“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂

Hello Diary,

Yes, life’s challenges can produce many fears, should one let it… again, by being different and following one’s heart, the fears are muted… and here on the path, with the heart filled with dreams and the mind being open, not dictated to by ideology, happiness is found in spite of life’s challenges… 🙂

 

Happiness is to have loved
Than have not loved at all,
To share love with another
To always heed one's heart call.

Happiness is to follow one's dream
To be who one wishes to be,
To live one's own life one's own way
Not live the life of another, you see.

Happiness is always waking up on
The green side of the grass,
Even though the day may be stormy
Knowing it too shall pass.

Happiness is knowing another
A understanding, caring friend,
Someone to share life's memories with
A friendship to never end.

Happiness is to pen thoughts
Let the fingers do the walking,
Thoughtful words that come  from within
Because the heart does the talking.

Happiness is knowing when to end a poem
For it is down life’s highway I need to venture,
To gather more memories and thoughts to share
As I live, and enjoy,  tomorrow's new adventure.
                   (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

So I choose my dreams over fears… 🙂 And thank you heart for allowing me to be me, to follow my dreams and to know happiness… 🙂

Thanks for letting me feel love
Be it joy, or be it heartache,
To know someone’s love
A treasured feeling their love did make.

Thanks for letting me live life
To explore, to follow one’s dream,
To seek out and live every adventure
Not enough time in the day... it did seem.

Thanks for letting me meet friends
To share thoughts of love, hope..perhaps a tear,
And by going down the path together in friendship
Doing away with hate, anger….and fear.

Thanks for giving me the courage
To follow my own path...to be me,
To not follow someone else’s path
To live my own….. reality.

Thanks for giving me an open mind
As I venture down the path... allowing me,
To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small
That many others do not see.

Thanks for giving me an open heart
Able to love, understand and forgive,
And when I grow too old to dream
A place where my memories will live.

Yes, I have much to be thankful for
And every day the list gets longer... you see,
As I venture down the path least traveled
Searching for what destiny... has waiting for me.
            (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” (Audrey Hepburn)
Well, I had better close for now, some of life’s storms to deal with, “I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.” (Louisa May Alcott) and dreams are a calling… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

Hope all your dreams come true and until we meet again..

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your heart only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  1. Once again, you’ve hit the nail on the head with “the mind being open, not dictated to by ideology”. The worst thing you can do is to follow an ideology such as a religion, a system of political beliefs,anything that stops you thinking for yourself.
    It will rob you of the greatest thing we humans possess. Individuality, the ability to be different from every previous human being. To use your own brain, not rely on somebody else’s
