Short and Sweet

I love this poem, The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost. Here it is in its entirety if you want to read or re-read it.

It reminds me so much of sobriety. Today I am so thankful that I took the road less traveled by and stopped drinking alcohol. That is what we are doing when we get sober- making a choice that everyone doesn’t have the chance to make. For whatever reason, we were given a choice. Everyone HAS a choice, but some people are never able to truly move past denial into recovery. That thought keeps me humble, as well as really grateful for what I have going on in my life right now.

  1. have always loved this poem too… in fact theroadlesstraveled was my first choice for a blog title but someone else got there first! thanks for the revisit and let’s keep on down that better road! xx

  2. How very apt this poem is, Jen. Thank you for posting this. It helps me to see taking the path of sobriety as the positive choice that it is 🙂 (And I have been super grumpy today, so needed the both the reminder and the lift that the poem gave me!) xxx

  3. I will re never this, not everyone is making the choice. We should all be proud we gave and do whatever possible to stay on this road 🙂 I’m grateful too and very grateful I’m not alone on this journey!!!
