Two of Swords

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

When life presents you a choice to pick the safe route (the way you always pick, the one you're familiar with), or the scary route (the one you maybe know you should pick, but haven't done before), which will you choose?

It's okay to choose to the safe route for now, until you're ready to take the scary route.  The scary route will change your life for the better (though it may be very, very hard in the beginning).  But we can only walk the walk when when we're ready.  If we push ourselves to do it before we're ready, then we will either a) revert right back to our old selves or b) fail so hard that we will be scared forever to take that route again.  

Though, sometimes, we think we aren't ready, and we are.  You are the only person who knows when you can push yourself and when you can't.  Fear will always be there.  That won't change.  But can you live with the fear for a bit?  Because eventually it will give way to your life's truth.  

Weigh your options.  Which choice will give you the most reward?  Which choice will be worth failing and learning from?  Which one will be worth the journey?  Which one can you live with?  

This is your life, remember that.  It's not a dress rehearsal.  You only get one shot at this.  Make sure that you're choosing a life you can be happy with when it comes to the finale.
