The Sun sets on another day..
I found Sunset to be fantastic and I was amazed at how easily the day transitioned in to night. I enjoyed the Twilight and the colors that sprayed across the sky.
I’m sitting here thinking and enjoying the sunset. sunset is always enjoyable if you take the time to watch it. With that in mind I giggle and laugh and look up at the sky thinking about all the fantastic moments I have had in this life.
I was thinking about the Disney movie “Hercules” and one of the key differentiators of the movie. The quote I am referring to is “…a true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart…”. It is an interesting idea. Some people may disagree, but I do not. We cannot be measured by all the good we do if we do not do it with the right intentions. We cannot be measured by our deeds if they are all self-serving.
Now a lot of people may think this is self-evident but in the world today I think it needs to be reiterated a few times. We have to understand that we are not the end all be all and sometimes we have to reach out our heart even to people we do not agree with and to those people we normally would shun. I know I know, just about every religion says the same thing. From “love thine enemy” to dozens of other similar the idea is that we are more than just negativity and can reach out and be positive to people. Neat trick huh?
Not that I am perfect. I hold significant grudges sometimes and usually make things right eventually. Ooops.
Today as I sit here watching the sunset I am reminded of heart. All I’m asking is that you take a second and think from your heart. Set aside all the anger and frustration and let’s make today a heart filled day. At least for the few more minutes that we have.
So as the sun sets on another day, maybe today’s heartfelt thoughts will carry over till tomorrow. Maybe all of our tomorrow’s will be better than our yesterdays because we made the effort to make the world a better place. Take that extra second and make the world yours, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and nice job…
