The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was white, well, that is what I could see. I still enjoyed it, and every day is an enjoyable one, even in the snow.

It snowed today. It snowed about 4 inches where I live and the dogs had fun it it. There is nothing like a clean blanket of snow, it just looks awesome! As the snow changed to rain and sleet the landscape became crunchy and I laughed at the dogs running around sounding like they were eating corn flakes. 

I know there are a lot of people out there who probably did not like that it snowed. Those people are looking for the half empty glass. The snow makes the world a little bit prettier, and it is a great part of the seasons. If you don't like the snow, great, but I will choose to enjoy it, and crunch around laughing each and every day I can.

So as the sun sets on another day, I hope you are enjoying yourself right now no matter where you are, and I hope that life is treating you well. There can be no better life than one that you enjoy, and I hope you can do that, rain or snow.

Sleep sweet, love life, and crunch crunch crunch....

The sun sets on another day...

I have written about passion often. Maybe a little more than often. At least 59 times I have made passion the center of my post.  Personally I don't think I have enough.

Maybe I need to preach passion like some man on a high pulpit screaming from the depths of his lungs. Perhaps I need to mention passion each day, perhaps I need to explain passion more often, perhaps I need to shut up. All are good choices.

Passion is that near uncontrollable feeling about doing something. It could be anything. A lot of people think passion is about religion or people, but really it is about feeling strongly about things. Passion can be a doorway to forever, or a perilous plunge. It can be that thing that allows you to excel and exceed, or it can be that one thing that takes you away from where you want to be and builds rabbit holes everywhere. I would like to think it is a lot like the force. There is a good and bad side to it, and we need to be mindful of passion lest we slip into the dark side. (muhahahah?)

So as the sun sets on another day, passion can be and often is the greatest motivator we have. It allows us to push when no one else is pushing, and somewhere along the way helps out day be better. Good or bad is up to us, but passion rules the day. Make your passion do good things, and live life as powerfully as you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wow!

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was still amazing though clouds rolled in and out the skies were lit by impressive fire. 


I write often about how life is like piloting a sailboat. There are numerous obstacles and of course the unpredictable wind. The level of unpredictability means you have to adapt to what is there, and find your way through constantly correcting and keeping your eye where you want to be, otherwise you may end up in Antarctica.

It is often true with life. You have to keep your eye on where you are going and eventually you will get there, but it may take a lot of work, and a lot of creative steering. Still, you can get there if you focus and deal with the change. A lot of people just let things happen and as they do they find themselves further from their goals and further from where they want to be. I remember years ago making a decision on the top of a hill, and having to change that decision simply because it was not just my decision. 

Funny how life happens isn't it? Change. Accept the winds you are given, and if they shift, stay the course you decide.

So as the sun sets on another day, life is a series of changes. Don't wait for them to happen or let them happen but instead be a part of it all. Make the best decisions possible and steer your course for today. Remember yesterday is gone and tomorrow will always be tomorrow, so focus on today and make it the best day ever, no matter what.,

Sleep sweet, love life, and change...

The sun sets on another day...

The sky closed in and the sunset sparkled in the western sky, wind and a few clouds made it an active sunset, still, I enjoy every one.

I cut down 6 tress today. They were all dead, and they had to be cleared. I enjoyed clearing cutting then loading and stacking them as I slowly cleared the area. 6 down, a few hundred to go. I knew it would be a strain holding the chainsaw for houses and working in the cool breeze, but the sun was out, and I just kept going until I was so hot the sweat caked on my hair, and my stocking cap was cool because of it.

Not many people are fans of pain. Tonight my biceps are convincing me I am getting old, and I should have not pushed so hard. Still, I would not have done it any other way and if weather permits I will be out there again tomorrow, cutting more and splitting the hardwood. Splitting with my axe that is. Why?

To me it is easy. I know there is pain. I have felt pain nearly every day of my life, still, every experience is an awesome opportunity to do and be more. Every moment is an adventure, and sometimes pain can be a good teacher, either physical or emotional it does not matter. Pain can help us grow. While I fight through it all, have your fun, push a little harder, take the chance on that person who may hurt you, do whatever it takes to be alive, and then do it. Life is worth it every day!

So as the sun sets on another day, I had fun today, sure it hurts a little now, but I will keep going, and pushing, and living my life each day because being alive is worth it. Live your life, and love all you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, have some fun, and enjoy your night...
