I have always loved Robert Frost’s poem, The Road Not Taken.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Like most people, I initially misunderstood its meaning. I truly believed that taking the road that I thought to be the one less traveled would make all the difference.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
But now I understand that it doesn’t matter what path you take because they are all about the same. Humans love to create meaning, even where there is none.
So, the path is not important. Moving forward is. Your mindset is.
So just take the next step.
