I Always Walk My Own Path

    No one shall ever tell me what path I should

    take or what is best for my "skills". Growing up I was a very shy child with a learning disability (that will never go away, it is who I am). Most teachers and parents believed that my life was going to be challenging and that I would never be able to live a normal life with a...

    Something to be said

    for a well trodden path but it gives one great satisfaction to blaze their own bringing the same results just less traffic. Whew what a feeling! But again I have always marched to the tune of a different drummer

    I am walking a difficult path,

    but it is my path and my life. I will always try to do the right thing, for myself and my family. But it is not your life to live it is mine. I do not need to be rescued. I do not need to be told that I have to 'do the right thing'. There are no easy answers, there is only...

    I don't follow, not just someone.

    ..I don't follow anyone or any path. I carve my own through life. I follow my heart, staying true to my beliefs and values. But I am a leader not a follower. The road ahead is uncertain, but isn't it more fun when your off the map and out of your comfort zone?

    The Journey.

    At one point, my path seemed so clear. Somewhere along the winding road before me, I seem to have deviated. Sometimes it feels like I'm so far from where I wanted to be that I'll never find my way there. Much akin to being lost in the woods on a moonless night, I stumble...

    An ode to the howling wolf.
