The Fork In The Road.

Forks in the road are tricky.  

Often it involves a choice between:

a.  the path you currently are in: safe, familiar, with the devils you know

b.  and the other path: with the more narrow roads, heavy clouds and the devils you don’t know.

However, the safest path is not always the best one.  For indeed, the narrower the road and the greater the challenges that await; the grander the treasures that behold you, in the land where dreams live and come to pass.

So how does one deal with a fork in the road?  How do I make the right choice?

Like any good gamer would say, you collect as much information as you can so as to make the most informed choice.  A sense of perspective over the big picture as it relates to your hopes and dreams, openness to see the signs that often point to the right direction, conviction to actually make the decision and stand by it and luck from the heavens; are the tools we need to equip when we face this situation. Friends and contacts often act us our quest givers, information guides and sellers of weapons and armor to steel us for the path ahead.  So open your heart, open your mind; most importantly open your eyes and ears.

Whatever you do decide, know that in the fork in the road, there is no turning back. There is only moving forward wherever the path may take you. 

And that is where the beauty lies; in later realizing that in the process of deciding which path you are going to take, you never lose.  

Either path changes you through the gain in conviction, courage and confidence.

By actively willing yourself to choose your own path, you already are in the right path.

To lose, is to do absolutely nothing.. but continue along your path blindly just because it was the “safe” choice and it was convenient.

To lose, is to ignore all the signs and say, Bahala Na.

So choose the path which leads you one step closer to your dreams, be mindful and respectful of the signs and people sent to guide you along your way, pray to the heavens for luck, and most of all, be brave and believe that:

Where you are is where you were meant to be.
