The sun sets on another day…
I am reminded of so many poems and movies tonight after a discussion about the core of us all. Coming to the top of my mind is the Breakfast Club that notes all of the things that actually make us who we are in life and we are actually all of those. It is deeper than that, for inside of us all is the capacity for good, and the capacity for not so good.
There are many things in my life that I am proud of, and some I am not proud of, but at the core of it all, I am me and you are you. You are the sum of your experience and something a little bot more. After all, we cannot be sure who or what we are until we are measured as who or what we are by the myriad of intense issues we face each day in life.
When happy do we strive for more, or do we patiently wait for something to happen. In the best of times do we see them as the best of times, or do we take them for granted. When threatened do we wait quietly or use the things we know to destroy the threat. All of these types of items show our true character.
I would like to hope our true character is something that can rise to the high path always, and find the light and love we feel inside and make it our own. I would hope that we always find a way to smile and laugh, even when we shouldn’t, and dance in the rain as necessary, to make life a better place.
So as the sun sets on another day, remember inside of us all is the best person we can be, and the not so good person we can be, and we make the decision each day to rise above, and make our goal the best (well we should) and be an example for what is positive in life. Be that person who people always say takes a high road, or at least most of the time.
Sleep sweet, love life, and dance like no one is watching…
