The sun sets on another day...

I was saddened a little tonight as I saw an event and actually winced in sympathetic pain. Some people may be amused by it, some may wince with me, but I winced and did not enjoy the moment.

There are a lot of people in the world that understand a wince, and some people that truly do not. A wince is when you nearly or almost feel the pain of something happening before you. to you it is nearly real as you want a pained item happen, to you it is as real as if it is happening to you. Feeling it is empathetic and can be disconcerting. We often feel a lot when we see others in situations, emotional or otherwise.

Today's question is how do you feel when you see something emotional in front of you. Happy, sad, energized? Do you wince or feel nothing?

I would like to think that we would all feel something, but often we do not. I would like to think that we all have the connection to cry at something sad or happy, to feel deeply when someone is in pain, or to feel happy when we see happiness. There is a lot to it, and in the end we need to acknowledge beyond ourselves and feel more deeply. Failing to do so can sometimes alienate us, failing to do so can be sad.

So as the sun sets on another day, I winced because I felt, do you feel when you see something difficult? Do you smile when you see a tender kiss? Do you laugh inside when a child giggles? All these things can open a door for you. Let the door open and enjoy it, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

As I drove home tonight the snow pelted the windows and I enjoyed the star field simulation in front of me. It was as though I was driving in warp speed for a while, and the darkness made it so much more fun. As I drove I thought about how each flake hitting my windshield was an individually created masterpiece born of the cold and water vapor in the air, and as I considered that I saw the simple logic of it all. The small flakes of ice were as individual as we are.

It is amazing when you think about how many people there are on the planet. Each one a unique individual, and each one similar and different in their own way. Now, I am not a person who thinks everyone is wonderful or there are no problems in the world, but I do think that each person is unique.

I think sometimes we forget that everyone is not the same, and in the process we lose a little of ourselves as we assume too much that the people in front of us understand who we are, how we think and how we approach the world. It is hard to explain but if you think someone perfectly understands you, five minutes from now you may be surprised by them.

So imagine the snowflake with its myriad of facets and crystalline structures, then think of how we are hundreds of thousands of times more unique, from DNA to experiences, and in that we are also constantly changing. You know what? This makes you, yes you, something special to be cherished. This gives everyone some value in their life for their uniqueness. 

Next time you are with someone and not seeing their point of view, take a moment and consider who they are and how they may be unique. Just try for a moment to be patient and to understand.

So as the sun set son another day, consider well the unique things in your life, including all the people you know. There is so much diversity that is right ther ein front of us if we only open our eyes and look for it. Keep your eyes open, pay attention, and enjoy being you, for you are the only one that ever gets to be you. Be happy with who you are, and understand others are different every day, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

I wish.

I have written a lot of poetry and prose over the years. The poems helped let loose passion, the prose captured ideas and dreams. This lead to writing several books. Of those I have completed 3 and almost 4, and have over a dozen in a state of partial completion. The trick is to press forward when you can, and not just wish, but instead do.

I know a lot of people who have gone further, and done more. some of them are very good at what they do, some of them are less than perfect but they all did more than just wish, they made things happen.

So what is it you wish? If you took the wish away and made it more, how would you go about doing it? How can you make it more than a wish, how can you make it real?

Sometimes that is all it takes. A few simple actions to be more than words. sometimes we only need change our point of view and make a wish a means to an end. Sometimes we need to do more than wish, we need to make the world our own and do a little more. 

So as the sun sets on another day, the world is yours, or at least your world. How are you going to show the world all that is you. How are you going to be that person that takes a wish and makes it into more? I would like to think we can all write a book, build a business, change a life, or more and I think we can if we just start thinking about a world where wishes are more than just heartfelt dreams, and reality is what we make it. Find your words and make them real. Find your life, and make it more and smile a little along the way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star...

The sun sets on another day...

I have a lamp that floats on a bed of magnets. It is supposed to be an easy balance that you put it on a coaster and slowly lay it down on the magnetic field. I think at this point the light was not meant to fly. I did it once, then tried to move it, and of course it fell off the magnetic repulsion and I had to start over. Finally, after an immense number of times, it is on and turning around. All it took was a lot of balance.

We all have our own balancing act to deal with every day. There are things pulling us in different directions and eventually we just get stretched too far. It is not as if there is too little or too much, it is just so hard to balance. Well, sometimes it is too little or too much.

So how do you balance each day? What is the secret that makes you complete? Is there something larger that will offer you solace if you are out of balance? It is questions like these we should ask daily to determine just how much of an impact we have on the world. It is questions like these that may define us at times, how do you achieve balance?

I have to change from time to time, finding ways to adapt, and make sure I am staying calm and easy, and enjoying as much as I can along the way. sometimes the way is clean, sometimes it is a bit muddy and I have to clear it, but always it is a journey to making each day a positive success.

So as the sun sets on another day, what is your balancing act? how do you keep yourself centered and moving forward? How do you make sure that each day is a good day and that some days are even better? Find a path, find a way, and make it the best day ever, no matter what.

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