Do we chose the path we are to travel in life or is it chosen for us by the circumstances that happens along the way to adulthood? My path more or less chosen for me. Today, I find it too late to take the other fork in the road without causing too much pain, so I endure. We are supposed to guide our children along the way hoping to instill in them the values of goodness, the values of what is right and wrong, but at the same time giving them the freedom to make decisions on their own. Guiding them but letting them chose their own path either right or wrong it will be the path they choose. Loving them unconditionally, being there with open arms to hold them, giving them a shoulder to lean on, and always a gentle hand to wipe away the tears. Along your path there will be many twists, bends you cannot see around, or forks you may want to venture down, try them all. Don't settle for what is expected. Choose your own path.
