I'm Too Old for This S**t!

Contributor
Heartbreak

This is a first for me, could be therapeutic.  Like the classic Robert Johnson song, I am at a major "Crossroads" in my life.  Three roads have names, the 4th is a complete unknown.  Road #1 is familiar and well traveled but has become fraught w/ obstacles and appears to be headed for a cliff.  Road #2 is new and scary, but exciting; I don't know where it's headed or how long it is.  Road #3 is wide open but dark and frightening.  Road #4 is a mystery and has yet to reveal itself.  I feel like a kid's toy, spinning around in the intersection.  Every time I stop, I'm facing a different direction, but I don't have enough confidence in myself to take a step ... How do I choose?  What if it's the wrong step?  Can I change my mind if I make the wrong choice?  Whatever step I take, it will be life-changing.

Quotes for the day:
"I'm standin' at the crossroads, I believe I'm sinkin' down ..."   Robert Johnson
"Anything other than yes is no, anything other than stay is go, anything less than I love you is lying ..."   John Mayer
