I’ve said quite a bit in the last few days about bandwagons and how I try to avoid them, saying I’m just sort of contrarian. This video meditation based on the poem by Frost says it better than I could ever say. Avoiding bandwagons has made all the difference.
I’ve dreamt about taking the road less traveled and was warned that it would not be fun or easy, but I did it in some ways. Not that the way I’ve taken has always been better or easier, but it’s been my way, or as close to it as I could make it without cutting a brand new way with machete and strong arms.
A very different life than I might have had simply lost in the crowd. A bit lonelier, perhaps, but in some ways more satisfying, I think.
