“Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.” (Shannon L. Alder ) on the path least traveled…

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂

Buenos Dias Diary (practicing my Spanish 🙂 ),

Woke up this morning to a quiet morning on the path but a world in turmoil with crises, hate, anger and closed minded elements of world’s societies putting challenges in one’s path along with the weather, climate, etc… does make it difficult to follow one’s dreams at times but one may as well be who they are for one will not be happy being someone else… “It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” (Agnes Repplier )… 🙂

Soooooooooooo, I venture down the path being me…. 🙂

I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
Heart and mind to decide which one to take.

Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
No self identity, all bearing the same face.

A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few
The rest to follow, ever so blind,
Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
Their fate determined, by a closed mind.

The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
Where one can be different, like me I confess,
Without fear of ridicule, bigotry  and hate
A path filled with love… and happiness.

A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams
An open mind to see what others do not,
To live a life guided by one’s heart
While the other path one cannot.

Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
Looking forward to another great adventure.

My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
But one thing will be certain, written in stone
I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“.

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” (Steve Jobs)….

And that being said, I shall close for now, Diary…. Not only adventures and dreams but the laundry and mowing… But I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise.. 🙂

Remember, Diary..

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit!
(Wade Watts)

  1. “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life” How many children are forced to choose their career because their father or mother wanted to do that job but failed.
    You are right, choose your own life , follow your own path.

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. while parenthood no doubt plays a role, I believe the most pressure comes from society, especially those that are predominately faith based.. 🙂

      Hope all is well with you and yours and life is all that you wish for it to be…

    • Thank you for stopping by and glad you enjoyed your visit!.. 🙂

      Until we meet again..
      May flowers always line your path
      and sunshine light your way,
      May songbirds serenade your
      every step along the way,
      May a rainbow run beside you
      in a sky that’s always blue,
      And may happiness fill your heart
      each day your whole life through.
      May the sun shine all day long
      Everything go right, nothing go wrong
      May those you love bring love back to you
      And may all the wishes you wish come true
      (Irish Saying)
