Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And it has made all the difference.
In life you don’t always have Google Maps telling you to turn here or exist there. If Apple were so kind as to offer one, I’d buy it in a heartbeat. But the truth is, sometimes you have to rely on your intuition to guide you. The paths you choose set the course for where you will be today, tomorrow and 10 years down the road. Too often I want to floor it and get to the end of the path to see where it leads. And after a series of wrong turns I just want to throw the car in reverse and act as though I never went down that road to begin with. But the best course of action, always, is to give yourself plenty of travel time, drive the speed limit and take in what’s around you. The road may have bumps in it and if you drive too fast, you’ll jostle your precious cargo.
