The Road Taken
In high school English class, many of us read the
Robert Frost poem “The Road Not Taken…Two roads di-
verged 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. Possi-
bly 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 var-
iegated 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 happi-
ness of those in your trajectory. Doing this will ensure
your happiness too.
