When you come to a fork in the road you can do one of three things. One, you can just keep walking and not think about which road you’re on. Two, you can stop and look for “signs,” that might tell you which road to take, this does include flipping a coin, by the way. And three, you can turn around and go back the way you came. Okay, there is a fourth way, a way artists, poets and the like, take all the time, and that’s to simply turn to the side and go in that direction, not turning back, or choosing either of the road offered by the fork. But right now, that’s not really the point.
If you’re dealing with a fork in the road, it doesn’t matter which road you take. The true meaning of the fork in the road is: Don’t think about the road you didn’t take. That’s the lesson of the story.
Life is unpredictable. We never know which road to take but in case you haven’t noticed, we choose roads everyday, every time we do anything. See, that’s what a choice IS, picking one thing over, or instead of, another. The trick is to just enjoy the road you’re on. If you hold on to the road not taken, your fantasy of what might have been, may take over your life and destroy the road you’re already on.
