The sun sets on another day...

Err, the moon rises on another day, err, the sun sets and the moon is up there too? It is all amazing.

There are things in life that take your breath away.  The sunset has always been one of mine. Think about it, colors, almost unreal, focusing on not just the moments but defining the moments.

There is more. Today will not be some lofty post about how great you can be, instead, you define today. Think about it for a moment. What are those things that take your breath away? For me the list is long.

  • The sunset and all of its glory
  • People in general
  • Writing and feeling the movements of writing
  • My job and feeling as though I accomplished something new
  • A slow passionate moment
  • The feeling when someone feels as you do
  • Helping someone when they don't know it
  • Taking a perfect picture
  • Taking a deep breath
  • My puppy, and playing with her
  • Hitting a target over and over dead center

You know there are more. Tonight was one of my fun times. I got my car out of storage and as the accelerator went down I truly felt at peace and excited and breathless all at once. It is an amazing feeling. 

So as the sun sets on another day, I have thought of mine, now consider yours. Think of all the wonderful things that make you who you are and just for a moment, enjoy them. Then laugh the night away, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, smile when you can, and let the world take your breath away...

The sun sets on another day...

There it was before me, a sunset where yesterday there were clouds. It was a beautiful moment, a shimmering cloud of colors that rained upon us all, and in that moment as I took photo after photo, I pondered many previous days and enjoyed every one.

I have been told I think too much, and often I think it is true, but shouldn't we all question and consider just about everything? Shouldn't we all take a moment to consider that life is an amazing ride and that we are in it? Well, shouldn't we?

I like to think that each and every day we should learn from the now and apply the past to the now to be ready for the now in a few moments. I know I know, it can get complex as we add newer and newer layers of complexity upon it all, but the reality is those who do this have the ability to learn quickly and enjoy more simply because they learn always, not just when they think they are supposed to be learning. Isn't that the way to be? Should we all be thoughtful all the time, and happy, and excited, and a mass of emotions that coalesce into a single calm that is you? After all, isn't calm the ability to understand the possibilities before they happen and be prepare for them? 

Maybe, or maybe not, but for tonight it was for me.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider taking a moment to be thoughtful. Consider learning a lot about a little and a little about a lot to just be better as a person. Consider being more not just for others, but for yourself, and as you do so, in the midst of chaos find the calm. It really is there if you look.

Sleep sweet, love, and live...

The sun sets on another day...

there is a lot to be said for appreciating things when they look bad. The skies grey and the color washed out of everything. Brandon Lee said it best in "The Crow" when he noted, "It can't rain all the time".

Now you can say this is just common sense, or you can say that the word "Duh" came to mind, but in reality there are a lot of people who just don't realize that it can't rain all the time, well, in my opinion. There will always be that moment when the skies clear, and the world becomes a better place, and yes, the sun comes out and dries up all the rain. (Compliments of the Itsy Bits Spider).

There will always be people in life that see the glass as forever empty. those are the people who find ways to make their lives worse, or feel downtrodden in the face of fortune,  but as you watch the sunset tonight, take a moment and enjoy the other side. There are things to be thankful for, and things that will make your day the best day it can be, if you only let them.

Yep.

So as the sun sets on another day, somewhere above the clouds the skies will clear, and there the sunset is, pay attention, look for that, and skip the other stuff and it just won't matter anymore. Make every day the best day it can be, no matter what. 

Sleep sweet, smile bright, and fly above it...

The sun sets on another day...

The rain continues to fall, but the grey became dark as the sun set high in the clouds. There is much to be considered, and beauty everywhere if we look for it, but sometimes we have to press, and press hard to find it.

I look each day for the best in whatever I come upon, today was easy, there was rain, but a simple grace to the world. Each moment more than just a drop of rain, but a dream being laid upon the grass of life. Yes, It sounds good, and to me it is good but can we all just press through?

I am sitting on the outside hoping we can.

So as the sun sets on another day, which way did it go? It is up there somewhere, and sometimes you just have to know that something, someone, etc etc, is out there and watching over to really make the day take that better turn. Each day can be the best in the world as long as we let it, and each person has the ability to press on, no matter what.

sleep sweet, keep pushing and press on...
