The sun sets on another day…
As I drove back to the west the brilliant sun was swallowed by a giant cloud bank, perhaps I should have turned around but I kept going around not because of the clouds, but in spite of them.
I was laughing hard today as I considered how so many people want to know exactly what is coming their way all the time. Many see every moment as an “I need to know moment, so much so that before they open an egg, they wish the shell was glass so they could see what was inside.
The world doesn’t work that way and I think it is good.
Whether it is an “I want to know my present before it is given to me” or anything else, the excitement of getting there and the anticipation of not knowing seems to be gone. Tomorrow is a new day and we will never know what is coming to us tomorrow, but, we can take it as it comes and enjoy it no matter what.
I know, sometimes that is tough, but maybe we need to be happy knowing we can enjoy things, and in the process enjoy them. It may not make sense, but it is often true.
So as the sun sets on another day, consider that each day is a gift, and that’s why they call it the present. (Oh I never really liked that pun). Maybe though it is accurate, and maybe we should just enjoy the good, the bad, and the middle of the road and laugh a little at what comes, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and here it comes again…
