You're traveling along your usual route, humming your favorite tune, when all of a sudden you're stopped by that giant arrow that says "DETOUR". You don't know where it's going to take you, what it's going to be like and how much time you're going to lose.
Don't you just find that annoying????
Well, I don't.
It's an adventure! I'm going to see things I hadn't seen before... and besides, something is wrong with the way ahead, and someone else went ahead and create a way around the problem.
How awesome is that????
How we greet detours say a lot about how greet everything in life (after all, life is a journey, right?)
The important thing to keep in mind is the destination (i.e. Goal) we want to reach. The more open we are to alternate routes (i.e. more flexible and adaptable) the higher our chances of actually getting there.
It's only a 'problem' if we take the detour seriously, and let it actually change our direction for good.
So relax and enjoy the view... and if it gets too dark along the way, just remember to...
Keep the light on!
