Rising above…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was conflicted as clouds rolled in, signaling upcoming storms. As the night progressed, those storms became powerful and noisy, and the world seemed to be a little nicer for a while.

Stop. Look around. Each day there is negativity around us all. It is closing in. There is a dark force in the air. It’s coming. I see the darkness, closer, closer, eeeek! I scared myself.

Seriously though, every day, there is darkness in the world that tries to slow you down. Every day there are plenty of reasons to be negative. It is easier to make a list of them all. From daily pressures to politics, from health to negative people, these things try to keep you from finding a good and super day.

I know this sounds oh so easy and isn’t, but rise above them. How?

Well, for as much as there are unlimited horrible things to consider, there are also a multitude of other things that can lift us up. Find the butterfly that dances with you. Laugh at the antics of children and puppies. Take a moment at a beach and enjoy the crash of the waves. Savor the taste of a favorite food. Laugh with friends and get lost in the moment. All of the positives will allow you to choose and rise above the negatives. In the end, all it takes is for you to choose.

So as the sun sets on another day, my days are good because I rise above all the negative stuff and find a way to enjoy every moment. You have the choice, the tools are there, but it is up to you to rise above or stay in the mire and muck. Personally, I would rather avoid the leeches in the muck and instead make my days unforgettable every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love passionately, and live every moment…
