The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was a series of spectacular clouds painted in the sky by a crimson mist. I smiled and I laughed. In the end it was more than beautiful and still subdued.
As some of you know I watch a lot of movies. I also read a lot of books. This weekend as I sold books I also recommended dozens people who were just looking for something that was enlightening or entertaining. It’s a lot of fun and I only believe that most people appreciate the suggestions I make. Saturday I watched many of them walk out with the books I suggested and that is pretty awesome.
Today as I attended the Haley Sue Foundation golf scramble and took pictures I ended up listening to the description of Haley, my niece. As several people talked they gave their view of what Haley stood for and what she did in the world but as I listened many of the accounts did not match up. I was reminded of a movie for a second because the answer was they were all right. It wasn’t as though anyone was saying anything wrong it’s just that the positives that were being relayed were all correct. I listened then I learned as I realized how lucky the world is to have adaptable individuals. I was impressed.
As I considered this I came up with an exercise for everyone. I would like you to take a moment and write a paragraph about yourself that describes who you are and what you believe. It can be long or short or dramatic or whatever you want it to be because it’s you. Once you are done ask somebody close to you to write a short paragraph to describe you as well then compare the two. I think this will be fun and if it isn’t, oops.
For me I think of myself as a contradiction of vision and morality. I believe fervertently in good but occasionally will skirt that line in order to serve a greater good. I never go looking for trouble and have avoided it a significant amount, but I will not back away from trouble and in the end I know that I am a monster.
Think about it and if you know me you probably have a way to get in touch with me by email, let me know what you think.
So as the sun sets on another day, consider every day as an opportunity to do more and be more. Find yourself and your center and using the amazing you that you have, find make a difference all you can. Why? Because you and the world the world is that special. Find the passion and prowess to change everything you can that needs changing, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and keep living…
