The sun sets on another day…
Tonight is I drive and wonder about my destination and my ability to arrive at my destination I consider how life is always an adventure. There are a lot of people in the world that think that anything bad that happens is a reason to feel intense negative emotions. There are a lot of people that have a difficult time handling adversity, conflict, or any other issue that is outside the norm. I would like to think that the best way to handle adversity, conflict, or really anything else in the world is by staying positive and taking it in stride as we find our way together. We have an opportunity each and every day to be the best that we can possibly be. We have an opportunity every day to face anything that is tossed our way as positively as we can.
Now I know there are exceptions. I have seen the news and cancer and other major issues can be hard to overcome or explain away. All I can say for certain is that people that maintain a positive attitude always seem to do better and always seem to feel better in the end.
I have a friend that faced the worst of the worst. She faced cancer and fear and the dozen other things but she overcame it. She still wonders each day what tomorrow may bring but I know her as one of the most positive and endearing people that most people can ever see or meet.
I also know many people that stub their toes and want to destroy the world. That hangnail or turning wrong on a street could mean annihilation if they had a death ray. Those people that have never learned how unimportant little things are and how to maintain that positive attitude going forward often end up in difficult situations. They drive people away and eventually find a way into loneliness. That’s no fun.
I am hopeful each and every day that everyone will take a moment and consider that a positive life is usually a better life. I am hopeful each and every day that taking some difficult things in stride is better for us as a whole. I guess you could say I am hopeful. (I must be goofy huh?)
So as the sun sets on another day let’s take a second and not let those things in our lives that seem so overwhelming, overwhelm us. Let’s take a second and look for the positive in everything we do. Let’s take a second and enjoy every moment of life then we can. I say it often when I meet people and they ask how I am, “I am good (great or any other massive bit of positive hoopla) anything less is a waste of time”. I think we can all be in that same place if we just try, and then maybe the world will be a better place.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be patient always….
