The sun sets on another day...

The night falls upon us and the hand of Morpheus closes upon us, taking us into the world of dreams. there we find solace in the peace of our dreams or turmoil, or even fear.

In the movie "What dreams may come" the world between worlds is a place of colors that are less than solid and a series of events that both are and are not under our control. True, the movie is about more than a dream, but dreams are, or at least can be, a place of wonder.

Although I have always avoided sleep I have enjoyed so many fantastic dreams, solving problems and enjoying "alternity" where the things that should have happened in life, could be real.

When I was younger and before I could change a dream while in it (Another story) I would sometimes take a turn and see nightmare. Things I could not control would overwhelm and when I was a child the monsters of my rather interesting life would be given animate anger and would come for me, causing more than just a moment of young fear.

On my curio there stands a small porcelain dinosaur. It was given to me by my grandmother and it was there when i was young and felt the nightmares close in. In my dreams when they came, the dinosaur would take a life of its own as well, and then protect me from all that came. Probably silly, but this slow progression let the darkness that could invade become a light that could lead me forward, to better thoughts, better moments, and better dreams.

So as the sun sets on another day, remember your dreams are a window to who you are, hopes, fears, positives, and negatives, and those dreams may well be some of the best and worst moments of your life. Grab on to your own "dinosaur" or something to make it easier, perhaps the colors of a sunset, and move your dream to a positive place. I know you are worth it.

Sleep sweet, dream a little dream, and love life, each and every day...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun was setting the walk was painful. It was not a long walk, but each step was filled with an underlying agony. Step by step the burning grew, and finally a bench was in sight. Maintaining composure as the bench got closer until finally for a moment there was rest.

Ever feel like that? Each step is painful and it seems like the rest we finally get? It happens but perhaps we should remember that it could be worded another way.

As the sun was setting the walk reminded me of life. It was bittersweet and reminded me each moment there was hope as i still felt alive and saw my salvation. Moments may pass, but i know as i move forward I will soon get to refresh my life so I can move on.

Same thoughts, different approach.

So as the sun sets on another day remember that those things in life we put a bad spin on can be our salvation, and may be there to truly remind us how lucky we are today.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love some more, it is worth it...

The sun sets on another day...

There is always a lot to consider when it comes to interactions with other people. As I drove to a particularly good presentation today I had a conversation with a person who was having issues. One of my statements was do not let others anger you as they then control you.  As we discussed and I suggested strongly they step away from the source of the fire fanning person I considered all the times that anger plays a role in people lives.  To me anger is something to avoid many people embrace anger, fear and other base emotions as they don't seem to get the bad part of it all.

Low and behold as I listened to the presentation moments later, it came back. There on the screen, don't let people make you angry, it allows them to control you. Funny huh how this comes right back out. The statement "I will try" was mentioned and was rapidly followed by a slide with Yoda on it. "There is no try, do or do not".

Truth huh?

So as the sun sets on another day, set anger aside and instead be patient and see the world from a realistic point of view. Sounds better huh?

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the night, it was a good sunset!
