“Unpredictable”

Unpredictableย – daily post writing prompt

Adj. – not able to be predicted or foreseen

My mind instantly goes to the concept of “the path less traveled.” Here are some thoughts:

-There is no traffic on the extra mile

-To stand out, zig when everyone else is zagging

  • this reminds me of a quote by Warren Buffet, I believe, “be greedy when others are fearful, and be fearful when others are greedy

-the path less traveled is likely to be scarier since few have gone that way, but you can really leave a mark a pioneer. Sure there are more risks, but also more excitement

  • they say there’s a thin line between fear and excitement
  • theres also a thin line between “creepy” and “romantic,” just depends on if you think like them back (sorry, random tangent)

-sometimes it can be more fulfilling to walk your own path than follow in someone else’s footsteps

-a mentor of mine once said, “people can’t follow in your footsteps of you don’t pick up your feet and move”

  • reminds me of parents who made excuses their whole lives and never accomplished anything, but then force their kids to do things they don’t want to do because the parents are trying to live through their kids. But how can your kids achieve when their parents, who should be their role models, have never picked up their feet and moved? Or else they’re destined to follow in your (lack of) footsteps.

-it takes more strength and endurance to walk the path less traveled. Those who don’t opt for the easy, more traveled path will find themselves stronger because they took the hard road.
