When you come to a fork in the road

Good old Yogi Berra.
I have spent a few wonderful weeks at Kripalu yoga in Massachusetts.
One very bright instructor told us we had to make a decision regarding which hike we wanted to take, the beginner, the intermediate or the tough one. BUT, looking at our faces he admonished us that it really didn't matter which one we picked, so not to stress.
"You will be where you are supposed to be"
So, if I took the "other" fork any of those million forks that came in front of me. I would not be who I am today.
That's not to say that I wouldn't like to tell the skinny at 16 me - "you won't remember that piece of cake, or that really good cookie. So savor the moment, don't savor the taste of the moment."
