The sun sets on another day…
As the sun set this evening I watched it on a tiny screen. High in the air, my camera pointed to the west and watched the sun transition to darkness. I thought a lot about how sometimes you just have to consider a higher view before you make a choice, and how sometimes life can be amazing when you do so.
It is funny when you think about how some people see the world from such a tiny point of view. They answer questions for people based on how they see the world, oblivious to the fact that others may not see the world the same way. We all see the world based on where we are standing and how the world presents itself to us, and by the past as well, but we need to be mindful that no matter who we are, we can’t know everything.
I have always said that people who speak in absolutes must be selling insurance, but there have been time I have used absolutes in speaking. I am wrong to do this. You can only speak to your view of the world and this is why many times I say, “In my opinion”. As such, in my opinion, we need to be more forgiving, and more positive when dealing with people because you really can’t know where they have come from unless you have walked in their shoes.
Sounds pretty right I think.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a higher view. Look at the world from a larger perspective and never assume you know everything that is going on. In the end, it will give you a better view of the world and all the people in it. Live for a positive day, and you will have one. Be the one who sets the standard for a positive day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day!
