The Path Before You

20160716_150302

No longer a child and yet not an adult either

Caught in between and feeling frustrated

You don’t want to be treated with kid gloves

And yet you feel suffocated by the responsibilities

“Where am I headed?”, you wonder

 

The road ahead has many forks you could choose

The path before you is yours and yours alone

And, my son, do not let your mind worry so

There is no need to know your direction today

Just keep your eyes and options open

 

Both scared and excited about your future

You have many ideas about what you’d like to do

And unsure of which one to stick with

I truly believe that you’ll do quite well

No matter which path you choose

 

Don’t be afraid to listen to advice

Many have much wisdom to offer you

But, don’t let them dictate what you decide

In the end, your future is yours and not ours to lead

One foot in front of the other, one day at a time

God, Lead The Way Each Day

As the cold clings to my bones

Refusing to let its hold on me go

The sun shines, radiating off me a golden glow

Renewing within me a fierce hope

 

I have faced worse than this

And always have made it through

I know that there is joy in the days ahead

Realizing this, I no longer face this day with dread

 

Reflecting silently upon my life as it is

It’s not as hopeless as it might seem now and then

Even now, with the difficulties that lay before me

There is so much to be thankful for, more than I sometimes see

 

For every thing I can complain about

There is twice that at least that I can be grateful for

We can easily get wrapped up in the woes we face

It’s not always so easy to remember the beauty, love, & grace

 

But here I stand today, looking up at the sun

And instead of complaining about the cold chill in the air

Somehow I am able to be thankful for that great golden light

Today, I will fight all doubts, insecurities, and fear with all of my might

 

Each day, new struggles arise in the world

As the sun rises, I also face the demons from within

Sometimes I will fall flat on my face, not sure I can last the day

But, as each sun sets, I’ll see I made it because God led the way

Thank you

This is a picture I took at my friend’s daughter’s birthday party in September of 2012. The sun setting was just so beautiful. I thought I would share some warmth and joy with you before beginning my post.

I want to, again, say thank you for the support! Thank you for reading my stories, poems, and ramblings. Thank you for being a part of this! I have 70 followers now and I am so humbled by this. I feel weird calling you guys and dolls followers though, I am not some cult leader or something. So perhaps I will just call you my readers? Either way, thank you! When someone likes a post, it makes me smile. When someone leaves a comment, giving their feedback on what they think lets me know they really read what I had to say. When someone re-blogs what I posted, I know it made a lasting impression. 

I have said it before and I will say it again, I started this blog because a friend suggested that I share my life with others in the hopes that I might inspire and touch other’s lives. I don’t do this to boost my ego. The more people that subscribe to my blog doesn’t suddenly make me think I am just so amazing. I don’t do it for fame. I just want to make a difference. I want others to read what I have to say and to leave my page having felt something, having been inspired. I want you to laugh, smile, cry, hope, dream, and feel alongside me. 

A true artist doesn’t paint, sing, write, cook, etc simply for themselves. Yes, we enjoy what we do and it leaves us with pride and joy in our work. It brings us peace, makes us happy, allows us to express ourselves. But, we also want to share our work with others, to enjoy what we have created. A poem left unread, a painting left unseen, food left uneaten….that’s a shame. It should be enjoyed by others!

I view myself as an artist of sorts. My doodles leave something to be desired. I know I shall never have my work hung in museums. But as I said in earlier blog, art has many forms. I view my writing, singing, and photography as art. I even view my cooking as art sometimes. What I do is an extension of who I am. I share with you all so that you may get to know me. Look at the poems I write, the stories and even when it seems the main theme doesn’t fit me, if you delve deep enough, you will find a part of my soul within the words. Look at my photography, you will see what inspires me, what touches my life. Listen to me sing and you will hear my soul talking to you.

So yes, I share because I want you to know me and to make a difference and it seems that I have been able to accomplish both goals. Again, thank you for joining me in this. And of course, thank you for doing the same. I don’t do this simply to “hear myself talk” as it were. I joined this site to also join in on your journeys. I want to know you, to see what drives you, what inspires you. So, not only do I thank you for being a part of my life’s path, but thank you for allowing me to be a part of yours.
