as soon as i saw the prompt this week … i started singing

I’ve got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I’ve got to follow that dream to find the love I need

As a teenager, I was a follower, I did things that if I had my time over, I probably wouldn’t do, but I wanted to be liked and loved, and following the ‘cool kids’ seemed to be the way i could achieve that.

At 16 i followed my heart and left home, again, something I probably wouldn’t do if I had my time over, but not something I regret, as it shaped the woman I was to become. Who knew that  heart so young, didn’t really know what love was.

At 19 I followed my heart, and married the man who was to be my husband.  My heart knew that this was the real thing, that this was a love that would last, and it has, not without it’s ups and downs (many downs), but I always knew my heart knew this was the path I was to follow.

Somewhere in my 30’s, I discovered myself and stopped following others, I discovered I had views of my own, that I had a mind of my own and that I did not need to follow and be one of the pack. These views and beliefs have challenged many others, but I’ve stood by them, and have had people follow ME and my beliefs.

And here I am in my 40’s, still not a follower … still sticking to my beliefs and standing up for those without a voice …. but … still following my heart to be with the man i love 25 years later ….

  4. a story – everyone’s story. We all start out in one direction thinking we know it all and then find ourselves going directions we never expected. If we are lucky our choices land us where we needed to go. Sounds like yours did. Thank you for sharing it.

  5. i had a “happily ever after” before my hero died last year but i sure wasted a lot of time following dream frightmares before i arrived at the door to his heart – like so many others i had to prove i was a “know-it-all” first – your post calls up the happy years for me – wonderful!!!
