Your room…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was “whaaat”. After intense storms and a bolt of lightning I saw set the air on fire, sunset was colorful and clear. I enjoyed the plethora of colors as I considered the day.

Think with me for a while. You are sitting in a blank room. All the walls are white. The door is white, the door handle is white, and the light on the ceiling is a pale pink that lights up the room, making it even more white. There you are. In the corner of the room are boxes full of wood, crayons, pins, markers, and paint. The room is yours to do with as you see fit. What do you do?

You’ll be in this room for a long time. Someone comes in with different colors, things you don’t like, colors you don’t like, and wants to redo your room. Do you let them?

It’s pretty funny sometimes when you think about it. As people, we don’t need someone else to decorate for us. Sometimes it’s nice, and sometimes we like the help, but for the most part, we like things to be the way we want them to be. If you wouldn’t let somebody redecorate your room or your house why do you let them decide how you feel?

If you would let someone redo everything in a way that isn’t what you like, why? When we are in relationships, this shifts some as we share the vision with someone else, but still, we have our opinions and tend to guide one way or another. Sometimes we work with others and build something we all like, and that can be fun as well. Maybe that other person opens your eyes to new things and ways to express yourself. Still, it is up to us to choose our vision.

Sorry, long way of getting here. When we wake up in the morning, we can make our day into whatever we want to be. We can make it the best day that we can possibly have, or we can make it the worst day that we have ever had. Most people would choose to have a better day to have a bad day, but we have to ask ourselves if you’re having a good day and somebody tries to bring you down or make it worse, why do you let them?

Stop letting people take away your good day. Start using your crayons and markers to build the day you want. After all, it is your day. The entire world is only from one point of view, yours, so make it a day that you will remember.

So as the sun sets on another day, I think we need some markers. LEt’s make a terrific day today filled with the things we like. Along the way, lets find the most amazing world we can make for ourselves and for others, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and it’s all you…
