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.
– Robert Frost –
Have you ever looked back on your past and thought, “Why did I take that path and not the other?” I sometimes do this, especially when my anxiety is at its worst. Sometimes I feel like the traveler in Robert Frost’s poem looking at two paths in the yellow wood with decisions that overwhelm me. His poem describes to a “T” what it’s like living with anxiety, at least for me.
See me in black and white as if to reflect my “dark and twisty” feelings of late. My hat covers my face as if shielding me from my own mean internal thoughts. It blocks my face, hiding what I feel inside. The light that shines from the window reminds me that my friends and family are still there, even if I don’t see them. They are the beacon of light that pulls me out of my darkness and into the light. The pose that I chose causes my head to turn to the light from the window reminds me that no matter how dark it gets, eventually the “colors” will return and things will be okay.
It felt so good to do a post reflecting my feelings inside today. I’ll be fine next week, but this week, I’m exhausted both mentally and physically after being sick off and on. I have an infection of some kind (no, it’s not the flu) but won’t get to the doctor until March. Hopefully, even with my medical history, it will only be an infection and require antibiotics. So, I’m going to leave this here and go to bed now, Adventurites…See you next time. ~LA
