The sun sets on another day…
Ha! Here I thought I was alone in a park to watch the sunset and still I watched it with someone.
The park was dark except for the sunset and I watched as I drove in to near desolation. It was not horrible as I am used to being alone, but as I walked the short distance to the beach I could only say there was nothing there. I heard the trees rustle, the wind blow, and scurrying leaves everywhere, but nothing stood out.
So i stood on the deck, and realized I was watching the sunset with another. A bit smaller, but just as interested in either me or the sunset far away. We watched for a few moments together until I heard a voice say what a beautiful sunset it was, as a woman and her dog walked by, and then as I turned, I was alone again. Well, except for the flocks of birds passing back and forth across the sky.
Sometimes it is when we are alone that we realize that life is pretty special. Some see it as difficult, but it is not, it is only a few moments where we can truly know ourselves. I suggest we take those moments and learn who we are and make each moment the special moment it should be. Only then can we really be great for others, only after we know ourselves.
So as the sun sets on another day, I bet you like my little friend, and I hope you can take a moment and enjoy the sunset, and the moments in between. Every day is amazing if you want it to be, so make today the most amazing, and enjoy it like it was the last.
Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond…
