I Walked an Unknown Path

Last Update: October 14, 2015

I sit here this morning. Going over everything in my head. Was this the path I wanted to take or did I want to make a detour. I have never walked down a path I did not know. Very scared as a matter of fact. Will I trip over a rock I did not see, or run into a branch sticking out? Yes, I would. But I would wipe my knees and get right back up. I would use the branch to hold me up. Would I be frightened of what will be ahead of me? Most definitely. I realized those were not branches sticking out, but arms reaching out to help me along the way. I felt at ease with that. More and more came out. Every now and then. I would get a hug. I WAS NOT alone. I was not in the dark. Only in my own mind did I place this fog over my eyes Suddenly, it became much clearer and I could see at the end of this path, that I was so scared to take, were many people there cheering me on because I had made it to the other side. With a big smile on my face. I knew I had won. The first step is always the hardest. But when you take the path less known, it is not always a bad thing. I have found the tree of knowledge.

Thank you for reading. This is really something I want to do. I will not fail. I will not let it defeat me.

I feel like its the first real challenge I have ever taken. Besides, being a mother. That came natural to me.

A big hug from me to you. I am proud of your courage to take up the un known. You came out of the hazy share of uncertainty into the bright light of recognition of fellow-adventurars.

Reminds me of a Robert Frost poem.

isn't it the Road Less Traveled? I need to find that one. I was once an avid poem reader.

Hi Michele, You will occasionally want to throw a cow or a goat across the road or run out side and bark at the moon- at night 'cause it's hard to see during the day. But throwing and barking are OK if done properly.
We must have a training on that. I'll check.....Dick
