Dare To Be Different

It is not always easy to live life on our own terms, to go against convention and pursue the life we dream of.  Sometimes societal norms and expectations can be so strong that we convince ourselves we should be doing what everyone else is doing.  Yet, for the brave souls who have the courage to pursue their passion and fight for their dreams no matter how unconventional or non traditional they may be, true happiness and fulfillment awaits.  In the classic poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost this exact sentiment is beautifully captured.  If you have reached a crossroads in your life and are struggling over which route to take, give this poem a read through and it may just provide the inspiration you need to make the right decision.  This is a timeless work of poetry that is worth revisiting on a regular basis.  Check it out in full below, and don’t ever be afraid to take the road less traveled.

The Road Not Taken 
by Robert Frost

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
