The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, 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 marked 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 traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

-Robert Frost-

How many of us actually took the road less traveled? How many of us actually gotten the courage to risk in chasing dreams? If you were given the chance, will you do it for yourself? 
Chances are not given by anyone but yourself, we create our own opportunity and go for it, I believe in that, and you?

Watching myself in 10 years time, and see if I already took a big step and being happy that I chose to chase my dreams instead of playing safe.

We'll see...
