The Road Less Taken Or Is It?

 Where are you on your life's journey?

Do you have a map or do you let each day lead you willy-nilly?

Are you doing what you always dreamed of doing or are you just making do with what life dropped in your lap?

Do you love what you are doing?

If not, why are you still doing it?

Are you enjoying the journey or waiting for the destination before you...

    ...are happy?
    ...use the good china?
    ...ask her to marry you?
    ...take time to smell the roses?

Are you someone that waited for the destination? How'd that work for you?

Elizabeth Gilbert ask us, "Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?"

Do you?  Do you just peek in now and then at your treasures but keep them locked away from the haters and the judges?

 Do you stay the course or wander off the track?  Do you use the paved roads or do you make your own way? What might you miss when you don't take a detour now and then?

 Have you posted your own "No Trespassing" signs so long ago and now wonder why you never meet others on your road?

When you come to obstacles what is your course? Nietzsche wrote, "No one can build your the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life. There may be countless trails and bridges and demigods who would gladly carry you across; but only at the price of pawning and forgoing yourself."

 Have you pawned or forgone a part of yourself or your treasures?

Will your twilight years be glorious or do you think there will be regrets for wrong roads taken?

  1. I've done all of these things at some point in my life or another!

    1. I am sure we all have hit the list off and on. Hopefully we learned something from those moments.
