The sun sets on another day…
The sunset was striking, but I could not stop and get the picture. It will remain in my mind for all time.
I am always amazed by people. They come in all shapes, all sizes, and all demeanor. Some are nice, some are not so nice. Some are super nice, and some, well they seem nice until you are out of the room. So it goes, a million types of people, and a million ways to see them.
I was thinking today about all the people who have given so much of their lives and made so many people happy. Then I thought of all the people who gave me the gift of friendship, and gave me happiness, and excitement, and serenity, and more. It was a peaceful series of thoughts. Then a little darkness crept in, and those that wronged me came out, and it was a dark place for a second. Finally I set it aside and realized, it was not horrible. Even though some people had been snakes on the water, the good times far outweighed the bad, and better, the lesson made me feel better about life.
No I am not saying go out and find people to treat you poorly, but sometimes the good is far better, and if you take a moment, you can find good in most anything. Even the worst has a light in it somewhere, well, most of the time. Don’t be overwhelmed by fear, instead become the fearsome person that overcomes all fear, be that person that leaves fear to the side and lives life to its fullest.
So as the sun sets on another day, well, be happy. That’s a good way of being. Find the silver lining that no one else seems to see. Make that silver lining a lining you see, and let the bad stuff, lies, hurtful words, or worse, and just set them aside. I know, it is tough, boy do I know, but in the end, it will help you find the peace you deserve. Hold onto that peace, the love, and more, no matter what. (and watch out for the snakes next time)
Sleep sweet, love to the moon and back, and make it last forever…
