The wonderful poet, Robert Frost, penned some beautiful thoughts in his poem, The Road Not Taken.  If you haven’t read it and thought about the power of his message here’s a link  so you can read it online.  It’s worth your time.

That said though, I want to get you thinking on another level about your pathway or road in life.  Here’s a quote that is germane to my point:

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation.  It’s one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it’s another to think yours is the only path.” –  Paulo Coelho

The point is using Frost’s philosophy espoused in his poem, make a decision on the path you are taking and don’t look back.  Determine for you, your “road less traveled by” but don’t presume to be so righteous as to think it’s the only pathway in life.  Yours is yours…period.  Others will do just fine choosing their own pathway and don’t need you to think less of them because they didn’t follow your lead, so to speak.

Life is not a super highway on which every person has to travel.  Life is billions of individual pathways that ultimately end up at the same destination.  That makes your pathway just one of billions.  But, it is yours so travel well and judge others less!
