all your own, and burn the candle at the rate you can...
