Fork In The Road... No Short Cuts...

Life will often bring you to these forks in the road. You may find yourself staring down the less crowded road with a bit of anxiety and doubt. Sometimes, it is essential we take this road, so we may experience who we really are and why we are here. These journeys in life can help mold us into who we are supposed to be if we choose to "let go"... When taking our journey, we may be required to dig deep into our souls, take ownership and face the pain, grief, sorrow, and loss that we have been neglecting to deal with for a lifetime.

I've been meaning to comment on this.. but it's hard to know even where to start, as you've summed up so wonderfully "the journey". A Mary Oliver poem comes to mind, and Socrates words, "The unexamined life is not worth living". I do think Mary Oliver says it so well:



The Journey



One day you finally knew

what you had to do, and began,

though the voices around you

kept shouting

their bad advice --

though the whole house

began to tremble

and you felt the old tug

at your ankles.

"Mend my life!"

each voice cried.

But you didn't stop.

You knew what you had to do,

though the wind pried

with its stiff fingers

at the very foundations,

though their melancholy

was terrible.

It was already late

enough, and a wild night,

and the road full of fallen

branches and stones.

But little by little,

as you left their voices behind,

the stars began to burn

through the sheets of clouds,

and there was a new voice

which you slowly

recognized as your own,

that kept you company

as you strode deeper and deeper

into the world,

determined to do

the only thing you could do --

determined to save

the only life you could save.

wow.... true, and so elegantly put.
