The sun sets on another day...

Last night I had a dream, it was not unpleasant, nor was it pleasant. It was very matter of fact, a life presented before me, with a narrative places on key points of my life. In my dream I was talking to an embodiment, but in reality it was more likely my brain talking to my brain. The essence of the dream was why things have happened the way they did, and should they have happened this way.

As we all walk through the 29000 or so sunsets we have in this life many of us ask the same question. The essence of the question if often "what if" but sometimes it may be "why" or "why not". Perhaps we are not always asking the right question, perhaps the question should be "did we do the things we wanted to do?" Or maybe it should be "Did we do the things we needed to do?" Quotes abound for want versus need. Differences between a winner and loser, a success and a failure about, but in my opinion the answer is somewhere in between. Did we do what we needed to do and did we want to do it? In other words, was it worthwhile and did we enjoy the moment? Did you do something today that was necessary, and in the process enjoy the moment? Will you tomorrow? Yesterday? Isn't part of life doing the right thing and another part enjoying what you do, perhaps in balance?

It is worth considering at least.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider the balance in your life, and the life in your balance, and make sure they align with who you are and where you want to be. Don't burn bridges made of wood you may need, and don't build bridges with rotten wood.

Now that I have been cryptic I will consider the small portly man with the yellow shirt, and enjoy my night.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make every day a day you can be proud of, at least in some way...

The sun sets on another day...

The breeze blows now as the night has closed in, embers of the eve light the night sky with the soft fires of the fading twilight, in the moment i rest easy and feel the peace settle over me, for i know that in every night there is the promise of a new day.

Ever notice how sometimes you really have to make a boo boo to find your way. Recently I finished my first novel and continue to work on the second in the series. I was not aware that the company that publishes for you can block your ad campaign, even though they approved it all and pre-screened. Now I know. So it is with much excitement I release my former book under a new name that cannot be misconstrued in our very correct society. In my failure I have found a new pathway and I trust those people who have guided me, to keep me honest and moving forward.

So too should we all move forward, knowing we could have issues, but knowing there are those who will be there for us and help us overcome them. So start your first book, make sure your life is where you want it and do the things you think you should knowing that if you fall, there are those who will catch you and accept you, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and do it, whatever it is...

The sun sets on another day...

The warmth of the waves of light rained down upon us, showing us a pathway to the west to follow until we reached our destination.

Sometimes we get lost when we are doing things, and we just need a flare from a good source to move us forward. There are so many good sources. These include friends, relatives, churches, organizations, and sometimes people who honestly just want to help. The point is we don't always have the sun in the west driving us to a destination and sometimes need help. It is up to us to reach out and ask for the help we need and listen when the help comes.

So as the sun sets on another day, when darkness comes a callin, be callin fer help, and someone will be shooting a flare, no matter what...

Sleep sweet, enjoy life, and pray every once in a while, it does us good...

The sun sets on another day...

The cool breeze blew across the lake bringing with it the pungent aromas of a dozen memories, and in the process, both uplifting and chilling my soul with their embrace.

I was looking through a lot of old posts and came across a list of words to live by in my text files. Among them was "You are what you do. Not what you say." and it called to me for today.

We hear a lot of statements about how we should be and never are they more evident than during election times. As we look at people and what they are talking about we also need to look closely at what they have done, not just what they say they have done, but truly what they have achieved that is truly verifiable, and not in contention. (Because people always agree on what is real and what is not, right? (lol) We should expect our lives to be remembered as well by what we have done, not just what we have said we have done, and by something that we feel good about. (After all, we all know about the Nobel prive, but do we really all know where the money came from?)

So as you are considering people, consider what they have done as much or more than their words, and don't get lost in the rhetoric. By that same token, be certain you are paying attention to what you are saying, and delivering what you say if possible, and if not, communicating such.

So as the sun sets on another day, say what you mean to do, and do what you said, and sometimes, just do something great without saying, that too will be remembered.

Sleep sweet, love what you do, and do it...
