Sometimes I follow the path, not veering left or right. It’s just easier to go straight at those times. But just about when I’ve had enough of the same boring scenery, I come to an interesting fork in the road. I’d passed the other forks and continued. This time, something grabs my attention. Maybe it’s vibrant red tulips or sun-bright daffodils. Or maybe it’s an unusually majestic pine tree. Maybe it’s something I heard that’s reflected in the landscape. I’m can’t always pinpoint the motivating factor and don’t always analyze the reason, but I take the turn.

New scenery and suddenly I’m energized. That’s when the new adventure begins!
