Life can be interesting if you watch the way it flows. You watch the way people interact with other people; how businesses work against each other and not together and how we are judged and criticized. But does this make your soul feel wealthy?
What happened to the promise of a handshake? A good word? A quick phone call not a text? Yes we live in the 21st century, but why do things that were once good and true have to change?
My mornings begin everyday before the sun rises, before the kids are stirring, and even the animals move. I’m a routine person, and I don’t want that changed. I have done the same thing every morning since I got my own place. Yes, I like routine. Lately I have started to take a different approach on how my mornings roll.
You see, I never really paid attention to the sunrise, unless I was in my deer stand. My focus has been on making money and keeping up with everyone else. Wait…what…yes I said that. How many times have you thought “oh I need to make xxx so that I can have xxx?” Did that truly make you happy? NO!!!
It has made me realize that my focus has been all wrong! I have the freedom to live the way I want. I have a wife and kids who are healthy and happy. Its not about how many jobs I get done in a day, week, or year. Its about the feeling of being rich in love with the life of freedom. I have the CHOICE to make my own day and every persons day I may come in contact with.
What about watching the sunset after a long day worth of work? Have you taken the time to just simply do that if your not a morning person? A sunset brings a feeling of wellness to me. A sense of accomplishment. A sense to take a moment and reflect on the day of craziness. If your around me much you definitely know that my phone goes off way to many times in a day. I have learned to leave my phone just so I can watch the sunset and be thankful for all that has been brought my way.
It’s so easy to take the day and just complain about all the negatives that have happened to you. As you watch the sunset think of the positives that happened for the day and how it made you feel. Not everyday will go our way but sharing more positive thoughts and energy can go a long way in this world of evil.
