29000Sunsets

The sun sets on another day...

I was tempted to write a lot of things today. The sunset was there, but not as easy to see as I had hoped. I spent time driving, and laughing, and having fun, but missed out on Cheesecake Factory. (Never miss out on that if you can)

I think it is funny when I say I like Cheesecake Factory and people say "I don't like cheesecake". It is funny because I go there for the menu and food more than the cheesecake, but so many people think it is a desert store. As they go once and find the menu reads like a bible made for the foodie in all of us they realize why I like it, and later sometimes mention it to me. Their perspective was jaded, but they based a decision on it.

How often do we set our decisions in play and not have a complete picture. How often in the quest to make our mark do we miss the mark and miss a grand positive opportunity? How often does the world see a hole where we could have used our shovel?

I know I know, we all know it all. We are all the subject of our own massive series of experiences, but we are not so experienced that we really know it all. Personally I have to correct myself at least daily, and as I do, well, I sometimes wonder where I got my own information. Sometimes I may be more right, but sometimes not, it just depends on the day.

So as the sun sets on another day, make your mark a good one, and instead of being sure, listen, and instead of every being angry, listen a little more. There is a path daily to find truth every day if we only look, and let's skip the perspectives that are less than positive and instead show the world how good we can be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and if life stops you, pitch a tent for a few, then move around when you know how...

The sun sets on another day...

I was a little surprised when I considered how fast January came and left. Sunsets came and went, and life went on. It has now been a long time since I have been writing on 29000sunsets. I reset it four and a half years ago, and continue to write here, trying to make sense out of the senseless, rattle, roll, or leave some type of guidance, and along the way have picked up a lot of readers, and had a lot of fun.

As January winds down, take just a moment and test your place. I do mine quite a bit. My questions:

  • Are you where you want to be?
  • Are you where you need to be?
  • Are you happy?
  • Are you making a difference?

My most dramatic changes in my life have been around question 3, but the others mean as much. We all have our own questions. Consider yours, ask, and come back to them often.

So as the sun sets on another day and as the sun sets on another month, be happy where you are, enjoy the sunset, and laugh all you can in the face of everything, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it daily...

Imagine with me for a moment. There you are, having fun and wanting the Carrot Cake on the menu so bad you can taste it. Yummy. Then the server returns to say "Sorry, she got the last piece". You are looking at the world through Carrotcakeless eyes. Everything is about to go dark. The Carrot Cake two tables over may be the cause for world war 3, right? After all you are armed with a knife and a fork. Wars have started with less. The tension is out of control, the Carrot Cake is screaming your name! "Eat me!" it calls and then, Ice Cream shows up to the table with 3 cherries and some chocolate sauce, and though its not Carrot Cake, it is yummy.

Most people have been here. Wanting something so bad that it hurts, and then getting something else. sometimes it is not that bad to get a little less. Sometimes we just have to play the hand we have been dealt. When we do, we can sit down and have our yummy repast and enjoy it! We need to let go, and maybe, just maybe the Carrot Cake will show up sometime.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and be happy for the 3 cherries and chocolate sauce, and enjoy your evening, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and yum yum...

The sun sets on another day...

Yesterday was not in my top 10 days, but it was not just another day. With every bad day a little good may come.

I sat yesterday experiencing a lot of different things. There was pain and more pain, and miasma, and a lot of moaning and groaning. In the end it all went away. In the middle of it all I was laughing, thinking how absurd it was to feel bad and let it beat me down, while realizing that there are some things you just have to ride through.

Yep. Every day will not be sunshine and roses, in spite of how I try to make it sound. Every day will not be that day that you want to put in a scrapbook, but it is still another day.

I have hundreds of thousands of pictures (yes, it is true)and there are not many of bad ugly things. Why would you keep a picture that is horrible, except if it is me in 8th grade in my Budweiser t-shirt. (true story) So why then do so many choose to hold on to those memories that are bad and not save the thousands upon thousands of good ones. Why do the bad ones always get placed out front. "How are you today?" "I am alive and it is a great thing" instead of "How are you today" "Well, my gall bladder is hurting ya know".

You might laugh, but you know it is true too!

So as the sun sets on another day, how about we start building good memories, and remember why the chicken cross the road, to have a super duper time! (Or to run from the Colonel)

Sleep sweet, love life, and what happened good to you today?
