The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was spectacular and it was another day with a clear sky and bright sun shining across the horizon. Even in the bitter cold you could do nothing but appreciate the fantastic sunset as it filled the sky with color.

Many people look at an entire day as an outcome. I've talked about this numerous times and focused on how people can generalize that a single day is defined as a day. That is wrong. I usually don't like to say that, but I have to focus on this for just a moment. Defining a day as a unit of either good or bad is doing the day and the person a disservice. Let me explain.

If we look at a day full of normality with a few positives and a really negative note at the end that only hits a few minutes of the day can we truly say the day is a failure? More to the point if we actually looked at things from a statistical point of view, which I'm not suggesting, his most of our day defined as good or bad? Most people don't have a clue. Most people pick out either the positive or negative because it is their nature and at the end of the day step back and say I have had a good or bad day based on their nature.

I am going to suggest that we switch the nature of a day into a series of moments that come to a logical conclusion and as we do so we begin defining the day as a matter of temperature. If you remember your chemistry and physics temperature is an average and our days can be seen as an average as well. Believe it or not it's weighted on the positive side because you instantly get a large number of hours for sleep and that's usually neutral in less you're prone to wildly positive dreams or horrible nightmares. As you look at the day you may find ups and downs but if you really sit for a second and consider it a lot of a day can be neutral or a little bit to one side or another. So the more of the day that there is the less chance there is of something really negative making it a bad day.

Let's do one better. If we take each moment and try to define it as our best possible moment by the law of averages we will make our day great even if we face some bad times. Sure there are things that will drag you down and hold your day down but I think you would be surprised to see exactly how little they actually mean.

So as the sun sets on another day, maybe it's time to measure our days as a series of amazing moments and create an average that is really positive. Maybe, just maybe, we need to spend more time paying attention to those positives then the few negatives that drag us down into the weeds. It's my opinion if we do that we'll have better days , no matter what.

Sleep sweet, have a good moment, and have a great day...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset may be amazing for many days now. Tonight was filled with color, and the twilight sky was stunning.

Thoughts are easy, right. We can think so fast we engage ourselves far faster than we sometimes should. I know that may seem like an odd statement, but consider:

We are living in today and want the best possible day every day. As we do so it is easy to upset our equilibrium. That is, it is easy to lose a moment by assuming another moment. Then we may well lose the power and presence of today, and all the positives it may contain. 

I am sure that make little sense, so let me make it simple, our speed of thought is based on what we know. As such it is prone to error, and it is a good idea not to engage our responses until we know a little more.

Or, to make it more simple, better to be silent and thought a fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Easy huh?

Well, not really, but I am up for it. I guess just pay attention and don't let your quick mind be too quick every day.

So as the sun sets on another day, we are fantastic thinking creatures, but lets try to make the world a little better by taking it a little slower for a moment and not going over the top when someone says or does something. Maybe, just maybe, it will make the world a better place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with your heart, and be nice until it is time not to...

The sun sets on another day...

Here I sit watching the sun set but it waits for no one and hides itself behind yet another cloud. Laughing I am aware that I have the advantage because I know it is there no matter what.

I find myself often thinking about the depth of the human soul. Many people look at the soul or people in general from a very superficial perspective. They feel that what they see is all that there is and fail to realize the intensity that is behind the curtain. It is that intensity that often defines who we are and that driving force that often pushes us to be more and to achieve more.

I have found that the quiet people in the room are often the ones that are exploring the most amazing thoughts and with a few brief questions can unlock the universe. All you have to do is want to see more. All you have to do is find the patience to see past the surface.

When I am quiet, which is often quite rare, it is usually because I am lost in thought and thinking about literally dozens of things at once.  The quiet time allows me to focus and see past the surface and instead into considerably more. The bad part is sometimes when I am talkative there's even more going on.

How is it for you? Do you need the quiet time to reflect and understand and have a deeper moment? Or instead, are you inspired by the words of others and consider far more because of their interaction? Either way know yourself and find the time to see more.

So as the sunsets on another day, deeper thoughts make the world a better place. Deeper thoughts find a way where there may not have been. Use those thoughts to create a new world and enjoy your day no matter what.

Sleep sweet, think often, and act when you can...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset jumped out for a moment and then disappeared again behind thick clouds. Still the few moments of bright sunlight were exhilarating and each day is a gift.

I often wonder if life isn't just a series of dogs. Animals can make our life more complete or add different stresses and strains, but we didn't expect. In my case I have had a significant number of wonderful animals in my life and they have given me more insight into the good things in life and life itself. I can think of no better life then a life where unconditional love is prevalent. Pets may not be the answer, but they may be as well.

Do you have an animal in your life that makes the day better? Do you miss that animal in your life it may no longer be there? I find that often this is a good question.

So as the sun sets on another day take a moment and appreciate the little slices of time with a pet . And if you don't have a pet just enjoy the time where someone gives you and unconditional love and a bit of acceptance. Life is better because of it and you are better as well.

Sleep sweet, love always, and love a little more...
