“…water or rivers always seek the easiest path downhill, and that was why the waters often dropped great distances over falls.”
– L. E. Modesitt Jr., Antiagon Fire
It is so easy to take the path of least resistance, to just follow the path followed by others or the path where we see the least amount of conflict. Life would probably be easier for us if we handled some of the conflicts in our life instead of just avoiding them. And life might be more fun and rewarding if we travelled away from the common path and found our own.
What path are you following at the moment?
