Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two road diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The road less traveled doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best one to take, or that you have to take the most traveled one. That, my friend, is a personal choice. I think the most important thing is that you take one or the other. Make the move, live your life, appreciate what you have and move towards happiness.
It’s always at the end of the year that we sit back and reflect on the past and decide what we what for the future. Doesn’t it make sense to do this on a daily basis instead? Why should we make unrealistic resolutions once a year when we would benefit more to make realistic ones more often. Wouldn’t it be easier to achieve our goals when we take it one step at a time than to make an abrupt change that won’t last? I think most of us set ourselves up for failure by not thinking out the reasons for the resolutions and outlining the steps to get there. Make a plan, not a rash decision. Choose your road and take a step.
Much love to all…
