The sun sets on another day...

Today I did not expect a sunset to be seen, the clouds were thick and thunder rang above like steady beating drums in the Congo. As it came closer to sunset a glimmer of pink lit the far sky and I raced to the car to get a shot of a sunset. (Overly obsessed if you ask me)

As I found several places and got several pictures I considered how sometimes the paths in life are not clear, and we have to take chances to find the path we should be on. I considered writing today about a clear path to tranquility but as I pondered tranquility and the many paths I have walked I realized there was no "clear path" and only a series of paths that may lead to tranquility, but do not guarantee such. 

So what is tranquility? By definition tranquility is calm (more or less) and how can you find the calm within a maelstrom like we currently live in? How can we find peace when chaos abounds. In my opinion we should look at our path daily and adjust our sights towards being calm. I know a lot of people who as they age become more fiery of heart, and lose the tranquility they should gain, and many who go the other way, but I choose to be tranquil at all times unless it is necessary to not be so. (That is another story). I suggest to everyone that peace of heart and calm is a much better state than constant chaos. After all, will the world end if there is no Pokeball today, will people change their opinion of you if you are wearing a two weak old shirt, is your hair more important than a moment of reflection? Is your appointment more important than just slowing down for a moment?

I would say there are about a million of these question, perhaps more, but my point is, take a breath and take the calm path rather than embracing anger. Trust me, anger can be a hard path.

So as the sun sets on another day, be calm, and do something fun today, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, love someone, and live your life like no one has before...

The sun sets on another day...

 Ever notice as the sun sets it appears larger and larger and it could be coming right at you and you would not be surprised! Sometimes we things things are coming at us and we make decisions that are not completely based on fact, and instead on perception. It is very telling when talking to groups of people and determining that their decisions are base don how they interpret the world, but the world just might not be the way they think it is.

Sometimes you need distance to see even more clearly, distance can give you perspective that you cannot get when in the middle of it all. For example, today I was playing paintball with my family. The girls and I were against the boys, and as we fought the first time we charged in and were instantly trying to see where everyone was, because we were in the middle of it all it was difficult to gauge. So, next game, I hung back, and achieved a lot of success from a distance where I could see my team and the other players, then fought through it all. 

I know, a strange example, but it can be applied well in many areas. If you step back for a moment, it gives you the ability to see more clearly and perhaps make better decisions. (No promises)

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy the moments and take a few to see beyond easy perceptions and maybe, just maybe, the big picture will prevail and make your life a better place! (Unless it cant get any better)

Sleep sweet, love life, and breathe, it is good for you!

The sun sets on another day...

The cool brisk air blows
It is a great day to live
The beach sunset sets

 It is a good day for Haiku, actually every day is if you look at it right. Focusing thoughts into a small phrase means you spend time thinking more about meaning and being cosine than being lost in language. My opinion. Perhaps if the world thought more about the meaning of the words they said and less about just saying words we would all be better for it. Perhaps, or perhaps not.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the words you use, once said they cannot be taken back.

Sleep sweet, love life, and love more than ever each and every day, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

Mother Theresa once said "Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." I believe she hit on a major issue in our times, and perhaps was trying to open the door for us all to be happier and more fulfilled in our life. We all should try to achieve what she stated in her simple way as the world would be a better place if we just said a few kind words.

Recently I was told that some people referred to me as "Mr Happy" and I laughed at that. First and foremost because Robin Williams had an entirely different definition of Mr Happy and second although I always try to help people, be friendly and be happy I am not sure you can judge anyone by a few moments, but perhaps I am wrong.

Simply, why don't we take the time to enjoy ourselves for a moment and enjoy life. and maybe take in a sunset.

So as the sun sets on another day, say a few kind words to a few kind people, enjoy the moment, yourself, and be happy with who you are, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and smile!!!!!!!
