My favorite poem is by Robert Frost entitled "The Road Less Traveled" honoring the many choices we face and can make. Just as we think we are headed one direction, the road often diverges and we must suddenly choose which fork to take. There is no roadmap for life. It sometimes feels like a risk to take the path that looks less sure, more unkempt and worn.
When we are ready to open ourselves to change and transformation- the path ahead is not always certain and rarely familiar. It takes courage to tread into new territory and feel vulnerable. Yet those that have left the road and taken the trails all will agree- "that has made all the difference."
