The Road Not Taken

Remember our childhood? The happiest moment would be celebrating the Birthday. Receiving blesses, gifts from parents, siblings, relatives, friends that made us felt so loved and important on our “Big Day”.

Happy Birthday  xxx , may all your wishes come true.

We have dreams since childhood, almost every Birthday, people bless us with the same old wishes over and over again. However, as an Innocent child, we are extremely pleased with that, because we believe, all the wishes – They will eventually come true in the future.  Life is just so simple for a child, isn’t it (without the necessity of making tough decisions)?
And now, the child had grown up. Standing at the Cross-road determine which way to go ..
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.

Lols, are you familiar with the poem? (Boring .. Especially during Literature period). After years, the moment when I truly digest the poem, surprisingly I find out this poem is rather meaningful.
Aren’t we often muddled through this state of affairs in our lives? Ever wonder “The road” you have Not taken?  Too often, we were given options, and decision has to be made. We habitually ponder each and every alternative; unfortunately, from time to time we couldn’t foresee what seize in the future.
At all times, we regret with the decision we have made, and start wonder, what if another option was selected. However, if the “another option” was taken, the option will lead to another possibilities, and then neglect another possible path of choice. No difference right? Whining about the decision you have made at the earlier stage did not help much, instead, walk through the decision you have made, will make a new realm of possibilities.
That is what we have to go through in the journey called – Life. Whatever decision you have made, that’s the decision you have chosen, get a move on.  Keep the faith in you, always believe when God bring you to the test of your life, He will bring you through it =)
