It's been said many times before that life is a journey.
As we travel along this journey, we will come to forks in the road. We have to choose which one to take, often not knowing which one is the right one. We don't know what lies at the end of either road. We just have to choose one road and follow that path, and see what awaits us.
As we look back later in life, we may wonder what would have happened if we'd chosen the other road.
Sometimes we may wonder, if we had to travel this path over again, would we choose that same road, knowing what we know now?
Some people confidently proclaim that they wouldn't change a thing. That the roads they chose in the past are what has made them who they are today, and if they had it to do over, they would do the same thing.
Me, I can't always say that. If I began all over again, maybe I would choose a different road, and see where it led me. Because I have definitely made some bad choices in the past.
Right now, I am finding myself at one of those forks again. There are several roads to choose from. Maybe there isn't a right choice or a wrong choice; just different choices.
We just have to choose the one that we believe is the best for everyone involved.
But there is the more familiar road, the safer and secure road.
And then there is the road less traveled. The unknown. The exciting.
Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, and expecting different results.
Maybe it's time to seek some sanity in this crazy life by doing something different, and getting different results.
And choosing a different road to get there.
