Fork In The Road

Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road…pick it up.”

This is really an interesting quote. It is a think outside of the box comment. We think of the fork in the road to mean that we have two choices – go left or right, but you don’t have to choose only one.

What if you decide instead to blaze your own path down the middle between the two? Why not pick up the fork instead?

A Buddhist saying “There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to Truth: not going all the way, and not starting.

So when you come to those inflection points in your life, take a moment to “pick up the fork” and go down the road to truth that is you – even if you are making your own road as you go along.
