The sun sets on another day…
A moment is all it takes. I thought about so many moments as I sat watching the lightning and hearing the thunder roll by. An instant can be a microsecond, and all can change. Lit up by the lightning above.
You know, sometimes the things we think are there are changed in a lot of light. When lightning flashes it can be a real eye opener, and as we see things truly for the first time, we can feel like we see things well only to see them in a much different light when it is shined on it.
I know, I know, lightning only lasts a second, and I know, sometimes it seems that we just aren’t lit up like we should be, but in reality that is all it takes. One instant to see the truth, one instant for the light to shine, one instant and we know a little more about something, if only we can look.
Years ago I realized that sometimes those things on the surface are not as real as we think, and in that moment a light turned on. I found that often we do not see the scope of everything around us, and often, the scope of everything around us is a little in the dark. So when it is lit up, well, we see something brand new.
Yeah yeah, probably doesn’t make sense, or maybe it does.
So as the sunsets on another day, when lightning flashes, pay attention. When the light is on, look around, listen, learn. Don’t turn the light off and be unaware, see things as they really are, and find a way, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and see more…
