“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I… I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” ~ Robert Frost
So often, when faced with a choice, we feel like we’d better choose the sure thing. Or the one that is more socially acceptable. Or the one we think is expected of us (the should).
But, what would happen if you chose the road less traveled? What would you have to change? What would be different for you? What would be possible?
The next time you have a choice to make, envision for a few minutes what would be true for you if you chose the unexpected. Even if you’re only faced with which sandwich to order at a food truck, choose one that is a stretch for you.
Go on, live a little. You may go back to your regular order tomorrow but even if you do, you chose differently today. And that could make all the difference.
