A new road, a new beginning

I’ve often come to a place in the road where two roads meet and wondered, ‘what would happen if I chose the road that goes in the other direction?’ It isn’t on the map directions. It isn’t part of the plan, but just maybe there is something better in that one direction. I know it sounds very Robert Frost to ‘take a road less traveled…’ But when you come to that fork in the road, that crossroads in your life, should you stay the course or take a risk and go a new way? 

I’ve learned over the last couple months that you need to put yourself out there and try new things because if you don’t they may never come up again. I’ve learned that you cannot be afraid of what is ahead of you- the future hold something for all of us, we just need to accept what it has in store. 

I’ve learned that when we come to the crossroads, take the road that isn’t always the one most traveled and comfortable. There may be bumps and unknowns along the way but the difference it can make will be worth it not to mention the added bonus of different scenery. 

Choose a different path. Be your own person.
