Clear as mud…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was spectacular. I watched as the sky was overrun with color and light. It was a spectacular lightshow that remained for a while after sunset then slowly faded into a magnificently clear night.

I have found that sometimes the paths that we need to take in life aren’t as straightforward as they could be. There are lots of people that say we should trust and the right path will come along. There are many people who say we should make our own path and forge a way to our success. There are still other people who think we should hang around and wait until a spotlight and a yellow brick road appear, showing us where to go. The list goes on.

I’m not going to put on my sage hat tonight and be the ultimate expert, as I have chosen many wrong paths. I’m not going to say there is a perfect path for you and an ideal path for me because, quite honestly, there are a lot of different paths that could be perfect. Instead, I’m going to say find a way to be happy and make your day spectacular. Perhaps the path will be apparent if we just look for one spectacular day each day.

I have said it before, and you could search for it, but at one time, I stood at the top of a hill and considered my life. I made a choice, and it wasn’t the best choice or the worst choice. It was simply a choice. That choice turned out to be wrong, but my path turned out OK. I suppose there are worse outcomes.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a minute and breathe. Take a minute and realize how fantastic you are. Take a minute and look at the paths you have before you and make a choice, then find your way to the best day today and every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love with all your heart, and be passionate…
