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.

About

IMG 0440 300x215 About The Bohemian Review is an online blog and magazine of sorts. It has always been a dream of mine to travel the world, meet interesting people, discover inspiring ideas, open my heart,  mind and soul to whatever comes my way and live life to the fullest.

For the first two decades of my life I lived, I loved and I prospered. I had a good foundation and an excitement and love for life. I had dreams for the future and all of the confidence to conquer the world.

The next two decades were spent losing myself in the obligations that I had made for myself and my life and adapting to what I thought the “world” expected of me. I gave up pieces of myself until I was only a shell of what I wanted to be and who I had once dreamed I could be. The loss of self confidence and the loss of ones’ personal identity are tragedies that sometimes happen and then life becomes a chore instead of a glorious pleasure.

Now, thanks to once again finding myself, the last couple of years have been a whirlwind of adventures. I have traveled and opened myself up to experience the things that I once dreamed about. I am forging on a mission to live my life the way I want it to be lived and to make decisions that lead me in the direction of my dreams. I am happy and confident and excited each day when I wake up. Life is such a wonderful gift.

    You deserve to be happy, my friend! I, for one of many, feel that you deserve it. Sometimes our lives take different directions than what we had once thought they should have, and I am grateful that you have finally found true happiness. You are now and always have, the best friend that anyone could have. Even though we are on opposite sides of the country, I always feel closer to you with a phone call or e-mail than I do with a room full of people. Your love of life and freespirit eminates as bright as the sun. Always remember and never again forget, that no one can bring you down to the point of losing yourself. I love what you are doing here and I love you always. Girls these days use the term BFF’s, I believe that it is safe to say after 30 some odd years, that you are my true BFF.

    Thanks Donna ~
    You have always tried to tell me to be true to myself, finally I have begun to listen. We all need to realize that when we give up pieces of ourselves to make others happy we end up only postponing the inevitable unhappiness of both ourselves and the ones we are trying to protect.
