The sun sets on another day...

The sun is relentless on its journey, or we are relentless more like as we travel around the sun. The sun seems to travel around the sky as we patiently and pointedly watch the rise and sun in such wonderment. there is no pause, no stop, no short break, just the progression from the brilliant light of day to the edge of night, to darkness once more.

We get a little more luxury in life. sometimes we can pause if only for a moment and take stock of the world, perhaps to see a little more, and perhaps to see a lot more, but in the end, we can pause, and reflect.

Reflection is a good thing. Considering how you are in the world and how you affect the world gives you the ability to consider more options, and to determine how you wish to approach life. Sometimes a moment is all we need, and sometimes we need a bit more. In the end, a moment of reflection can allow us the ability to see beyond ourselves and into a picture we truly needed to see.

Huh, a picture we need to see, perhaps a sunset, or perhaps just a moment we can reflect on as the world plays around us again.

So as the sun sets on another day, I know this post may seem confusing, but I ask simply that you pause, and reflect for a moment, not on this entry, but on you, your life, and how you can be better each day. I ask that you pause, and in pausing become more and when tomorrow comes embrace it with the massive enthusiasm it deserves, and make it your day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, enjoy the moment, and when you see what you want, I hope it is yours...

The sun sets on another day...

You know, there are times in our life that we just wish could last forever. A time doing that special thing that makes life better. A time considering the depth of the world. A time playing with a child. A time with a special person. All of those times and so many more are both exciting and memorable because they are part of the core of who we are, and they help is find out center.

It is a unique thought. Our center. Can you take a moment and consider what it at your center? what is it that makes yo time more and more special, and that keeps you seeing the best in the world. Is your center something easy, like feeling good about something, or is it more difficult, like helping someone in need, or finding a key to make the world better. Is your center an inner child, or perhaps an inner monster. There are so many things inside of us as we look through the layers of our soul it is sometimes hard to see what is what.

It is also hard to change your center, for it is at the root of all you are, if you are a good person, that center may be good, if not, well, that center could be more difficult. In the end it is up to us to both nurture and define our center, and keep ourselves not because of our world, but in spite of it. I know that sounds difficult, but we must keep our center in spite of the world around us.

So as the sun sets on another day, you are awesome, you are wonderful and you can have a wonderful time all fo the time if you simply embrace your center,a nd make the world yours. Each moment can be an adventure, and you, well, you are the key to your future, and I hope you are always seeking the best one possible, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

There are words for days like today. Comic relief is a good name for it, but also eye opening, and enlightening. It is funny how days like that can make you feel good, bad, indifferent, empowered and drained all at the same time. It is even funnier when you can't decide which is which because they are all coming at once.

Today I was assisted by a kind gentleman in loading a tractor. In the process we worked hard to get it started, and found it finally would turn over, but would just not catch. At last, and only after a few brief turns we found that the gas tank was clean. In fact, the gas tank was so clean that it looked like it had never had gas in it, so we laughed, got gas and eventually got the tractor loaded and taken to a new home. As I sat considering the day I thought about how sometimes you just have to take the day, and drain the life right out of it. Sometimes you have to accept no less than success, and in the process, push the envelope a little further that you normally would. Sometimes the gas tanks will be empty, and when you discover them, you fill them, plain and simple and then move on.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember that when you seem to be out of gas, there is something out there to put gas back in you. Use it, accept no less than a good day and in  the process try to make life better and better each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh at a bad joke, (because I tell them)...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set today, the clouds once again took it from us, a brief moment of light shone for a snowy cold day.

Brief moments of light are something we should all be looking for in life: A brief moment of realization; a brief moment of clarity, a brief moment of love; a brief moment of insight. All of those brief moments create a situation where we can step out and beyond ourselves  into something a little better, perhaps even into a moment where life is more than just a series of mundane tasks, but instead something a little better.

I spend a lot of time in brief moments, and no, that does not mean I walk around in my underwear, instead it means I have to look for the best moments and drag the rest of the day forward. Contrary to anything you may believe, I do not walk around each day in perpetual happiness, but instead have to find a way to it sometimes by being more diligent, or at least diligent.

I truly believe Lincoln when he said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make their minds up to be" and I want to make my mind be as positive as possible. No, that does not mean I am not aware of the bad things, the impending dooms we all know, the things that may be upon us any day. Instead it means I will set those things aside until "I" need to act upon them. After all, I cannot change a petty dictator with delusions of godhood, so I am aware but don't worry. If they are at my dinner table, it may be different.

Each day we can all set some boundaries, and instead of taking on the woes, work towards a close and in the process, find a way to enjoy our moments more effectively.

So as the sun sets on another day, maybe we could be better with our brief moments (Not Hanes) and enjoy them while dragging the rest of our moments along into the light. A brief moment of light may well be enough to make us all a little happier, and in the process, well, maybe we can shed a little light on a  few other people. In the end, it is up to you who you want to be each moment of each day, and up to you to make a difference in your life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wear underwear, err, and enjoy the moments...
