The Road Taken

When faced with a choice, you can choose to take the path you always take or a new one.

You can choose to take the road you know, the one you can walk with your eyes glued to your phone without missing a step.  Or you can choose to take the unknown road, the one that scares you a little.  The one that you can get lost on or hurt if you don’t step carefully.

Like this one,  which scared me to no end….

But, I took a deep breath & went as far as I could.

It is something I did throughout my time in Thailand.  Every time I felt scared or uncomfortable, I pushed myself to just take one more step.  I would tell myself,  “You are in Thailand, this why you are here & this may be the only chance you get … so climb that step, take that narrow path, jump from the boat. ” 

“Just do it, don’t over think it.”

Every time I did take that one step I was rewarded with something amazing – a  beautiful sunset, a delicious meal, a moment of self-discovery or just the exhilarating feeling of being alive.

So I don’t regret the steps I took that lead me to Thailand &  on my journey of self-discovery & adventure. Those steps are taking me on a new road in life, which might not be the easiest or most conventional road, but man do I ever feel alive.

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost.. Great post and meaning behind it. Also love the stunning imagery. 🙂
