Thursday's Thought - Don't Follow the Path

She's a free spirit, she's a rock, she's a survivor, a dreamer, a doer and a listener...she's your girlfriend! And what do girlfriends do? They talk about life, laugh, cry, reflect on the past and they share thoughts. Grab a glass of coffee and leave a comment or two. For today's thought... an Ashanti Proverb says...

"Do not follow the path. Go where there is no path to begin the trail"

It takes courage to go against the most traveled path. But just about everything you can think of, someone had to do it. Whether it be, electric cars, hazelnut coffee, roller blades or toe rings, someone had to go against the grain or we wouldn't have them. Trying something new is always scary. We want support from others, encouragement, followers and sometimes just a little feeling of comfort. But, really...if we don't get these things, should we put a halt on our dreams? Of course not! I'm sure that people laughed at the Wright brothers, and if not, there had to be doubt. But did that stop them? You'll find signs along your road to success, whether it be warnings, signs of directions or even obstacles. But, when you start new with courage, conviction and self esteem, the only thing stopping you is YOU! And if it that doesn't work... get over it, let it go, shake it off and try something different!
