The sun sets on another day…
I considered calling this post intersecting circles. I consider a lot of things. Today was a day when the sunset was early and the clouds were earlier. It made me thing of the chords that measure intersecting circles in life as the clouds above swirled above.
People are interesting all over. They come and go into our lives like leaves on a tree, some hold fast, some fall off and are gone, and some just stick around forever. (Well, on pine trees they do) It is amazing to me to consider the number of people who have come in and out of my life over the years, the number that have touched me in some way, and the number I have felt were important in my life. Our lives were a series of circles, and we intersected at times making us better people, and rarely worse.
No matter how you approach those amazing concentric circles, we always have to remember that good or bad, we learn from everyone we meet. That makes it good! We need to realize that people build up their circles with people that are like minded or that appeal to them in some way, and people remove from their circles, well, for lots of reasons. We must hold on to the good as it is easy to feel the bad close in on us, and we must find a way each and every day to make our chords not let go those people who are meaningful in our lives.
I am not perfect. I have watched people walk in and out of my life. I have fought hard for some, not hard enough for others. In the end I sometimes trusted too little, and sometimes trusted too much but always had what I felt were good intentions. I hope each of you had the best intentions in the world as you experienced the amazing people in your life.
So as the sun sets on another day, remember how important you are, and how special other people are, and find a way to be happy each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day….
