The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was brisk and exciting as though it were opening the gateway new possibilities. Isn't that what sunset does every day? Doesn't sunrise and sunset signify new beginnings and new endings?

I am fascinated by beginnings and endings. They are so different for different people. The beginning of a new job can be exciting and fantastic or it can be terrifying. Beginning of a new relationship can be exhilarating or it can bring added stress. Even starting a  trip can be wowsers or a downer.

Endings are the same. Leaving a job can be stressful or a relief. School can be something we look forward to or something we dread. It all depends on how we relate the present at how we can deal with our day today.

Relationships are even more complex. The ending of a relationship can be something that opens doors and possibilities. Beginning of a relationship can also be devastating and create pure chaos.

I guess we can all speak with some authority on this because we have gone through all of these. Who hasn't? We all seem to see the positives negatives and others and sometimes file them away not realizing that they have some importance to us all. It is all in how we handle it. Of course things like death or a new life are even more different and they have a tendency upbringing out the best worst and most emotional of us.

I have found over time that I have not handled things well in my past. Each thing I've gone through has helped me grow but it has also been a difficult passage. How could it now be? We face things, we learn and we extend our possibilities. All I am saying is how you see things today was not how you saw them yesterday, they have been changed by your actions and interactions, and the experience people have given you. One more time, you are growing because of the experience you are being given.

So as the sun sets on another day, good job! You grew, you extended your possibilities! Just keep growing and seeing the world the way it is and better each day, and learn from all your experience, good and bad. Begin each day with a clean slate, and end with a list of lessons that will make your life better, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and a little more...

The sun sets on another day...

After many days of clouds and darkness, snow and sleet and all the things the US Post office vows to fight, today became an amazing bright day full of splendor. The blue sky and fun times made for a few good pictures, mostly because the tactic for today was to find some pictures.

You know, if we make the statement "Today happens" we are 100% correct, because we experienced whatever happened today. If we make the statement that we achieved something today it is because we had something to achieve. How many times do we walk in the day waiting for the day to happen? How many times do we let the world choose for us and us not play a part.

I cannot speak for everyone any more than anyone can speak for me, but I suggest we all start the day with a "today tactic" meaning how are we going to get through the day. We can be negative and let the day take us over and bop us on the head, or we can choose to be positive and press the day in our direction. Sure, there are things to deal with every day, sure we will have some things we don't like, and some things that don't like us, but maybe if we have a tactic the day will turn out better.

My today tactic is to be positive through as much as I can, and then be positive some more. Sure, I feel negatively sometimes but I choose not to let it get to me and in doing so, well, I make things work a little better. Well, for me.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment, set your sights on something new and exciting, and find a way to make your tactic for today one that will last all day, then tomorrow and do all you can to live well, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh all you can

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was obscured by snow, and sunset came and went with just a change in the shade of the sky. 

Today has not been as fruitful as I need to be. Multiple conflicting items have kept me from writing as much as I need to to stay ahead. I am monitoring book 5 and it continues to be more and more positive in the editing and progress and book 6 is chugging along. I need more. So instead of spending a huge post here I will just say:

Live your passion, live your dream
Make sure others know what it means
To you to them and to all else
show all your dream then include yourself

An interesting thought at least.

So as the sun sets on another day, a writing we will go, and I am heading there now, to enjoy the moment, the minute, the second, and maybe a lot more. I hope you have a wonderful night, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love your passions, and show the world...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was, well, dark dismal and ready for snow. As I sit now the snow is pounding down around me, well, around the house. In a short time we will exceed lasts weeks Snowmageddon completely. In a short time? Eeek, it may already be here.

I may have overdone yesterday. I need to try not to do that as it kept me from writing on the books I am completing. Oops, my fault, but there are some things in life that I feel I need to say. Some things in life that I just want to say, and some that, well, maybe I need to shut up. It is imperative in life to begin knowing which is which and I will get right on that.

So as the sun sets on another day, in the meantime, I am saying the magic words, "Open Sesame" and asking you to open your mind, your eyes, and your heart, and to see the world as a possibly better place. At bare minimum, you will come up with some great stories. Enjoy your times and get some laughs in each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, stay warm, and enjoy the snow...
