the sun sets on another day...
Today is an amazing day because you are in it! When you look at the day, every day, from that perspective you will do well because each day is a potential adventure, a time to live, a time to love, and a time to learn. There is so much out there that can make a difference if you just take a moment and look for it. The special person place you are going to right now may not seem special, but it is wondrous within itself.
One of my favorite movies is the Seven Faces of Dr. Lao and one of my favorite quotes is:
Mike, the whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, Mike, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
Imagine for just a moment if we could live in that wonderful circus every day. So look deeply into that handful of dirt, and make it a marvel, and while you are at it, live life, love all you can and make every day an amazing one...
The sun sets on another day...
the future is bright and hopeful like a pleasant sunset. Time grasps us with colors that change each of our days into wonderful images of a future. Before you now is a glimpse of a series of futures. The future of a writer, or a writer who just had fun. No matter what a passion which is undying. Perhaps we all should go forward and live our dreams. I know I have one piece of mine.
Live life, love every moment, and if you feel down ever, just look at the sunset and imagine a future that only you can make, then make it happen...
I have completed my first full feature size novel. Off to editing now and hopefully a publish date soon.
A labor of love, the hardest part will be the dedication as so many helped me or pushed me to get here.
A few weeks and it will be time to start book 2!!!!
Have an amazing night!
The sun sets on another day...
Today's picture was not a sunset, but it was fun taking it and enjoying the walk at this location. Unfortunately the sunset was eaten by clouds at the last minutes, but I have received several in email today for those days in the future.
Having just seen "the Revenant" the consistent message was to loom at the trunk of the tree in the storm, and though it sways, the core is what lets you know it's power. I agree, but feel that the roots take it even further. As you look at the tree, deep roots will allow survival while shallow roots will mean potential disaster.
So as the sun sets on another day think not only about making each day the best day of your life, but also about making your core the strongest it can be, so as we enjoy tomorrow as well. Remember who you are at your core, and have the honor, integrity and passion to lead others. trust that others will do the same, and when they don't help them find the way (Or maybe find the door, oops, did I say that)
Smile, love life, live for each day, and wish upon a star as a promise that life will be good as long as you make it good!
