CROSSROADS

At some point in your life, you reach a crossroad. A turning point that will dictate how the rest of your life will go. You can stand there for all eternity and weigh all the options but sometimes the only way to find out if you made the right choice is to move forward. The consequence will tell you whether or not you chose the right path. Sometimes, we regret choosing the path we took and find ourselves wondering if it is too late to turn back and go the other way. Sometimes we already know it is too late and so we go forward and learn to live with the choices we made. For some of us, the regret is too big that we end up giving up and deciding that this is it, we can’t go any further.

Unknown to us is that, sometimes the two paths converge at a certain point and it didn’t really matter if you took the one on the right or the one on the left because it all leads to the same destination. The only difference was the scenery.

We learn what we can from the choices we made. We try to pick the best path for us to follow taking into consideration every single shred of information we can and weigh all possible options. Sometimes, we even try to predict the future, though we know how futile that is.

If, by any chance, you are in that crossroad right now, take it easy. If you have already chosen and at some point along the way you realize that the trail you picked is harder that you expected, don’t give up. Hang in there. Just take one step at a time. Things do get better. 

“…rest if you must, but don’t you quit.”
