Road Less Traveled

SONY DSC “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,…”  The beginning of my all time favorite Robert Frost poem.

I’m sure my reasons for loving this poem are the same as many.  That cliché, “It resonates with me” thing.  It does.  Since the first time I heard it.   What can I say….I’m a sucker for those “hit me in reality” things.

Someone actually printed it off for me a long time ago.  That was actually before she even knew me well enough to know to do something like that.  Well, she mentioned to her (Now ex) husband and he sent it to me via email.  It was a nice gesture even if I don’t remember exactly what provoked this transaction.  I’m also not sure what what that says about me.  That I’m that transparent or that I just seem to be the kind of person that would always search for the road less traveled.  I would like to think that it is the latter.

DSC_0375 (3) It is not that I’m unsatisfied. Okay, well not anymore than anyone else.  There are clearly things that I would like to change, but few of us can say differently.  I’m just an adventurer and I’m constantly looking for that path to follow.  Preferably one that not too many others have taken.  Just in case you haven’t picked up on that yet.

There are those other times when the path I’m on gets a little stale.  That is when this poem starts running through my head.  It is like something, or someone, knows when I need to hear it most.  I bet we all have something like that.  Don’t we?  It could be just me.

Nobody really knows what tomorrow will bring.   I have been put in a lot of situations lately that have made me rethink things.  Take some things into consideration.  We all have those moments.  We also have those moments when it rains, it pours.  That has kind of been me as of lately.  I’m good with that, though.  I’m Wonder Woman and I’ve got this so bring on the rain.

The decisions that I’ve had to make as a result of these situations….well, they’re not always the most desirable.  Still, they are decisions that I’ve had to make to maintain my path. The one that I know is meant for me.  Or so I hope.

There is a final destination for me. One that is equivalent to what I have planned, or is at least an acceptable compromise.  This is something that I know.  Something else that I know, the only way I’m really going to get there…it is by taking that road less traveled.  Here’s to be daring.  Here’s to be spontaneous.  Here’s to living it up while we still have a chance.  I hope each of you do the same in your own way.   Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by,	 And that has made all the difference." ~Robert Frost~
