The sun sets on another day…
The sunset was awe inspiring, but there was a different shot I took for us, perhaps it is just a wave, one of many. To me it was a special wave, lit by the sunset having a power of its own.
There is a certain peace to watching the waves go by each day. Not watching it all, but watching the waves. Each wave is individual and unique, and each passing wave giving way to a new wave, soon to come. Some waves are strong and powerful, and some disappear before getting to shore. All part of some random pattern. This random pattern has hidden beauty if you only take a moment and look for it. It is there, hidden as a potential in every wave. All you have to do is focus, watch for that wave, and enjoy it.
Sometimes we get so caught up in looking at a whole scene that we tend to miss those beautiful waves coming at us. Let’s be straight, the world can be overwhelming and chaotic sometimes. Wave after wave of information can cascade around us and it is hard to know where to look, where to act, and what to think. Each day is filled with more and more, and it is difficult to juggle all of the things that come at us, so occasionally, we don’t. All I suggest is take a moment, and stop.
I know I now, I am sure someone out there is throwing a fit right now saying something about skipping responsibilities, or not planning, or a dozen other “buts”. I also know that even getting through a single day is sometimes more than difficult. Sometimes we just have to take a step back, watch the waves, and enjoy the moments we can. Those are the moments we can use to build a better day. It isn’t that tough. If we take a moment and look, there is beauty in the chaos, a special moment, a special place, or a special person will show us that beauty. After all, there is a certain peace to watching life go by. Now all you have to do is jump in and pick a wave and ride it. I kinda like the idea of riding a wave fueled by the suns fire. Sounds like a book huh?
So as the sun sets on another day, wow, there IS a lot going on in our world, but take a moment, slow down, find a little slice of peace for a moment. Maybe you can focus, watch for that one good wave, and enjoy it. Maybe just maybe, you will find that fiery wave to ride into a new place and hold on to the peace every moment, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and ride that wave…
