The sun sets on another day…
The day was covered in fog, then rain, then lightning while thunder slammed the windows, then fog again, and who knows what will be next. Another door will open, another challenge will be found.
To me it is amazing how many faces the world gives us. I have heard the same joke many places I live, “don’t like the weather, wait a few minutes and it will change” and it seems to be true, well, everywhere. Except maybe San Diego, but that is another story. The world seems to want to give a different face all the time, and it is our job to adapt and find a way to become a part of the landscape, enjoying whatever we are given, or finding a way to overcome it.
So who cares, besides me that is?
Well, we are pretty much measured by what we overcome. I think we can agree on that. So each day in this wild weather we become more. We become stronger, we become more experienced, we become ready for more, and in the process we become better people.
Sometimes I wish it were different, but the only way to become really good at something is to face the bad of something. The only way to succeed is still to fail. Let’s make sure that sinks in, the only way to succeed is still to fail. I know, I know, that sucks in itself. People are so afraid of failing, but as they fail they learn important lessons about themselves, what they want, what they don’t want, and how they want to reach for more. Truly our difficult weather defines us more than our successes, and perhaps it is that weather that makes a good person. It is worth the thought.
So as the sun sets on another day, today is a lot of things we don’t want normally, but perhaps today is also a lot of things that makes us a better person. Perhaps today will define us one day and in the process, we will understand a little more because of a cold misty day. In the end, we all find our way through adversity to a lot more. Perhaps tomorrow will be bright sunny and warm, and we will enjoy that too!
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep moving forward…
