Which Way? Which Way?

So recently I have been completely taken off guard by a whirl wind of unexpected opportunities…  I should know by this age that life is unscripted no matter how much you would like to plan it out.

I am struggling with what to do.  Take the “smart, sensible” approach or to hold fast to hope of something better.  Who knows?  One thing for sure is that paralysis is never a catalyst for change.  Decisions must be made & there is no one but me that will have to live with the consequences of the choices made & left behind.

Helping Hand: Too late now!”]Guess the good thing is I wanted change.  I needed change.  Clearly the choices matter or either path would lead me where I want to be.  Alas I haven’t a clue where I will end up.  Just have to trust that I will know when I most need to what decision to make.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, 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

  1. Life offers no guarantees….only choices. Choosing one over another, without expectations, means you won’t be disappointed…but you will learn something along the way, and that is what life is about…a series of lessons to be learned. After all, living to one’s fullest potential, is a process, not an event.

  2. Life is pretty amazing like that.

    Only by letting go, it seems we see what is really there. I think that’s why I love my camera so much. Only by stopping & viewing from a different angle do I see the details that are so interesting. I never see half the stuff while just walking or looking.

    So much to learn & never enough time, but I think that is what makes us all unique. No one else will ever know what we know or walk the path we do. Its our individual story. 🙂
