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.

The Fairytale ~

Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale of all.
~ Hans Christian Andersen

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.       ~ Albert Einstein 

I grew up believing in fairytales. I grew up believing in happily ever after and the kind of romance that all of these stories contained. I believed that our lives could be all that we could imagine and more. I believed life was a treasure and a gift and this lifetime was meant for exploring and experincing and enjoying.

As I grew older and began to take notice, I realized that few people I knew seemed to have this kind of zest for life and heartfelt love for each other. I began a search, even at a young age, to discover why…

Why is it that over time the loves that seem so sure, so complete, allow themselves to fall by the wayside and become just an existence without the magic?

Is it just human nature that drives us to push away the ones we love the most? Is it as a kind of protectant for our souls or a way to change the one we are with into who we wish they would become?

I’ve come to realize that for most people their lives become their work and their obligations. They have  “learned the art of compromise” for their values, their way of life and their soul. They give up who they are to fullfill what others believe them to be in order to conform to what the world sees as “normal or sane” behavior.

To thine own self be true. ~ Shakespeare

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.     ~ Albert Einstein

I wonder how we can be true to ourselves without hurting the ones we love;  how can we break away from the conformity of the world without it being in a brash and caotic way and without it ending up hurting ourselves and others along the way?

I ask myself if it is possible to live the fairytale, to take each day and form it into the stories we want remembered long after we are gone. Is it possible to be brave enough to trust and believe that it all will work out and there will be not only a happy ending but a happy here and now and always?

Maybe each person’s life becomes what they choose to believe it will become.

Maybe each of us has the chance to live out our own fairytale if we choose to believe.

Maybe just maybe;

For those of us who believe in the fairytale, the story continues…

Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet. ~ Victor Hugo
