The Road Not Taken

Picture Source:

"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"
Robert Frost

I've recently been faced with the same forked path.

And I also took the road less travelled. I closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and just ran for it.

It's still terrifying for me, as I'm faced with so many unknowns, and what is more terrifying in life than the unknowns right?

So far, other than the fear, I have not regretted one bit of it.

Much Love,
