The sun sets on another day...

Today we have a sunset picture in the fog and mist, reminiscent of Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield.

It is always amazing to consider the number of songs that just might fit how you are feeling right now. If you are happy there are literally hundreds of songs that describe your mood, sad, hundreds more, melancholy, still even more, willing to eat melon with a collie, well i have't found that one but I am sure it is out there.

I am constantly amazed by the fact that somewhere out there someone may be going through something similar to you, and even worse (gasp) me!

In that same line of thought (If there is a line to thought) so many people have said there are few new stories in life, and I would challenge there are currently fewer new songs, and even fewer new movies. (After all, they are all "reboots") But wait, perhaps I am wrong. (As happens a lot) perhaps there is a new story every moment and that story could be the story that is more touching than the Notebook, more awe inspiring than Avatar, more interesting than the Harry Potter Series, and more timeless than Star Wars. Maybe it is time for everyone to document their story, and make it a reality.

My point is, it is time to create a new story and do something new, we may feel the same, but our stories are so different. Often we do what is expected, the norm, or something that truly follows some ordained path, but maybe it is time for some new paths. A path towards passion, happiness, and the honest beauty of the sunset. After all, instead of a bouquet of flowers, shouldn't we build a bouquet of sunsets that will never fade and make us all amazed at their beauty for all time?

Anyway, love life, live life, and make today your own, and take the time and make tomorrow yours as well, life is worth it, no matter what....

And now for something completely different...I have changed the podcast to weekly because it is just too much to do daily. You can find it here.

The sun sets on another day...

Each day we make a choice to be happy or not so happy, or of course a pain in the bottom. Each day we make the decision. One more time, each day WE make the decision. There is no one in the world that can truly make you happy, on the other hand, there is no one in the world that can truly make you unhappy. You give each person the power to affect you, one way or another. It is imperative that each person on the face of this planet somehow understand that no matter how bad things are, you can be a positive person, and by the same token, no matter how good things are you can still be unhappy.

This is a personal choice. We can create situations that make you unhappier, or happier, but nothing can truly set the tone or take over our lives but us.

I once knew a woman that had nothing, (and I mean nothing) but she was one of the happiest people I ever met. At church she was always positive and volunteered, tithed (even though she never had money) and made the world a better place by being in it. She defined herself daily by who she wanted to be, and when people put her down she shrugged it off like an elephant would a mosquito. I heard someone ask her how poor she was once, and she said simply, "She was rich in life."

I also have known several people who were well off, and had everything that most people dream of, and are the most miserable people you could meet. One man in particular I know has a beautiful house, wonderful children, an amazing wife, and more money in the bank than most. Is he happy? Absolutely not. He continuously looks like the world is coming to an end, and lives his life without interacting with anyone.

Eeek, I seem to have rattled on.

My point of today, is don't sweat the petty things, or pet the sweaty things and don't let others define who you are, instead make every day that day that will be closer to the happiness you deserve (and it is a lot!). Define who you are each day, and as you do, make every day a lesson in happiness. 

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish on the farthest star and love your way to it...

The sun sets on another day...

..and we consider how we interact as people.

People? Yes people.

There are lots of things we can call each other, and far too often we do. Some of these things are not so nice, and some are amazing. We have to ask ourselves daily why we would ever talk to someone as less than we are, and why we would accept being less important than we really are to the world. Remember, every day we have an opportunity to make a difference, not just to ourselves, but to the world as a whole. Any moment we might have the opportunity to save a person, or make a person smile, laugh, or see the world in a better way. This is far better than seeing the world as a hindrance, sometimes sad, or as a series of mundane days.

So as the sun sets on another day, and as we meet new people, laugh with them, teach them our point of view and as we learn theirs, let's also take a moment and make life better for everyone, and in that, feel life flow through us as it should.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make every day so special that you know it will be remembered, no matter what...

I will apologize upfront if this seems depressing.

Sometimes you just have to feel the spirit and understand that things are or are not meant to be.

I knew a man once that tried to change the world. Everyday he was positive upbeat and made sure that everyone knew that they should be a happy person. Only a few months ago he passed away. His legacy, his family, lives on each day. I am blessed each day to have known him and to have been a part of his life. So as the Sun sets on another day be thankful for those people that you're with that guide you into a positive avenues and help you see the world in a better way and to all those who knew Jim smile a little and be happy.
