“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;
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.”
Reporters interviewing a 104-year-old woman:
“And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?” the reporter asked.
She simply replied, “No peer pressure.”
Don’t wait until you are 104 yrs to feel free to do what you want.
Choose the path NOW that makes you feel alive.

Yes! Working on this each and every day. Standing and claiming my own space. Sometimes it is a struggle with the aging process and comparing myself to others, especially younger others, but it is through the witness of a community such as you and others that give me the strength to be me! Thank you Karen.
Well let’s inspire one another! We are all a work in motion Heather! 💕💚

I’ve often heard the saying “take the road less traveled” and it wasn’t until this post where I truly understood where it came from, and most importantly why. And the ending story/quote – perfect for smile 🙂
