That has made all the difference
I believe the original words from The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost go like this: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I– I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” As you can see, the one in the image is more fitting. It’s also the way I’ve heard the most and the quote that came to mind when I thought of which quote to use with this photograph (also from my Herblingen Castle walk).
Another quote I was considering using claimed that it doesn’t matter what road you take because they all go to the same place, but I’m not sure I believe that. I think we choose our paths, detours, shortcuts, scenic view routes, (avoided) bumps, toll roads, etc. and the way we choose takes us to some place different. Whether or not that place is where we need to be is a different matter.
This year I could have chosen to not worry about school and I’d be on a completely different road. Today, after sending tons of emails and not getting any good responses (yet), I could just give up, but I’m not going to in hopes that I will be able to go to university, that it’ll all work out. The road we choose to take really does make all the difference.
I hope all of you have amazing weekends that will take you only on good roads. I’ve had a beyond busy past couple of weeks and I can’t wait to get at least a little bit of relaxation in!
