We truly desire that each day will go as we planned and assume that our ideas about this are correct so they are all we need. However, as we all know, this doesn’t happen. Before we know it, our well-laid plans go awry. And usually we view the detours as difficulties.
It is important to remember that you are viewing your life from a limited perspective – from a vantage point that automatically excludes anything outside your realm of reality. This means you are aware of only a fraction of what is possible and only some of what is necessary. Therefore, what is viewed as a difficulty is usually just an opportunity in disguise. It is the detours that promote an expanded view of life and growth.
So, when your day takes a detour, remember to view it with curiosity and move toward it with a sense of adventure and possibility. You will discover there is more to living than you have imagined.
