The sun sets on another day…
It was cool and damp, and the fog and clouds seemed to fight with the sun. For a moment I thought the sun would win tonight, it may have, it could have, but at the last minute the fog closed in and then darkness fell.
I thought about this and wrote a whole post on pain. It was a post about mental, physical, and emotional pain and how it attacks us but potentially gives us a pathway to move. It was deep, and it was sorrowful. As I wrote I stopped for a moment and simply said, “yuck”.
There is so much that goes on day to day that I hate focusing on the bad. There is enough bad in the world today, and far too many people that propagate the bad and potentially make it worse. I don’t want to be “that guy”. (Well, sometimes it is OK to be that guy, but not most of the time or all of the time, but instead a little of the time so you can let people know that you are not always in that high end mood but sometimes off a little)
So (and after that sub-textual rant) let’s focus on the positives for a moment. Rain is not terrible, the world is not awful and we have enjoyed one more amazing sunset, even if we did not see one more amazing sunset but instead just saw white clouds. This about it, even if there is not a sunset before us, we know it is there, and we know it will be here again tomorrow, filling our life with color and light and maybe, just maybe letting us see that moment in life we need to see, the moment that lets us forget the bad, and embrace the good for a second. (Or maybe even more)
So as the sun sets on another day, well, let’s enjoy ourselves, nothing more, nothing less. Take a second and let’s look at the positives each day, and set aside those other things, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and well, I hope you are having fun!
