The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was spectacular and as I watched it fade behind the hills I was happy with the day. A lot of memories, a great deal of good times.
As I had dinner tonight there was a plethora of amazing conversation going on. I found myself listening as much as talking and was impressed with the level of pure willpower I heard.
Earlier this week I wrote about someone here that impressed me in many ways. Today I listened to someone who has one of the best attitudes I know, but has faced massive adversity.
Imagine for a moment facing the foster system. Not for one or two years, but for a good portion of their life. Imagine that every turn was a new house but nothing to call home. Then imagine waking every day with an attitude to overcome, and maybe a little more. This night I listened to someone who flat said, “I don’t need negativity” and lives with that motto each day. They were a breath of fresh air in a world filled with negatives, and their approach to life is as direct: “live it well and have fun along the way.”
I can only hope we all can learn from people like this and find a way to be positive not because of the bad in our life, but in spite of it. Set an example, be that positive force that inspires others. Be like this person and don’t let your life decide who you are, but instead decide who you are and make a life.
So as the sun sets on another day, make every day as special as it should be. There is always someone amazing out there to look to, and if not, look to yourself. You know the right answers and can make your life spectacular, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be super…
