The sun sets on another day…
Sunset is sublime as the clouds roll in for yet another rainy eve. Tomorrow may be nice, but today ends with a little water, and the tinkle of raindrops on the eves.
We live in a world of change, and today is more prevalent as a time when change is all over, all upon us, always affecting us. We have built roles in companies around change that cannot keep up with the changes happening now. Some people are in the middle, and some are in the depth of despair as change washes over them. Set it aside. there is always hope.
Today I spoke to a fantastic person starting a new position. They were filled with exuberance and near passion approaching their new position. As we spoke I realized that this is how we should approach change. This person had set aside the past and fully embraced a new future filled with hope, with dreams, and with a pathway to a new life. they had gone so far to change their very appearance, and as they did they became a role model we should all pay attention to each day. Even when we are faced with change, the past is the past, the future is not yet here.
As I ended the call I was reminded of something I have written over and over. Do not whine about the past, it is gone. Do not pine over the future, it is not yet here. Instead define yourself in the present and make yourself the best person you can be. This is what I saw today.
So as the sun sets on another day, it is a good day for change. It is a good day to go a little further and become the best you can be. Define yourself and be the person I met today, not living in the past or the future, but defining a present that will build a future, and remember a past as a guide. Define yourself the best you can each day and be that person that embraces change and becomes change each day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh the night away…
