At the worst times in my life, I would often watch the sunset. Sunsets are comforting to me. Every sunset you see reminds you that another day is over, that you’re going to be living a day further in the future. I never even thought it was possible to be depressed by sunsets until someone first told me that they were the sign of a day ending, of the sum total of everything bad going on. Things are ending.
But I never saw them that way. Sunsets mean a day is ending, but that also means that no matter how bad the day was, it’s over now. Tomorrow is a new day, and whatever bad stuff happened during the day that’s ending, you’ll move away from it one sunset at a time. Every day marks a new beginning, a new start. We’ve lost, and we’ve faltered, and we’ve seen horrible things happen, but it’s not the world ending; it’s just this day. Each day forward is another day toward a better tomorrow.
Cheers to the end of this awful year, yes, but there’s another one coming up, and that means we have another shot at making it better. Let us know What Are You Playing in the comments.
