What is so remarkable about life is that we’ve been given a free will in which to choose our path. We can take a short cut and risk its consequences or take the long way around to enjoy the scenery. We can rush through everything and wind up missing opportunities, or take our time and pay attention to every little detail. We can choose a path others before us have followed, or take the road less taken. Regardless of the path we take, it’s our choice to make.
Robert Frost spoke of the value in taking the road less traveled in his poem, The Road Less Taken:
ROAD LESS 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 kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto 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 took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference
Whatever path you ultimately choose, travel it “The Little Way.” It could make all the difference.
Remember … touch a life today “The Little Way” by following the lead and need of others. Also, if you ever thought to yourself, “I wish my customers, knew…”, then be sure to visit White Light Communications at http://www.tothewhitelight.com.
