The sun sets on another day….
Even though I know the sunset is there when I cannot see it and there when I cannot feel it I still think about it as though the sun were falling right in front of me. Yes I missed the sunset but I know that sunset is there behind the clouds in the depths of a crimson sky.
We all think about people from our past from time to time. This does not mean we are dwelling in the past but instead perhaps appreciating the past or learning from it as we should. I know that as I look to the past I see a great many people that made my life more complete. It is not that I have an incomplete life in any way it is just that some people came into my life when I needed them most and some people touched my life in a positive way that I can never forget.
Sure some endings are tough. Sure some endings hurt like hell. In reality though if you set aside the outliers and think of the times between you will realize that it’s not all that bad. In fact a lot of relationships in my past had extreme high points that changed my view on the world.
All relationships are tough in some way. Whether friendship or something more sometimes communication can lead to difficulties. On that flip side though sometimes communication can lead to amazing moments that will never be forgotten. My point in this rather healthy post is that we should pay attention to the high side and be aware of the sides that were less than perfect but not dwell on them. Miscommunication can be difficult but we need to focus on the positives that made our days so special. Ends and beginnings can be tough, but tough is OK if it makes us better.
How do you feel? Do you or did you have those relationships that were so special even the negatives could not bring them down? Or do you have relationships but you just want to run screaming from? Are your friends somewhere past perfect? Or do you set aside friends from time to time and run screaming from the room?
No matter how you slice it, cherish them all because they are defining you each and every day. Cherish the time, and cherish what you learn.
So as the sun sets on another day, relationships are super, and so are you. Friends make the world go round, and love makes us all see the world in a better way. Embrace it, enjoy it, and make it yours each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and wowsers…
