Hot dogs and philosophy…

The sun sets on another day…

Sometimes we need to be reminded of words to live by. This morning I was getting ready for another exciting day and I stopped for a moment to watch a movie I had not watched in quite some time. In the movie there was a riddle, “Why do hot dogs come in packs of 10, and buns in packs of 8?”. It rang funny to me as I suddenly remembered the answer and later in the movie confirmed I was right (No, I did not look it up, I was enjoying the movie). 

As we move on in life we sometimes forget all the things we have to be thankful for, and all of the moments we should hold onto, and all of the hot dogs we need to eat. (Yum). Sometimes we are so caught up in what we think that we don’t go further and see what is real, and why we should take a breath and be thankful. In each moment we have a choice to be up or down, positive or negative, thrilled or disappointed, good, or bad. It is these moments that define who we are as there is really rarely a reason for the negativity as it is all of our own creation. Even at our worst we are the source of what we are, and we are the source of what we can become. If we decimate ourselves only we can rebuild ourselves, but it is all up to us. (umm, try to not decimate yourself)

I know it is easier to point fingers at situations or people, at least a lot of people seem to think so, but we have the ability to move beyond, and to starting blaming ourselves for how darn good we have it. Each day is a gift, and how you spend that gift makes your life what it is, nothing more, and nothing less.

So as the sun sets on another day, realize the gift you have been given, realize that every moment is a moment that can be cherished, and if things are bad, only you have the opportunity to positively turn it around. Remember that each and every moment you guide your life, and the decisions you make either move it forward, or take it backwards. Remember why hot dogs come sin packs of 10, and buns packs of 8, because you never know what life is going to give you, and at least you will have extra hot dogs.

Sleep sweet, cherish your moments, and love life, no matter what…
