In the year 2013 and beyond...

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

-by Robert Frost


This is perhaps one of my most favorite poems. Every time I read this poem, I feel as though it speaks to me on so many levels. I have always chosen the unconventional...the unassuming...I've always been one to not do things the easy way. I get a real sense of satisfaction out of adversity and achieving things that I have worked hard for.

The next few months for me will be...I won't say trying but it will be quite telling. I have decisions that need to be made and actions that need to be acted upon. Mentally I have been preparing myself for a while so my mindset is ready. I just need to get the physical and my heart on the same wavelength. Shouldn't be too hard to Mariah Carey once sang, "There can be miracles, when you believe..." (Man, I love the movie...really dramatic and great). I really am looking forward to 2013 and all the good things I'm sure it has in store for me...
