The sun sets on another day...

Since October 11th when i finished the reset of this site of last year I have not missed a day putting up a sunset, or writing here. I have had days where I have had really great comments, and days that I have had none. During each day between 20 and 200 people visit 29000sunsets. Why the wide range? I am not sure. Rarely do I have anyone from overseas, always the United States and now Canada. There are of course a few here and there from India, some from a few countries I have visited, but most of the demographics are in here.

So why am I talking about this instead of trying to make you smile? Well, I need your help. Last year I created a 29000sunsets calendar for 2016, and I will do so again for 2017 and now is the time but I need to choose 13 sunsets for a new calendar. I could do as I did last year but thought it would be as fun to see if anyone has a favorite and would like to choose. So if you have a favorite sunset in the close to 350 sunsets posted on this site right now, please send em the title of the day at nomatterwhat@29000sunsets.com and I will consider it for the calendar. 

Anyway, tonight was cool and brisk and satisfying, and I know life is great for everyone out there if they just open their eyes and see past the itty bitty bits of darkness. Open your mind and live for the truth, and you will be happy each and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, send me an email with your best sunset on 29000sunsets.com, and be happy each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

Today the rain came down in droves, pounding the living daylights out of everything. Then in a moment the rain was gone and the skies were clear, blue and calling to the sailboats to play in the wind. It is amazing how each and every day can be a masterful example of good, bad and indifferent and how quickly it can change from one to another.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember every day has its good and its bad, and even its indifferent portions, but the most important part of every day is you, so spend some time, perhaps just for a moment, and realize that life is good, because you are in it, and love life even more.

Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy you are a part of it, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

Once again we move forward and as we do we can consider our path in life, and how we face just about everything. The suns vibrant colors awaken our senses to the glory of the day and herald the entry into another night, a night of peace where we can feel the worries slip away to be replaced by hope.

It would be a lot easier if we had an instruction book. There are many people who choose their instruction books for life. Some choose well, some do not choose as well. Some try to make their books fit the situation only to realize they misinterpreted, or did not consider the best path. It would be nice if there was a nice book that said, "This happened so do that" and allowed us a way to see true and easy solutions, like making an IKEA cabinet every life would be the same, as every sunset could be the same. It is our interpretation that gives us a path towards individuality and that opens unique spirituality for us all. Some may agree, some disagree, but following a cookie cutter existence is more that likely not a very fulfilling existence, following a good series of guidelines makes more sense. Believe it or not, the best books to read give you clear and concise guidelines but leave the choice up to you. Things like "Thou shalt not kill" may seem like common sense, but who knows.

Anyway, if a man must travel many paths in life I can only hope he finds a way he can be a good man (as in mankind, this can be woman too) and as each road is traveled finds a way to be whole and fulfilled. It is true, there is no "this covers it all" instruction book, so live life as a good person, and enjoy the sunset it is worth it.

I thought about this all day for some weird reason and finally as the sun set took a good picture, and realized once again, "Hey, life is pretty good." and enjoyed the moment.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the sunset, and find your way to peace and happiness, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love, and love a little more, it means something...

The sun sets on another day...

In a complex system, like let's say weather, we find that strange side effects are caused by sometimes hidden issues. Something that looks pretty straightforward can actually be caused by the most minimal of items. Let's take the chaos example so many people use where a butterfly flapping its wings in the US can cause a storm in China. Sounds ridiculous but the smallest effect can have a larger effect on a global whole. We see this every night as sunset falls upon us and the colors are never the same, mostly because of variations in the atmosphere. (Boring I bet, but I do have a point)

So too are the factors in our lives that are caused by near ridiculous items. I know that I shower at least once daily and wash my hair often because of an off the cuff comment from a junior high school classmate who said something insensitive. I also know that I affected a young lady with a perm in high school in a negative manner and did not learn this until last year when I saw her in a store, she still will never have a perm. People fear the number 13 because of a legend, and bet on a favorite number because they saw it several times earlier in life. The point is a small item can cause a major effect in our lives and a large item can later be devastating or satisfying. There are so many possible outcomes.

Hope is surely not lost and we are not slaves to some unidentified item.. We do have a choice, and that choice is to accept and change our actions with the knowledge of how we interact with the world. It is a task but we can accept those things that try to negatively affect us, change those we can, and overcome those we cannot. Never let the negatives get to you at any time. (I have dozens of songs I could quote, but some of them cannot be repeated in a PG environment). We have the ability and the power to take a deep breath, and weather the storm, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day lift yourself above anything holding you back and find the courage to be a shining light for all to see, and if you can't, find someone help you to that level while remembering all the good in your life. Remember there are always people out there willing to help and be there for you, each and every day. Try to be there for others in the same way and we will move forward positively, positively. (Like how I did that?)

Sleep sweet, have fun, and laugh all you can, makes your face look cool...
