The sun sets on another day....

...and it was successful.

Have you ever considered how the world would be if the sun was not successful in its climb from sunrise to sunset. Ick, that would be awful.

For us there is not always a clear path to success and instead we have to find our way with a little more difficultly. Sometimes it is our fault, sometimes it is just that change is not so easy for some people, and sometimes, well sometimes we just fail. Winston Churchill once said, "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" and this is our salvation. Sometimes we just need to keep failing, knowing there is success in there somewhere, even if it hurts, even if it is not good, we need to strive forward and succeed. I had a comic framed on my wall for some time. An issue of an old comic "X-Men" where one of the antagonists was called out "Get up, and I will knock you down again" while the antagonist simply replied: "You still do not get it, knock me down 100 times and I will rise the 101st as strong and as fresh as ever."

It is in that vein, even from a bad guy, that we must react and make the world our place to succeed, knowing we may fall, but nothing will get us down, and in the end, we will be more than ever as we will truly be able to say we worked for our success, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, live life like you cannot fail, and when you do, allow yourself to learn and fail again, for eventually you will succeed...

Sleep sweet, love as you can, and live for the moment that you will have success...

The sun sets on another day...

As I sit tonight and watch the waves hit the shore, and the colors from a thousand rainbows assail the night I consider old quotes from smart individuals. A famous man once said "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." (If you look it up you will find it is Churchill)

I find that often this is a little sideways and should be modified slightly to "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give without expectation of return nor fame or fortune upon delivery."

Why?

I know a person more than a few people, and hope to continue meeting even more. One person I know gives of himself until he can do no more, and in the process is often unknown, even though he is "known" by many. He would give the shirt off his back if necessary and think nothing of it. He is a true unknown and unsung hero to all that don't know him. This man does not look for things to solve, instead they come to him and he just does them.

Another person I know does everything for people and expects to be well recognized. Now don't get me wrong, she makes a strong impact, but possibly not for the reasons to help people, but instead to look good for herself. This opinion is born out of the sometimes arrogant and out of line comments she makes and her overly aggressive behavior to some individuals. Some people still see her as a benefit, but they do not pay sufficient attention to the negative aspect of her influence.

But wait, who cares about the negative? Let's discard that and just consider daily what we should do for others with no expectation of return. A smile, a laugh, a bad joke, a good joke, a kind word, subtle encouragement and much more. All this should be done for the purpose of making others lives better, without regard to your own. 

As always, this is my opinion, you must consider for yourself how you will judge your actions later by those people you help and how much, and of course those you hurt.

So as the sun sets on another day, let's consider others and how to make their lives better, and in the process, make our lives complete, even if no one knows who we are. Maybe, just maybe, we can create a few rainbows in other peoples lives.

Sleep sweet, love life, and listen to good music tonight, just because...

The sun set son another day...

Have you ever seen a spark become more? There are quite a few things in life that start small and become amazing infernos of light and life. A close friend of mine just took a song from an idea to an amazing production that may one day set his life on a new path. So many sparks, and a spark in the wind can either be snuffed out by the air, or inflamed and become a burning malestrom of passion and success. The trick is, at least in my opinion, to keep creating those sparks and watching them and trying to get them to fuel so they can become that amazing ember that may well last for all time.

So many people have great ideas, great minds and can make a difference. Take the chance, spend the time, make it happen.

So as the sun set son another day, rememebr your passion and your ideas may be the next great idea that changes the world, gives us a new passion, shows a new light, teaches us more, or just lets us laugh and live in the world for a moment. It is always worth it to fan that spark, and help it grow.

Sleep sweet, love life, and if you get a second, consider how little Michael changed the world...
