In my last post, If It’s Broken, Fix It and Save Your Money, I ended it with the words — Dare to be Different. In my life, I’ve found that I can only be me. And even if it means making a different decision than my colleagues, friends or others, I must be willing to make the right one for me.
I encourage you to Dare to be Different. Besides, then you don’t have to try to keep up with the Joneses or anyone else. 🙂
Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road Not Taken” shows you how being different could make “all the difference.”
The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
