The Road Not Taken

We all come across certain moments in life when things don’t turn the way we wanted and the direction in which we are heading seems to be out of sight and path; in these moments we are bound to ask questions and I must tell you that the moment you start asking questions, reflecting about the reasons of occurrence of these situations is the time you will come to know the answers to these very difficult looking questions. You might have come across some situations in which you have taken advice of someone not to follow their advice but just to conform your own thoughts, the only thing we lack is the courage to follow our own thoughts but believe me deep down you know the answers, you just need to believe in you. And do one thing whenever you feel afraid put your right hand over your heart and say out loud “ALL IS WELL”.

Read these and you will know what I mean:

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;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

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.

Robert Frost (1874–1963). Mountain Interval. 1920.
