You've planned your path, but the universe keeps throwing obstacles in your way.
and at that point in the road you have no idea which path you should choose.
|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.|
I am feeling that way. I have talked so much on here about wanting to be near my grandchildren. I don't want to see myself in the future looking back knowing that I missed all of their growing up years.
That I missed those special times with them.
and yet, I don't want to move to some anonymous suburb 45 minutes away from them, alone, doing a job that I hate just so that I can see them occasionally.
I wonder. Which is the road less traveled by. And where does the road lead.
When is that happiness that you feel so strongly for others reflected back into your own life?
My mother always told me, growing up, that I wear my emotions on my sleeve. She was right. My emotions are always near the surface. I feel very strongly about things and about other people. I will never apologize for that, but
I am praying and meditating on this, because I know that we all must choose our own path. That in the end it is down to us. That right or wrong we alone must make the decision. That we all deserve to be somewhere where we are fully loved and that we must start with loving ourselves first.
Thank you for sharing this journey called life with me.
