The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was taken by the approaching storm, but that's OK, the storm will be here soon, and storms are beautiful as well.

As I worked today I looked out my window and watched a blue jay running around on the ground, a little later I saw a rabbit, a few chipmunks, a few squirrels, and then a turkey walked by. It was funny. all I had to do was look up, and they were there. If I had kept focusing I never would have seen them.

Life is here, and life is good if you look for it. That may well be the trick, you have to look. I have been told by many people that days are just "meh" and not everything is as good as I let on. I can tell you, life is good if you look for the good in it. Find little things that are good and work your way forward. They do not have to be massive. A kind smile, a good laugh. A fun moment with people who are, well, fun. It is all there if you look for it.

I have found that the movie Pollyanna was right when it was quoted, "When you look for the bad in mankind expecting to find it, you surely will." I have also found if you look for the good, it is there. My point today is it is easy to find whatever you are looking for if you look for it, but I really think you should look for the good in life, the good in us all, and the good you can find. No, don't overlook the bad, just don't dwell on it and everything will be OK. Find the time to make the world your best world and it will be just that.

So as the sun sets on another day, no, this was not supposed to be that sickeningly happy. It was supposed to be a way to see the world. I hope you can see it through my eyes for a second, maybe more, but as you do so remember the world is a great place if you let it be, and you are the perfect person to see it that way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and its a nice night...

The sun sets on another day...

I thought I would write a poem today, and just smile for a moment. So here it is, fresh out of my brain":

People come and people go, never knowing what they know, always talking rarely balking, thinking that they know

People walk and people talk, never going where they go, always moving never soothing, what seeds do they sew

People smile and people frown, not knowing how they feel, never showing whats inside them, what walls do they grow

People laugh and people cry, and so the world looks on, believing always what they see, what really do they show

The sun it rises, the sun it sets, and still the sun it shines. People talk, and people walk, and barely they get by

So in the end its time to stop, and wait just for a few, its time to watch, its time to act, whatever you believe

In the end, the sun still shines.

So as the sun sets on another day, enjoy your day, slow down a little, pay attention to a little more, and try to understand how we all fit together, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the night...

The sun sets on another day...

Sunset would have been nice tonight, but as the sun came close to setting I was on a call with friends and family, and enjoyed a few moments of excitement.

It is easy to forget in times like these how powerful friends are to us all. We often take for granted the pure enjoyment there is just by being together with people who are special. My suggestion to you is simple, take a short time and set up some moments with your friends, and as you do so, enjoy them, be happy with them and just have some fun. Sometimes it doesn't take a lot to make someones day, or make your day better. It just takes knowing the day can be good, and someone cares. Just think about it. As for me, I will bask in the wonderful feelings of happiness for  afew, and enjoy my evening.

So as the sun sets on another day, friends and family are at the core of many of the good times in our life. Family and true friends transcend words as they will be there when you need them, and sometimes when you don't, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, smile bright, and be happy all you can...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sun fell in the western sky I was filled with warmth and enjoying every moment. It was a clear eve or so I thought, but as the sun began to set the clouds, previously overwhelmed by light, shone through and added depth and fire to the sunset. In the end it was not the sunset I expected, but a beautiful series of geometric shapes, lit by the fire of the twilight.

You know, sometimes you don't get what you expect, but often you get something just as exciting or better. The world and our lives are in a constant state of motion, well, mostly they are, and each day all we need to do is open or eyes and see the wonderful moments that are there. They may not be what we were expecting, but usually we can enjoy them just the same. I know, it may not make the best sense, but it is real, and can almost always be a positive if we let it do so.

So as the sun sets on another day, if you don't get what you want out of life, well, you may not be looking. Take a deep breath, smile, and look for the things you overlooked, and enjoy what you can every day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and laugh as often as you can...
