The sun sets on another day...

I wish.

I have written a lot of poetry and prose over the years. The poems helped let loose passion, the prose captured ideas and dreams. This lead to writing several books. Of those I have completed 3 and almost 4, and have over a dozen in a state of partial completion. The trick is to press forward when you can, and not just wish, but instead do.

I know a lot of people who have gone further, and done more. some of them are very good at what they do, some of them are less than perfect but they all did more than just wish, they made things happen.

So what is it you wish? If you took the wish away and made it more, how would you go about doing it? How can you make it more than a wish, how can you make it real?

Sometimes that is all it takes. A few simple actions to be more than words. sometimes we only need change our point of view and make a wish a means to an end. Sometimes we need to do more than wish, we need to make the world our own and do a little more. 

So as the sun sets on another day, the world is yours, or at least your world. How are you going to show the world all that is you. How are you going to be that person that takes a wish and makes it into more? I would like to think we can all write a book, build a business, change a life, or more and I think we can if we just start thinking about a world where wishes are more than just heartfelt dreams, and reality is what we make it. Find your words and make them real. Find your life, and make it more and smile a little along the way, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star...

The sun sets on another day...

I have a lamp that floats on a bed of magnets. It is supposed to be an easy balance that you put it on a coaster and slowly lay it down on the magnetic field. I think at this point the light was not meant to fly. I did it once, then tried to move it, and of course it fell off the magnetic repulsion and I had to start over. Finally, after an immense number of times, it is on and turning around. All it took was a lot of balance.

We all have our own balancing act to deal with every day. There are things pulling us in different directions and eventually we just get stretched too far. It is not as if there is too little or too much, it is just so hard to balance. Well, sometimes it is too little or too much.

So how do you balance each day? What is the secret that makes you complete? Is there something larger that will offer you solace if you are out of balance? It is questions like these we should ask daily to determine just how much of an impact we have on the world. It is questions like these that may define us at times, how do you achieve balance?

I have to change from time to time, finding ways to adapt, and make sure I am staying calm and easy, and enjoying as much as I can along the way. sometimes the way is clean, sometimes it is a bit muddy and I have to clear it, but always it is a journey to making each day a positive success.

So as the sun sets on another day, what is your balancing act? how do you keep yourself centered and moving forward? How do you make sure that each day is a good day and that some days are even better? Find a path, find a way, and make it the best day ever, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and live it every day...

The sun sets on another day...

I look out to the sky, to the leaves, to the trees, to the fields, and to the beaches, sand, water, and everything else. I cannot find what I am looking for. I know it was there, there is proof, but it is eluding me, and I am waiting and watching. I am hoping I can find it soon.

An interesting statement. I say everything and nothing at the same time. The question is, what is it?

People like to surmises what it is a lot. Take the new movie Bird Box, we have people guessing at the monsters all the time. It could be anything. There are implied assumptions on many levels, but people take those further, and suddenly, assumptions are real. People say it, it becomes real. People pass it on, it is real, but what is it?

In my statement above, it is a Snow Owl in the area that is eluding me. (No, the picture above is not an owl) It could be anything, but in this case it actually is the Snow Owl that seems to go to Tahiti every time I try to find it. It is often when we are not seeking something we find it more easily. It is often when we are looking the other way that something astounding happens.

So, yesterday I am driving on the highway, and as I am driving I am on my headset talking to my daughter. As I drive I am concerned because it is twilight, and I am watching out for deer. (No, not sparkly vampires) Yes I am talking and intensely watching in front of me when I look out the drivers side door and a deer is running next to the truck. It was there, and keeping up and is it moved toward me, I floored the truck and sped ahead and the deer turned in behind me and scared the car behind me, but missed us both. I was looking for it all the time, and all the time it was there. I just was not looking in the right place. I would like to think this is the key. There are  a lot of solutions and hidden treasures out there, and if you just open your eyes and look, you will see them, sometimes where you are not looking.

This applies a lot to a lot of different things, whether it be happiness, a great job, love, money or a dozen dozen other things. there are solutions there we just have to look in the right place. For me, the owl is out there, but I just have not looked in the right place yet. Are you looking in the right place for your owl?

So as the sun sets on another day, when you are looking for something it may be where you are not quite looking yet. I know where to find pictures of the owl, they are here. I will get my own soon enough because there are always opportunities if you look for them. What you are seeking is most likely there (unless it is magical powers, then it might be there but you might be out of luck) Keep looking, find those opportunities, and enjoy them no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and find your dreams...

The sun sets on another day...

As the sunset tonight crimson shades flooded the sky. Pink's at blues and yellows mixed into a single light display that was both colorful and creative.

 It is always fun to look up at the sky and see light shining by us. There are so many possible ways we can be illuminated by the power of the Sun. Why is it then that we are not Illuminating everyone with our light? Each of us has within the power to lift up and shine our light on others. We choose how to approach each encounter and in doing so we either lift someone up, take someone down, or do nothing for them.

 For me this is a little disappointing. I have been told that I am far too friendly by many people but I would rather be remembered for lifting someone up and being friendly than be lost in trying to take someone down and being passive or unfriendly.

So how do you approach it? When you are feeling a little down do you attempt to drag others down or lift them on a pedestal and maybe ride higher with them? If you hear something negative do you repeat it or do you refute it? If a relationship has ended do you do your best to tear down the other person or do you try to lift them up so they can truly understand how you felt about them? 

It's my opinion that these are all good questions and of course there are hundreds more. We are faced with an opportunity just about every moment to lift someone up or tear them down. As we walk through life shouldn't we be the ones trying to lift someone up? I know a lot of very terrific people that also have negativity bound to their souls. These people sometimes tell the truth but more often embellish it for a better story in order to make themselves look better. This is not good for them or for the people they talked about. Instead eventually it only makes everyone look at situations and question themselves. Basically, it complicates the world. Don't complicate the world, let's try to simplify it.


So as the sun sets on another day, find a pathway to lift up others. Find a way to explain to others how important they are to you. Realize those people that you loved so deeply you still love deeply in some way. At some point  understand you must keep your glass half full and more each day. Take a moment and consider that people deserve to feel happy. Hold your tongue if what you want to say is not nice, and remember anything said may have a price. In the end be that person that rises above and shows what love, and life are all about, no matter what.

 Sleep sweet, live life, and love to the moon and back and the stars beyond...
