Until The Sun Sets

When we awake each morning, it's as if we have so much to do but so little time. We try to fit as much as we can within our waking hours and even then time goes by so quickly. No matter what we have scheduled, we always end up with something more to do. Why we try to do so much is the question that we never seem to wait for an answer. It may be because we're too busy to listen. Filling our day is not a bad thing, but at the end of the day what have we accomplished. If all is a blur, then we may need to stop for awhile and assess what it is that we are truly trying to do. We will always have busy days, but when the sun sets we need to make everything right within ourselves. Let the day begin knowing that we have an opportunity to make each moment count. And let us be grateful for all that we have accomplished as the sun slowly sets before us. Today is your day. You control how your day will be. Let no one take away the joy that is within you. Embrace not only the sunrise in the early morning, but the beautiful sunset that ends each day in a special way.
Stop hiding, experience life...
(I love watching the sun set over the ocean. The colors explode over the water and it's at that moment that everything seems perfect. It's an especially quiet time that makes me feel alone. All the busyness of the day disappears. No matter who I am with, it's as if it's just me and the sunset for those few minutes. I think no matter where you experience the sun setting, if you jot down your thoughts on paper, at that moment, you will be surprised at what you find. Share your writing with someone close to you.)
