Which path

Leave a comment

We decide our paths each day. Today I took the flat and easy path. One that allowed me to catch my breath. But also chase and be chased by my granddaughter, which made me lose my breath.

Word of an old co-worker passing way too early in life just came across my airwaves. News that makes you pause on the path and think for a while before moving onward.

That hard-working path has been one I’ve been on for far too long now. I’m looking to depart that train after a few more stops. I’ll be just as busy in retirement and maybe more so but what I’m doing won’t be work, more like a labor of love.

Sometimes silence is nice to walk down your path. But tomorrow I think I’ll add a little music to my path. Partly because I’ve already started that today. And music puts a pep in my step which is good for any stroll.

While you’re on the path make sure to look all around. A path has a trail but also sides and a sky. Don’t forget to focus on what is in front of you but also look around. There is special life and beauty along the way.

Walk that path at a different time of day and see a completely different side and life of it.

Be careful on any path you choose. There are obstacles on all trails.

Be proud of your path, even if it’s a different one each day.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Dance like you’re home alone when you’re home alone.
  • Powering through is an important asset in life.
  • As you age, moments become more important and meaningful along the way.
  • It’s time to make a decision about a fire pit for my patio.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
