“While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy” (Author Unknown) 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 🙂 ).. 🙂 I have been ask numerous times about my thoughts on being a friend.. I believe Adam Clarke says it best… 🙂

 

 "Portrait of a Friend"
 
 I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts, 
 or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will 
 search for answers.
  
 I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,
 nor the future with its untold stories.
 But I can be there now when you need me to care.
  
 I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
 I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
 
 Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
 Yet I can share in your laughter.
 
 Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
 I can only support you, encourage you,
 and help you when you ask.
 
 I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
 from your values, from me.
 I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.
 
 I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
 But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
 room to be yourself.
 
 I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
 But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
 and put them back in place.
 
 I can't tell you who you are or who you will be
 I can only love you and be your friend
                                       (Adam Clarke)
  
   
Hello Diary, Taking a brief break with a busy week, stopping briefly to share some thoughts… change is in the winds in many ways in today’s world and one of those changes is the seasons… and it is that time of year where I participate in one of my least favorite outdoor activities…. 🙂

The sad part is most of the leaves belong to my neighbor and my neighbor is in the process of moving to another town.. Sniffffffffffffff 😦 but will deal with the leaves and enjoy the day in the garden and backyard here on the path… 🙂
 
 I live in a not so secret garden
 Along the path least traveled,
 Quite unlike the other world
 A world that has become unraveled.
  
 A garden of peace and harmony
 Being different does not matter here,
 All creatures, big and small, living together
 Unlike the other world,  they do not live in fear.
  
 Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
 Not sure, or dwell, on our final destiny,
 But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
 That is what life is about, don’t you see.
  
 So into the not so secret garden I will venture
 Along the path least traveled, 
 To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
 Unlike the other  world unraveled.
                        (Larry “Dutch” Woller  )
  
   
Well, I had better close for now.. The day is yet to finish and there are dreams to follow… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂 Until we meet again, should one mingle with the leaves with a open mind and heart, one may even find love!.. 🙂
 

 “Never say I love you
 If you really don’t care,
 Never talk about feelings
 If they really aren’t there.
  
 Never hold my hand
 If your going to break my heart
 Never say your going to
 If you don’t plan to start.
  
 Never look into my eyes
 If all you do is lie
 Never say hello
 If you really mean goodbye.
  
 If you really mean forever
 Then say you will try,
 If not, then never say  forever
 Cause forever makes me cry

  1. The first part about perfect and imperfect people is so true. We expect life to be easy and perfect. We should set our sights a little lower and play the hand we’re dealt instead of moaning about what we are supposedly are entitled to.

    • Thank you for stopping by!… Yes, if the world would accept one as they are, who they wish to be, rather than try to create another to their conceived image, this world would be a better place… 🙂

      Hope all is well in your part of the world and life is all that you wish for it to be!… 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. While I do agree about perfect, one should be able to better oneself and not settle for less… “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” -( Michel Angelo)… 🙂

      Hope all is well in your part of the universe and life is all that you wish for it to be.. 🙂
