When you find yourself at a crossroad, do you take the most familiar route or do you take a chance on a different path, in the hope that you will discover something new and exciting?
Whenever I’ve been faced with the decision to drive along the faster, more commonly used road, I always prefer to take the scenic route. And, I am rarely, if ever, disappointed.
The ride may not be as smooth or as safe, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The insights and adventures far outweigh the intermittent bumps. Bumps are, after all, simply life lessons in disguise.
I dedicate this Robert Frost poem to all of you who, like myself, prefer to take the path less traveled.
The Road Not Taken
