The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Friendship ~ Love

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust

Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care.

Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart.

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart.

Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near.

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best.

Love is when you bring them the very best.

Friendship occupies your mind.

Love occupies your soul.

Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need.

Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side.

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.

Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares:

A tender laugh, which opens your heart,

A single touch that melts away your fears,

A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven,

A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

Friendship can survive without love.

Love cannot live without friendship.

Traveling from Wyoming to California on the back of a Goldwing, I reveled in the magnificence of the western skies; I marveled at the colors of the trees in Colorado as their leaves began to change from green into the brilliant reds and golds and oranges that signify the end of summer; I was entranced by the beauty of  the red rocks in Arizona and the peacefulness of the cabin and campground we stayed at with friends in Sedona; I looked in wonder as the terrain changed from desert to mountain, progressing  from mile after mile of saguaro cactus into the hairpin twists and turns of the mountainous roads.

As we traveled and marveled at the scenery and terrain changes, the feelings of having received a rare gift stayed with me and the feelings of gratitude filled my soul.

It seems our lives are made up of journeys. Some of our journeys are physical but mostly our lives are made up of emotional, philosophical and personal journeys.

These journeys may take on many different characteristics and their value may depend on the moments in which they occur. They may come in the form of lifestyle altering changes or they may come in the form of our reactions to the different crossings by the people who revolve in and out of our world.

I am one who believes that we attract into our world what is foremost in our thoughts… our emotions give these thoughts the power to manifest.

We are like a sponge that absorbs whatever it is that we are around and think of on a daily basis. As we become emotional about these thoughts, our world begins to reflect where our thoughts have led us. Only by changing our thoughts can we change our world.

 By looking at the manifestations of our world we are able to determine what our foremost thoughts, desires and loves truly are. By asking, we receive and by receiving we believe and by believing more manifestations are possible. It is a circle that begins and ends at a central starting point - what we believe.

When we begin the journey of living our life to the fullest, this circle becomes a comforting way to embrace and live our life. As we live our lives with love and admiration and gratitude for all that we have and for all that we can dream, we are then able to truly feel inner joy and happiness.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”

~Ernest Hemingway
