The sun sets on another day...

There is a song that talks about how to sing, and one of the keys is making you song simple, to last your whole life long.

It makes sense.

If you make something complicated, you may well fail, however if you make something simple, you have an chance of succeeding more easily. A clear cut expectation, and a clear cut goal. make most goals more attainable.

Today I had a simple dream, it is a dream from long ago, so I went to the space center at dusk, and finally go to take a picture of the SR71 Blackbird that sits out front. I know it seems or may seem silly, but this plane set so many records and was at such a center point of my dreams, that being that close gave me a special satisfaction only a simple dream can give. Make it simple, and it will now last my whole life long.

So as the sun sets on another day, consider your dreams for a moment, and as you do, maybe see if they are simply enough and if not, make them simple, and if they are, reach out and make them real, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life

The sun sets on another day...

How do you approach this fine day. Thankfully.

As days go forward each day can be considered a day that we should approach thankfully, but in the end, days like Thanksgiving remind us of such.

I have never really easily understood how you can walk through a day and not be thankful but I know so many people who are living day by day and not seeing the beauty and wonderment around them. Each day can be an adventure if you look at it a certain way, and each day is a lesson, and each day is a reason to keep pushing for another day.

So consider what you have that makes you feel thankful, and hold onto it.

I am thankful for family, for friends, for special moments, and even those that are not so special. I am thankful for sunsets, and sunrises, warm days, and those days that are not so warm.

Mostly I am thankful for the time I can have each day, and each day knowing that there are people who care, and who I care about.

So as the sun sets on another day, make a list. Make a list of all those people you are thankful for in life. Those people who helped you grow, and laugh, and smile, and learn about life. Be thankful to those who hurt you, and those who treated you well. Remember, be thankful for everyone in your past for they are who made you who you are today.

Sleep sweet, smile bright, and laugh the night away...

The sun sets on another day...

Sometimes as we drive through life we are reminded that there are thin lines to our sides that keep us on the road. We know we have to follow the path to get where we are going, but sometimes it seems the road is far too long to make it there in a timely manner. Sometimes the lines we are  driving between feel like a prison and as we watch the drivers to our sides we realize everyone is within those lines, and sometimes it pretty much seems like no one knows where they are going.

With that in mind I watch the cars zip in and out, faster and faster going to nowhere fast, and me following. Are you following as well?

I saw a commercial that made me think of all of this recently. The choice is yours. you can follow the road and go wherever it leads, or occasionaly go off road, and take a chance with the bears, and maybe have an adventure.

So as the sun sets on another day, the path before us isn't always clear, but it is usually our path. Choose a path that leads to your happiness and find a way, not just everyone's way, but your way. 

Sleep sweet, smile like crazy, and love life...

The sun sets on another day...


During the summer it is so consistently stunning to wake early and see the sun rise, and wait until nearly 9 at night to watch it set. Barely 8 hours of darkness each night make the world a special place. Now the tides have shifted, well, the world has pivoted, and it seems like the darkness has come home for a while. 

I want to say though, that it is not a big deal. Even if it is darker longer there is no doubt that the world is full of light. Even if the world seems to be gloomy, there is never a time that we cannot make each other feel bright and happy. Even as the darkness falls, we can easily shine a light on ourselves to be luminous.'

Funny huh? Not haha, but strange.

We are resilient people, you are a resilient person, and even in the darkest night, you can shine. Well, maybe not like a glowworm, but you can shine with a light that makes you see something bigger in the world, and maybe that something is you.

So as the sun sets on another day, take a minute. Pay attention to yourself. Realize the light you bring to other people and be part of that light. Skip those negative feelings, those negative thoughts, and those negative days and instead shine, make the world shine, and in the process find a way towards a happier day, maybe a happier week, and then a happier life.

Sleep sweet, shine bright, and love to the moon and back, and the stars beyond...
