CONFESSION OF A TRAVELER...
By Alice M. Batzel
Now, in the later/senior years of my life, I find myself looking back and evaluating things. I can honestly say that I haven't always taken the "right road" or "the one less traveled." But, thankfully, I've had the good sense to retrace my steps and get back on the smart path. THAT has made a big difference for me.
It's been my experience, that when one chooses the high road in life, regardless of the difficulty or steep moral/ethical incline required, you'll never regret it. I've found that a person can reach the summit in life and enjoy the view so much more if you don't have to retrace, remap, retravel, climb out of the gully, sidestep the quicksand, or escape rattlesnakes along the way. At least that's what I surmise.
But perhaps, because I've had to do a bit of remapping, and face a few rattlesnakes in my path, the summit has indeed been a sweet view that I can richly appreciate. I've confronted my challenges, including some that others have put before me, and I've no doubt I'll yet face more. But I'm glad my journey has taught me to "value perspective" and affirm my conviction that "there's wisdom in choosing the high road in life," for that's often the road less traveled.
