Seeing the fork in the road

We rarely have a literal fork in the road or a decision that is so clearly binary.

However, daily, there are tiny choices that will shape our becoming.

Often, these are decisions of degree between the known and unknown. Where we are confident and where it may feel risky.

Yet there is only one direction that grows hope…


If we knew,
would we go there,
or choose instead
the safety
of the familiar
and miss it all?

Or walk into
the welcoming,
unknown of
becoming, with
hope instead.

+ Sue Heatherington

In writing yesterday’s post about the moments that create our becoming, I rediscovered this poem.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
