Do over!

The sun sets on another day…

It is coming up on a year since I reset the site and began writing each and every day. Each day a thought, a feeling, a word, and of course a picture. Usually about a little of everything, and usually a picture of the sunset.

What is missing and you do not see is the nearly 30 discarded posts that I decided were not to be because of a variety of reasons. Sometimes the darkness closed in and there was a treatise on problems: ick. Sometimes there was a start that just got too personal, either with me or someone else: could be scary. Sometimes I considered the people and thought it would point out one person or another: don’t need that. Tonight it was about silence and the interactions between so many people: I decided no. 

The point is, each and every day there is a positive we can grab onto and show the world and that positive is inside of us. I know there are things about me that would be like the episode of Tweety where he got so worked up and said “I scared meself”, it is part of me. I know that when I think of my father and so many other things that there could be despair that would consume the world if it was not held in check. I do not let those things and a myriad of others, control me, not now, not ever. I choose the beauty of the sunset, the edge of reason, the power of patience, and the strength of self each and every day. I hope you can as well and when you see that overwhelming whatever-it-is coming at you that you can pull back, overcome, and know the world is a better place because you are in it. Somewhere in that formula you have the power to change the world, each and every day. Somewhere inside, we all can be better than we ever thought we were.

So as the sun sets on another day, believe. Not just in the sunset, but believe in the happiness, the passion, the power of love, and mostly believe in you, no matter what you are special and no one can take that away from you. So as I do yet another do over, I hope I have found the high road, and found a way for you to smile for a moment, laugh for a moment more, and see a pretty picture.

Sleep sweet, love life, and have an amazing night that is a prelude to a more amazing sunrise tomorrow…
