Incredulous as it may seem, but life happens at the crossroads. Every road has something in store for you.
One can take you to where your dreams lie, but it's fraught with uncertainties and failures. But this is your dream path, a path if takes its course, you have the opportunity to turn yourself into a dream man/women you always wanted to be. Nonetheless, the path is less traveled and you are quite oblivious to the mishaps and misfortunes it throws your way. You may stumble and fall umpteen times. But didn't they tell you that it's in falling that you rise like a star. I know it's easier said than done. A road less traveled is traveled less for a reason. Being a magnet of uncertainties, only few have the nerve to go through it all...sweat, blood and tears. And only a few have the courage to have their hearts cracked over and over again.
The second one can take you to where your family and friends want you to be. Secure and safe, your life is more or less certain over here. You don't have to test the waters here. Someone is already ready to share your burden willingly. And there are people to support you.You don't have to undertake the journey on your own. Since you are following the most treaded path. But will you ever find happiness taking this road?
The fact is people who have reached glorious heights were courageous people who let go off the certainties in life. Am i courageous enough? Or better to put it this way. Will i ever have the courage to let go off the certainties and take the road less traveled and live my dreams.
