The speed of it all…

The sun sets on another day…

I enjoyed sunset, but I also enjoyed the kite surfers on the waves early in the day. I found myself wandering a little this morning, and as I did, the early morning wind threw people through the air and made the moments a little more amusing. Sure, it was freezing outside, sure there was still ice on everything but somewhere inside of it all was the will of people just to enjoy themselves.

It’s funny how life comes at us fast and is better enjoyed slow. We go through our lives not paying as much attention to time as we should, and as time begins to run out, we try to wring the moments out of every second simply because we ignored the time when we had it. So many people look for tomorrow and eliminate their todays that it almost makes me feel sad. Even more, people have it figured out until they don’t. There are a few that are sure they don’t have it figured out, but they’re enjoying life better than many.

I know that’s about as clear as mud unless you’re already in the mud, but if you pay attention, you’ll quickly realize that it’s not all that bad to slow down the moments. Even more so it is not all that bad to take a breath and laugh for a little while.

I find myself enjoying every day and trying to make the moments longer. I have done this for a long time, but often it gets away from me. I am the one who wants the game to go longer so that I can enjoy it. I am the one who doesn’t want to stop laughing at the comedian and wonders why they have to finally go home. I am the one who wants a kiss to last for three, even if it’s inside my mind. I am the one that thinks passion is more important than just about anything.

Someone told me a long time ago that all they wanted was peace. They wanted some modicum of control of their day-to-day lives, and they wanted to be able to take a breath and just slow down. It is my opinion that it is better for us to not only be able to take that breath but to be able to do it as we are lost in an exciting moment. It seems like it’s counterproductive, but I would like to think that chaos and order should be close bedfellows all the time.

So as the sun sets on another day, I hope you find the passion and purpose to make today your best day. I hope you can slow it down or speed it up so that it suits you and makes your life far more complete. After all, there is no better day than today to be your best day. I hope you find it, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and lets get some pieā€¦.
