In spite of life’s challenges and those who will say you cannot do it , “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett ) for Life Is Now….
Time flies, and memories fade. People change and new friendships are made. Only the true remain forever at our side. Eventually the disappointment and pain will subside. It is all about the journey and what has yet to come. Life is what you make of it; you are what you've become. Life is too short to hold onto regrets. Forgiveness is key even though you may never forget. Cherish the good and remove the bad. Some people don't realize till it's gone what they've had. Moving on is a way of life. There will always be obstacles, pain, and strife. You must believe that you are strong enough to fight. You have to believe in yourself to do what is right. Always do for YOU no matter what you do, Because in the end the only one who has your back is you. Never be afraid to take a stand, And always be willing to lend a helping hand. A little bit goes a long way. All it takes is a smile to brighten someone's day. Your chance to live is now, so what are you waiting for? The world is yours for the taking and so much more. Endless possibilities are forever at your disposal. The chance to live another day is life's golden proposal. Never let anyone tear you down, And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown. So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again? Or will you rise up and make the light your friend? (Hollianne Boucher)“So stick to the fight when your hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit” (Wade Watts) and this is our fight song… 🙂
Yes, one doesn’t quit in spite of life’s storms “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown), unfortunately for the Valentines Day holiday it were a snow storm… 🙂
But, learned to dance (in the snow) and woke up this morning and words of Mark Twain filled my thoughts; “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover, acquire new friends and gain knowledge of yourself and the world” (Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain), so I gathered what I needed to venture into the world, when the need and opportunity arises, all the while keeping in mind the safety and welfare of others so they too can follow their dreams… 🙂
And no matter what life and Fate has put in front of me, it is down the path of life I go… 🙂 I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past.. Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make, Confronted with two paths to my destiny.. Heart and mind to decide which one to take. Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice… The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race, Like sheep, following a path determined by another… No self identity, all bearing the same face. A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few The rest to follow, ever so blind, Their destiny not chosen by their own hand Their fate determined, by a closed mind. The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown Where one can be different, like me I confess, Without fear of ridicule, bigotry and hate A path filled with love... and happiness. A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams An open mind to see what others do not, To live a life guided by one’s heart While the other path one cannot. Decision made, with eyes on the horizon It’s down the path least traveled I do venture, Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face Looking forward to a great adventure. My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure I do not know…. what my destiny will be, But one thing will be certain, written in stone I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“. ( Larry “Dutch” Woller)Yes, excitement fills the air and heart as here on the path it is a new age, a new year and a new dawn… 🙂
And as Jimmy Buffet would say “ I don’t look back too often for there is too much in front of me I wish to see” so I shall close for now, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂
I have friends to visit, adventures to find, so the sails are set full, heart’s compass pointed to the horizon and so it is… 🙂
