The sun sets on another day…
As the sun set near the lake the sunset was unpredictable, going from colors to darkness as clouds masked the horizon. Only a few miles away the picture today was taken, where the sun told a different story. Both were true, and both were to be enjoyed, but the reality was that the sunset was awesome, as usual. It is hard to predict how the sunset will be, and even harder to bet on it, we can only hope that as we wait for the sun to set, we will enjoy the light show, and enjoy the moments together.
Wouldn’t it be nice if life was predicable? Well, I don’t think so, but a lot of people do. They want for everything to line up in neat little lines and be able to push one domino and have them all fall down into a pretty pattern. The truth is, life is messy. I know I know, it is a truth to me, but it is really more than an opinion. Life is full of a myriad of counter intuitive feelings and realities that seem to always be in conflict. It can be a little icky. It is not though.
We have to find a way to progress and not be afraid of what will happen next, but instead embrace it. Sure, the last time was not very good, or even this time is bad, but the time right now may be the most awesome time in the world, so grab on, enjoy and make it yours. Be fearless, take that chance and if you get knocked down, get back up. It is how e learn, and if the sunset isn’t great, imagine one for a moment, because somewhere, the sunset is great.
So as the sun sets on another day, life is amazing, sunsets are amazing, and they are there if you look for them. Each sunset can be beautiful or a beautiful disaster, but each is unique, and guess what, so are you. Love, laugh, live and feel every day and make each day an adventure that you will never forget, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be fearless!
