The sun sets on another day…
Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places. Sometimes inspiration is from a positive source. Sometimes inspiration is from a not so positive source Perhaps it is better to say the inspiration is from a source and it does not matter if that source is positive or negative. It matters that it is an inspiration.
I talk a lot about listening. At least I write here a lot about listening. I write hear a lot about talking to people. I write about staying positive, no matter what. I write about focusing on the today and not the future or the past. All of these things I believe and all of these things I try and have tried to live.
Perhaps we all try to live the best that we can. At least most of us do. I find that there are very few people who think they are living a bad life as most think that what they are doing, right or wrong, is what is right for them. After all who can know better what is right for them than them. Of course there are exceptions. There are those people that cannot necessarily know what’s best for them because they are either too close to their issues or too far away. For those people they need to see past themselves. They need to get the help that they can and find people to help them forward. They also have to realize that at the end of the tunnel the choices are always theirs. again, it is not anyone’s choice but theirs.
My father wrote a long time on his screensaver “if it is going to be it’s up to me”. This is always true when you think about yourself or those things around you. We all must find a way to do right by ourselves all the time as we help the things around us, and take the responsibility to do more, and be more.
At the same time I am reminded of the movie Crocodile Dundee in which one of the main characters is going to see a “head shrinker”. Crocodile Dundee does not understand this and asks simply “don’t they have mates?” His statement is friends should be able to help. Look to friends when you need them, they can open your eyes as positively as anyone else.
I realize this is a somewhat odd post for me but I felt that I needed to put it out here after working on a website today. There are always times we need help. There are other times that we may not need help. In the end it is up to us to decide the best choices for us while realizing that the choices for us are truly our choices and belong to no one else.
So as the sun sets on another day if your day is great make it greater. If your day is less than great try to raise it up. If you need help find the help you need. If you don’t need help make sure you make your choices, make them the best that you can, and be there for those that need help. Remember in the end “no matter where you go there you are” no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and the world is what you make it…
