The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was hidden in the sky, and the world saw it high above while I looked on and just smiled at the rolling clouds.

Today was an interesting day for me. There was a storm rolling in and at the same time there were a variety of imaginary substorms. It may surprise you to know I was an early adopter of social media, or it may not.  In the early days MUDS ran rampant and chat board consisted of short statements on very slow modems that came out on paper. There was fiery indignation by all, but mostly the people involved were computer geeks and over the top academics, so it was not Filled with the people it is now, nor the interesting interactions of today.

I have found I am not a consistent fan anymore. I have seen social media go through Friendster, Bebo, Myspace and a dozen others that few have heard of. There have been virtual worlds and virtual interactive communities. The Facebook became Facebook and AOL pretty much died a horrible death. Still, people interacted, people became more and more addicted. About 5 years ago I slowed down on social media, just because. It was stale and I had other things to do, things in the real world.

About a year ago I started getting involved again. For nearly 5 years I have posted a link to here each night, but I started interacting again, being involved a little, testing the waters. I have found there are a lot of things the same, and a lot different. There seems to be more defiance, more outspoken opinion, more stress. I have not decided if I will slow down again, but I have decided I will take the positive path where so many others embrace the negative. I have always tried to do so, but sometimes the dark side is just to appealing, too over the top.

As I do, I will defiantly say have a good day, and look for the good positives in each day, and not get lost in the mire and quicksand I see. With that in mind I sit here in peace, and will go work for a while, having fun as I can, and spreading a laugh or two along the way.

So what? Well, I am just going to suggest you do the same. It is only a suggestion and you can go your own way, but it is far too easy to blast out opinions when there are positive places to go. After all, the positives in life can be found if you look for them, and the positives are a way to remove the negatives without all the other stuff that gets knocked around all the time. It is just a suggestion, but I find I feel a lot better being positive, then being any other way. Your choice.

So as the sun sets on another day, the bear and the rabbit are in the woods again, and we really need to laugh at them and with them, and smile a little along the way. I am certainly going to try, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love rampantly, and laugh a lot while you can...

The sun sets on another day...

I'm looking at the positives every day and as i gaze at the sun set slowly setting in the West I can do nothing but smile at all of the things that we have to be thankful for.

It's easy in today's world to get mired in the murky depths of doubt and despair. Don't get me wrong there are plenty of things that we should be paying attention to but somewhere in the midst of it all we have to rise above the negative and find the positive. I know this is hard. But find those positive things in your life and hold on to them and they will help you deal with the negative things that are currently attacking us all.

While you're at it find some room for love and acceptance of people in your life and maybe just maybe we can all be part of a positive change.

So as the sun sets on another day let's all try to find a higher road today and maybe just maybe we can fit in a laugh or two while we're there. Don't let the world get you down and once in awhile lift someone else up. you will find a way if you want to no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love little more...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was spectacular and an amazing reverse of our sunset yesterday. Clouds formed, and held the sun at bay until the dropped beneath the cloud cover and lit the horizon. I suppose you could call it a peekaboo sunset, or instead of calling it anything you could just enjoy it.

Have you ever noticed there are times you should pause? Have you ever noticed there are times that are so taxing you should just pause? Have you ever noticed how sometimes you are enjoying a moment so much you should just pause? There are times we really need to set the world aside and pause. Sometimes these are overwhelmingly bad, but hopefully a lot of the time they can be overwhelmingly good.

I have had the privileged of meeting  people who are worth more than a moment, more than a few. It is satisfying always when you are talking to someone or a group of people and time just passes, no work, no thought, just suddenly time passes and it is another time. Those people are to be cherished as they see the world as a series of adventures, and you can be a part of that adventure. 

Today I spoke to a few people who just made time fly by. One in particular was so full of life it was overflowing, and as they spoke I smiled and just paused, enjoyed the moment and went on. 

Listen(er, read?), it is easy to get lost in the negatives right now, but if we pause for a moment and set the negatives aside, then move forward with the positives perhaps we will enjoy our days a little more. Perhaps, just perhaps, the world will melt away for a moment as we find the better avenue, and the more lenient path.

So as the sun sets on another day, ahhh, a nice pause, a great day, and a fantastic moment. Take the time, smile, laugh, engage, be one of those people that brightens someones day. Be one of those people that brightens everyone's day, and enjoy every moment you can, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love live, from sea to shining sea...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was spectacular but was taken again by the clouds. The clouds were of course quite amazing as well, but the sunset shone brightly in the western offset by the amazing waves rolling into the shoreline.

I by chance read a small note on a social media site. I wanted to share my version.

If you can read this you should be thankful, thankful that you were born and someone cared for you

If you can read this be thankful for growing up, good or bad you made it

If you can read this be thankful you can read, so many helped you find your way

If you can read this be thankful for the time you have had, it is precious

If you can read this, have hope for today is a new day and you are in it

So as the sun sets on another day, be happy because you saw it, enjoy it because it is beautiful, and love the moments you can, no matter what.

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