The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was, and it was beautiful even though I could not see it. I felt the light fade from the sky and it was earlier than normal, or was it? In the end, the sunset sets its own time, and we have no choice but to enjoy it.
There was a song once about time slipping into the future. As I look out upon the day I agree, and see that time is always passing, passing into the future and becoming the past. It saddens me to think of all the people that miss the moments, and let time slip into the future and the past, not realizing the gift they have in today. It will probably sound horrible but to me the word that should be outlawed is often “No”. Why? Because in telling yourself no you are putting off a moment that may just slip into the future, you are letting it slip by.
Now I am not advocating anything bad, but there are things you can avoid saying no to. If it makes you happy and does not hurt anyone else, no may not be the best response, no may be keeping you from reaching your potential. No, may be holding you back.
I know, I know, how can you tell?
Well, I am sure you can. I am sure you can see the difference between the positives that are all around us, and those things that could become negatives. I am sure you know when to say “no” and when not to say “no”, you know? Just take a moment, and don’t miss the roller coaster you wanted to ride. See the movie, read the book, laugh a little, even cry a little, but in the end find a way to live life to the best point you can.
So as the sun sets on another day, I am ahead in Nanowrimo and will continue to push, why? Because I won’t say no to telling the stories in my head, and because its fun, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, read more, and know when no is not the right word…
