I don't follow trails. I start them.
ALWAYS the unknown and uncharted territory...I can't imagine going about things with the safe familiar route when I'm at a crossroads. What growth is there in that...way too complacent for my tastes. Plus you learn so much about yourself along the way.
I wish you much success in your leap of faith...always blaze anew. While it's scary at the beginning...the growth is worth it. I would hate to be on my death bed with regrets of not ever having tried...that would be horrible.
just follow Yogi's advice: when you come to a fork in the road--take it!
The unknown and risk. ;)
