The sun sets on another day...

The days are getting longer, the temperature is getting warmer, and Leon is getting larger. (I will pause here while you think about the move Airplane and have a brief chuckle.)

Seasons come and seasons go, days come and days go, months come and well, you get the idea. The end result is we are always going on to the next thing. Always moving forward. Always seeing one more day, one more hour, and making it to the next.

Some people seem to forget about the next things coming. They are so focused on further out, that the next thing around the corner gets missed. I don't mean planning out for some far out future, but if things are not going perfect, move on to the next thing. Stop going crazy with the bad, and move to the good. It only makes sense. Time to move on, next!

So as the sun sets on another day, consider well the day. Consider all you do and all you can do, and find the way to make this day as special as you can, maybe even more so, if it doesn't work the way you want, time for a change, and the best way to change is to move on to the next, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make it good every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places. Sometimes inspiration is from a positive source. Sometimes inspiration is from a not so positive source Perhaps it is better to say the inspiration is from a source and it does not matter if that source is positive or negative. It matters that it is an inspiration.

I talk a lot about listening. At least I write here a lot about listening. I write hear a lot about talking to people. I write about staying positive, no matter what. I write about focusing on the today and not the future or the past. All of these things I believe and all of these things I try and have tried to live.

Perhaps we all try to live the best that we can. At least most of us do. I find that there are very few people who think they are living a bad life as most think that what they are doing, right or wrong, is what is right for them. After all who can know better what is right for them than them. Of course there are exceptions. There are those people that cannot necessarily know what's best for them because they are either too close to their issues or too far away. For those people they need to see past themselves. They need to get the help that they can and find people to help them forward. They also have to realize that at the end of the tunnel the choices are always theirs. again, it is not anyone's choice but theirs.

My father wrote a long time on his screensaver "if it is going to be it's up to me". This is always true when you think about yourself or those things around you. We all must find a way to do right by ourselves all the time as we help the things around us, and take the responsibility to do more, and be more.

At the same time I am reminded of the movie Crocodile Dundee in which one of the main characters is going to see a "head shrinker". Crocodile Dundee does not understand this and asks simply "don't they have mates?" His statement is friends should be able to help. Look to friends when you need them, they can open your eyes as positively as anyone else.

I realize this is a somewhat odd post for me but I felt that I needed to put it out here after working on a website today. There are always times we need help. There are other times that we may not need help. In the end it is up to us to decide the best choices for us while realizing that the choices for us are truly our choices and belong to no one else.

So as the sun sets on another day if your day is great make it greater. If your day is less than great try to raise it up. If you need help find the help you need. If you don't need help make sure you make your choices, make them the best that you can, and be there for those that need help. Remember in the end "no matter where you go there you are" no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and the world is what you make it...

The sun sets on another day...

The rain came and left. The sunset wit it, and the cracks in the clouds opened and light shone through if only for a moment, and there was a pause.

Sometimes there are moments in life where you just have to pause. There are times when you consider situations, words, and more, and just have to pause. Tonight I wrote a large post. A big pot, but I will leave it to tomorrow simply because I need the pause. When you need a pause, it is sometimes best to take it.

I remember my Grandmother telling me to count to 10. I wasn't always sure when, or why, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.I know many of you have heard similar. Take a moment, consider the why and the wherefore, count to 10, have your pause and move ever forward, just the way life should be.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider well the world and all around it. Consider why things happen, and why you are a part of them, and sometimes when you know you need it, pause, and consider all you are and all you will be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, be vigilant, and make the world your own...

The sun sets on another day...

I watched today as the sun began to set,and the colors were vibrant for a moment, then gone. As I stood I was aware of the silence, and all the sounds within.

I contemplated words for a while this evening. The simple words people often use can be the most powerful. Simple words in writing, spoken, or otherwise. (Not sure what otherwise there is but it is there just in case).

As a basis for communicating between people there is a receiver and a transmitter. It is the job of the transmitter to send words to people. It is the job of the receiver to translate those words into ideas from the transmitters words. This is where it gets tricky. If the transmitter isn't careful, words can be distorted, and if the receiver has different experience, they may translate another way, and the idea doesn't go through as planned. Umm, it goes without saying, language is important, and depth of experience, and a host of other things. In the end, there are a lot of places communication succeeds. There are also a lot of places where it fails. It is up to you to make it succeed as much as possible, just by using words.

Sounds easy?

Not really, no.

I can think of no more special honor to anyone than to understand words. I can think of no greater elation than communicating well with people, and can think of no greater detriment than words misunderstood, or worse, words used in anger. A simple word or concept can change a world, change a life. So what then? Give up? Be the antagonists in the sound of silence? Perhaps. Maybe darkness our old friend can give us a clue, or perhaps the sounds of the sunset this evening may be a key to the door. Perhaps sometimes there is more in the silence than heard. Perhaps sometimes the choices are easier than you think. I leave that to you as each of you must decide how you will communicate, and how that communication will be perceived.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your moments and communicate them well. Live, laugh and love all you can, and communicate it well. Tomorrow may be another day, but today you set the foundations for your future. Make sure it is a good one, no matter what.

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