From the moment we enter this world we each begin our own journey to discovering who we are and, hopefully, to lead rewarding lives and stay true to ourselves.  It’s easy for so many of us to lose our way, to get distracted by others or feel pressured to veer off our true paths and do what others feel is right for us.  However if we remember to stay true to ourselves, to remind ourselves of our own true desires and who we really are; to remember that we all have our own individual and unique talents, that we all have our own strengths and cares, and to make sure we stay true to everything we are and can be, then  we can all lead a beautiful and rewarding life.

The following is this message of the beautiful path represented in flower form, although I hope you can see the importance in the message that we all should take and remain on our own beautiful path, no matter how long that journey takes or what anyone else may think of say.  Have a lovely day everyone. ❤ 🙂

The Beautiful Path

©The Strawberry Post

A lonely bud, contents confined,
Layers of hope not shown.
The world not seen, currently blind,
Untainted, newly sown.

Open self, begin to unwind,
Venture to unknown.
New of heart, new of mind,
Unique, not a clone.

Strength, courage, need to find,
To stay on path unblown.
Remain true, self unmined,
Until fully grown.

No matter, early or behind,
Path direct, windblown.
Life lead the heart assigned,
True beauty always shown.
