Thankful Thursday - The Road Less Traveled.


“Be fearless. Have the courage to take risks. Go where there are no guarantees. Get out of your comfort zone even if it means being uncomfortable. The road less traveled is sometimes fraught with barricades bumps and uncharted terrain. But it's on that road where your character is truly tested”  Katie Couric

The road less traveled - it's where life really hits the dirt...it's where the fun stuff happens and the exciting. And the people you meet on that road are kindred spirits...the ones not afraid to take a risk, or try new things, and mostly, follow their heart. 

I think that road less traveled is anything that makes someone's heart sing. It could be as simple as smiling at a stranger, loving your family, or starting new adventures when everyone's telling you, don't do it. The road less traveled.....following the whisper of your heart.  Grateful for....

-being mom to a couple of amazing girls.
-the simple things...wandering the wooded trails, shooting pics of birds and animals and nature. Photography helps me to really see, not only with my eyes but with my heart. I love that. I come home happy, content, and in awe of life. 
-dreaming out loud with a couple of kindred spirits, women who want to make a difference also. We've been tossing some ideas around, things to do in the new year. Awesome dreaming, planning and running with friends. 
-Mostly that He's a constant and the Voice that calls me to take the road less traveled. The neat thing, He's there on that road walking way ahead so there's nothing to ever be afraid of. 

Happy Thursday, Guys.

Even the road less traveled, the bumpy and twisty road outside of our comfort zone, even that road is still lit up with the lamp of God's Word. All we need to do is follow the footsteps of the Light of the World!

GOD BLESS!

Less or more travelled - take the road the the Lord shows you.

Enter it by the narrow gate.
