The sun sets on another day...

I often enjoy sunsets because, well, because they're sunsets. I enjoy sunrises the same but each has their own appeal and each makes me smile a different way.

At the rising of the sun each morning we set out for a new day and prepare to conquer all of the things that we have no idea we will face. Of course since there are twenty-nine thousand sunsets in our life there are also 29000 sunrises and we could easily note that each day as we prepare we know that this will be the day we make a difference. This aligns perfectly with the idea of 29000 sunsets. Maybe even more. If we knew that we were on the sunrise of the 29,000th would we live this day differently? Then why are we living it differently right this moment? This question is haunting too many don't you think? When we get up in the morning shouldn't we prepare for the best possible day that we can have? Isn't it time to set aside are negativities and set aside our potential issues and instead make today our day?

I am reminded of a song that I sang in church when I was younger it stated that this is the day and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Maybe we need to rejoice and be glad in every day that we have gotten up and face the new sunrise. Sure by the end of this day we have may have faced a hundred hundred issues and given even more resolutions but can't we do that with raw attitude? Can't we step Up and make sure that the world knows we are a formidable force for positivity?

I know, this has been a lot of questions and not as many answers. I know that I'm not giving some amazing advice, or maybe I am. Each morning I get up and step up face a dozen issues before I have even started moving. Today I find myself coming up with a solution and making my start of the day a positive one. Yes, I sing in the shower. Yes, I turn off the news and the depressing issues once I have seen them once. Yes, I stretch and work myself so that I am limber enough to face another day. Yes, I breathe in and truly believe the today will be an amazing day.

In my opinion that's all it takes. All it takes to have a good day is to decide that today is going to be a good day and that nothing that comes forward no matter how horrible will take this day away from us. I am again reminded of a favorite scene in a comic book where a character is not to the ground and as he gets back up states with conviction " knock me down a hundred times and I will get up the hundred and first as strong and as fresh as ever oh, you are going to lose close quote. Isn't that what we need to do? In my opinion we need to squeeze every moment out of life and stop looking for reasons not to live. We owe it to ourselves. We owe it to others. And we owe it to the world to be the best possible person we can be everyday.

So as the sun sets on another day, I feel good about the day. I felt good as I saw the sun rise and I felt good as I saw the sun set. Both gave me pause and showed me the Fantastic options I had for the day. Weather sunrise or sunset I will get up the hundred first and I will win, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and get up...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset peaked thinly under the clouds at the last minute and shone brightly before falling once again and then darkness was upon us. It was truly a beautiful scene and I enjoyed it for all the time that I could.

Today was a wonderful day and many ways. So many days recently have been bittersweet where I held onto the positive but the negatives were there. Today I was reminded of how proud I am of my children and all day of death. If we Define ourselves everyday and make the best possible us all the time we can it only follows we should help our children see that same logic, that same goal. Today is I left my youngest and my other children I realize they have grown up and become fantastic adults. How can I ask for anymore then all they have given.

So I suppose my statement to everyone is teach your children how to be good people. Don't teach them to be presumptuous or arrogant or any of a thousand other things but instead show them how to succeed with people places and things. Show them that they do have value but they have to reinvent this value each day. Mostly show them that being a good person is possible. I hope I have done okay.

So as the sun sets on another day consider well all the wonderful things that you've done and if you get a chance let your children know how proud you are of them. You don't have children I hope you have a fantastic day and in the process enjoy every moment you can no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and carry it forward...

The sun sets on another day...

The sky was full. Full of clouds full of Rain full of snow and full of wind. It was not a bad sunset but it was not a sunset that we could see only imagine in the back of our minds.

Tonight I left snow and rain and a real mess traveling south until I saw the moonlight far above me add stars shining in the dead of night. It was hard to imagine how a few short hours have such a tremendous effect on the landscape at the weather around me. It's not that it was better or worse just that it was different. It's not that it was better or worse it just was something to experience.

You know often good times are just around the corner. Only a moment away and suddenly the world would be a better place. It's often hard to believe when you're in the middle something that isn't going well but you have the ability to make it good, to make it bad, or just to make it. I know this seems like something I repeat far too much but each day is your decision not anyone else's because only you decide how you face the world even if the world has decided to face you in a different way.

So as the sun sets on another day, you have the ability to make today anything you want today to be. Take the time, make it real, and make each day your own, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and make it yours...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset was once again lost in the darkness but I knew that high above the lights were playing across the tops of the clouds and there was Beauty there.

You should never underestimate the power of an encouraging word. So many people are looking for just that. I know in this day and age there are so many lines drawn in the sand that it's hard to know what to say and what not to say. Still something that could stand with us all is it being positive to people and letting them know how we feel never a bad thing. (Unless of course you're crazy)

When you see someone that's having a difficult time saying something nice can often help. Sure there may be times that they don't want to hear anything but all you have to say is good job or I believe in you and suddenly things maybe a little better. I know it's not much but sometimes it's just enough.

In order to make it through our days we can of course focus on ourselves all the time but it is my opinion that that will never be enough. It's my opinion that as we progressed we need to focus on all the potential positive and everything else and everyone else. It will make our lives more rich.

So as the sun sets on another day a kind word cost nothing and can mean everything. A kind word is always enough if it said at the right time. Hold on to it, laugh with it, and make sure someone knows how you feel, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and isn't it fun to be a good person...
