The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was lost but as I looked through my pictures I was lost in the recent memories of the Puerto Rican rain forest.

It may be hard to tell here but the main paths of water are always in motion. As the water falls the thicker areas slide across the rocks, and do not take a defined path, they go where they need to go, and as they do so it changes often.

As I remembered and looked at this picture I thought about how life is the same. Some people wander along the same path, some do not, some are outside, some are with a few, and some off alone. In the end, there is nothing set about the patterns, just random motion, and seemingly random decisions. Perhaps the small trickles are the fastest path, perhaps the group is, but they all progress forward towards and eventual goal.

Are you a leader? Are you someone who directs others to a path? Are you a follower? Are you that person who goes with the flow and moves where others do, not considering anywhere new, just someplace safe.

A lot of people don't see the possibilities of being that lone strand going another way. Perhaps it is again, "the road less traveled", but to me, it makes all the difference.

So as the sun sets on another day, maybe I should shut up and enjoy the waterfall. Sometimes we are part of the group, others we are part of less, but always work towards a good place, find your way and make you life the best it can be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it!

I like flowers. If you haven't read it you should look at this post I did some time ago. It gives a reason and a little more. 

I enjoy the moments I can, and I enjoy taking a moment to stop and smell the roses. I know it sounds cliche, but maybe sometimes we should stop and just enjoy a moment with no other thought than today is a good day to do so. I think if you take the moment and do so you will be surprised and amazed at how you feel.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't always rush. Take a second, stop and smell the flowers, see the giant ball of string, and enjoy the moment. No matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and relax...

The sun sets on another day...

A beautiful day rides before us. We know it is there, and sometimes we get lost in trying to find our way there. Many tend to follow before they lead, they wait for the next person instead of leading the way themselves.

Personally, I am always impressed with those people that lead us forward. I know many who don't wait for the world to show them the way but instead forge a path forward to their destiny and let others follow. They see a way where others see adversity. They see a path where others see little or even nothing.

I have friends that have found their way forward where others dare to fly. They took the chance to leave the normal world behind and make a new world and in doing so set a bar that is higher for the next person. Others may think they have it made, but they struggle like the rest of us, and push to find a way even where there isn't one. They have taken a normal business and turned it into a positive powerhouse that cares for service and people.

I have worked for many businesses that are top of the line. They are filled with positive people and high performers that want the business to grow. Those businesses ultimately set a bar that few dare to follow.

I have worked for those businesses filed with negativity as well. the ones that allow the basest of emotions to rule, and punish positivity and imagination in favor of obedience and subjugation.

In the end, both work for a time, but positivity wins out. The "my pleasure" of the world will find a way while others are still thanking you for shopping. those that listen and understand will perform better than those who dictate and destroy.

So as the sun sets on another day, I apologize for the light rant, but I am so happy to be around positive people and people who want to grow, and it makes me feel good knowing there are businesses like that out there. Skip the negative, embrace the positive, and make the world a better place simply because of attitude, no matter what.

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

There is a time and place for everything, right? The sunset tonight was dark, and dismal, but to the east there were pink clouds and powerful colors. Pretty much the reverse of normal, right?

Sometimes you have to consider the side of just one more of something. Just one more may be more than you need, just one less maybe be more of what you need, or just one may be all you need.

So what, right?

Yes, I say so what quite a few times, mainly because the question makes sense. You have to consider the worst to understand the best, and know the best to understand the better. I think that makes sense. There is so much in life that people miss because they don't take the chance to feel, good or bad. They just make the moments safe.

Hmm, safe. Not something we should be doing eh?

Well, in my opinion it is not.

I will take the just one more day, the just one more moment, the just a little bit more and press as hard as I can. Just one should be a goal each and every day, and in the end, just one should be a motto, except when it limits us at all.

So as the sun set son another day, just one more post, each and every day, just one more. I like ti, and I will keep going, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh it up!
