From the Publisher: The Road Taken
In high school English class, many of us read the Robert Frost poem “The Road Not Taken…Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both…”.
Looking back on things now just think what your life would be if you had taken the other path. What if you had turned left or swiped right at key junctures of your life. How different would it be.
Would you have a unconnected degree from a different school, a divergent career. Possibly more importantly, would you have discrete friends, an unalike spouse and out of the ordinary children. What kind of person would you have become since variegated people and environments help define us. What would be the trade-offs if you had chosen the other road.
Whatever way you decided, while it’s fun to imagine the other alternatives in a magical thinking type of world, the essence left at present is to make wherever you have traveled to at this point in time, good and bad, the best it can possibly be. Your reassurance with your state of mind and being will actively fertilize the happiness of those in your trajectory. Doing this will ensure your happiness too.
