The sun sets on another day…
You would think every day in the summer would be clear and bright here. Well, it is pretty awesome, but it has days like tonight where the cloak of clouds overtake the sun and the sunset is only seen by the cloud colors shimmering in the sky. It’s OK, we know the sunset is awesome even if we can’t see it, and we move forward each day, because that is what we need to do.
I was working on a project today as I thought about the past. It is pretty intense when you consider, or when I consider, all that has happened in my life. People have gone in and out of my life, some for good reason, some for bad. People I thought I could trust have lied, people who I did not know have supported me, things have happened for reasons, and things have happened for no good reason, and some things have happened just because.
I doubt that any of it will really matter in the future, and the things that do matter will only matter because I wanted them to matter or because I held on to things I should not have held on to. It is our responsibility in life to sometimes pay close attention to the past, and sometimes it is our duty to see past the past and move on. I know I know, it is hard, but we can hold on to the pain for only so long before we just have to let go.
Funny. I am not good at that, I have held on to things since I was 6, and still hold on to too much, but I try to let go and let vengeance leave when I can, after all, you can’t take it with you.
So as the sun sets on another day, let the past be in the past. Don’t whine about it, don’t worry about it, just let ti go. See past the past, try to understand, and in spite of life, move on and keep living. The crosses and double crosses add up, but so dot eh positives. Focus on today and making today the best day ever, then tomorrow the best day ever, and in the end, thing will be better. Let the past be the past, and enjoy your day today, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, read more, and laugh at the days gone past…
