Have you ever considered how does nature impact you each day?
For example: Do you pay attention to or even know what time the sun rises and sets each day? OR do you recognize how you feel and begin the day when it is cold and rainy all morning? Compared to how you feel when you begin your day when the sun is shining and there is a clear blue sky?
There is a connection with all of us and how we are each influenced by our surroundings. We are all influenced emotionally by nature and whether we recognize these facts or not it is happening all the time many times throughout our day and night to each one of us.
I know that watching the sunrise out of the ocean is a magical moment for me. Every single time – it is magical. A close second is watching the sunset in the ocean. They are very different in terms of the feelings that are stirred up.
A beautiful sunrise sets the table for another great day. It is to begin the day with being grateful and in awe of the beauty of our world. I am prepared and looking forward to adding value to people and organizations in some small way today.
A sunset brings a warm peaceful close to the day. As the rainbow of colors are painted on the few clouds in the sky I know today I did my best. It is a reminder that tomorrow will bring another day to do more and to give more.
Here is the thing, the sunrise and sunset are happening each and every day whether you or anyone are paying attention to them or not.
Math and science have combined to calculate the exact time of each one depending upon where anyone is in the world. The work day is structured around daytime and night time for the majority of people.
What has happened is that over time populations have shifted into larger, denser communities and cities where the majority of people do not pay attention to the sunrise or the sunset. Unless they are directly impacted by the rain, the heat, a storm no one is paying any attention.
Meanwhile our human emotions are directly impacted by the sun, the moon, and our surroundings.
If this seems to be totally disconnected to the ship topics it’s not!
One thing no one aboard a ship ever loses track of each day is the awareness and the impact of the forces of the natural world upon each and every one of them.
This month the topic will be to focus on this subject. The world around us and it’s impact upon each one of us.
