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.

I Remember ~

As another summer winds to a close I remember…

I remember Bavaria.

I remember the boat ride along the Rhine River with the wind blowing in my hair. I remember gazing out at the passing castles and reflecting on the beauty that was before me. I remember how much I wanted to stay in this beautiful country and savor every moment.

 My European vacation was coming to a close and I felt deep in my heart that this trip was momentous and would be the beginning of a complete revamping of my life. We were aboard the Loreley, named after a rock along the Rhine River that marks the narrowest point on the river between Switzerland and the North Sea. It is also the name of a beautiful German poem about the enchanting Loreley who is betrayed by her beloved and is accused of bewitching men and causing their deaths.

I remember feeling the awakening in my heart and the realization that, although I was alive, I had not truly lived in years. There was a deep sadness in my soul and though I couldn’t quite figure out how to be happy,  I knew that there must be a way.

I began a realization that all my decisions and thoughts and actions had brought me to this point in my life and only by changing these thoughts would I be able to change my life.

This five year anniversary marks a milestone for me. I am extremely grateful that I am now surrounded by positive people who I love and who love me in return.  Amazingly, I do wake up every morning giving thanks for the wonderful life that I now share with these special, special people and know that I am truly blessed.

I am trying to adopt a  “joy de vivre”  attitude…  living life to the fullest and truly having an embulliency for life. I can’t think of a better way to greet each day. We are, after all, only given a small moment in time to make our mark.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.    ~ Albert Einstein            

As darkness is a passing shadow, and light
is a substance that remains, so sorrow is
fleeting, but joy abides for ever. Do not think your sorrow will remain;
it will pass away like a cloud. ~ James Allen

I believe in happily ever-afters, I believe that if I can have faith and believe, my dreams will come true.

I believe that love is truly the answer and I believe that our life is whatever we choose it to be.

Yes, I believe in magic and in miracles.
