Lost the Path, But Not My Way 

“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not clichés but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.” – Phillip Sweet

There are times when I have stumbled and lost my way. This does not apply to my day to day activities. Oh no, it is about my dreams and future desires. For the road to our dreams is long, challenging, and unexpected. Our dreams are often at odds with our realities, demanding freedoms and resources we may not have. But this doesn’t make them impossible to achieve.

Lost The Path, Not My Way Acrylic Abstract by Red, 24"x24", Gallery Wrap Canvas, Room View

I believe the path from dreams to success does exist. Feeling unsure and lost is part of my path. I need to continue with my vision to find it, to have the courage to ignore the naysayers, and have the inner strength and perseverance to follow it.

For I know, I will always have obstacles and challenges, many daunting, where I may slip and lose my way, but in the end with belief in oneself and desire to hold on to my dreams, I will find my way.

Perhaps, I need to follow Venus Williams quote: “I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest”.

The painting titled “Lost the Path, But Not My Way” is soothing with it warm colors and dense foliage – like a walk in the forest to refresh our minds, connect with nature and remember that we may not see the path ahead of us clearly, we may even stumble and temporarily lose our way; but with belief in our aspirations, we will find the way to our dreams.

“If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn’t lead anywhere.” – Frank A. Clark

    I think one of my favorite paintings is “Lost the path but not my way!”..In our lives we all have paths to choose to help realize what life is all about! Invoking dreams and aspirations we all wish to obtain..when I study the painting my mind reflects on a forest and in that forest there is light filtering through and lightness of a path that seems to ensure a feeling of being on the right path..that the right direction was taken on fulfilling life’s destiny…
