Two Roads Diverged

As we ring in the New Year, people all over find themselves reflecting on the events of 2014 – what they enjoyed in their personal lives, the success they found in their business lives, and how they can improve in the year to come.

As I’m planning out my goals and aspirations for 2015, one of my favorite poems comes to mind. In the midst of our busy days, sometimes it’s easy to forget what you are truly passionate about. It’s easy to focus on the possibility of failure, instead of your probable upcoming success. Instead of living in fear, I challenge you to reflect on the positive things that happened in your life over the past year, and make a list of the wonderful things you would like to achieve in 2015. Think big and don’t hold back – as you never know what you can accomplish until you try.

Yellow Forest in the Fall

 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.
