The sun sets on another day...

Rushing to sunset was OK and as I pulled off the road to a stop I was rewarded with a beautiful view. 

We often forget how easy being happy is. Not always, but often. We see the world and all the negatives but forget it is our choice to let them drown us, or to embrace the easy path, just being happy. As kids we are told all the time about how it takes more muscles to frown than to smile, but the real tell is it takes more of a toll on us to be unhappy than to be happy. Consider all the things you do to yourself when you are unhappy, then consider a single laugh, a smile, or more and how it makes your day seem so much better.

Maybe we need to take a moment and double up. When something is less than perfect and you want to make it better, maybe it is time to do something drastic. Maybe ice cream, a chocolate treat, a walk on the beach, or something that really just makes your day better. It is there waiting, where are you?

So as the sun sets on another day, it was a good day. There is so much to consider all the time. The days are good, better and more, and if you take a moment, realize that each day is a gift, and each moment a way towards happiness. Enjoy it, laugh with it, smile with it, and make today a happy one, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy your day...

The sun sets on another day...

I thought the sunset was lost as the storms rolled in, but at the last minute the skies were lit up with a fire all their own.

For several days and actually for a lot of years I have been thinking about peace. A long time ago someone special wrote to me about peace, and tough I understood, I never really embraced peace. For the most part I am usually very direct, and peace is foreign to me often. The last few years I have been trying to be more at peace, and it had its ups and its downs. So I thought for a while, and remembered Ralph Bakashi. Now, a lot of you won't remember Ralph, he made a lot of fun movies, but they all had heart. Many remember his lord of the rings movie, but only a few seem to remember an animated movie called Wizards. Now, again, if you saw it most likely it was a long time ago, I last saw it about 20 years ago, but a central character was a bad guy turned good, a robot named Peace. (Good lord, where is he going with this? Get to the point)

So, the point is, the robot Peace changed from a weapon of war, to a creature of peace. (Yes, Peace wanted peace) and that is the whole point. Sometimes even the craziest things need to move towards a little peace. Ahhh, feel the breeze, feel the excitement, but mostly, feel the peace. If you get a chance, the movie is relevant again in our society and a lot of fun. 

well, it sounds super.

So as the sun sets on another day, peace is super. Peace is a feeling that can only be described as sublime, perhaps peaceful if you can use a derivative to describe a word. Peace is what we need more of, and peace is what we should seek. Set aside the toxic and toxic stuff, and find a way to peace each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find peace...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset came and laid color across the horizon, painting the world with golden hues. I watched in awe as the fiery globe passed from our day to somewhere beyond with the promise of coming again tomorrow from the east. The clouds hung in the sky only to be painted with the hues passing, then gone and fading into the night sky as silent wisps of white.

My first book is called Vengeful Son. The name has many meanings in the book which the reader finds out as the progress through the chapters. In the end, the name is about vengeance and how it really doesn't give the answers or the solution that many seek. Vengeance is one of those wants that is never truly a need, and a want most people should avoid. In my book, the anti-hero, Michael shows others that vengeance is not a good path to take. So why do we?

I have to admit, I have felt that spirit latch on to me all to may times. People who treat you poorly even out of blind ignorance can quickly become a a target for some type of retribution, but it was said best in the movie "Hannie Caulder" staring Raquel Welch, "win or lose, you lose". So it is, Win or lose, there is not positive outcome from vengeance, well, not usually. 

As people wrong other people, they often run into issues of their own. Pushing for your own form of retribution just doesn't work well. In fact, it doesn't work at all. I suggest we just skip it and try to enjoy the life we have.

How about you? Have you ever created a good situation from a bad one? Has vengeance or causing someone pain worked out in your favor? How about we all try to be as nice as possible and just move forward. It does work.

So as the sun sets on another day, Vengeance is mine, or so the quote says. Perhaps that is because so few people understand the repercussions of vengeance. Maybe we should look out at the sun and enjoy our evening. Maybe just maybe, the day is so super today we can just make today the best day ever, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep moving forward...

The sun sets on another day...

This will be a short post.

Today the sunset was grand, but the better moment was as I sat watching the waves and lake with a cool breeze flowing through my hair. In that moment I was at peace and I held on to that peace, then smiled and laughed a little.

Perhaps we all need to find our center from time to time, enjoy a moment of peace, then move on. It really does make a difference.

So as the sun sets on another day, and on this short post, take your moments as they come, laugh a little, smile a little but enjoy them all you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, feel the breeze, and enjoy the peace you can...
