The sun sets on another day…
“A light sunset with a twist please,” was all I could ask for, and it is what I got on this less than sunny eve.
For an old man I have done a lot, seen a lot, experienced a lot. I feel I have had a full life and experienced both good and bad. I still want more. An old quote attributed to Alexander states that he wept because there were no more worlds to conquer. That is not me, I have plans and plans upon plans to take myself further and further. I want to learn more each day, and feel more than that.
Isn’t that what the world is all about? Shouldn’t we press the envelop each day and try to find the more we always want? Shouldn’t we be seeking that mountain that only we can climb or at least forge ahead where no one else seems to dare? What is it to achieve so much you can achieve no more? I do not think it exists.
So take a moment, look at the list of things you want to do, and find a way to do them. Then make a new list, and another, and another. There are lists upon lists that can be made and there should and will never be a reason to stop. Find a challenge, and go further.
Yes, there are people who never challenge themselves. There are people who try but don’t get back up, get back up, try again, and climb those mountains, succeed, and make today the best day you can possibly have, no matter what.
So as the sun sets on another day, I hope you find a challenge. I hope you take a moment and go a little further. I hope, beyond all hopes, that you make each day yours, and maybe share it with all of us for a moment. In the process, enjoy the climb, enjoy reaching a goal, and enjoy finding a new one every time.
Sleep sweet, love life, and yodelayhewhoooooo
