The sun sets on another day...

I have a joke for you. It is only funny if you think about it.

Two atoms were walking down the street. One looked at the other and said, "I think I lost an electron."

The second said, "Are you sure?"

To which the second said, "I'm positive."

I know, I know, it is a silly joke, but if you think about it, if all it takes to be positive is to lose an electron, maybe we should lose an electron. Every day we have a choice to be negative or positive, and the best days are those where we end up a little more positive, like it or not. Strip off your electron and try it, you never know it may be the best day of your life.

So as the sun sets on another day, stupid jokes are sometimes worth it, and we can laugh, cry, whine, or pine over them, but they are still a lot of fun. Take a moment, hold a joke close and laugh a little, it will make you smile a bit, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh a little ...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was amazing and clear, and the night sky welcomed as it had a mystery of its own.

I remember a song I used to listen to a lot. The key portion is "I believe in my dreams, nothing can change my mind." I thought about this while I took pictures and watched the sun fall once again. There are moments every day that dreams are made of, and in those moments we often find that the world can be a better place if we only reach for our dreams.

As I was sitting thinking about my dreams, all that I wanted and all that I wanted to become. Some I have achieved, some not quite yet. I will consider it as the eve falls further and you should as well. What are your dreams? What would make your dreams complete? 

Remember, as long as we live there is hope, and as long as we have dreams there are places to go, and mountains to climb.

So as the sun sets on another day, embrace a few moments of sleep. find a way to your reams, and dream big so tomorrow you can live even bigger. Believe in your dreams and don't let anything change your mind, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched the sky be set on fire by a sun so happy to be out it sprayed color like a paint gun. I smiled at the colors and the reflections all over, and was at peace for a moment.

I was thinking today about sand castles and how some people live their lives like a sand castle. I know I know, how can you live your life like a sand castle? I started with a depressing thought, then deleted it. Why? Because it was depressing and as I considered it, the thought did not fit correctly.

I have considered where it was going, and was suddenly aware I was wrong. I was tired I guess. Maybe all of us are in sand castles as nothing is truly guaranteed. Wait wait, don't go jump off a cliff yet. Maybe we should build our sand castles and make them the most amazing masterpieces ever knowing that any moment they may be gone. That's it! We need to build each day into a magnificent day with the knowledge it may not be that great as we progress but ignoring that and pressing the envelope to make today, yes today, the best day ever. By George I think I've got it. Well, I am not sure who George is, but it fits. Make today beautiful, because there is no tomorrow. Build the perfect sand castle knowing it may fall, but you can enjoy it for now.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy this day as though there were no more. Enjoy it as you should every day, and build a sand castle every once in a while, it works and makes you appreciate the little things, like grains of sand. Enjoy this day and the beauty you create it it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and happy building...

The sun sets on another day...

I can tell you right now, there are days you can be thankful for. Actually, in my opinion, you can be thankful for every day. Not just for the ones that overwhelm you and put you in a series of fantastic moments that seem to be without end, but also in the little days that you take for granted and finally surprise you with their pure happiness.

Three days, three storms, or so I thought. The first day a smile came to my mind as the sliding door held back an aquarium of water, only to be pumped out as if they had not been there. (well, it was a lot of work, but satisfying) The second day I waited, poised for the onslaught, only to have it be less than expected, and perhaps gone before it was even a threat. Now, tonight, as storms rage to the north and south, I looked to the sky and saw a star. 

I know, I know, it is a coincidence, but it is little things like this that make me happy about life every day. Yes, I was ready to fight the storm. I was armed and outfitted to win. Perhaps in the end, the storm just wasn't ready for a fight. Yes, again, I know I know, in a few moments it could be here upon me pounding down upon not just me, but on us all, but for the moment there is a peace in the air, and birds and crickets are happy.  (Along with dozens of little toads bouncing around like jumping beans.) I can only take this moment and be thankful for a moments rest, and maybe a moment to write.

We all need to take a second and look past what may be coming and look to what is here now. We all need to look at the gifts we are given, and not sit and pine about what may be, or may never be. Right now is a gift, and right now I see a star in the center of two storms. Take a moment, look around, what do you have right this second that is meaningful, hold on. What do you have that weighs you down, let go.

I had a friend once that was so very upbeat about life, but so hard on themselves. If they could have only seen themselves though my eyes for a moment they would have known. Only a moment. That is all it takes. Life is so full of moments we should cherish. Don't miss them, be aware and hold onto them.

So as the sun sets on another day, tonight a star broke apart a storm, tomorrow the world may be renewed, but even if it doesn't happen as we want, take the star and the day and live the best moments you can right now, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love to the moon and back...
