Here's to the sun...

As I was sitting on my back patio the sun caught my eye shining thru this pine. Of course I've seen the sun multiple times in different scenarios--but this night it was a bright orange ball of fire. It was so intense, so bright and so powerful it held my attention. ☀

I know the color is due to the fires, but it never ceases to amaze me how nature adapts to all of it. The sun doesn't quit shining--it just shines differently. It still rises every day and sets every evening NO MATTER WHAT!! It reminds me to be more adaptable, more flexible. The fires have been tough on all of us. The smoke fills the air and our lungs but we HAVE to adapt.

The message I keep going back to is that LIFE is tough. 😥 Am I going to adapt? Am I going to get up every day and make it a great day? Am I going to quit, cave in to it? HELL NO! Life goes on just like the sun rises and sets. I get to choose to adapt, sink or SAIL!

Rise, shine, set and do it all over again! 😎
