The sun sets on another day…
As I arrived at the beach the car next to me noted the sunset may be less than spectacular. It was golden, and becoming pink and red, and calm, very calm. To understand you must know the lake is rarely as calm as it was today. True it happens, but often Lake Michigan has waves that are awe inspiring and formidable. Tonight it was calm.
As I took a series of pictures I decided to fly the drone as well, and the world opened up. It was calm, and cool, and stunning, and maybe a little more. There was a peace in the air that reminded me of how calm life can be, and if you take a moment, you can understand how beauty is born, and consider that in spite of the turmoil all around us, that we all need a little calm.
You know, we sometimes are always looking for conflict. If you disagree, well, that is my opinion and you are more than allowed to have yours. I in fact encourage it. Let’s calm ourselves though and not argue our opinions, but instead enjoy them. We are allowed our diversity and no one has the right to say another person is wrong in the realm of opinion. Why? Because it is opinion. Facts are different, but we still can remain calm. In this world we need to find the calm at the center of our souls,a nd stop and enjoy the moments and beyond, and just be at peace for a few.
I have opinions about a lot of things, and look for facts about a lot of things, and have a lot of facts floating around, but I truly want to understand more than I want to argue when it comes to opinion because it builds diversity, and allows me to stay calm, perhaps, just perhaps, we all should listen a little more, be calm, and enjoy our day. As we do, let’s find days like this, and just enjoy the sunset.
So as the sun sets on another day, there will always be things that are difficult. There will always be conflict, but find your center, find your calm, and make it real for you. Then enjoy the moments and make the best of everything, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond…
