The sun sets on another day…
You know, we each have good days, bad days and indifferent days depending on how we react to them. Sometimes life hands us more than we think we can handle, but we find a way. Sometimes life is just not too exciting, but we handle that as well. Sometimes life is super, and we find our way to enjoy that as well. We have to remember in every situation that we are not along and act base don how we can: When we are having a good day, spread the good, when we are having a bad day, try to pick ourselves up and look for the positives that are out there, and when our day is not as good as we want it to be, but not bad, well, find a way to enjoy that as well.
The key in all of this is attitude. We can keep a positive attitude in anything,and find a way to move past nearly any obstacle if only we look for the silver lining and keep a reasonable sense of humor.
So today, I stopped by a place to get food and ordered a pasty (which was really good), actually a few of them for some others. Anyway, the person behind the counter was trying to be happy but it was obvious something was bothering them. I asked them if they were OK, and they nodded a little, not negative but not positive to which I asked, a relatively funny question about resolving the issue. This person cocked their head and started giggling, laughed, and smiled and said I made their day. Really I did not do much except show them a way to not pay attention to the bad, and see it as an opportunity to laugh, well, maybe at me.
So let’s consider, we need to rely on ourselves, but maybe, just maybe when we are having a good day, we need to spread the positive energy around. If we are having a bad day, maybe we need to listen to the silly person across the counter from us for a second and get a laugh.
So as the sun sets on another day, only you are responsible for you. No matter how hard you try to rationalize your situation it is you that are at the center, so make it a positive center and never a negative one, or at least very rarely. In that, maybe you will always have a terrific day, and in the process enjoy your sunsets as much as I do, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and try a pasty, they are yummy!
