The sun sets on another day...

Tonight the sunset came in quickly and left a sprinkle of color over us all, it is in those moments that we feel the splendor life can bring.

As I was driving today I thought a great deal about the difference between driving and driver. There are different ways of interpreting both words, so you should consider them carefully. 

A person who is driven can achieve almost anything, their drive makes them an individual made to accomplish. A driven individual can make the world a different place and have an immense effect on their own life.

A driver, on the other hand, can be a force to move many people. They can be the catalyst that creates change, and a driver can be a force of nature as they drive others beyond what they are driven to, in a single direction.

Sure, there are lots of ways to interpret this. A lot of ways to show how driven people succeed but I think we need to take it further and sometimes be the driver. That person who goes the extra distance for us all to create something greater is a driver. It is my opinion we need more drivers of driven people to make the world a better place. It is my opinion, drivers should drive us all to a better place. (No, this is not an ad for uber)

So as the sun sets on another day, be driven to make a better life for yourself. Be driven to make each day a happy day, but be a driver that creates a world where others can find their way with you, and drive forward to a great world together, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and drive on...

The sun sets on another day...

Rain, dreary, cold and clammy are words that could be used for many to describe today. I like to think of it as a day filled with possibilities and achievements.

You know, each day we face a variety of challenges, and a variety of things that try to knock us down a notch or two, but in reality, our journey is what we make of it. The road before us is fraught with potential issues, but we have the ability to make today the best day there is, and face tomorrow as it comes.

So as I looked at today I can consider all the things that happened that were potential negatives or I can realize I fixed a problem with the fireplace that had been bothering me, played with the puppy, enjoyed taking pictures with a friend, and had an otherwise great day. I could look at the day or a hundred other things that are not as happy as they could be, or drive my day right over the bad parts and enjoy it anyway.

Tomorrow could be difficult, or it could be amazing, but that doesn't really matter because today was great, and I will build tomorrow on the same foundation.

When you are looking at your day, do you dwell on how bad you think it is, or do you reach out and feel all the possibilities that you have been give, and instead grasp them and live them? Think about it, and next time, go for the good side of it all.

So as the sun sets on another day, the day could be bad, yucky, icky, but we have a choice, and I am going to choose the walk the path that I can make, and always enjoy it anyway, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep moving forward...

The sun sets on another day...

I was looking at a tree and  thinking this morning about a joke. Well, it is a kinda a joke, and at the same time it is a bit of a challenge, and a bit of a way of life, so a little inspirational, well, it is a lot of everything. I saw it first on a meme, but tracked it down to a writer, Hunter S Thompson. the quote reads:

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

So I took a picture of the tree, and was wondering about its history and all that it had been though. All the things the tree had seen, well, if trees could see. All the things that the tree had experienced, and all the years that had gone by. The tree was ragged and worn, beaten unmercifully, and had slid down into the grave, wow, what a ride.

In the end, life is a wondrous journey that deserves to be lived and lived well. Well does not mean hiding in a corner, it means living to the best of ones ability.

So as the sun sets on another day, next time you look at a tree, laugh that I would think all this from a tree, then smile knowing there is a lot more life to live, and go out there and make it happen!

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy every moment...

The sun sets on another day...

A brief moment and the sun came out then left, but the deer still wanted to play, lost in the sparks of their fun.

There is a point when everything starts. It is not well defined, nor is it undefined. For lack of a better word or phrase, it just is. It is in that moment of something starting that we can find a spark. 

The spark may be an idea, a passion, a piece of excitement that sat on a shelf, or a little more. A spark can start a company, an initiative, a movement, or a love. A spark is what makes us more in my opinion, and a spark is what takes us to new heights.

So what?

I'll tell you so what! You have that spark! It is not a guess, or an idle statement, you have it available to you, you just have to kindle it when it comes. Don't put it out, feel it, live it, laugh with it, love it, and make it bigger, it truly is worth it every day to make your spark a raging fire. Find it, fuel it, and be more today than yesterday, and tomorrow, well, be ready for even more.

I know, it may not be a popular thought, but a spark can open a whole new world for someone, and in that world a you, yes you, can achieve more.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the spark, enjoy who you are, enjoy the day, and yes, enjoy everything you come across. With passion and excitement and a small spark, you can move the world. Take the chance, and find an exciting life, no matter what.

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