Do you remember the poem by Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken?
I’ll spare reciting the whole poem, but the last stanza reads:
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.
It’s easy in any area of life to take the road well traveled, the path of least resistance.
How many times have you set your alarm intending to get up in the morning to exercise?
Or planned to meal prep on Sundays? Or wanted to get to the root of health symptoms?
Only to relive a version of Groundhog’s day. Nothing changes despite your good intentions and desires.
What does it take to see progress – to start and stay on the road less traveled?
One of the keys is prioritizing what’s important.
If I were to tell you that you only had three months to live unless you ate broccoli sprouts every day (ha, ha)? Would you find a way to make sure you always had broccoli sprouts on hand?
When we value our WHY, we will do what it takes to make our health a priority.
