The sun sets on another day...

I read a quote today that said "Many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears". Consider for a moment, a dream is a wish your heart makes (or so Disney says) and there are so many dreams that we consider, then watch slowly fade away. A fear is an interpretation of a situation that causes us to react in a possibly negative way (Perhaps caused by a bad hot dog at 1:00 AM.) Fear can be a motivator for many people, but quite a few have fears that cause them to avoid their dreams, and end up putting them on a shelf in a box only to gather dust or never be seen again.

I read a story this week about a pair of enterprising young ladies that overcame any fears and are definitely on their way by opening a Wellness Clinic and trying to help people. Starting a business or running a business is an exercise daily in overcoming fear and facing adversity as you are trusting yourself to overcome all obstacles (both foreign and domestic) and in the process committing yourself to be committed. These young women and of course many many more people in the world are taking a risk to live a dream. Perhaps (Read definitely if you read between my lines) we should all be taking a chance with our dreams and making those dreams a reality and in the process overcoming the bonds of fear that threaten to hold us down each and every day.

Personally I find a try to live my dreams daily, whether it is writing, laughing, taking pictures, or doing whatever to set and exceed a personal goal, I want to be able to say I did that. If you remember Jamie Lee Curtis in "True Lies" I think she said it best by stating "It's just there's so much I want to do with this life and it fells that I haven't done any of it. You know, the sand is running out of the hourglass, and I want to look back and say, "see, I did that, that was me, I was reckless and I was wild, and I f***ing did it.""

Wouldn't it be nice if we could all say that?

So as the sun sets on another day it is time. Ride a bike, ride a motorcycle, fly a plane, drive super fast, start a new relationship, skydive, para-sail, open a new business, expand your current business, plan a parade, or just do something amazing that you have only dreamed of doing, and as your dreams become reality, your new dreams will help you reach the moon, and the stars beyond.

Sleep sweet, love life, and dream a little dream

The sun sets on another day...

As we wander through life we sometimes have to consider old words that will always make sense. Hence I give you the following quote:

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

I would add to this famous set of words, "and there is always a time to live". I may also add "there is a time for the sun to rise, and for the sun to set" since it is one of my passions. In the end my purpose today is easy. There is truly a time for everything and today should be the time for us all to find our way, to be happy, and to make a difference in life, no matter what.

So as the sun sets on another day, let's take a moment and enjoy our time, live for our time, and make our days the best ever.

Sleep sweet, love, and love some more....

The sun sets on another day...

The sun seemed to wane tonight as the adults and children alike watched another day pass, and knew tomorrow started school in so many places. I listened well as I waited for an Ice Cream and the stories flew of children not being ready, of parents being overly ready, and of a myriad of cleanup items. The boats being closed for the season, cleanup of yards and other items flew in the air like the wispy breeze. It is comforting to know that summer actually ends far later in the month, but tomorrow will be the start of fall for students in this area at least, and I can only hope they get to enjoy the days and nights even more as friendships rekindle and new friendships begin.

So as the sun sets on another day, don't give up on summer just yet, and enjoy the sunset anyway, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

Each day can be an adventure if you want it to be. Today while at the top of the Silver Lake Lighthouse I looked down on the world, and smiled. The crisp and clear waters below called and no, I did not put on a squirrel suit and jump, instead I walked out to the beach and enjoyed myself after feeling like I was on top of the world, because maybe I was.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the time and the moment, and take advantage of those moments, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, love life, and lay in the sun once in a while and watch it as it sets, then enjoy the moment some more...
