The sun sets on another day...

I always enjoy the sunset. Not just because it is amazingly beautiful and reminds me of all the sunsets I have seen, and all of the beauty in our lives (though that is a good reason) but also because the sunset closes a day and begins a new cycle. I am always less excited when I watch the wisps of smoke that pass over us, with seemingly no beginning or end. Smoke can stretch on forever and be invisible, but still there when we smell it or see telltales.

In my opinion, life is enjoyed when we define ourselves by our beginnings and endings, and know we have completed phases or items as we progress. We may not feel as much satisfaction when things stretch on and never seems to close. I believe strongly that the things we complete in life open new doors for us to move to a newer better phase, or at least as fulfilling. There is always a newer mountain and that place or thing we can call a new goal.

So as the sun sets on another day, complete one section in life,and set your goals to be forever more challenging and forever more beautiful, and live fulfilled every day you can, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, love life, and live every day reaching for the moon, and the stars beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

Ever consider how much power is hitting us during a sunset? According to a non confirmed source (how would you confirm this exactly anyway?) the Sun's output is 3.8 x 1033 ergs/second, or about 5 x 1023 horsepower. That is a lot, and in a fraction of a second enough energy is put out to power our world past our known history. (or so) To put it more simply the sun affects us more than any other item that we know of, even more than gravity and the host of other items that are out there. We literally revolve around the sun, daily giving us great sunrises and sunsets.

So what?

Well, the point of this tirade is to let you know that some of the things we think are super important, really are not, and for the most part our power and the power people have over is is pretty small. Basically, the next time someone says "nya nya" we should consider saying back "the sun is bigger than you" laughing, and moving on. Even when we think it is the most important thing ever, there is always, "nya nya".

I guess I need another point and that would be easy, when someone tells you something that is not complimentary, say "nya nya" (Well inside at least), if someone is unkind, "nya nya", someone breaks your heart, "nya nya, or if someone or something makes you feel small, just pass on it and move forward in a positive manner knowing you are special and they are as well, just maybe not as happy as you can be. 

This is pretty much a sappy post, but as the sun sets on another day, just remember that you are the source of your power, there is always a greater power, and to be happy, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love and love again, and live life like it is the best thing ever, because it is....

The sun sets on another day...

Slowly we turn, step by step, inch by inch, yearning for more sunsets, but as we go through our days in North America now, the sunsets come earlier and earlier, and our days get shorter. We hang on to the moments, trying to stretch the days yet knowing that soon they will be no more, and we will be in the embrace of winter.

So too it is in life, we hold on day to day until slowly we are in the embrace of the winter of our lives, but wait! That's right wait! We do not need to go quietly into that night, we can hold on, hold on to passion, and love, and life and instead of seeing the winter come, stoke the flames higher, and make our days better yet.

So as the sun sets on another day, lets skip the embrace of the shorter days and instead look at a brighter future for all the days we have left, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, enjoy the moment, and love each day as thought it were the best ever...

The sun sets on another day...

...and offers the chance for another amazing sunset picture that brightens our lives.

That is my perspective and today as I was working on a great picture with a friend I thought a lot about perspective. In the process I decided that pictures are a lot easier than people. (You can laugh here and say "duh" if you want, I am good with it)

 People have a tendency to see a slice of good or bad depending on how it serves them. I know people who have been brutal "for someones own good" and people who have been nice to someone brutal "because the deserve it" all along not realizing how important they are and how they should be the focus of who they are, not everyone else.

Perhaps that is my perspective, but the reality is that people are accountable for their actions, and cannot live their life according to anyone else's opinions unless it fits with their needs, even mine. The need should never be to self inflate or self deflate, just to be happy.

Of course that too is a perspective, and I hope it is one that we can all live with, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, find that happy perspective that works for you, and make it work for you. Enjoy others, but know yourself first, and be the best you can be, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, smile constantly, and love, just love...
