The path divides; distinct, obvious, yet uncertain. The choice is clear, but the choosing still difficult. One way is well-worn, gentle and forgiving, but ends far from where you want to be; the other is arduous, steep, and faces into a bitter wind, yet follows the path you had already decided on. It grabs at you, pushes you back, wears you down and makes you second-guess your certainty. But it does not change the fact that you know it is the only path you can ultimately take.
You are not courageous, you are not righteous, but you are strong.
