The sun sets on another day…
Sometimes it is a series of little things that light up your life. Sometimes it is more.
Tonight as I watched a movie with friends I laughed a little. Well, I actually laughed a lot. The movie was exciting, full of action, and full of little lessons.As movies go it was not one trying to teach an overarching life lesson, but it had moments where it was focusing on ideas we all should pay attention to, and moments that were like cotton candy, sweet, satisfying and gone in a matter of seconds.
As I left the theater I thought about morning iced tea. Yes, I know it is a little silly, but I used to get iced tea every morning from McDonald’s, and sometimes it was sweet, and sometimes not. You see, I ordered the same thing every time, but often as I ordered I would get what I ordered, and occasionally, I would not. What I did next could have been make a big deal out of it, but I didn’t. I enjoy both sweet and unsweet tea, so I just went with it, enjoyed the tea, and laughed a little at the day.
Yeah, you may say bad service, but it wasn’t. It was a mistake that I could live with and that was not of any real consequence. Sometimes it showed me how sweet life was, sometimes life was just plain.
Funny huh? What’s my point? Life gives you ups and downs all the time. How you handle them is up to you. You can thrash about and go a little crazy, or you can go with the flow, and enjoy it, even if its not exactly what you wanted. Pretty easy thought, like cotton candy, right?
So as the sun sets on another day, what did you order? Well, unless what you got was less than palatable you may just get to enjoy it all. Take your time, enjoy your moments however they are served, and laugh a little, it seems to help. In the end the world can be yours if you let it.
Sleep sweet, love in a powerful way, and love to the moon and back…
