I Am Not

IAMNotMy

The path less traveled doesn’t necessarily mean that other people have not chosen it. It just means that you would typically not choose to go that way. The path less traveled brings emotions you might not recognize. You might not have a well-understood emotional response or might not have a pre-established coping mechanism in place to be able to handle new or unknown feelings.

I have always admired people who suddenly choose a different path and somehow manage to re-emerge happier or fundamentally changed. What kind of magic mushrooms do they stumble upon?

I guess when you live your life knowing that you get to define who you are, then opinions don’t matter, past doesn’t matter, and experiences do not matter. Everything that has happened, everything that has been experienced, everyone whose path has crossed with ours, and every choice that has been made, is part of the path we take to grow and to evolve.

If we wonder often, the gift of knowledge will come. – Arapaho

    I love this statement, Dace; it has within it a multitude of possibilities; all valid, challenging and true!
