The sun sets on another day…
Another fantastic day, another fantastic sunset. I watched the sky darken and fade, and I enjoyed every moment. Yes, it was too early, but it was a good eve.
It has been a long week. I have spent some time putting together several completions to projects. Still, I did complete those projects. I overcame obstacles and myself. Perhaps the biggest obstacle is myself. People often don’t realize that there is no one you can blame for your success or failure but you. This makes the world pretty interesting, huh? No one to blame but me? I guess I have to take the blame.
People, including me sometimes, come up with pretty ridiculous ideas to not be successful or fulfilled. They avoid doing x, y, or z in favor of doing something else and use that something else as a blocker. They allow people to take away their time, their power, or their life, and then blame the people and not themselves. They put themselves in difficult situations, then explain the situation away. Or, and this happens a lot, they just don’t do something, and in not doing something they think it is not their fault. It gets old.
I like the ones that say, “I meant to do this” and in the process accept unacceptable situations. I am reminded here of an episode of Tales from the Crypt, where a restaurant only selling squid is failing, but it is only selling squid? Hard to make a successful business on a squid sandwich.
Anyway, it is up to you. You can do it, and if you cannot, you can always ask for help. There is always a solution that will take you to the places you want to go, you just have to be willing to engage and do it. After all, no one knows you like you, or at least I hope not.
So as the sun sets on another date, tote that barge, lift that bale, and in the process, finish a few things. Be the person you want to be, find the path that works. In the process, define your best day, every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and it’s up to you…
