Decisions, decisions!

Life is all about making decisions, taking decisions. Some big and some small… some that can veritably shape the future of the world or just your own destiny. Decisions can scare us… they scare me. It’s not that I’m not sure of myself, I’m just anxious I can’t always control the outcome. Shows that I’m quite the Virgo!

Still, we need to make decisions and sometimes take a leap of faith. Despite being a control freak, there’s a part of me that’s always loved taking chances. The thrill of the unknown is exciting and often appealing. I like a new challenge and willing to accept it head on. Life needs to keep moving. Sometimes, it makes absolute sense to venture into the unknown and see where it goes from there….which brings me to one my favorite poems… A cliché, I know!

The Road Not Taken ~ Robert Frost
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.

The personal touch of blogs

2015-06-30 21.08.06-1

I really enjoy reading blogs. Many of them are informative, many reflective, some with pictures and some with poetry. But, the thing I like most about blogs is the personal touch. Every post will have a writer’s opinion and convey a piece of themselves, even if it’s their alter-ego. I enjoy connecting with how people think and feel. I realize that I am not alone in many of habits or thoughts. Makes us all a little more human in a world where we seem to have lost a lot of it.

Forgotten

He was supposed to be long forgetten. Yet, I still keep remembering him.

It took us 12 years to tell each other. 

That it was love… it was always love. We were too afraid to say it before. 

And even when we did.. “it was just that the time was wrong”

And now he should be just forgotten, yet I can’t forget it now. 

Read: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

I watched the movie a long time ago. Needless to say Jack Nicholson was superb. But I thought about reading the book because I had heard it wasn’t quite the same. Well, I had heard right. The book is much different from the movie.

It’s not a short book and as I read it I came to enjoy the characters very much. I have to say the book actually made me laugh out loud in some places. Nurse Ratched was a real villain! But, it’s also a sad story… Definitely a classic to read

So glad I read

I was at an event today for my daughter. I had absolutlely nothing to do except sit and wait. I’m so glad I had my Kindle. I actually managed to get through quite a good portion of my book and I didn’t waste battery or need data! I’m so grateful that I’m  a reader.

Thank you…363 followers

I thought my 365th post should be a shout out and a heartfelt “Thank You” to all my followers. I’ve been trying to keep up this blog for a while. I’ve lost track, been silent but always found my way back. All this for one reason…. I enjoy interacting with my followers. The number is not huge… I know there are bloggers with much higher stats. But I am grateful for each and every person who does take the time to read my blog. There are so many people out there in the world with so much to say, the fact some people read what I have to say, just makes my day! So once again…. THANK YOU!
