The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was amazing as far as the eye could see, and of course farther. How could we expect any less than perfection from a sunset so powerful in the near twilight sky. How can we feel anything but awe to the striking colors that it sends out to us all.

I thought a lot today about the works selfless and selfish. they are used so often, but sometimes they do not mean what people think they mean. Seems pretty straight forward, right? Selfish is - "lacking consideration for others; concerned chiefly with one's own personal profit or pleasure." While selfless is - "concerned more with the needs and wishes of others than with one's own; unselfish." Opposites, right?

Maybe.

Maybe they are far closer bedfellows than we think. If what you want is to give to others, but giving to others are you selfish or selfless? By that same token, if you give to others to feel good about yourself, are you selfless, or selfish? I know, I know, does it matter? I think it does. 

there are a lot of people who think they are very selfless, but are actually selfish as they get their pleasure from pleasing. In as much as it is possible, this creates a situation where there is imbalance.

I am not sure if there is a solution to this, or even if there is a question, but somewhere in the depths of what is, there is at least a moment of self reflection.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, I struggle with this from time to time. Not because it is complex, but because I have known a lot of people, and, perhaps I am overthinking, but some of them were not what I thought, and maybe I am not as I think either. Maybe in the end, we just need to find as much happiness, and give as much happiness as we can, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

There it was, what I had not been looking for, but it was in front of me all the time. The brilliant sunset lit it like a star scream beacon in front of me, the buds of spring, and all the power of summer will soon be behind it.

There are so many things that have to change. We can't quite grasp all of them, but they are there, right in front of us. Waiting to be changed. 

People get caught up in how things are and can't see how they are going to be, how they can be, or how they should be, or wait until tomorrow to see that change and all it can be. Sometimes it is full of good intentions, sometimes, well, it is not. Sometimes we are looking at tomorrow so closely we don't see today, or we are lost in yesterday, and don't realize right now can be better.

Change.

There are some people that have everything as it is needed, and need no change, maybe, well, I would hope. Most of us need change, we know it, we feel it, we want it, but we don't quite make it to where we should. Let's stop for a moment, and make a new plan. Let's make a new beginning towards where we need to be, where we should be, where we want to be. There is a path, yes, it is there, a little to the left, that's it. Gt it, something new.

No, I am not saying it is time to buy a new Ferrari, or move to Singapore, but maybe it is time to change how you see the world just a little. Maybe it is time to make the world a little bit of a better place.

So as the sun sets on another day, there is a new beginning coming. It is there for you if you want it or need it. Reach out, grab it, make it yours, and enjoy the ride along the way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy it every day!

The sun sets on another day...

As rain begins to roll in the sunset is hidden, but only barely, the colors in the wind lighting up the clouds of the twilight.

I could write a long post, but instead, let's try this tonight if you want to take a listen: WGVU

So as the sun sets on another day, read a little, and have a good evening, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and Saturday will be a good day...

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was striking, and a few moments away from paradise. The weather was what it should be, and the cool breeze was inviting now instead of chilling. I stood on the side of the house, watching birds rush to the feeders, and was lost for a moment in the peace that overcame me.

You know, sometimes we get lost in time for a moment and it seems to bend around us. Maybe it is just me, but I have talked to many people who say similar. The instants are more instant, or they seem to last forever. Today was one of those moments where I thought I was there staring at the sky for a long time, and instead it was only a few minutes. It is strange how we perceive time, and stranger when you are in that moment between awake and asleep, and a few seconds can seem like hours, or vice versa. 

Maybe we need to capitalize on it sometimes. After all there are a lot of fun things that should last longer. Imagine all the possibilities, and all the excitement you could have, just if you made time last a little longer. After all, time is the constant we cannot seem to change.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, enjoy that moment, be a part of that moment and if it is a good moment, make it last if you can. Make every day the best day you can make it, and enjoy all the time you have, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and seeya next time...
