Choosing the right path

How often one must bear the challenges of life;
the endless roller coaster between happiness and sorrow:
the constant ups and downs.
Always the question remains.... why?

Life is not an easy road for most;
it twists and turns and with many forks in the path of life,
although almost always, we are given a choice ...

Do we turn to the right ... or the left?
Do we take the high road ... or the low road?
Do we take the easy path ... or the difficult one?

Decisions for direction ...
choices and signs; overwhelming

While standing at the crossroads in life,
The urge is to take the most comfortable path;
The road with least resistance ...
The shortest or most traveled route.

Do we yet again follow the known?
Or does our destiny lie in another direction?

The fear of the road less traveled is tangible and all too real;
and tends to cloud the issues that might otherwise be clear.

It is in these times of confusion,
That we must seek peace and solitude;

Time to contemplate on our lives,
Our experiences and choices past;
Time to look back, and reflect on what was learned
Without fear or confusion.

For only each of us knows our own personal thoughts;
our unique past and personal history;
The paths that brought us to these crossroads we now face.

We can always learn a small degree from others experiences,
and yet ... no one person can walk in our shoes,

For each is individual ... unique ... and personal.
And that is why ... while standing at a crossroads;
only "we" can formulate the decision for ourselves;
the true direction that lies within;
the choices we must deliberate on with clarity and wisdom.

For it is only through personal reflection,
that we can now choose our destiny;
... Our next adventure;
... And the future we will embrace.
