The road less traveled
January 02, 2011
It didn't take me very long to decide: I'ld take the road less traveled. It's much more interesting, and I don't get to take it very often. The first two miles, it was just fine, and I could run to my heart's desire. But then suddenly it turned into an ice rink, and I had no choice but to stop running, and make my way gingerly across the ice.
No matter how carefully I put my feet down, they kept slipping away.
'I knew it! I should have taken the bike path!' I grumbled to myself. 'The bike path is the road much traveled, and I would have been able to run, instead of shuffle!'
But then I realized: the road less taken, may not be the easiest, but that doesn't mean it's not worth it! And I felt my anger and frustration melt away, as I made friends with the icy streets. I adjusted my footsteps to the slippery snow, and told myself: 'Even though this road isn't what I wanted, I'm going to let it tell me how to travel on it.'
And as I arrived at my parents house I felt this great joy about the road less traveled. It was so worth it!
