The sun sets on another day…
The sky was dark before I knew it. In this time of year it almost seems as though the sky swallows the light more rapidly than any other. I found myself watching sparkles of spectacular shimmering as snow fell and the light faded away.
We all look for the points of light in our life. Well, most of us do. I have found that there are many Points of Light and tonight as I watched the snowfall and sparkle in the sky as it caught bits of light I considered all of the people who were important to the world. As I did so let me became increasingly evident that there are a lot of things in life that inspire me. Somewhere in the back of my mind sparkles were sparkling and I thought about it, just for a few minutes.
Your assignment for today, if you choose to accept it, is to take a minute and think about all of the sparkles in your life. I find people try so hard to be unique that they don’t realize all of the threads that made them unique. It isn’t just about you or me, it is about all of the interactions that we have and all of the things that we allow into our heart to shape our lives.
This assignment can be daunting, as you review you may find that your third grade teacher gave you a particular metaphor that you use often. Perhaps your grandfather gave you an approach to the world that has served you well. Many of these things you discover, just as many open your mind to possibilities. We are the sum of all that we are and all that we are is interaction with the world around us. We choose which things to carry forward and we can choose to change every moment.
Your path is up to you. As you review your assignment and all of the things that made you what you are do you like what is there? If you do I’m glad, but if you don’t I know that you can change it.
So as the sun sets on another day, I think you turned out pretty good. Take a moment and decide and as you do open your mind to the possibilities of more. Every day can add an additional exciting approach to your life, and as it does create possibilities and perhaps a little more. Find your way to amazement and to that place that you want to be, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and light it up…
