The sun sets on another day…
What is it like to be a child? Do you remember? Do you remember being able to see more than what was in the room, to see beyond and realize that there were no limits in the world. When you were young, do you remember being able to watch the sunset and see the colors not as just a color, but as an adventure ready to be explored? It was all there, for all of us.
In the movie “Paternity” Burt Reynolds explains why he wants a child. He tells of another child who does amazing tricks, seeming to defy gravity and offers that statement that the only reason he can do them, is because he does not know about gravity or that it exists. His goal of course, to be there when the child learns about gravity.
I offer a slightly different skew. Wouldn’t it be better if we removed our limits and raised ourselves to the next level. Wouldn’t it be better if we took away our limits.
I talk to a lot of people, and as I do I learn that so many are afraid to move forward because of the “what if”. Their gravity holds them to what they think is holding them. Is it? Or is what holds you down simply what you put in your mind to hold you down. It is an interesting consideration. Maybe we need to set aside out limits for a moment and try to be the best we possibly can be, perhaps that is when we become limitless. When we are so lost in the moment that we forget our limits, and become more.
So as the sun sets on another day, gravity is a pain in the bottom, well, if you are ice skating. We need to let go of our doubts and fears and find a way to something more direct. We need to make the world a better place, a place where we can be truly more than we thought we could be, where we can be limitless. Make that world in your mind, then find a way to make it real. Make the best picture you can, and take it further, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live it…
