Road Less Traveled

People are always trying to give me advice, Meg.. I think you should wait. Meg.. I don’t think that is in your best interest. Do we follow our instinct or do we listen to the advice given by others? It’s a tough decision. It can be a constant battle within ourselves to choose what we think is the right decision. Sometimes, there is never a right decision. It’s a matter of taking a path that has once been traveled or taking the path less traveled. One trail has a beautiful path already made for you. You can follow it knowing its safe, your protected and will get to where you ‘suppose’ to go. But, the road less traveled.. what does it entail? Goodness, the mystery of it all can be quite overwhelming. The emotions of feeling overwhelmed;  anxiety, stress, fear of the.. unknown. That word is scary isn’t it? The unknown. It must lead to scary things. Do we know? How will we ever know what the road less traveled has for us? What if that road never ends? A life filled with unknown adventures. I think that is life that I am living. It can scare some people. In fact, it worries most. I have been described as free-spirited, somebody who flies by the seat of her pants. To some that can translate in irresponsibility. But, I disagree. It’s a beautiful thing that society can allow you to not participate in the traditions of what life has expected for you. What do people expect you ask? I am not sure. I cannot meet up to the expectations of others and neither can you. We have the freedom to make decisions that we feel are best for us. What we can do is dare ourselves to live the life we imagine. If people doubt you, trust in yourself that what you are doing is right for you. The next time somebody questions your decisions tell them, “I am taking the road less traveled and making it my own.”

Cheers to being you.

Peace and Love,

Meg

Inner Beauty

I’m a girl, that hopes to make a difference in the world. By learning to love myself and loving others unconditionally. You are beautiful now and forever is something I truly believe. True inner beauty never fades.

Everything we want and everything we need is and always will be free. Go on a walk, hike, bike ride, anything outside; you’ll find that the true healing is from Mother Nature. Where there is peace everywhere, the beautiful flower growing from the ground; the wind, rain, everything is against that little flower, but it still stands? I put a question mark on that because I want you to think how and why? It is meant to be beautiful; it stands tall because that is what Mother Nature intended it to be. But why? It grows in dirt. Odds are against it, yet it still stands and continues to grow. We have so much to learn from the Earth, why look to human beings; society to set the examples for us? You have one life to live, please, don’t waste it allowing your thoughts to tell you things you are not. We all are beautiful, interesting, different. Love it. Nature intended you to be that way, love the beauty in it. I think it’s wonderful to try to better ourselves, but to think we’re not worthy of being beautiful and confident without material things is truly sad to me. Any time you start to question who you are, just think, “There is no one else like me. I am one of a kind.” Even identical twins have different personalities. That is our truest gift; the freedom of our thoughts and the freedom to be who we want to be. Embrace yourself. Don’t waste your life trying to please others, love yourself and others will be drawn to that. I look at it as a puppy, if you can love a puppy, feed, water and love it unconditionally just because it’s alive, then why can’t I do the same for myself? After all, love is the key to true success.

~I am dedicating this to you. When you feel as if there is nothing left; Look within.
