The sun sets on another day...

Today's post was brought to you automatically, by scheduling and pre-writing. It is still a today post, just not as today as the moment could be.

How many of us go through life like this post. So caught up in what was preset, that we don't see what should  be. More to the point, if something is the way it has always been, does that mean it is the way it should always be?

It is difficult sometimes to understand the depths of people, going from place to place decide that it is alright to be the same as always, but not realizing that it is not the right thing. Don't get me wrong, this is not always the case, but many times people don't see how critical their lives are the to grand scope of it all, and how much they need to break away from the mundane or uncomfortable, and instead really live life.

I have several friends that push the envelope every day, but I have some that would just as soon the world be painted with a pink ticket, that you stamp until you run out of space, then you renew and do the same things. This is not the same as being alive. 

I also have a friend that pushes ever day to do a little more, takes a picture, writes a song, but doesn't live just in the moment, but lives above the moment. Doesn't that sound better?

So as the sun sets on another amazing day, Isn't it better to live above the moment and make the day the best it can be? I would like to think so and hope you do as well. Find a way to be better, and laugh at the world so it can laugh with you.

Sleep sweet, love life, each and every day!

The sun sets on another day...

Welcome to the rain, but here in the rain our hearts can still be warm. Take a moment, after you read this, close your eyes, think of all the things you have to be thankful for, list them in your mind, and in the process, find a moments happiness!

Sometimes we forget all of the things we have to be thankful for each day. Sometimes we forget to remember at least. So after you read, close you eyes and consider.

Consider the warm sunsets...

Consider the silent moments that help you appreciate life...

Consider the not so quiet moments that are just as precious...

Consider friends and family...

Consider the last sunset you saw...

Consider your favorite moments...

Consider raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens..

Mostly consider those people in your life that truly love you, no matter what. Those people who are more than broken words, and as you consider, smile for a moment.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember even in the darkest night a heartfelt wish can light your path anytime. Remember that life is an amazing journey and you are part of it, and that every moment is a chance, a please, and piece of excitement that will make your day complete, and maybe a little more. Hold on to that, and enjoy the sunsets you see, and those you can't see, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, smile from your heart, and love every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Every think about the Yin-Yang symbol? The symbol represents how opposites may actually be part of the same system. It is a clear representation as well as how things flow and work together.

With that in mind, we have the amazing view today, and the less than amazing view yesterday as it was dark, stormy and basically yuck, or was it.

True it was rainy and ugly out, but it was soaking the soil, adding to the ecosystem and making the sky cleaner so today we could enjoy this wonderful sunset. In truth, most people don't realize just how necessary it is to have a gloomy day to make a really great sunny one. We just need to realize, they are both parts of the same dynamic.

So as the sun sets on another day, be thankful for days like today with their amazing clarity, but realize that without a few gloomy stormy days, we would not have clarity and instead would end up with dull days or a lack of appreciation of the great ones. Be thankful of every day, no matter what, simply because you are in it. After all, the rain is not always that bad, is it?

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the rain...

The sun sets on another day...

No, I did not just run off to read Dean Koontz older book, I don't need to, it is sitting on my shelf a few feet from me. I do hear whispers right now though, and perhaps for the same reason. Well, hopefully not the same reason, but a similar reason.

Tonight there was no sunset that I could see yet still I knew one was out there. The sky went from brilliant light dark to ebony dark dark in span of only a few minutes. Guess what, it was still a great sunset.

In my mind I saw a hundred other sunsets and watched each fall to the ocean, the lake, the mountains, the castles, and the ends of the earth. The darkness did not slow me down, nor make me feel as though the evening were bad, it was just another wonderful sunset. It was another sunset built in whispers of positive thoughts, gathered from positive thoughts over time.

I remember a commercial about perfume a long time ago, that nothing can capture a persons attention like a whisper, and as I say thinking about the sunset, I closed my eyes for a moment, and heard the wind, and the trees blowing, and it sounded like a thousand thousand whispers, all heralding the twilight as day passed to night, and we had a sunset.

I know I know, this is just another example of staying positive, even in a negative situation, but positive is a good thing. Yes i was dark, but it was a fun dark and in the process, we had a great sunset, and I enjoyed it!

So as the sun sets on another day, take a second. Listen to the whispers of all the good in your past, and if you get a moment, just enjoy it. Enjoy the whispers of a sunset, the whispers of a good time with a friend, the whispers of a long kiss, and the whispers of happiness. Enjoy the whispers of positive times always, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...
