The road not taken
I found out recently on a dating app of all places that Robert Frost’s poem, “The Road not Taken” was actually a poem written as a joke to his friend the poet, Edward Thomas.
When they went out walking together,Thomas couldn’t decide what road they should take. He would often complain that they should have taken the other road. When Thomas got the poem from Frost he didn’t realize his friend was mocking him and instead looked to the deeper meaning that this iconic poem has come to represent.
As I close on 2021 it has been a daily practice to choose the next action and the next fork in the road. The most powerful thing I have learned is the power of the pause and that sometimes as my podcast guest and medical intuitive Sherry Anshara shares, “Sometimes the greatest losses are the greatest gain because I found me”.
A near death experience on a business trip to Connecticut would change the trajectory of her life. She would wake up with the words “cellular memory” calling her. Her life’s road would take her through homelessness, judgement, and the discovery of the body’s ability to heal itself by accessing one’s cellular memory.

As 2022 approaches which one will you choose…
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
