The sun sets on another day…
Another day the sun has set, and another, and another. How many must pass before you look up in wonder? How many sunsets must speed by before you realize how preciously defined time is crafted.
When you’re awake for a long time you contemplate a lot of things. Some thoughts are evident, and some thoughts are just kinda out there. This week mine are kinda out there.
We create a virtual speed dial in our minds of the things we want to go to easily. Those things we are passionate about or obsessed with. This virtual speed dial is the prime pathway for purpose in our daily panderings. Imagine what is on your speed dial for a moment with me? Is it someone you care about? Someone you lost? Is it a happy time? A happy feeling? Is it a negative time? Is it death or similar? When you see someone or something before you do you see friend, foe? Where is the speed dial set?
We are the keepers of our own speed dial systems into our life. It may be for good, it may be for bad, or it may be neutral but it is not the fault of speed dial 4, Biff the Bully from Elementary school. It is the fact we put Biff the Bully into speed dial slot 4 instead of Carrie (Or Ken) the cuddle bunny from high school. We choose.
Think about what you jump to, and consider reprogramming your speed dial if you need to do so.
So as the sun sets on another day, I find my speed dial is filled with amazing people, places, and things. Some of them are outstanding and some sublime, but always they are special. From puppies and butterflies to fantastic feelings, it is only a quick slot away to get to happy memories, fun times, and a little more. Make your speed dial a reflection of how you want to feel, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love deeply, and smile if you can…
