The sun sets on another day…
A clear blue sky lead to an amazing sunset, and a more amazing moon rise. The brisk breeze making it hard to handle, but embracing nonetheless.
This weekend was a whirlwind of work and work and more work. As I was working, I took a moment to read and came up with an interesting series of ideas, that mostly come to a conclusion that we don’t know and should consider some very basic things.
- We don’t know what is going on in another persons life, so we shouldn’t assume we do.
- We don’t know about another persons past, so we shouldn’t assume it is better or worse than our own.
- We don’t know the pain another person feels, so we should assume it is just alright.
- We don’t know what makes everyone else happy, so we should just be there when they need us.
Now, I could go on all day, but we have to communicate so we can fill in some of these blanks. We have to be that person who is more than just a lump, and instead be that person who take a moment, and makes the world a better place, a more amazing place not by solving peoples problems, but by listening, feeling and being there. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I know that you cannot truly know someone without listening, or looking not fort he obvious, but for the unseen truths we all have. Look for them, and be that person that makes a difference for at least one person.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a minute, and listen. Stop talking, and listen. Stop looking at your phone, and listen. Pay attention to the unseen truths around you and find a way to be happy for yourself, and help others along the way, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day…
