Don’t Get Into a Snit About Detours

Queenisms are original, trademarked jolts of inspiration by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She didn’t always know where she was going and sometimes she was good and lost. Yet she couldn’t help but notice that occasionally the detours provided the most delightful surprises – as long as she wasn’t in too much of a snit about being lost to pause and look around. ~ Queenisms™

Have you ever taken a wrong turn and then been humbled by the beauty you see. You might have missed that stunning view if you were so distressed and upset about the detour that you couldn’t look around and see the gift. Sometimes even the most difficult bump in the road comes with a surprisingly wonderful new opportunity. Finding love after losing love, learning a new skill and landing the job of your dreams after losing a job, moving and bonding with a new community after losing a home – these are biggies. But smaller, more subtle surprises are just around the corner, just a shift away, when we open ourselves up to seeing them.

Have you every taken a wrong turn and found yourself in just the right place? What if we viewed “DETOUR AHEAD” as a sign that reads “ADVENTURE AHEAD?”

    It’s all about the detours. Sometimes it’s the only way we experience new things that we typically would not have the nerve to explore

    That is so true Queen Beth. We look back on some of our biggest adventures and realize we might have been too frightened to even embark on them if we hadn’t been forced to by a detour. Luckily, we were.
