Your choice…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset was a wild ride. I was not sure if it would be a good sunset or not as the day was filled with clouds. In the end I missed for the best of reasons, hanging a decoration.

I was sitting tonight in relative pain from cleaning up dead trees today. Well that and a bunch of other things. As I massaged my shoulders I thought that it was unfair for half a second mainly because when I was younger I could split wood with an axe for 10 hours straight. I guess I’m not 17 anymore.

I set those thoughts aside rather rapidly simply because it was my choice to push so hard. I know it’s really not fair to say this but for the most part how we feel is our choice. We are the root of our own positivity or we are the root of our own evil.

If we’re sore from a workout it was our choice to do the workout. It will be better for us in the end and eventually the workout will not hurt. With that in mind it was our choice to stop working out to begin with. It was our choice to have too many cheeseburgers. It was our choice do not listen to ourselves or others. It was our choice to go down every path that we went down. To say someone else was responsible is an illusion as we had a choice.

I guess that’s something at the core of 29,000 sunsets or at least the idea of 29,000 sunsets. If tomorrow was going to be the last day that you would be here, what would you do differently? Why aren’t you doing it now? You also have to remember that that 29,000 sunsets doesn’t just apply to you. if you are friends with, dating, married, handcuffed to someone else, saying “oops” and missing chances is as much on you as it is them. regret over lost moments is the worst kind.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and consider your choices and that you do pick a few good ones. Make the world your amazing place and walk away feeling great about your days, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love pancakes, and don’t forget to be you…
