The road less traveled is a difficult road, and a more rewarding one, too.
Take BuDhaGirl for example, it is the first fashion company that combines contemplative practice and evidence-based science with fashion. Forget a road less traveled, try a road never traveled. The first year there were skeptics everywhere, nobody could fathom that fashion could contain Mindful Glamour™. Yet we persisted and each day our journey on our unchartered road is exciting. Each day we see the world in a completely new light.
Taking a road less traveled means putting yourself at risk, making yourself vulnerable, and willing to accept the unknowns with grace. It makes you resolute to continue the journey each day and reach your desired destination. Many times the destination is unclear, yet being present each day somehow clears the way for the next step. Usually the universe also chips in to guide you to your next step.
The road less traveled is about having faith and hope. Faith that you are doing the right thing and traveling on the right path, and hope that where you end up is where your dreams will become reality.
I encourage people to look for that hidden path in their lives. If work doesn’t make you happy, go find another job. If where you live isn’t for you, go in search for a new city. If you always wanted to go on a wild trek, do it. All these “ifs”… look and listen to them. See what those “ifs” are telling you. Then take the first step on your road less traveled and never look back.
