THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
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 roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
Life Is A Journey
I have chosen the road less traveled and for now I’m taking it alone. I am leaving behind what is comfortable and familiar and am walking off into the unknown. Some days I stride confidently, other days I creep along, unsure of my footing. I don’t know where the road will lead me but I know that the journey itself will be worthwhile.
I’ve made a life-altering decision, one that I’ve struggled with for quite some time now. Some of you know exactly what I’m talking about, others may not have a clue. I have so desperately been trying to do the right thing, to make the right decision, never quite knowing just what that was. I’ve finally concluded that I have waited patiently for long enough, and it was time to make a choice. I’ve chosen to move on. I am both terrified and thrilled by the unknown. Everything is going to be different from here on out and that scares me because I’m a girl who likes structure and continuity. But I’m also a girl who likes an adventure, a challenge and I’m certainly in for both.
I am so grateful for those of you who have been there for me along the way. I would not have made it this far without your support. So many of you have offered listening ears, shoulders to cry on, and greatly needed advice. I know that you are the ones I can count on for the rest of this journey, for however long it lasts, and wherever it may lead!
