The sun sets on another day...

...but today I can only think of the sunrise. (Yes, this picture is a sunrise!)

This morning as I drove to work it was dark, as it is nearly every day I drive to work. As I drove and rounded a bend the light slowly rose in the east, and as I continued to move forward, so too did the light. It lit the skies in reddish hues and clouds became projector screens as I continued my drive. As I drove into work the sky was amazing with fluffy red and white clouds all over the horizon and I took a moment and looked out upon it all, and smiled.

Sometimes as we feel darkness closes in on us we have to look for the light. Often it is difficult to see, this morning I was given a gift of an amazing sunrise as perhaps I have an amazing sunrise in life. It is not necessarily one that I made, but one that I was given. Perhaps you too need to consider that the darkness can be dispelled by the light, and as you drive through the darkness, remember there is a light waiting just around the corner, don't stop, strive for it, and it will happen.

Sleep sweet, enjoy life, and look at the same star as someone special...

You know sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Peter Paul Almond Joy's got nuts....

An odd start eh? There are some days you just have to answer everything with humor, today after politics and silliness I just had to laugh a little and say life sometimes throws you a curve ball, so make lemonade. I was sent a super picture today, and that made me smile too. So tonight if you are thinking about how life has thrown you a curve ball, take a second and laugh with me, then make lemonade!

Have an amazing night!

The sun sets on another day...

Today while visiting with a client I saw:

This is the beginning of a new day.
I can waste it or use it for good.
What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
Leaving in its place something I have traded for it.
I want it to be a gain, not a loss;
Good, not evil;
Success, not failure
In order that I shall not regret the price I paid for it today.
 
I was impressed, and will say no more. The author of this is anonymous, but not forgotten....
 
Sleep sweet and spend your day well...

The sun sets on another day...

Today's picture is not the picture I took, it is a picture that past. The picture I took tonight was amazing, filled with color, and as the sun set the clouds created an amazing grid made of shades of pink and grey. Me, being human and with flaws, took over 100 photos, with no memory card in tonight's camera. I was in such a hurry that I did not pay attention and had a setting wrong. I have learned.

This made me consider all of the things I have learned, and it revolves around trust. It is hard for me to trust sometimes even though I keep a positive outlook on life and try to share that outlook with everyone I meet. Tonight I learned an old lesson again as we all sometimes do. I will learn this lesson again someday and consider that some lessons are worth repeating. (like the word lesson)

So learn from this with me and keep trying, even though you may make a mistake again. Live life, live for life, love with all your heart, and believe in people, even though you may have been hurt before...it is worth it. (And check your camera's settings before you hit the button)
