“When one suddenly finds oneself in a swamp up to one’s armpits in alligators, it is difficult to remember the objective was to drain the swamp” 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  🙂 ).. 🙂

Yes, life can be like that swamp from time to time, but “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 d0” (Pope John XXIII )… and don’t give up…  🙂

 

Hello Diary,

Have had a busy week along with dealing with life’s challenges but today will stop the world briefly, relax for a bit with a spot of red wine and thank destiny for the life I have had, in spite of the ups and downs, tears and smiles, that has given me many memories to store in my heart for when I grow too old to dream…  🙂

 

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
But 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)
Well, I had better close for now… wine at the ready, Kindle at the ready, some relaxing music in the air.. But I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

Hope destiny has been kind to you, you have many wonderful memories to help you through the dark days 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.

  1. Your title makes you sound like somebody who has been asked to drain more than his fair share of swamps!
    I really enjoyed reading the idea “Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do”.
    That may be a pretty good way to approach old age and its “challenges” as they are called nowadays.

    • Thank you for visiting!!.. I have had more than my share of alligators!.. just because we are old doesn’t mean we are done, especially with today’s technology… 🙂

      Until we meet again..
      May your troubles be less
      Your blessings be more
      And nothing but happiness
      Come through your door
