Choosing the Path Less Traveled

"Choosing the path less traveled can be a challenge, but the reward is worth every step along the way." ~Mama Hen
Today I got to thinking about the paths we can take. I am at the point in my life where I feel like I need to choose a new path. I am at the half way point in my journey and want to make sure that the direction I take is the best first and fore most for my child and then for me. The thing is that I have always chosen the path less traveled. On our way to the beach today my sister said, "Why don't you try and sit in the middle of all the people." I tend to choose the less crowded part of the beach for peace and tranquility. Before we got to the the beach we stopped at a store to pick up a couple of things. There were at least 100 parking spots open and when we came back to my car (which I always park farther away) there was a car right next to ours snug as could be. I looked around and wanted to understand that. It also made me realize that I do not want to follow the crowd. I guess that my inner need to travel the road less traveled, less crowded, and more peaceful has lead me to this very point. I know I will continue to choose that less traveled road, because it is there that I have found it to be the most rewarding. There is something so refreshing knowing that there are so many avenues to take. Now with a lot of prayers, some thinking and planning and a great amount of hope I take that first step forward.

  3. I'm with you on that. I'm not a crowd follower. Just because everyone else is doing it is not reason enough to do it. In fact, it's more reason to evaluate WHY before making a move.

  7. This post really hit home for me too. I feel like I'm at a point where I need a new focus and direction too, but it's definitely one that follows my own beliefs and not the ones of anyone else. I hope you're doing well Mama Hen and that you enjoy the journey ahead. Keep on following that path in your heart.
