Keeping it simple…

Editor’s note:  This is a recurring Wednesday segment on SillySimple where we can ground ourselves in the simple solution to everyday life.

In the name of keeping it simple for the third Wednesday in February…

Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems most challenging ~ Joseph Campbell

I was just having a conversation with a friend this week about the difference between taking the easy route that we know and actually accepting the challenge to move beyond the comfortable and known.

    Not a big fan of Joseph Campbell. Like this one way better:

    The Road Not Taken

    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 marked 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.

    Robert Frost

    I am dealing with something like this right now. Sticking with something I know or changing my situation, which is scary but will be the best for my family in the long run. Not looking forward to some of the conversations that have to happen inbetween now and then, but know in the end that it will all have been worth it.
