The sun sets on another day…

The sunset is a miracle to enjoy, but so too are we. Each day we can experience the miracles of life, if we choose to do so. How can we choose to do so? How can we understand, embrace, and look at ourselves in a realistic manner, and not be influenced by our personal bias on us as a person? (Yes yes, confusing already)

It is tough. When the sun sets, it is what it is. Simply put, no matter what, the sun does exactly as it should, and rises and sets, independent of all else. Is it so hard to do similar for people (That would be us), we sometimes find it hard to be ourselves, and know ourselves for the purpose of being ourselves? (Still confusing I bet) It is not quite as easy as being the sun, since it is a giant gaseous ball floating in the center of our solar system that doesn’t have any of the hangups we do.

I suggest we look at three things (since we are human and think, feel and a host of other things that drive us away from us): 

1) Embrace our past, look at it, learn from it, and grow from it to be better each day.

2) Embrace ourselves, look inside, and see what we are now, and in the process know who we are and feel good about it.

3) Embrace our future, look forward, know where we want to be, and make it there.

Don’t get me wrong, this is tough for most. A lot of really troubled people do not even know they are troubled. A lot of really happy people don’t realize the gifts they have been given, Makes no sense does it? (Nobody said we were logical all the time, or any of the time for that matter)in the end I feel it is worth the look and we could be better. (My opinion)

So as the sun sets on another day, lets take a second, look inside, and understand who we can be, what we can be, how we can be, and in the process become better people, and find our way to happiness.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find a way to the moon and back, and the stars beyond…
