The sun sets on another day…
There was a chance. The truck rumbled around the corner to the open expanse of lake Michigan only to find the clouds slowly smashing the horizon, and the sun already hidden. Still, the sky was amazing and as the darkness rolled in, the rain falling in the horizon was beautiful.
It seems like the world goes back and forth with just about everything. As my mind wandered tonight I considered all of the things that change and stay the same as the world turns. I’m not going to go into all of them simply because it would turn into some ridiculous debate about what’s right and what is wrong and about who stands for what and what stands for what else. Instead I’m just going to say that the world waffles. It’s not exactly like weebles that wobble and don’t fall down but instead it’s more like waffles that need just a little more syrup and a lot more spice.
So what right?
Before us every day we are offered the choice of how we are and who we are. We can stand for ourselves or stand for others. We can stand for what we believe is right knowing that that may change from moment to moment. We can find our way to believing in people or disbelieving in people on a whim for no other reason than what we see in front of us. We can take the time to learn who people are and make decisions based on what we learn and what we know. In the end it is our choice on how we live our life and we will face the ramifications of our decisions. Whether we end up surrounded by loved ones or whether we end up alone and unknown is completely up to us.
How do you want to be? Are you so sure of who you are did everything around you is finite and you know you are right beyond belief? Do you think if you raise your voice enough that it will make you truer? If you take a moment, do you adapt your ideas as you learn or do you discard them in favor of what you think you know? Do you learn or do you know, I think you know that we all need to learn but that too is up to you. I hope you find the wisdom to make the right choices.
So as the sun sets on another day, the world waffles and sometimes you will need to waffle with it while others will guide you to pancakes. Be the person willing to see more and realize that everything changes moment to moment and sometimes that should include you. I hope you find room to grow, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and syrup anyone…
