The sun sets on another day...

I look out to the sky, to the leaves, to the trees, to the fields, and to the beaches, sand, water, and everything else. I cannot find what I am looking for. I know it was there, there is proof, but it is eluding me, and I am waiting and watching. I am hoping I can find it soon.

An interesting statement. I say everything and nothing at the same time. The question is, what is it?

People like to surmises what it is a lot. Take the new movie Bird Box, we have people guessing at the monsters all the time. It could be anything. There are implied assumptions on many levels, but people take those further, and suddenly, assumptions are real. People say it, it becomes real. People pass it on, it is real, but what is it?

In my statement above, it is a Snow Owl in the area that is eluding me. (No, the picture above is not an owl) It could be anything, but in this case it actually is the Snow Owl that seems to go to Tahiti every time I try to find it. It is often when we are not seeking something we find it more easily. It is often when we are looking the other way that something astounding happens.

So, yesterday I am driving on the highway, and as I am driving I am on my headset talking to my daughter. As I drive I am concerned because it is twilight, and I am watching out for deer. (No, not sparkly vampires) Yes I am talking and intensely watching in front of me when I look out the drivers side door and a deer is running next to the truck. It was there, and keeping up and is it moved toward me, I floored the truck and sped ahead and the deer turned in behind me and scared the car behind me, but missed us both. I was looking for it all the time, and all the time it was there. I just was not looking in the right place. I would like to think this is the key. There are  a lot of solutions and hidden treasures out there, and if you just open your eyes and look, you will see them, sometimes where you are not looking.

This applies a lot to a lot of different things, whether it be happiness, a great job, love, money or a dozen dozen other things. there are solutions there we just have to look in the right place. For me, the owl is out there, but I just have not looked in the right place yet. Are you looking in the right place for your owl?

So as the sun sets on another day, when you are looking for something it may be where you are not quite looking yet. I know where to find pictures of the owl, they are here. I will get my own soon enough because there are always opportunities if you look for them. What you are seeking is most likely there (unless it is magical powers, then it might be there but you might be out of luck) Keep looking, find those opportunities, and enjoy them no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find your dreams...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sunset tonight crimson shades flooded the sky. Pink's at blues and yellows mixed into a single light display that was both colorful and creative.

 It is always fun to look up at the sky and see light shining by us. There are so many possible ways we can be illuminated by the power of the Sun. Why is it then that we are not Illuminating everyone with our light? Each of us has within the power to lift up and shine our light on others. We choose how to approach each encounter and in doing so we either lift someone up, take someone down, or do nothing for them.

 For me this is a little disappointing. I have been told that I am far too friendly by many people but I would rather be remembered for lifting someone up and being friendly than be lost in trying to take someone down and being passive or unfriendly.

So how do you approach it? When you are feeling a little down do you attempt to drag others down or lift them on a pedestal and maybe ride higher with them? If you hear something negative do you repeat it or do you refute it? If a relationship has ended do you do your best to tear down the other person or do you try to lift them up so they can truly understand how you felt about them? 

It's my opinion that these are all good questions and of course there are hundreds more. We are faced with an opportunity just about every moment to lift someone up or tear them down. As we walk through life shouldn't we be the ones trying to lift someone up? I know a lot of very terrific people that also have negativity bound to their souls. These people sometimes tell the truth but more often embellish it for a better story in order to make themselves look better. This is not good for them or for the people they talked about. Instead eventually it only makes everyone look at situations and question themselves. Basically, it complicates the world. Don't complicate the world, let's try to simplify it.

 

So as the sun sets on another day, find a pathway to lift up others. Find a way to explain to others how important they are to you. Realize those people that you loved so deeply you still love deeply in some way. At some point  understand you must keep your glass half full and more each day. Take a moment and consider that people deserve to feel happy. Hold your tongue if what you want to say is not nice, and remember anything said may have a price. In the end be that person that rises above and shows what love, and life are all about, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

Every day is a perfect day except when you think it is not, then you realize it is still perfect, you just need to take a deep breath and change perspectives.

Deep breath.

Maybe that is always the secret. Well, not all of the secret but part of the secret, right?

If you are not having a perfect day take a deep breath and be the thinker that find a way to make it perfect. Be a fighter that presses the soltuion to reality, be a saint that knows and shows patience, and be a romantic that beleives that the day is perfect just the way it is right now.

Deep breath.

Find the way to make others happy right now.

Deep breath.

Find the way to make yourself happy right now.

Deep breath.

See the world as the wonder it is every day.

Deep breath.

Maybe take a second, not a hesitation, but a moment of clarity to make good and positive decisions. Just breath through it and make the world yours.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, it is a good day. Take a moment and make it better. Today is perfect in its own way, you just have to see past the good and the bad, how it affects you and more importantly, how it doesn't, and make today more than you thought it could be. Find the path, take a deep breath, and enjoy it no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and breath!

The sun sets on another day...

I finished a full post, nearly 400 words and realized it was just too much math. So now I sit thinking about the limits of today, and beyond.

We have a lot of opportunity in life to test our limits and determine where they are just for us. We test our limits each day as we wake up, walk, drive, shower, sleep, laugh, play and a dozen other things. So what are your limits? Where is that line you don't want to cross?

I have found my limits vary from day to day. Each day a possibility, and each moment a test of the limits I place only on myself.

I am going to suggest we stop placing limits on ourselves, and instead push the envelope each day, finding a new limit, and a new way to overcome that limit.

So as the sun sets on another day, what is your limit today? How do we make that limit more of a suggestion than a limit? What can you do to make it better? Find the way, find that magic, and make your day better than the day before, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live without limits...
