Ever take the road less traveled?
I left my career to raise my kids. People thought I was crazy, but I followed my heart, and it made all the difference.
How about you? Have you ever ventured down the road not taken?
Oh yes I have many times what I have found out is the road less traveled don't have to many people on it neither are they cheering your name on...
I home-schooled my daughters for two years because the public system was failing them. When they returned to public school, my youngest -- who was unable to read Dr. Seuss on her own at nine years old -- could read Andersonville and comprehend it. It improved both of their lives, but it improved her life immeasurably. When she graduated from university a few years ago, it was with a nearly 4.0 GPA.
Depends on the road. To drop your career to raise your kids? That seems the usual route to me. Women drop their career's all the time to raise their children in my area. The road not taken is a shady job offer, or a friend wanting you to go somewhere strange.
Interesting. My choice was not something anyone in my group had done. I guess it's all perspective. Maybe it's more about taking a chance.
By group I just mean those I worked with, my friends, and a lot of the community. What I did was rare in that setting. Maybe in other settings, it wouldn't be the case. For me, it was the road less traveled and taking a big chance.
I feel like I do every day! The road for people my age (college aged) is to already know what they want to do for the rest of their lives, date lots of people, be involved with drugs, and stay as far away from their parents as possible. I live at home, have a good relationship with my parents, stay away from drugs, take various courses to figure out what I like and what I'm good at, and I'm not even thinking about dating until I decide what is going to happen in the next few years. I feel like acting irresponsibly now will affect my future, and I want to be successful.
For the most part no, I have tried many times but find myself traveling on the overcrowded highway. I love to write and fear traveling down a road where all I do is write. I would love the road less traveled because where there are less people trying to distract me from I love and what I feel called to do.
Hello g-girl11. I'm answering this because I recognized your avatar and remembered the kind comment you made at my wish. I have been wanting to tell you that 'yes' I did wish for myself by making my wish others wishes would be fulfilled. It is like at work. I am not successful unless others are successful. It is easier to help others than to do for myself for some odd reason - I dun'no why. Long story.
Any way regarding this question I am reminded of the poem by Stephen Crane "Truth Said a Traveler." Google it. Posing the question this way it is like that saying moving at the beat of a different drum or something like that. My honest answer is if you can help me to find the road I will be happy, not that I am not. I have a compass, a pencil now a nub after years of scribbling, and a piece of parchment with trail marks on it. I'm hoping someone will find it one day later and build a road along that path. Then again maybe a wilderness trail is better.
I don't know if i have. I know that most of the people who were in my class during elementary school are really in a hurry to finish all there studies in collage and etc and start working. I however like to take it slow because i enjoy the time i have in school and i know that when all my studies are done I will start working and will keep on working until I retire. i'm also not sure what I want my job to be. I don't know if that would be considered a road less traveled or not.
I'd say nearly always... It's not like I choose the path that is less traveled. I just choose the road, which I believed in and it just so happens that it was the road less traveled by. Though, there were plenty of times, in which I second guessed this path along the way, I stuck with it. Yes, at times I was afraid of the possible outcomes and of losing myself, because as Virtuous 1 said it is a lonely road, a road that has been paved very few times. However, after the initial distress, I always have reminded myself why I chose this road.
Yes! i love finding weird and interesting places that aren't often known in my area. Some of my most memorable experiences are by finding things off of weirdnj.com BEFORE they became the book, tv show, and did all the states lol.

Christians, could you ever love or even like an atheist?I'm an atheist and at least 90% of the people I love are Christians. I only have a problem with Christians who use religion as a weapon to harm or control others....

I was recently studying Mark 12:28-31 which calls us to Love God with our whole being, AND ALSO to love our fellow man "as ourself". How can someone who does NOT love themselves (low self esteem) treat others...
