The Road Less Traveled
As I look at all the good things in my life, I am amazed that I am ever in a position of fear or trepidation. All my needs have been provided for throughout my existence. There has been no need to fear or fret.
In May 2018 I took the plunge into the unknown. I quit my full-time job with cushy benefits because I desired more. There was a part of me that was compelled towards the next step forward. Each step I take reveals the next step. This one constant has proved true: I have always been provided for.
This poem by Robert Frost always has a special place in my heart:
The Road Not Taken
“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.”
Perhaps this summarizes where I am?
Let us make today grand. Our eyes have awakened to the sweet grandeur of life. We only come around this way once.
