The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was, well, wow. As I drove down I65 on a seemingly never ending journey the sun filled the evening sky. I was near some limestone hills as I drove and the sky came in and out of view until light became colors, and colors became the crisp edge of night. It was a great view.

I stopped on my drive today at a nondescript location in the middle of nowhere and got chicken strips. I ended up talking to one of the staff while I waited and said I was driving south, a long way away. The smile was instant and I was told about plans to travel and wanting to meet someone just south of where I was going.

As usual I said, “Get ready, let’s go” and their eyes were lit up for a few more moments until they looked around, scanned their work. The response was, “I will someday” The light was gone, we laughed for a few more minutes and my order came up and I once again headed south.

I thought about the for a while as I drove. How many times do we wait for tomorrow? How many times is there a dream that is on hold for the right time? How many times do we set aside something we want to do, for something we think we have to do.

Don’t get me wrong, the ethics to work and make things happen are necessary. I am proud of everyone who get the job done, but there is a balance that is necessary and sometimes you just have to go for it, and change the world, not a little, a lot. Sometimes you have to have an adventure.

On my drive today I stopped 4 times just for 4 or to get food, take a walk, and just enjoy myself. In my life I have stopped far more as I traveled the world, interacted with people everywhere, and saw what was there, and a lot more. Still, every day I wonder what adventure will come, and what will be the next fun bit of excitement around the next corner. The world is a big place, and people are an amazing part of it.

Is it time for you to go on an adventure? Why wait? What is holding you from seeing someplace new, having fun, or changing your scenery just a little. What is keeping you from that special moment you always wanted? Find a way.

So as the sun sets on another day, what a fun life. Make every day not just good, make it exceptional. Jump on a horse and ride. Drive that race car. Write the book. Travel anywhere, even if it is across the street but do that exciting thing, and enjoy your life, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the moments…
