Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

  1. I like that, “go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” A lot of us choose to follow the easy path but not the road that is uncertain or not taken by the majority. I realized now that I need to follow my own path , not others. I need to follow the whispers of my heart even is I may have to face pain and struggles. In the end , it is something that would make me feel fulfilled because I chose the path I wanted. Wonderful post. Thanks.

    1. Here is a poem by Robert Frost that has enouraged me to make my own path…

      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 marked 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.
