The sun sets on another day...

Today as the colors shine around us and cover us with their flavorful embrace (Yes, flavorful) we should consider the ride we are all on each and every day. There are so many items that push us into an emotional roller coaster that we should be dizzy day by day. From little to big it dazzles the imagination on just how difficult this thing called life can be. So who cares, right? Well maybe we all should, maybe at the center of our lives we should consider what is important in our lives and what is not. Money or family? Friends or work? Love or stability? There are so many questions. Perhaps the answer as always should be balance. We need to do what is right, and what we feel in balance and not just choose the one path we think may be correct. Right? Well, it is not really for me to say, but it is for you to say. Are you happy now? Can we be happy focused on just being carefree and frivolous, can we be happy just being serious and stoic? Good questions to be sure but in the end, just questions.

So as the sun sets on another day, lets just take a moment and take stock, take a walk with someone new, smile and laugh a bit, enjoy a cookie, or a carrot, and just have fun.

Sleep sweet, love life, and keep calm and be a little dizzy sometimes....

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun sets it lights a path for us to follow, so too as the sun rises, we are given a path, either directly or indirectly by the light. Mariners would follow the sun and know its course was always true, so how can we know our course is true and what light do we follow?

I started down this path 30 minutes ago and had launched into a treatise on everything from religion to not following that ego-maniacal zealot that enslaves your mind and asks you to shun your friends and lie to the people you love. Ick. I decided that I would not want to read all of that crap, and decided for you that you would not either.

So instead there are people in the world who really love you, and that is where you should look for a light. Those people that will stand beside you in spite of circumstance and will be there no matter what. There is a reason I focus on that phrase. If someone says it, they should mean it, no matter what. Not to be covered with deceit or lies of any type, and instead purely as it is said, no matter what

So as the sun sets on another day, hold on to those people you can believe in, the ones who lift you higher and hold you up each and every day. Hold on to the ones who make your life better even when they struggle, and hold close those people who make your days more fulfilled. Then set aside the people you cannot trust, are not nice people and who take suckers from little kids. (Bad bad people). Let the good people in your life be your guiding light, and be theirs in return, no matter what.

I believe.

Sleep sweet, love life, and reach for the stars and beyond...

The sun sets on another day...

The water washes onto the shore, bringing with it the cool evening breeze that both warms the heart and chills the body. A swan swims by, oblivious to all but itself, preening in the colors that bath the sunset.

As I walked the bike path tonight at the edge of the lake I lost track of time and considered all the moments that are so sublime we often miss them. I sat on a rocker and looked out upon the water, smiled at the moment and took a few pictures to share. As I did I enjoyed the moments and remembered all the best times in my life, the easy sunsets, a walk with a friend, a moment in a park on a river, a laugh in a movie, a smile that was endless., or a series of episodes of NCIS with someone fun. These are never lost and should not be lost with anyone as those moments are the precious seconds that give us the power to face difficult times, difficult situations, and difficult people.

So as the sun sets on another day, close your eyes in the breeze for a moment, and remember all the wonderful things that made you special, and all the times that make you special, and enjoy the moment as I take a long walk alone...

Sleep sweet, love life, and live every moment, no matter how little you think it means it may be precious someday...

The sun sets on another day...

...in theory at least.

Theory is a good word. For the most part it means "the analysis of a set of facts in their relation to one another". So a theory is not necessarily true, but it is something that we can set forth to prove. In theory the sun will rise each and every day and set each and every day until the day someone forgets to pay the light bill and we are plunged into darkness. In theory this will be the best day of our lives, and so will tomorrow, and the next day, until the water heater breaks and you end up part of a Farmers Insurance commercial. In theory you will find the man or woman of your dreams and live happily ever after, until you find out they have met the man or woman of their dreams and it isn't you or find the man or woman who was not of your dreams, and they make you the happiest person in the world. In reality who knows? In theory we will get the things we have planned for, each and every day. In reality, who knows? Really, the bulk of reality is a theory until it becomes fact.

So, who cares, right? Well, as I said a lot of things are truly just a theory (Notice I did not say all as that too would be a theory), and we can't simply state with certainty very much at all until it becomes fact. When speaking from any point of view if you disagree, you should challenge, but if you open your mouth to challenge, listen and try to understand because your point of view may be a theory too, right? (It usually is as well, usually when dealing with emotions it ends up to be an un-provable theory)

So as the sun sets on another day, let's theorize we can all be happy and take a slightly easier road. Maybe, just maybe, if we are patient, listen and enjoy the moments we can take our theory and turn our happiness into a fact. It would be nice, right?

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy each and every day, you deserve it. (Which is not a theory)
