The sun sets on another day...

This week was the super moon. The moon was so bright and so pretty as it moved across the sky lighting the night so brightly it was almost like a dim day. Then I watched a special on it and it really was not that much bigger, it just was a little itty bit bigger, but boy it seemed to make a difference. It really cam upon us all like a spherical dream.

In life we have to realize that the smallest things may look massive to the world. The moment you pay for someones dinner and don't let them know, the time you make a child laugh in a grocery line, or the happiness you may inflict on a few people may become infectious and cause a major change in others around you. Sounds tough, right? Not really, this is a part of an equation just to make things better and not be a part of a problem. 

So as the sun sets on another day, remember that the smallest things can and do make a difference, change the world each and every day, and find a way to make the world a better place, no matter what.

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

The sun sets on another day...

You know what, the sun is hot. You really shouldn't look into it, lay under it for extended periods, or stick your hand under a magnifying glass from it. You might get burned! (Ouch). We all seem to accept this as common sense, but sometimes we don't see the other side of common sense when items are close to us, or in matters of the heart.

As we interact with people there will come a time when they will not do the right thing, sometimes it will be innocent, sometimes it will be less than innocent. It is up to us to determine the impact to our lives and decide a good course of action. Normally i would say that is to forgive, sweep it past, and move forward. In that case the idea of forgive and forget is a good one since it sets us up to win and does not put others in a negative place. Sometimes though, something is done that really tasks a person. A good example is when a person betrays your trust or misrepresents you to others. In doing so it often creates a difficult atmosphere from which to react, and sometimes can be emotionally painful. There is a quote I read once that states to forgive and to forget mus be independent. What this means is you can forgive someone, but sometimes the forgetting should not be on the table. I think that is funny as sometimes the person who did something terrible, cannot even remember what they did, but it is often not on the front of that persons mind, which make sit pretty much worse.

The point is, forgiveness is a process, but looking over a past act is a different process and requires a lot of work to achieve success. Don't take that for granted. 

So as the sun sets on another day, find a way to forgive and if possible find a way to forget. If not, be sure you can be happy with yourself as the sun continues to set, and make sure that you take the positive road, no matter what...

Sleep sweet and smile as the day crosses into night....

The sun sets on another day...

The sun and the moon do an eternal dance around the earth, the planets of the solar system joining in around the sun like children circling a parent. They are locking in an eternal dance that will not be broken easily to the end of time.

As I sat looking across a serene lack today I considered the interactions between parents and children. The moment to moment interactions that mold a child into an adult are the core of what parents do each and every day. Sometimes they mold children into wonderful adults, sometimes not, sometimes they are less a part of the equation than then should be, and sometimes they are more. It just depends on the parent. The point is, as parents we must keep our calm and cool, where possible, and guide children to be adults, and in the process build a relationship that is positive and powerful. Holding a child's hand is its own reward,.

It is my hope we all find a way to guide everyone in a positive way, and teach them to be tolerant, even when there is intolerance. Positive in the face of negativity, and powerful in the shadow of weakness. There are so many responsibilities but I have faith in us all. Sometimes we may slip, but we can rise above and find a way.

So as the sun sets on another day, be a positive role model for people, and in the process perhaps we will all find a way to be happy and a better society together, no matter what.

Sleep sweet and love to the moon and back and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

If you look at how the sun works and the complex bonds that are broken down in a fusion reaction to make heat, light and a bunch of other stuff it is pure science, black and white. There are other bonds in life that are not so clearly defined.

I love the idea of love. A lot of people have told me that. Love is a bond with indescribable power as it exists but it is evident in so many ways that sometimes it is less than perfectly clear. The bond between parents and children, loved ones, friends and lovers is a complex mess that seems to ebb and flow more than a storm surge in a hurricane. It is true, however, that these bonds are permanent and forever. Sometimes we just need to open our eyes and see them as they really exist.

I know a lot of people who have been in love, and seen that love fade away or be spurious, I also know a lot of people who have loved so strong that no one can break the bond between them, even themselves. Mostly, I know the bond between parent and children is super resolute, and cannot truly be broken. My point is, we should build the best bonds we can and make the best of every friendship, every love, every bond and make them stronger each day. Seems easy, right?

So as the sun sets on another day, spend a moment and call family, friends, and those you love, and let them know you care, keep building that bond so everyone knows that it is strong, and be there for family when they need you, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and smile a lot, it is a lot of fun!
