The suns sets on another day...
Today the wind blows wild. If you sit and listen to the wind you will hear its song as it passes through the trees and of course the occasional wind chime. Hopefully you will smile as you hear the battle between the power of the wind and the strength of the tree, the gentle crack of a limb as it stretches and contracts. Close your eyes and feel the breeze wash over you, and as it does, feel the gentle power, and not so gentle power it controls. Then feel the sun warm you and help you feel as though the world were new. The chimes will ground you always as they are man's gift to the wind.
Sounds fun huh?
Perhaps sometimes we need to think of the trials of life as fast blowing wind. The strength of them blowing to you, but the safety you can feel if you just listen and pay attention. There really is not anything we cannot weather if we have friends and pay attention.
So as the sun sets on another day, consider the wind and the power it holds in your life, and let it pass by you, knowing your friends have deep roots like the trees of the forest. (sentimental today)
Sleep sweet, love life, and listening to the chimes...
As the sun sets on another day I read something that was written a long time ago, perhaps forever ago..
How long is forever? I am not sure, but forever seems to have a finite line for some people. Why do I say that? Well, in what I read a woman wrote to a man that she would love him forever (Not to be confused with the song) and the words were soft and sweet and inviting, and I knew the words they came from were finite. (For those of you that do not know, finite is less than forever). So I wondered as I pondered the meaning of life and my own, as I do a great deal, how many people live with forever?
Think about it, loving someone forever seems to be a chore, being there forever seems to be a chore, only the sun, that rises in the east and sets in the west seems to be there forever. I would like to think I keep forever as well, but I have failed too.
Consider, forever is a long time, but sometimes we just cannot make it forever, that is for our creator, instead we are driven by a million things we either understand, or we do not understand, and we press on, not quite for forever, but for all we can make it.
In my opinion, forever is like 10 million dollars. It is a nice dream, it is something to push for, but in the end we cannot really comprehend it, so it exists, but only as much as it does in our mind until we make it real.
A short shout out to to G+L who may really make forever something we can all believe in, no matter what.
So as the sun sets on another day, reach for forever, be that person who believes, and not the person who gives up and live life for a passion that will make everyone else feel good inside as well...
Sleep sweet, love life, to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...
The sun sets on another day...
And so it goes, the son becomes the father and the father becomes the son. The cycle renews, and as we progress into our days we realize that all we know is who we are, and that is all we have become.
Isn't that special. Do we know who we are?
I have been told by several people I am a product of my environment. I suppose that is true for all of us and we adapt to our situations and become that thing that we should be to satisfy those who are around us. At least to an extent. I truly believe we are who we are which is a difficult position to be in at some times because we end up in situations where we think we can change, or others can change, and they are who they are as well. I may be a little unpopular with this opinion, but it is difficult for people to change, and difficult to see beyond who you are. This creates a general question that many people have a difficult time understanding. Who are you?
That is always the "question". Who are you and who are you going to be, and who have you been, but don't spend as much time on that one.
The big one is "who are you?" and in that question we find ourselves going down a path of multiple issues and answers, until we define ourselves as we should be defined.
That is not to say we are different people, or always the same people, but we are a series of incredible events with one common crux, us. It is a good thought to consider as you drive in the morning, evening, on a trip or somewhere quiet. Who are you? What do you stand for? What are your hot buttons? What turns you off? Walk through the list and determine those things that make you, you. In the process, determine if you like you, and make the necessary adjustments if you can, or accept yourself as you are if you cannot make any adjustments. Let me reiterate though, you may be able to change what you do in situations, but it is near impossible to change who you are without some truly divine assistance.
Anyway, as the sun sets on another day, consider yourself, those things that affect you, and who you are, then who you want to be. Use whatever means necessary to make it happen. No matter what.
Sleep sweet, love, and become the person you want to be, and be that person....
The sun sets on another day...
Once in a great while we find that one thing we love to do, and it is up to us to do it.
Once in a great while we find that opportunity that could lead us to greatness, but has risk, and it is up to us to do it.
Once in a great while we find the perfect friend who would be there to the end of time if you let them, and it is up to us to cherish the friend,
Once in a great while, we find a love that makes our heart skip a beat, and it is up to us to hold on and love the ride.
Once in a great while, the sun sets with an intensity that makes us all gasp, and it is up to us to be there.
I know this is an odd set of words, but once in a while, make something happen, love yourself, and live for the moment.
So as the sun sets on another day, lets try to change once in a while, to every day, and create a life that just is amazing.
Sleep sweet, love for a while, not just once, and wish upon a star...
