The sun sets on another day…
The sunset was brilliant and amazing, and I was sitting at work watching it go down. Still, I got to enjoy the moment, and smile for a second as the light played across the sky
I was a little amazed when I realized I had never written with this title before. It is one of my favorite lines from all movies, this one being from Blade Runner. It is not often that you can come up with something as iconic, but it is a true statement, if we do not touch people, when we are gone all the things we have done are like tears in the rain.
I will pause here for a moment as you shift uncomfortably in your seat wondering where I am going and how I can possibly be positive with this post.
See, the idea is easy. From a realistic perspective we are not in this world alone. In fact, last time I checked there are a lot of people with us. Somewhere in it all we need to realize that we have to communicate better, we have to interact, and we have to be more than just someone working for a few baubles. Somewhere we have to make a difference.
Nope, not easy, but worth it. Spend time talking to your kids when they are young, work you way up, and be there when they need you when you get older. I know it seems like it is not a big deal, it is. Our friends, our children, they are the future, and we can share with them, grow with them, help them grow, and help them see all that we have seen.
Not exactly what you thought eh? Today is the day you can make a difference. Be more to the people around you, not a little but a lot. Make the world yours, make it a better place, and find your way to being more, maybe like rocks in the rain. (Just kidding)
So, as the sun sets on another day, take a minute and smile. Take a minute to laugh, take a minute and tell someone how you feel, but take a minute. It will be worth it, and it will make the world a better place, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love often, and maybe a little more…
