The sun sets on another day...
So does the moon, and the stars wander for all time on their axis depending on us.
I had written a long post about truth and living a life of truth, and will end up positing it another day. Today it is only fitting that I suggest family is one of the more important things in our lives. I have heard many discount family, set it aside, move in favor of other avenues instead of family, but as the sun and moon are in our sky so too must a child an parent be in their lives for all time. We cannot easily set aside the idea of being independent, but we cannot set aside our dependence either. A father and child or a mother and child are locked in a matrix until the moment the child becomes the father (or mother) and the cycle continues.
I know I can always count on my children, and I hope they know they can count on me as I try to show them each and every day in some small way.
So as the sun sets on another day consider your family, brothers and sisters, fathers and sons, daughters and mothers, and all the plethora of people who will be there for you, no matter what. Remember that often friends can be as close as family, and then they should be treated as such, but that is very rare. Be thankful when it is there, and include them to make your family strong.
Sleep sweet, enjoy your day, and Happy Birthday my son...
The sun sets on another day...
As the sun crosses the sky it does what it intends to do, and light our paths.
Wouldn't it be nice if we all lit our own paths? Wouldn't it be nice if we could shine a light that would guide others to us? (Or maybe warn them away.
Fireflies can do this with bioluminescence, we are not so lucky and I was not rattling about light anyway, and instead was being philosophical in that we should light our paths with knowledge and wisdom, and find a way for all others to be drawn to us daily. Maybe just maybe we could light a path towards something more than the plethora of less than perfect situations out there today. We can each be guiding lights towards happiness and a better world if we only try.
So as the sun sets on another day, smile and let someone know you are smiling, then help them find their own smile, it will be worth it.
Sleep sweet and wish on a star, I will be wishing on it too!
The suns sets on another day...
I have always believed that we survive most effectively when the fires of our passion eliminate the clouds that surround us. As the sun shines so brightly it burns away the fog, our passion should shine so strongly it burns away the fogs in our life. We have fogs in our life? Usually these are (In my experience) brought on by the negatives we experience. The people who purposefully try to bring us down, degrade situations or just plain are not very nice. Sometimes these people are so heavily trying to protect themselves that they believe their own untruths, those are the people that say "I can do better..." or "I was going to but I..." and items that are spoken from an authoritative point of view without both sides present. (Scary stuff right?) we also face those situations that are less than pleasant (oh the list is long, but illustrious) with everything from disaster to vacation on it. (Yes vacations can be stressful, see every Captain Obvious Commercial)
In the end we have the passion and perseverance to overcome even the biggest fogs just by staying positive and being positive every day. Even when the world crushes down, don't let it get to you, move on, move up, and find a way to be happy, simply because...(wait for it)...you can do better!
So as the sun sets on another day, let your positive attitude and passion shine away the fogs of your life, and create a situations that just is amazing for you and those around you, each and every day. Remember, those situations and people who are less than positive, well, they will be resolved, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, enjoy the moment, and smile, just smile...
The sun sets on another day,
it does so with power and presence,
unwavering for all time,
never wavering in decision,
knowing the next day, it would be back again.
I came across a funny poster today that said "We could all learn something from the indecisive squirrel that tried to cross the road...". I had seen the poster and memes before, but it really hit me as funny today, and made me laugh a lot. A lot of times we don't make good decisions, and in the process of missing that good decision, we make a decision by not making a decision at all. It is true, not making a decision is a decision within itself, and we need to be aware that each time we avoid our paths, whether good or bad, we take the chance of causing issues by not making a decision.
Sounds confusing, I know, but make your way, follow the sun, and be the person you should be, all the time.
So as the sun sets on another day, remember that life is a series of adventures and make the decision to live as many as you can, no matter what...
Sleep sweet, wake up, enjoy life, wash, rinse repeat, spin, dry, and have fun!
