The Good in Goodbye

the sea, the banca and the setting sun - This was taken by my bestfriend in my primary years. I just love how the sea, the banca and the setting sun were put together in a picture.

Sunsets mark the end of the day. It's like kissing your life goodbye for the day. To some, goodbyes are sure a hard thing, like ending a relationship, quitting a job, death of loved ones and many others. They say that there's a good in goodbyes....that goodbyes are not as awful as it seems. And for such a nature-lover as me, I can see the good in goodbyes in the beauty of a sunset....

I do love to watch sunset. It always mesmerize me. There is always a feeling of undefined sorrow probably because of the dimming light and yet you feel glad that you are a witness to such beauty and grandeur. You are awed because you are emerged in the beauty of your surroundings with the golden sky turning into red and pink and dark orange as the dimming ball of fire sets into the horizon. Sunset always remind me of the greatness of God and how He wonderfully made all creations. Watching the beauty of the setting sun made it a lot easier to say goodbye to all of the day's frustrations - be it losing a job or losing a love one.

Yeah. I know that feeling. That's also what I feel about sunsets. You're right, for me, sunsets are the most marvelous creation of God, next to man of course. How the color of the sky changes from yellow to orange and pink and red and violet then gray....wow, it's just like a magical moment to me. And yes, though there's that undefined sadness we feel deep within, I still feel the love of our God through the beauty of the sunset.

Thanks for the best response mark! I appreciate it! I was inspired by your writing because it gives hope in spite of lost and the sunset depicts it best.

yes but if you had to say goodbye to your parents or husband or boyfriend or child and not see them again would you still do it so easily, a sunset lives but comes back again, a real goodbye is never coming back.

Sunset - Beautiful sunset taken in Pangasinan, Philippines.
Yes, sunset is beautiful and there are so many pictures of sunset taken everywhere in the world. It means a lot, differing from the outlook of an individual to another. For me, I just love to look at the sun setting and any picture of sunset.

Were you the one who took that shot? It's so lovely! I also have a shot of a sunset in Pangasinan and I therefore conclude that sunsets there are really amazing......and breathtaking!

I hate to say goodbay to people I love but is not a problem to say goodbye to those you do not care about. so depends a lot on the situation.

Your friend has captured the beauty of the sunset there. And seeing that, I agree that there is really good in goodbyes. I also love sunsets. Too bad I didn't have really nice pictures of it. Maybe I should start taking pics of sunsets soon! :)

If goodbye is a permanent greeting to someone then I see no good in it. I absolutely hate leaving someone forever and would dread such a goodbye. but if it just wishing someone at the end of a meeting then Im ok with it.
