The sun sets on another day...

Yesterday I had a short discussion on sunsets and sunrises. The core of the conversation surrounded the idea that sunsets were an end, and sunrises a beginning so wouldn't it be more positive if this were 29,000 sunrises?

The answer is yes and no. (Of course it is)

If we want to stay positive all the time we can live in the essence of the day, and where light shines on us all the time and we know what is coming and can plan, change, and react with time to spare. Being negative, depressed or other not so happy feelings is a choice. A choice we make each and every day as we move forward into this thing called life. I would love to say I have all the answers, but each day I learn something new, each day I make a mistake, have a success, and much much more. When the sunrises, we are fresh, new, and without fear of the day. We know there are things to be done and moments to share but we do not know what these are yet, nor do we know how the day will go, if this were 29000 sunrises, we would talk about having a good day, no matter what, enjoying what is to come, no matter what, and living life to its fullest.

When I thought about the concept of 29000 sunsets it was for another reason. It was to appreciate each day as the day ends, and enjoy that wonderful slice of life that is displayed for us at the end of each day as we should appreciate both the good, and the bad, that we have received.

So as the sun seers today, as it does every day, consider what you have done today and live your night preparing for that new sunrise while enjoying the moments of the sunset.

Love life, appreciate what you have, but strive for the best so that tomorrow as the sun rises, you will be prepared for a better day and your sunset, will be amazing.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy every moment, no matter what...

 The sun sets on another day...

...but I did not see it. The rain closes in with its icy grasp and chills my heart and my soul. As I slip to the edge of despair I am suddenly warmed by my past and my future for I know that though today may be less than perfect, that sometimes life and love find a way, and someday I will know the warmth that can never be quenched and life will be good.

Sleep sweet and change the world, no matter what...

The sun sets on another day...

...but today I can only think of the sunrise. (Yes, this picture is a sunrise!)

This morning as I drove to work it was dark, as it is nearly every day I drive to work. As I drove and rounded a bend the light slowly rose in the east, and as I continued to move forward, so too did the light. It lit the skies in reddish hues and clouds became projector screens as I continued my drive. As I drove into work the sky was amazing with fluffy red and white clouds all over the horizon and I took a moment and looked out upon it all, and smiled.

Sometimes as we feel darkness closes in on us we have to look for the light. Often it is difficult to see, this morning I was given a gift of an amazing sunrise as perhaps I have an amazing sunrise in life. It is not necessarily one that I made, but one that I was given. Perhaps you too need to consider that the darkness can be dispelled by the light, and as you drive through the darkness, remember there is a light waiting just around the corner, don't stop, strive for it, and it will happen.

Sleep sweet, enjoy life, and look at the same star as someone special...

You know sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. Peter Paul Almond Joy's got nuts....

An odd start eh? There are some days you just have to answer everything with humor, today after politics and silliness I just had to laugh a little and say life sometimes throws you a curve ball, so make lemonade. I was sent a super picture today, and that made me smile too. So tonight if you are thinking about how life has thrown you a curve ball, take a second and laugh with me, then make lemonade!

Have an amazing night!
