I have been going through some difficult moments for the past few weeks. It was the first time that I had to take a good look in the mirror to see that my words and actions have been reflecting the person that I did not want to be. I feel that I have not been living a good life though I calmed to believe that I have.
I went to a retreat where I reflected and contemplated on the person that I would like to imitate. Retreats are the best place to rest, pray, and reflect. Life runs at full speed, and sometimes we need those moments of tranquility in order to know what path we are walking in.
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.
