The sun sets on another day...
Again the snow fell and now there are feet on the ground. Well, several feet of snow.
I am often amused by the idea of flattery. I know that flattery can sometimes get you anywhere and sometimes gets you nowhere but the idea of flattery is telling people something nice.
Shouldn't we be telling people something nice anyway? Shouldn't we always look for the good in things and not focus on the bad? I was a little frustrated today as I thought about all of the negativity and fear in the world. In the end there will be little memory of all the reasons why all this has happened. instead we will have the memory of fear and soon it will be whether we overcame it or became a slave to it.
My point is (not the one on top of my head) maybe we need to start spending our time being positive to people. Maybe we need to spend some time being positive to ourself. After all, flattery may get you nowhere or it may get you somewhere but if you flatter yourself and are truthful about it, it can probably get you anywhere. I like that idea.
So as the sun sets on another day, take a moment and give some flattery then take a little bit if it's given to you. The world would be a better place if we just took the time to look for the good in things , no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love, and love some more…
The sun sets on another day…
Another snowy day, another tractor ride down the drive, and another day to consider at all.
I've read a lot of books about chance. “Chance and Chaos” was a lot of fun and continued to fascinate me about mathematics, weather patterns, and patterns in seemingly impossible situations. There are a lot of books that really focus on how chance affects our lives.
I find it can all be summed up in those two little words that so many situations are based on, “What if”.
I know, I know, there are a lot of people that don't even think about “what if”. In truth we shouldn't spend a whole lot of time with it because isn't it either whining about the past or pining about the future? Still sometimes “what if” gives us that ability to see to the next level. “What if” can let us see further and in the process help us and to understand what we couldn't see a moment ago. It can also help us to understand why there is more and how to be more.
Take just a moment and consider. It doesn't have to be anything amazing it just has to be a situation that might change your world. It could be something that opens your eyes to a larger picture. It could be something as simple as someone giving you a hug that you never thought you would see again. It could be almost anything. Still just consider for a moment “what if”.
OK, time's up.
So as the sun sets on another day, I just had to think about chance for a few minutes today to realize I took a chance doing it. Now I'm going to focus on new challenges from the very real question, “What if”. in the process I hope I can make things better for at least one person, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, no matter what period..
The sun sets on another day…
I think if we took the time to consider the world we would take the time to consider a lot more then the slices of life we often look at.
My first published book was a book of poetry called “A Slice of Passion”. it contained a series of poems that I had written over a period of about 20 years at the time. This meant that many of the poems we're from me struggling to understand life at a relatively young age.
As I read through many of these poems recently I realized that I could see myself grow through my writing and through my understanding of the complexities of people. My life have been driven by passion since a very young age. People who know me usually see that. It is not that I focused passion on one thing or another but that I focused passion on a considerable number of things and sometimes seem well over the top to many people.
I have only met a few people that have some concept of what I feel. What is interesting is I saw in each of them the same thing that I feel but each one of them broke my heart in one way or another. Perhaps unbridled passion cannot coexist. Perish the thought. I would like to think that somewhere out there that there are two people with the virtually unlimited passion that I have they have found each other and in the process they have found a way to ignite passion beyond passion. At least I'll keep thinking that.
No matter how I look at it I know that my passion is what pushes me to do more, read more, love more , be more, do more, and to put it quite simply sometimes makes me larger than life. for that matter I am larger than life simply because I'm a giant as well. Funny isn't it? How that sometimes works?
I'm curious about you. Are there things that you feel passionate about? Passion being a near uncontrollable emotion? Are there things in life that you consider to be passionately important? Do you apply passion beyond the relationship between people? Are you passionate?
So as the sun sets on another day, consider all these questions and remember that I'll keep thinking that unbridled passion can exist, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and don't let go…
The sun sets on another day ...
Sunset was full of clouds and this little fluffy thing called snow. I feel like I have been shoveling for quite some time and driving my poor little tractor to the brink of brinkdom.
As I sat watching the snowfall, I thought about the marvelous knowledge that all of the snowflakes were different. It might be weird but then I thought about how unique everything was if you looked at it the right way. Then I remembered some experiments that we had done in high school and college revolving around solutions. Solutions were fun most of the time just because as you experimented with them you realized there was a lot going on beneath the surface. Well beneath the surface of the liquid.
There's always something unique in everything we do, but if we think about it there's always something else mixed in. I get a kick out of that too . Do you know I might get a kick out of just about everything if I sat down and thought about it simply because everything is so awesome. Still the idea that everything is a solution of some sort, meaning a bunch of stuff blended together with water, is pretty cool. As I sat thinking about the snow it made me feel good to go down this path.
So as the sun sets on another day, nothing is as black and white as you think. Except maybe snow and road dirt. everything else is some type of solution, well maybe. just take your time and realize black and white isn't is cool as 1000 Shades of Grey.
Sleep sweet, love life, and have a super eve…
