The sun sets on another day…
The days are shifting a little at a time. What was once 9:30 for a sunset is now far earlier, and the darkness seems to fold in as fall approaches. Still, even during the shifting the sunrise and sunset are there, adding light and life to our days of we only let them.
A lot in our lives shifts constantly. I was torn as I thought about this as originally my analogy was the shifting sands, and then it became more focused on shifting gears, then back to shifting sands, then shifting mindsets, so I decided to go back to the beach for a moment. I know, confusing.
I am more than a little in awe at how we can so easily walk across the beach. If you think about it each step the ground moves beneath us and we have to adapt rapidly lest we fall. By the same token we are all metaphorically walking on sand daily. Everything is constantly shifting, and we need to ask ourselves are we standing and adapting, or are we slipping and falling in our shifting sands.
I personally think I do ok. Many of the people I know do well, but sometimes people get lots in the shifting sands and have a hard time getting back up. In my opinion this all becomes easier if we just take the time to realize we sometimes need to look around, determine where we are, and then find our way to stand up and keep going. I think the world would be a little better if we could do that a little more, and strop trying to pull people down in the sand with us.
Hmmm, I like it.
So as the sun sets on another day, it is easy to fall, and in times where the sand is shift, just as easy to stay down. Don’t do it, stand up, stand proud and lift others with you. As you do remember you can do anything if you try. Do not try, do, and as you do so, enjoy your day, every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep on keeping on…
