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

“You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last chapter.” (Author Unknown )…

 

 I watched that heavy door begin to close,
 all the while the winds above me rose.
 The years whisper and whistle back into my ear,
 the memories haunted by sorrows and fear.
  
 With a new day it finally dawned on me,
 the past needed locking and I had the key.
 Leave it behind, leap and fly away free,
 let the winds of change blow and carry me.
  
 Feel them lifting my wings now able to soar,
 up to an open sky and caged no more.
 Flying so fast to where no hurt can find,
 a place of peace now inhabits my mind.
  
 This heart full of courage never ceases to beat,
 knowing my history is not destined to repeat.
 Clear paths now lead me to a new destination,
 for my life, my future and the next generation.

Yes, there are elements of world’s societies that may and/or will not be accepting of changes I make or have made to live life, to be me, but as Bon Jovi says “it is my life” “When someone tells you “you’ve changed”, it might be because you have stopped living your life their way”.. (John Pence)… 🙂

Hello Diary,

 

Thought I would share some thoughts about change and wealth… the idea came after visiting the CNN news page.. They had posted the question; “When the pandemic is over, will your spending change? Share your thoughts” ( CNN)…. I gave it some thought and gave them my reply;

“Change is constant and ongoing… all creatures, great and small, face changes every day… in 2020 the weather, climate, pandemic, election has influenced that change and I believe the “normal” that everyone refers to no longer exists, has become a part of history… therefore, on a daily basis I make minor adjustments (changes) to hopefully prepare for the “new normal”, if in fact there will ever be a “normal”…. 🙂

One of those adjustments is determining what I need to have for a healthy, quality life and that determines my spending habits… my spending will be determined by what challenges and changes life puts in front of me, so, like life, my spending, along with everything else,  will be constantly changing… if I do not change/adjust, there is not doubt in my mind that I will go the way of the dinosaur… “  (Larry “Dutch” Woller)….  🙂

 

In the past, I have mentioned a number of things I have done for change… as far as wealth and spending, well, I am wealthier by far and spend for what I need and nothing more, for happiness does not come from wealth… 🙂 (photo taken last summer)… 🙂

 

 I’m far richer than the rich
 Wealthier than the wealthy by far,
 I have gold in the sun
 I have silver in the star.
  
 I have dreams that I follow
 That are more precious than gold,
 As I venture through life
 Eagerly watching, the dreams unfold.
  
 I have diamonds, too many to count
 With each new fallen snow,
 As I see each one sparkle
 While basking in the suns glow.
  
 The mornings bring nature’s painting
 Priceless, a portrait of the sky,
 Impossible to duplicate
 Even though many did try.
  
  Each bloom of the red rose
 A ruby, one of a kind,
 With the bloom of the white rose
 A pearl comes to mind.
  
 Money have I little
 But wealth I have got,
 But  I don’t fit in with
 The wealthy and rich lot.
  
 But I’m not going to change
 A wealthy dreamer I’ll stay,
 Until  the rivers, they all run dry
 Until  the four winds, they all blow away.
                        (Larry “Dutch” Woller )
  
   

Yes, a wealth that cannot be touched or spent, but felt with the heart, in a world for… 🙂

 

 

Lovers…. 🙂

Dreamers.. 🙂

And me… 🙂

And it is a wonderful world indeed…. 🙂

And I shall close for now, venture out into that wonderful world filled with new adventures and wonders to behold… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

And, until we meet again, whatever life path or trail you choose… 🙂
