The sun sets on another day...

Two days until Christmas. 

A lot can happen in two days. I was thinking today that in two days you can nearly change a world. In two days you can find love, lose love, change your life, make new life, the possibilities are nearly limitless.

Two days.

Today was a great day, family and fun. There was a time I could only imagine the possibility of sitting on the couch and being at peace. Today, as my son and daughter were here I found a slice of peace, and in the process found that maybe a few hours is something we should appreciate. Maybe if we have just two days, two days would be enough.

A great many people have come and gone from my life. Some for good reasons, some for not so good reasons. I have been a great many places. I have experienced a great many things. How about you? IF you had two days to list the best things in your life, would it be enough?

There is no right or wrong answer, just think about it for a while, and consider the possibilities two days contains. Consider a world where a single day is important, not because it is the only day, but because a single day can change our lives.

So as the sun sets on another day, think about you. Not me. Think about the two days we have left before Christmas, think about how good life can be, and in the process, make your life a little better, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and smile for the camera...

The sun sets on another day...

This is the third post I have written tonight. 

It is now three days until Christmas. I am elated, overjoyed, happy, and working as well as I can. The world is amazing, and as I move forward I am trying to see past a few things, through a few things, and just set a few things aside.

Several people have written to me fr the new book, and as I sit here I challenge myself every day to finish, but keep rewriting several places. It is time to push, and be complete.

At the same time I am happy to see my family, and saddened for those I cannot see, and for those who are past.

Still, I find happiness in the world just about every day because I look.

I say have fun a lot to people, and some may think it less than fun, or scorn me because of it. If we are not here to have a little fun, why are we here?

When my Dad died, his wish was to be remembered for the fun he had, and his request was for people to go to a pizza place and have pizza. Not mourn, not worry about him, but to enjoy a moment. If you knew that today was the last time you would get to see someone, or do something you enjoy, would you worry about how bad it was, or just enjoy it. Doesn't it make more sense to press the envelope and enjoy everything you can, rather than just think "someday it will end".

We look for entertainment that gives us some sort of pause, or some guidance, and all I can say, is watch something funny and laugh a little. Look for the beauty in things and smile a little. Look for the love in your heart and feel a little.

So as the sun sets on another day, well, it is a good day, there are good things happening and some that may not be so good, but we can react in a positive manner every time. We can have fun when no one else can, enjoy the day we have and not keep waiting for a tomorrow. We can make our day what it should be and should do so, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love lfe, and try to smile a little...

Four more days to Christmas.

The sun sets on another day...

Somethings we cannot see are real for all of us. They makes us whole, make us more, make the world a better place. If we get specific on one we can sing of it, laugh of it, feel it, receive it, and give it. It is a powerful force. It is an old feeling, that we always seek. What is it? Joy.

I know I know, we wrote odes to it, named people after it, and for the most part have tried to build a world around it but how do we truly know joy? Is joy something we can force or is it something deep in our hearts that is awakened by people, places and things. Is Joy that thing that makes us better or do we make Joy better by being a part of the joy in our heart, our soul, or lives. It is all difficult if you think about it, the level of joy in our life comes and goes, but perhaps we need to look a little further.

"Joy" is defined as a feeling of great pleasure or happiness. Not just happiness, and not just pleasure, but GREAT pleasure and happiness. Do you feel it? Do you know it? Do you understand the depth of joy in your life?

I have found for me, that joy is doing something great, and making it even greater. Joy is taking life to the next level. Joy is taking a good photo, finishing a book, or just flying around. Joy can be hitting a bulls-eye one more time, the feeling of a good friend, and the feeling of knowing someone is there no matter what. Sure, there are people who will try to take our joy away. Those people who don't see joy as important, those that are cold, or mean, or worse. There are things that take joy away, the storm, or other act that is beyond our control, but joy is GREAT.

So as the sun sets on another day, we can still hold on to Joy if we just want to. In the storm we can see the beauty, in the rain we can see the life, in a bad memory we can see a good beginning. With just about anything, we can see more, and be more. Find joy in anything you can, and you will have more than great happiness, you will have a great life.

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

The sun sets on another day...

The sunset was, well, hiding again. There are a lot of things going on in the world right now, and the sun just had to hide.

I was thinking a lot today. Mainly because there was a lot to think about. It is sometimes easy to consider the depth of how we think. Some people can see a light as a light and some see it as a lack of darkness. Some people see red, and some see green. Some fall in between, but always what we see is what is actually there, even if we don't see it the same way.

Today I saw a group of normally gentle people in the online world get inflamed by a debate. The debate was not important, the divides between people were important. People can fall to the wayside so quickly as they seem to lose the perspective of who they are, and what they represent.

So what right? What does this have to do with 29000 sunsets?

It is easy, if we are finite on this earth, and last time I checked we are finite, maybe we should consider more positive discussions, more positive interactions, maybe we should consider more positive. Maybe just maybe we should consider a higher path, a path that leads us to interacting in a positive way, not a negative one. 

So as the sun sets on another glorious day, take a step down a path to happiness and amazement, enjoy the depths of all you see, and enjoy the world like today is always the best day of your life. Stop worrying about divides, get some super glue, and make the world an amazing place, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and have fun...
