Leap of faith

What do you do when you’re torn between two very different things but cannot imagine giving up either.
Giving up one would mean letting go of half of yourself.
Wouldn’t that lead to half the happiness, half the adventure, half the experiences but full regret?

How do you choose between the scenic road less taken and the overused stable highway ?

One gives you freedom, the other gives you peace.
One is made of vivid day dreams, the other of sleepless nights.
One is natural, the other acquired.

Whatever said and done, the bigger question still seems to be why do you have to choose?

What is this mechanical man made world that demands you to stick to the rules, get in line or get crushed ?
How dare you believe you could get it all?
How dare you believe you are enough?

That’s not how its done, they say.
Jack of all traits, master of none, they say.
Well, you say to them, its your time to put in, its your hard work to do.
Its your white picket fence, made of a whole heart and of no regrets.

If you don’t jump, you’ll never know.
The leap of faith only seems worthwhile in retrospect.
So, go on then, look for answers

but first

ASK the questions.

  1. The words ‘I shall be telling this with a sigh,… that I took the one less travelled by and that has made all the difference’ by Robert Frost always left me wondering whether it was a sigh of relief or regret, but reading this has made me realize that it doesn’t matter what the sigh means, it’s the fact that you picked what you felt and went through with it is all that matters. Cause no matter the road it’s the same destination, so why not go with what makes you whole. Kudos to this piece.

    Yours sincerely
