Sunrise and sunset are good for me. I need them. They're also hard for me. They make me uncomfortable.
Sunrise and sunset remind me of the earth spinning completely around in this 24 hour period of one day. It's the only time of day when you can actually see the earth rotating, time passing.
It jolts me into reality. The days in my life are limited. It's sobering.
It's easier to stay busy, keep the adrenaline pumping, and pretend the days in my life have an endless supply. It's intoxicating.
The reality of it is tension. As time passes, my life passes, and the tension seems to be increasing.
It can bum me out. I can ignore it and pretend. I can let it motivate me to live fully.
Ignoring it is what I tend to do. Living fully is what I want to do.
