Like the poet, Robert Frost, I have been taking the road less traveled for many years now. It has been a twisting and curvy road with many steep hills and rocky spots. It hasnít been well lit or well paved, and I have often stumbled along as I walked it. I have even fallen down time and time again. I have always, however, picked myself back up, dusted myself back off and continued on my way. It hasnít been easy walking on the road of choosing love and sharing joy, but I wouldnít trade the journey for the whole world. It truly ďhas made all the difference.Ē

This road has strengthened the legs of my soul, exercised the love of my heart, and vitalized the joy in my life. It has taken me to places of beauty and delight that I didnít know existed and has helped me to travel both through the world and into myself at the same time. It has introduced me to the greatest guide and traveling companion imaginable: God, and has helped me to walk in oneness with Him each and everyday of my life.

I have noticed something too. With each day that I walk down the road less traveled, I find more and more beautiful souls walking it as well. With each day I walk down the road of choosing love and sharing joy, I find more and more fellow travelers who have left the more traveled road and followed their hearts and souls to this one.

Donít be afraid to take the road less traveled then. Donít be afraid to take the road of choosing love and sharing joy. The trip may be bumpy and rough at times, but it will always lead you where you need to go. The road may not be as crowded or well lit but with God by your side and beautiful souls walking it with you, it will always be a delight to travel all through this life and on into the next
