The Choices We Make

"...two roads diverged in a wood,
and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."-Robert Frost

I love this quote. "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" was the first poem I had to memorize when I was little. Ever since then, I have always loved Robert Frost (even though I had such a difficult time memorizing that poem).

I remember having to read this in Junior High School. At that time this quote struck me as so important. The little choices we make at various crossroads in our life which seem sometimes insignificant but are so critical in the direction we proceed.

So true, the smallest choice can make all the difference. Sometimes it is so hard to make a choice too, I find myself stuck with indecision, unsure which way to go.

There's an Indigo Girls song that really captures that dilemma:
"Up on the watershed,
Standing at a fork in the road,
You can stand there and agonize,
Till your agony's your heaviest load..."

I try to remember that when faced with a seemingly impossible choice, just take a step in one direction or the other and hope for the best. Also figure if I get lost, the Spirit will somehow guide me back. (Those mysterious ways and all...)
