Well mostly…

The sun sets on another day…

I missed tonight as I considered the rain falling opn my car and driving to the beach. Instead I watched colors dance in the woods as the sky parted for only a moment, lighting a path to the west.

I was thinking tonight about the movie “Aliens”. A fun movie to be sure, but there are numerous lines that stand out and if you listen, can make you think a little about life. During the movie there is a poortion where a ship crashes and a series of survivors are left on the planet. A small girl warns them all that they should go back to the base and notes “they mostly come at night, mostly”. It is the softness of the last statement that resonates like thunder.

With that in mind we should always take the path of “mostly”.

We may even wanna think about it more pointedly and try to decide if even mostly is enough. There are times when we know there are things that may affect us negatively but with a little bit of a sidestep, we can overcome almost anything, mostly. With a little bit of positivity, we can do even better, mostly. With a friend, we can step out above everyone else, mostly.

My point is there’s no such thing as a sure thing, but there is a level of positivity that we can have that will protect us mostly. That positivity can be a guide if not a beacon to others to let them know the world cannot get us down, mostly.

So as the sun sets on another day, it’s OK to know that everything may not align exactly the way we want it. At the same time, let’s take a moment and look at how much we have and realize they didn’t spite of the doubts we have a pretty good path. Choose well and keep making the world yours, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love deeply, mostly…
