Hearts So True Find Their Way!!!

Good day one and all ;today's hub is about admitting that you took a wrong path and that it is also possible to get back onto that right path once again.

This comes from my own experiences this past week or so.

I shall share my journey with you but without sharing all the facts as it is so personal to me and it would not feel right to do so.

It was a difficult situation which had been going on for a good while in my family but I rose above it ;however it came to a head when certain people used Facebook to spite me.

It hurt me no end and I finally gave in and deactivated my account.

Initially I had a great feeling of relief and vowed to sort out my accounts with HPs, Blogger,Pinterest and google+ so that I could still keep in touch with many of the wonderful friends I had made over the past three years or so.

There was indeed a gap in my days but I have always said that once I make a decision and move away from something or someone I will never retrace my steps and return to that situation/person again.

Then slowly but surely the emails came through from so many friends who were missing me; messages through my HPs account and yesterday morning a beautiful card through the post from Christina.

I did not feel as sure anymore that I had made the correct decision ;but again I am the one who does not retrace her steps!!! Or so I thought.

The day went by with me pottering about the house feeding Tabs and Meg and of course my twice daily shift caring for special needs youngsters to and from their school.

It was then time for Dai to come in frorm work; I told him of all the messages and showed him Christina's card.

How immediate words were "I think you are going to have to go back!!" "You know that that is what you truly want to do!!"

He had said the exact words I wanted him to say ;the thoughts I had been trying to push to the back of my mind all day.

I then was able to confess that in deactivating my account I was actually allowing others to win with their spite and wrongdoing.

Why on earth should I miss out on such wonderful friendships which I have come to cherish because of the cruel words and deeds of someone so shallow and so nasty?? I was in actual fact allowing them to govern my days and happiness!!

Therefore last night I reactivated my account and the greetings, caring thoughts and gifts have been totally overwhelming.

I send each friendship which I made here on HubPages; Facebook and every where else all the love I can from my little corner of Wales.

You are cherished from the bottom of my heart ;thank you so very very much and how wonderful that there is still so much love and care in this world.

I am humbled and have never felt richer in my entire life.

I hope you will enjoy the following poetry and images.


A chamber of dark clammy senses.

Source

Footsteps eager sure footed and strong.

Until that niggling thought

once again raised its ugly head!

Gnawing away

chipping in deeper

a chamber

of cold

clammy senses.

To rise above

to smother the enemy

A mindset so clear

so strong

until the day came

and

the jury was out.

I stand up

my outcome

so near !!

I packed my bags and walked away

new days ahead;

never a defeatist

never to trace

those steps away from all.

I stood strong

I stood tall;

Never to be beaten

so clear my call...................

x

Persons so cruel

their words so cold;

To walk on by

as lies were told...............

x

Then from true hearts

along with such care;

Sincerity flowed

such love to share...................

x

Once again so rich

never again to be poor;

Time to reopen

that semi closed door.....................

x

What had I done

but allowed others to win;

I again stand up tall

a strength from within...................

x

With this strength

last night I returned;

To those who matter

a great lesson I learnt.......................

x

There will be times

when we take the dark road;

But to admit our wrong

will lighten our load............

x

I was oh so wrong

I now do confess;

But now back for sure

every true friend I bless....................

x

To all of you

my friends/family;

I will cherish forever

the love you've shown me..............

x

A love so unconditional

to reach out, to care;

I again stand tall

that beauty to share...........................

x

My spirit may sway

as the North wind blows;

But my heart will shine

in an eternal glow...........................








Contemplation.

Source

Sweet musings

a time of

contemplations.

Take a moment

come sit by me.

This world of beauty

delicate and tender

but with a soft tough

I find my strength from within.

When we find love

and life long friends

we find those footsteps

so sure and so strong.

Follow that path to

sweet wonders to taste;

that spider's cobweb

a true sign so wondrous.

Dewdrops and rose scented mists

will caress your touch;

tell of you travels

we learn oh so much.

I now share the bad as well as the good;

to be honest is a gift

so treasured

so strong

and eternal for sure.

Laced with dewdrops.

Source

Sweet winds so wondrous

Emotions laced with dewdrops

Each golden new dawn.

New trails.

Source

To follow the road

Recognising the wrong turn

New trails oh so clear.

Sweet caresses.

Source

Such sweet caresses

Each tender moment cherished

Always so tender.

Fill eager hearts.

Source

From each sweet haven

We find a lifetime's treasures

To fill eager hearts.

Serenity.

Source

I hope you all enjoyed this hub and would like to leave you with this thought.

We are only human and of course we are going to make some bad decisions and take a wrong turning as we travel life's journey from time to time. However the greatest show of strength is needed to stand up and admit you were wrong and then to take that correct turning .

I wish you all a wonderful day and here's to so many more years of friendship.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

Eddy.

words which depict the need of inner strength with hundred percent truthfulness. You have done the right thing Eiddwen. Yes, to own up faults and to have the courage to choose the right path is the secret to success.

