“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do…” (Pope John XXIII ) 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… 🙂 Me 1 copy ( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 ).. 🙂 “We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.” (Louisa May Alcott )… 🙂
 
  
 Destiny sits upon the morning horizon
 Always in site, but never clear
 And as I travel along the road I have chosen
 Destiny remains forever in place
 Sitting upon the morning horizon
  
 But as the years pass
 And the road spans the distance
 Between yesterday and tomorrow
 I know my destiny will arrive
  
 For time alone will close the gap
 So yesterday becomes dust filled memories
 And the horizon of tomorrow
 Will be the road of today
  
 For then, there will be no yesterday or tomorrow, only today
 And when that day arrives
 I will find peace and be complete
 For I will be one with my destiny

“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” ― Roy T. Bennett Hello Diary, Taking a break from making changes to share a few thoughts.. In today’s world life has thrown challenges into the mix, some that will require change to some degree… unfortunately, in today’s world there are those who do not want change “Life is a process of becoming… a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” (Anais Nin)…. Not here on the path for we are taking change in stride, in order to help make it a better place… when needed I wear a mask, for my health and for the consideration of others… 🙂

As I have said before, I have retired from driving, the need does not justify the means so goodbye to the auto… 🙂

By doing so I have accomplished two things, 1. I have reduced pollution and dependency on fossil fuels, hoping to help create a better environment for those who occupy this universe now and after I depart… I can leisurely order all I need online, have a better variety and have it delivered to my front door… when I need to venture about the village, I walk, getting the much needed exercise many pay good money for…. 🙂 2. I am no longer wasting money on something I really don’t need, money that I can use for things I do need or wish to have… I can also share some with others, as they deal with their life’s storms… I am a sustaining donor to the foodbank..

I help the children of the local children’s home realize their dreams…

I help people deal with cancer, virus, etc. to help others…

Why, I even help my backyard friends.. 🙂

It is not much but they know that someone cares and has their back.. “No matter the pain or suffering, it is always better if it’s a burden shared by two, instead of a weight carried by one alone”… 🙂 For communication I have a multitude of options to chat with folks all over the universe… I even have letter writing… 🙂

And “Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportioned to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I will recall that piece of knowledge and use it better. “ (Mark van Doren ), I have my Spanish lesson ( I know just enough to get me in a whole lot of trouble if I am not careful)…. 🙂

All that being said, I am not stressed nor live in fear of life’s storms, for “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown), or as Bea Arthur would say (from “The Unsinkable Molly Brown), I am unsinkable… 🙂 Yes, one does not have to do a great deal to adjust life and be happy “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right” (Mary Kay Ash).. well, have rambled enough, will close for now and work on some more changes, follow dreams and chase rainbows, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂 Yes, no stress or fear here, gazing at a blue horizon while chilling and sipping a bit of tea while thinking of those bare necessities… 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by!… sorry that you feel a bit mean but perhaps in time “that too shall go away”.. patience is the key word here, I believe, I have a lifetime to get it right, then again maybe I never will… “A home that is built with patience, understanding and love will withstand the strongest winds of difficulties and conflict , a home built with a closed mind, insincerity or haste will collapse in a mere breeze of discontent.” (Larry “Dutch” Woller ).. 🙂

      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)

  1. Thanks for wearing a mask, Dutch. Some of us are so focused on our individual rights that we forget that we share space with countless other people who are essential for our well-being. Your generosity is inspiring ❤ Enjoyed the song, "Bare Necessities" 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by and glad you enjoyed your visit!!.. there are those few who use their “rights” as a coverup to the fact they simply do not wish to wear a mask… 🙂

      Hope all is well in your part of the universe and until we meet again..
      May your spirit only know peace
      May your heart only know love
      May all your dreams come true
      May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
      And life is all that you wish for it to be….
      (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  3. It’s awesome that you don’t drive and are able to walk to the village for your needs and wants. Your post gives me courage and inspiration to enjoy the present. I’ve always enjoyed the “Bare Necessities.” song.

      Until we meet again..

      May you always be blessed
      with walls for the wind,
      a roof for the rain,
      a warm cup of tea by the fire,
      laughter to cheer you,
      those you love near you,
      and all that your heart might desire.
