The sun sets on another day…
I often see posts and listen to people talking about how everyone has a story. More truthfully, everyone is a story in my mind. Each person I have met has had a story to tell, but often it was what was under the story that was even more interesting. That story is told more by actions than by words. We are all stories that are built on the web of our truths and our less than truths, and forged with the fires of our experience. Imagine the skies filled with our stories, overlapping in the evening skies, making the world a better place.
It is funny, when I first wrote this, it got dark very quickly. There are so many people who create a story and it turns out to be a complete forgery. I saved that, renamed it for the dark day at the end of the year, and want to focus on the positives. I have met so many people whoa re so quiet, and as you get to know them their story blossoms, and they become an amazing individual. I knew someone that I barely talked to for over a year, but one day we just talked for a while and I found a depth I could not have previously imagined. Hidden under the shy exterior was someone who was interesting and tried each day to make a difference.
The point is, each day is an amazing potential adventure and shouldn’t we try to make a story that people will look on later and simply go, “wow”?
I like to think so.
So as the sun sets on another day, it is my opinion we are all meant to be amazing stories, so go out there and find a passion, find a cause, find a talent, and find someone, then paint an amazing stoy of yourself that the world will be in awe of, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the sunset.
