The sun sets on another day…
I rushed to see the sunset, and there it was. Minutes to sunset became moments to the actual sun setting. The clouds slowly absorbed the light, but I was there and felt good about it.
Last night I wrote about cracked corn. It was a funny post to me because it was about the past, about people who I trusted betraying me, and worse. It was about toxic environments I know from others, and little thoughts that run around in my head all the time. It was about a lot of things, and today I was there again, with negativity all around, and suddenly I felt at peace.
I remember an old issue of XMen where the XMen were fighting the imperial guard as a the end of the world was released. As part of the end of the world a guardian was created, and if defeated there would be another 10 times greater in power until the fighting force would be eliminated. If you think about it, the trap was simple, keep getting bigger until you win, but in the comic the XMen got past them into the crystal, and the whole teams was still ready to fight until they were told, “The guardian has no power here, we are inside.”
This is how I felt today. As a switch was flipped suddenly there was no power for any of the negativity. It had no place because I was past all of it. I was inside. I am not in any way saying this is easy, I am however saying that there are possibilities for setting aside the frustrations, and seeing where things can go. There are possibilities for making negativity have no power over you, ever. Grab on and let go. Let go of all the negatives in favor of a little more, and stop and enjoy the day.
I expect the next few days I am around I will have good fun, and it will be a bunch of positives, not because there are positives for me, but because I will make them positive.
So as the sun sets on another day, pass those massive guardians keeping you from happiness, defeat the inner demons keeping you from smiling and instead let go, be happy, and find a little peace, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and live it all the time!
