Sometimes, it seems, that life forces us to take a detour from what we feel is the correct path to reach our destination.  It is important to remember that a detour is just another way of getting from where we are to where we want to be.  Rather than becoming stressed at the perceived wasting of time or frustrated at having to travel unfamiliar paths, relax and look around you.  What new scenery, what new insights can you glean along the way.  Detours can either lengthen or shorten the time it takes you to reach your destination. Either way, it is the new experiences that are important.  Relish the fact that you have been given the opportunity to learn more lessons.  Occasionally we come across a Stop sign and are forced to wait as the world seemingly passes us by.  Use the time wisely.  Contemplate the world as it passes you by.  What can you learn?  You will begin to move again and will reach your destination in good time. The light will begin to shine from between the trees.  All is as it should be.

What detours have you had to take?  What did you learn about yourself and your world along the way?  Has the detour offered you a quicker route to your destination, or has it forced you to slow down and look around you?

Happy journeying.
