The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, 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 kept 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 travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
The book ‘The Change Riders’ by Gary Kissler contains a wealth of insight which could help us as we go through the major process of change initiated by the Mission Planning Act. Neil Dougal unpacks the book for us here.
Many of us feel the challenge of taking hold of our time so that we can create space and be intentional around new opportunities. David Macartney honestly reflects on how he has developed in this area.
In ‘Vocation: Push or Pull?’ Marjory Maclean questions the different factors which create change and helpfully identifies how we can bring our whole selves to new opportunities.
