The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in the wood and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. ~ Robert Frost

Taking 'the road less traveled' is acting independently, freeing yourself from the conformity of others (who choose to take 'the road more often traveled'), it is making your own choices, and perhaps leaving a new trail that will become the road more often traveled.  Taking the road less traveled requires you to get our of your comfort zone even if it means being very uncomfortable.  The road less traveled represents freedom and adventure but often times there is uncharted terrain that is difficult to navigate.  Be fearless. Have the courage to take risks.  Take the road that challenges you to take risks.  Act with courage.  Be fearless.  It is on that road where your character is truly tested.    Look for chances to take the less traveled road, that is where life's adventures are found    Not everyone will understand your journey and that's okay, it's not theirs to take. 

You won't make yourself a name if you follow the rules
History gets made when you're acting a fool
So don't hold it back and just run it
Show what you got and just own it
No, they can't tear you apart

If you trust your rebel heart, ride it into battle
Don't be afraid, take the road less traveled
Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel
Don't be afraid, take the road less traveled on

 

Be bold enough to live life on your own terms, and never ever apologize for it. Trust your rebel heart.  Go against the grain, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the rhythm of your own drum.  And stubbornly refuse to fit in to the rules of conformity.

Don't follow anyone,
March to the rhythm of a different drum
Why do we analyze, break out, and criticize the crazy ones?

You won't make yourself a name if you follow the rules

If you trust your rebel heart, ride it into battle
Don't be afraid, take the road less traveled
Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel
Don't be afraid, take the road less traveled on

 

Put your hands up, show me that you're one of a kind
Look for chances to take the less traveled road, that is where life's adventures are found

Not everyone will understand your journey and that's okay, it's not theirs to take. 

Take the road less traveled on

 

 

 

 


Every Little Thing

Every Little Thing

"Do not sabotage your new relationship with your last relationships poison" ~ Steve Maraboli

The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting of every little thing is what Nashville recording artist Carly Pearce sings about in her latest song.

The scent that you left on my pillow
The sound of your heart beating with mine
The look in your eyes like a window 
The taste of your kiss soaked in wine 

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing

Carly's latest single Every Little Thing  is a song about being heartbroken.  It is a haunting ballad about the emotional memories from a relationship gone wrong.  As humans we can't tell our heart when we are over someone. Emotional triggers surround us and we can't turn off our emotions. We don't really have control over when these triggers will hit us.  The ghosts of the relationship can catch up with us and haunt us in unsuspecting moments.  

Guess you forgot what you told me
Because you left my heart on the floor
Baby, your ghost still haunts me 

But I don't want to sleep with him no more 

 

It is challenging and very difficult to move ourselves forward into new space after being heartbroken.  The thing to remember is living in the past blocks our joy.  Moving Forward with intention and purpose is important in finding joy again. True joy can only be experienced in the present moment. Live in the moment!. 

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Of every little thing

 

Releasing the crippling memories of a past relationship is difficult.  These 5 steps can be helpful in the process. Empower yourself!  The most powerful tool you own is accepting that you have choices in all your relationships. Hear the story behind the song.

They say time is the only healer
God, I hope that isn't right 
Cause right now I'd die to not remember

Every little thing
I remember every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Every little thing
I remember every little thing
I'm haunted by the memories of
Every little thing
The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting
Every little thing
