Did you hit a detour?


Share this :   | | | |

If you were planning to go a certain direction in a relationship, or any other kind of project, and suddenly you come up against an obstacle… it might be a detour or it might be a sign to reassess your goals.

Either way, take time to  stop and assess the situation. When we heedlessly barrel ahead, determined to get where we wanted no matter what, life will generally  refuse to cooperate with such stubbornness.  You may find yourself  facing more and more roadblocks, until you reach a point of such stress and frustration that you finally stop. And consider your goals and whether you’re following the best course of action.

Easier to do it now, rather than later. Right?  A stitch in time saves nine. And in this case, re-evaluating your path, goals and methods will save you a lot of headaches in the long run.

your happiness guru,

Evelyn

I think you've made a really good point here, Evelyn.

Your post reminded me of that old adage, "Think before you speak". And it's also well worth it to think before you forge ahead into disaster territory.

I believe shortcuts can sometimes be a good thing and sometimes ... not. Everyone is in a hurry nowadays and I feel like we're tripping over our own feet. We could benefit in so many ways by taking a deep breath and taking time to be more mindful, more savvy and cautious about what we involve ourselves in and who we choose to include in our circle of influence.

We have to be careful and not allow ourselves to get to a point where we're shouting, "Stop this ride and let me get off!"

Great insights,
Melanie
