Where are you going?

 

The new year usually brings thoughts of new plans and adventures. Places to go. People to meet. Ideas to explore. Now we are in the middle - the year half behind us and yet still half lays ahead.

Every "yes" we choose consequently means "no" to everything else, at least to some degree. I often think of Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken, quoted from https://www.poetryfoundation.org.

 

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 kept 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.

 

Our "now" choices affect the rest of our lives  - and eternity. Even the attitudes we adopt influence our health, our relationships and our futures. While we celebrate today, we are making memories for tomorrow and choosing a path into "forever after".

Today is a good day to celebrate!
