The sun sets on another day…
I find myself amazed each day. You may think that is easy but I have been around. I have seen life up close, and I have seen death up close. I have seen the good that people can exude, and the evil they can easily become. I have broken someone’s heart, and had my heart broken. All these things and so much more, yet still each day I am amazed.
Tonight I was watching people as music played in a local establishment and watched the people around me motivated and excited by life. They were not just in the moment, they were the moment. Some were playing games with abandon, and others were just talking, looking around, laughing and loving everything.
We are a vibrant species. We can be so full of life and if you look for it you can find it anywhere, and actually everywhere. The people tonight were not lost in fear or sadly divided states, they were there together, enjoying life, and having fun. After it is all said and done, isn’t that what we all want? To enjoy life? This simple moment tonight amazed me not because it was new or different but because it was, well, subtle and overpowering. You could not help but smile. You could not help but be engaged in everything. As the music played we clapped at the band, we laughed, and we were a little better. We were alive.
If we can all find the time, the effort, and the inner child, maybe we can all help each other up. Maybe we can laugh a little and make the world a better place by playing a few games, telling a few jokes, and looking for how we can lift each other up. Maybe it is time to look for that. I think we should all try. Don’t you?
So as the sun sets on another day, it’s easy. Let’s stop looking for the bad, and find the good. Let’s start making each other a priority. Let’s find the wisdom to rise above the mire, and the power to make each other a little better each and every day, no matter what. It will be worth it.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep on dancing…
