New heights…

The sun sets on another day…

You might think I’m strange, but I enjoyed sunset last night as snow fell silently in the night to warm ground that didn’t let it last for more than a few seconds. As I slowly burned Jack pine trimmings in the burn barrel, I shined my flashlight to the sky and watched the snowflakes sparkle as the sun set somewhere high above.

You know a lot of times we take for granted how good our day is. It’s funny really that when you have a good day when the next day comes many people expect a better day and eventually the days can’t get much better. Sure, sometimes they do, but often when we slip just a little it seems like we’re having a bad day, but we are not.

It is said that someone “wept when I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet”. It has been stated several times in several ways and is actually an old proverb and from Shakespeare. It is there that we sometimes have an issue. We are so concerned about how things are going that we don’t realize how good they are. Take a deep breath, hold it in, and think about all the people that can’t even do that. Oh, you can breathe now, don’t forget to breathe.

All I’m trying to say is that as we reach new heights in happiness don’t forget that you are still happy. As we find our way don’t forget that there was a path to get us there. It’s actually pretty easy stuff.

So as the sun sets on another day, today was a pretty good day. I even got to see some fun people that I hadn’t seen in a while. Tomorrow will be good too just because and for no other reason than that. I hope you can say the same and find a way every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the eve…
