The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was sublime and I enjoyed the colors of the sky for a moment, then the moment was gone. It still was a good eve, and as darkness fell I smiled.
There is a lot to consider in the world. So much is going on that people seem mired in a never ending muck of what is right and what is wrong. People disagree and it seems as though many disagree for the sake of disagreeing and many more find the half empty glass and pour the contents out never realizing how big the glass was.
It is with that in mind that I suggest that we all take inventory of ourselves and realize that each of us has the ability to be the truest and best in the world. What is true and best about us? In my opinion it is the power and ability of people to see beyond themselves and be compassionate towards others.
I may be wrong, but I strongly feel that everyone has the capability of being more. Everyone makes a choice for how they will be. Whether it be open and positive or cold and cruel depends only on what they are and what they feel. It does not reduce their capability of being positive and involved with others. Somewhere in the midst of it all as our electronic age crashed in upon us we seemed to have forgotten the empathy that we all are built upon.
I am guilty as anyone. I can be positive and pay attention to others but I have the capability of being cold and cruel. I simply choose not to go down that path. I’m not saying I’m perfect, far from it. I am saying that I try hard to make the right choice quite often.
How about you? Do you look for the positive in everything you do? Do you look for the positive in others? When you find it are you patient? Do you understand how others feel? Do you try? All these questions and hundreds more align you with the world. Consider them if you can.
I am not saying that everyone will be positive. I’m not saying that the world is full of tulips and butterflies. I know there are some people that will never try to see a positive light. I know there are some people that will never try to understand others. Still, I only have to choose for me. You only have to choose for you. Make a good choice.
So as the sun sets on another day, I believe that so many people give us the ability to showcase the truest and best in the world. I hope you will consider allowing them to do so and in the process maybe doing so yourself. After all, the world is a better place with you in it. Make good choices, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be true…