Good for you in standing up for yourself, Eddy. However, I don't think it's you who should admit you were wrong. The person that has tormented you is the one who should admit they were wrong!

Your poems of strength and courage are very moving and the photos are just beautiful! I'm glad you have resolved your issues. I know how distressing it was for you.

Loved the pics today. Serenity in the muse. I will now confess; When I read your leaving FB I shook my head and said, "I never took Eddy for a quitter because of what others thought or said". Clearly I thought you had good sense to avoid toxins to your soul. But I gathered you were one to put on protective gear and trudge ahead.

I was right, in my first instincts. And the depth of your strength is still unknown to me.

Great inspiration to all of us.

Your grace always raises you above what others may think or say, "never a defeatist" let your heart shine in that "eternal glow" and know that here, FB and everywhere your friends love you!

Voted up, useful, beautiful, and interesting.


Rayne123 3 years ago

beautiful hub and great inspiration for a lot of people I am sure.

Beautiful pictures and your poems speaks in so many different ways.

Glad everything worked out for you.

Sometimes when people talk its just a problem they have within themselves and maybe that leads to them crying for attention.

Maybe its a way for them to be heard for someone to listen to them

We never know what goes on behind closed doors.

So glad your path is brand new. You are a sweet woman

Blessings

Laurie

PS, how does one get their pictures in the middle of the words as opposed to the bottom or the side

thanks

It's interesting, Eddy, but when I read this I thought of Bev and I...two wounded spirits just looking for true love. All of the wrong turns during a lifetime finally led us to each other.

Beautiful my friend....why you didn't win poet of the year in Hubbies is beyond me.

love,

Eddy, I had no idea. All I knew was that I went to wish you happy birthday and your account was deleted. I am so sorry that someone is shallow enough to use something like Facebook to hurt you. I am also so hapy you are back and all the stronger for it!

Beautiful poems, beautiful pictures, as always and hopefully a very long time. I am proud to call you friend! Up++

This is a beautiful poem and so true are your words. Years ago before FB, there was a lady that said one time why do you run away from all when there is only one bad one in the bunch. When we run from them, we lose out on what we've worked so hard to gain.

Hi CraftytotheCore thank you so much for this wonderful quote ; I have always said that I would never back away from anything or anyone again. I guess at times we do make wrong choices but a slong as we realise our mistakes at some point I guess we are allowed to do so.

Enjoy your day and thank you again..

Really heart-spoken words coming out from within, being hurt, laden with true confessions. I liked the latter part of the poems very much. The contemplation was awesome. One more thing I'd like to add, you say about admitting one's mistake but what to do when you know you'd not been on the wrong side after listening to your inner voice and the other person(s) want none of it?


meghabrito profile image

meghabrito 3 years ago from Kolkata, India

I edited the above comments within the stipulated time to add something I dearly wanted to mention and also put it in little order but for whatever unknown reason it didn't show up. Sorry for that.

Just wanted to say that you seem to be an emotional person to me from what I see here and most people don't understand emotional persons, that is a big problem!

I also wanted to mention that the images were so good that those made the words alive. Very craftily chosen.

It is good to know that you have loving people around you and you have your peace of mind now, those two things are very important in life. Have a Great Day!

Voted up and awesome. You are awesome Eddy. I am glad you returned to FB and I am glad I can find you in lots of places on the Internet. You know that the people who are mean or harm others by deeds or words are just a blotch on the page of life. God will know how to deal with them and they truly mean nothing to the wonderful people like you in this world. I am glad that you found your way back because you are a friend to be treasured and someday I sure hope that we can meet. I mean my gosh, we are practically neighbors you in Wales and me in Latvia. Let's see what we can do about getting together one of these days. Sending you lots of love and hugs and special pats to Tabs and Meg and a happy meow from my Sid.

Hi meghabrito this comment means so very much and I so look forward to getting to know you also; HubPages for all its faults is such a warm and caring community and we are surrounded by so many life long friends. You are so right when you say that some do not understand sensitive people or maybe they choose not to try. Even though I know I am strong and resilient you are so right in saying that I am one of these sensitive souls. This really is so greatly appreciated and here's to wishing you a wonderful, weekend. Lots of love to you from my little corner of Wales.

Oh Rasma thank you so much for this kind ad caring comment. It's strange because since deactivating my FB account and facing up to the spiteful deeds of others it is now all settled in my mind. Here come my three favourite words; I have accepted that it is so; I expect to feel a little sad because of it from time to time but I also appreciate the good things in my life. I appreciate all the beauty around; my family who I love and cherish (this counting Tabs and Meg of course) and I so greatly appreciate all the wonderful life long friends I have made and still do make on here ;my treasured Hubfamily.

Never say never Rasma and how wonderful it would be to met up. Have a wonderful weekend and lots of love to you from my little corner of Wales.

Many wonderfully happy meows to Sid from Tabs and meg also.
