The journey toward the best version of ourselves can be rough. Life happens, right? From our early childhood right through life there is resistance. The challenges of learning, growing and accepting ourselves can be daunting. Throw in normal events, happy or otherwise, choices on how we face life must be made.
There are many roads we can take to cope with ourselves, the people around us and whatever else life has in store. The one less traveled, the rocky road, will most like be the one that, in the end, will bring us peace and strength. This is the path that many avoid. It is on this road that we must look in the mirror. It is here we need to be honest with ourselves and the people around us. We must communicate on a deeper level revealing our hearts. We face fears, sorrow and untrue beliefs about ourselves and our world.
Based on the cards dealt to me, the easy way has never been an option for me. My daily life is a constant reminder as well as my tired heart. I always wanted to find an easy way. I wanted to run. I wanted to hide. Facing my stuff head on is my norm. It’s how I roll, not by choice, but by design. Running away is not in my make up. I work at it.
I want it to be different. I want to walk away because I am scared or untrusting. I want to hide. I want to pretend something or someone isn’t important. I want to go back to Boston where it is safe. I can’t. I’m here facing my life the best I can. Trying to love until it hurts. I fall and I get up. I laugh and I cry. That’s life. And I don’t run. Where would I go anyway?
I believe all of life is a blessing. I know instinctively when things are so bad, that I will be ok. I just need to go through this. I believe that, in the end, I will be the best version of myself. You will too.
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood. And I, I took the road less traveled by and that has made all the difference.” The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost
