Take the fork


How often do we find ourselves at a fork in the road?

The place where the road we are traveling down ends and we’re forced to make a decision. Which way will we go?

Robert Frost penned the famous words: “Two roads diverged in a wood. I took the one less traveled by, and it has made all the difference.”

Some of us have a hard time taking any new road, let alone a less traveled one.

No matter how miserable we are standing there, no matter the weather or season or state of our heart, sometimes it seems better to wait in some known misery than to step out onto an unknown path.

Better to maintain the status quo than step out in faith or fear of what lie before us.

Yogi Berra, one of baseballs greatest heroes, is credited for some other inspired words. He said: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it!”

How often do we stand on the precipice of our future afraid to take the first brave step?

How much time do we waste in the busy-ness of indecision? Hours wasted in thought, conversation, convincing and second-guessing.

Time we could be still. Living in the present moment, enjoying the journey ahead of us and all the gifts along the way.

There is no magic formula. No trick to doing this well, or right, or goodness knows, perfect. But who’s interested in a perfect path anyway? There are no good stories found on a perfect path.

Where are you? Has the path you’ve been on come to a fork in the road? Take it!

Today’s Challenge: Take the fork! You never know what will be if you don’t begin. Sometimes the first small step is the bravest one of all. Whatever it is, whatever hurdle stands in front of you; you can do this.
