The sun sets on another day…
I am sometimes fascinated by how in depth a simple commercial can inspire us, invoke emotions or actually invoke change.
I was always crazy about the Budweiser commercial with the puppy. It was an awesome idea for a puppy and a Clydesdale to become friends. The Folgers commercials always seem to be great around Christmas, and now there is a chocolate commercial that drives a point home I try to show each and every day. See it here. (This is a long version)
When I began 29000sunsets in 2010 it was to a point out an obvious fact of life: it is finite.
If we only had 29000sunsets and that number was counting down, perhaps we would approach each day more effectively as we would know tomorrow is a gift. The commercial takes it a little further and walks through a single day from birth to the end. The question, what if, cannot be more pointed here.
Who cares, right? The question is, what are you doing with your day to make it be best day ever? How are you changing the world or at least making the world a fun place to be? Are you living life so fully that everyone will know the positives you brought to the world?
I for one hope so. According to stats, there are a lot of people who read here, some daily, some weekly, some a little less. I feel each person has the chance to make every day the absolutely best day it can be, no matter what. Is that such a bad thought, that we can all be super happy and excited about life?
So as the sun set son another day, just live today like it is your last day, and tomorrow, and the next, and pretty soon your habit will be to be the best person you can be, every day. A good choice!
Sleep sweet, keep on living, and enjoy every moment…
