The sun sets on another day...

I was thinking as the sun set how wonderful it would be to see the sunset. The clouds had rolled in, but I felt good about all that was happening, and as I watched the night sky close in, I was still thankful.

Thankful is a neat word. It is a feeling of, well, thanks, or maybe being grateful for for something. It is easy to be ungrateful, and easy to see the negatives, but we can be thankful for almost anything.

I am working on a variety of stories and books right now. It has me scattered because I have too many spinning plates, but I can smile a little because I know that I am thankful to be writing and enjoying what I write. Nope, won't let the other things get me down, instead, I am going to enjoy the positives.

For all those things that hurt me, I am going to see the good sides first, and well, the hurt was a good lesson, but the bigger lesson was to be thankful. Yes, even when I ripped my arm up pretty good riding on a shopping cart, I was thankful I did not break anything, and thankful that I had the fun in the first place. Think about thanks. Should be a bumper sticker.

So as the sun sets on another day, think about the wonderful things you can be thankful for, and let the rest just kinda not be as important. It will make your day a little better to look at the positives, and you may smile a little more. Do it, live it, laugh with it, and enjoy your day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and thanks...

The sun sets on another day...

It is just another day, right? Sunday becomes Monday, Monday becomes, what day was it again? Then there is the sunset. Without a doubt it divides the days and we have a reason to see them as different if we only look.

There is a lot going on right now. It could make you scream if you thought about it. Locked in our homes, well, almost. Many people have lost their jobs. Many people struggle. Those that still have jobs are often in the middle of potential danger. It is very possible this is the most difficult time that will be defined in our  generation, or many generations.

Still, there is a positive in every day. You get to read my post. Er, that's not it, but close. In each day there is beauty if you look for it. There is peace if you take it. there is positivity if you make it. There is hope if you grasp it, and you are there. Well, I will assume we both are, I am not a ghost writer, you are not a zombie. So what? Well this is what. We can choose to carry on each day, deal with it all and make the best out of it, or we can choose note to do so. It seems easy, but in reality it is a tough series of choices. You choose to look at the positive or negative each day. Only you are responsible for you.

Funny isn't it. No one to blame but yourself. No one to thank, but yourself as well. Sure, others affect us, but their effect is less than our effect on ourselves. We decide how to proceed. We decide how to be. Scary huh? Almost as much as if you were a zombie and me a ghost.

So as the sun sets on another day, not bad, not bad at all. In fact, today was a positive day, if you ask, itr will be because I said so, each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wooha...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun set, the rain fell, and I got a giggle as I listened to the sound of the rain falling down the eaves, and through the downspouts. 

I was reminded of the Disney song, "Drip Drip Drop" in the movie Bambi. Yes, I saw Bambi, a long long time ago. In the song the sound of the rain seems to wash away the fears and the worries and bring back the beauty to the world. 

As I sat tonight and listened it seemed to help. the unpredictable bounce of the rain and the near melodic sounds created as the drops bounced off the downspouts. Sure, it was not perfect, but it was close.

How often do we just need to be more simple. To set aside all the fiery problems of the world and listen to something simple, laugh with something less than perfect? Just let go? Take a moment, listen to the rain, stare at the stars, be a part of something less complex, and enjoy the moments of the day. In   the end it will be worth it.

So as the sun sets on another day, ahhhh. It was a good sunset, even though it wasn't there, the rain in Spain fell mainly on the plain, and the rain here, well, it made me smile. That in itself was worth it.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, and laugh the night away...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was spent playing games and having a good time. Well, virtually. If you put your mind to it it the possibilities are limitless. If you can take a step back you can realize that there are ways to sidestep into fun if you just look.

I won't spend much time today except to say the world is a fantastic place as long as you can make it that way. Stop looking for the bad, and find a way to enjoy the good. It is there, it is always there if you look.

So as the sun sets on another day, you can still have fun with people, you just have to get creative. Try Jackbox games, laugh a little, play a little, and make the world yours in this different time, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make it yours...
