A Path Is Right, As Long As It's Ours
There are always two paths a heart can take. Each one seasoned with its own challenges. Yet, when our discussion has been made to follow one route, we always seem to find mistakes in the journey we choose. Often, we say that we should have gone the "other" way instead. However, we fail to see that no matter what road we follow we will always find fault in it - if we allow it to find us. No matter what the adventure ahead may bring, you can rest assured that our hearts are always ready to embark upon it.
I finally understand the reason behind why my heart and mind are always at odds with one another. My heart has always been (and will always remain) childlike, whereas my mind must take on a "parental role". Yet, it has always been obvious that my life has been governed by my heart-ranking majority seats within the house. I've often referred to this syndrome as: "The Curse of the Artist"
Being a former singer/musician and now a writer, my path has always been one of a dreamer. Yet lately, I find that my mind has begun to convince my heart to oversea the "day to day" operations, while still promising to promote "dreamer-like qualities". So far, all is well in Denmark!
Over the past few months I've realized that the magical thing about life is that it always plays out, whether we are ready for it or not. It's made up of great moments (both good and bad) and I am learning to be happy to have the opportunity to travel along each path. I now am beginning to understand that chaos can grow in magnitude if we allow it the energy of our thoughts (both positively and negatively). But, that love too, can grow in the same manner. Life is not everlasting, but our memories and experiences can transcend through time. We can savor them by being open to life as it unfolds.
I've been trying to find new "motto's" for life everyday. In doing so, it forces me to trick my old "behavioral patterns" to shift from a negative realm into a positive state.
Today's motto - Remembering to do whatever makes ME happy, as often as possible. To maintain a healthy lifestyle because happiness means nothing when you cannot enjoy it with 100% vitality. To be kind to others even when it's hardest to do so and to be a bit of a better human being, everyday.
