To anyone who has ever went on a detour in their life,
Think back to the time where your life seemed to go in never-ending circles that didn't seem to make any sense. You would try to control it and stop it from happening all over again, but you find yourself back to where you started. It started to become discouraging, and in a sense, you started to lose yourself. You started to fall into your emotions, not knowing how to pick yourself back up. It seemed like as much as you tried, it just wasn't enough to be back to where you wanted to be.
You felt like you were no longer on track with the way you envisioned your life.
Now you find yourself stuck at a road. You can continue to fight to try to get yourself back where you imagined yourself, or you can take a different road. This new road means that you start to lose all the planning you've ever done for this journey. You will be taking a risk, as you walk down the path of a new adventure you didn't plan for. You are stuck in between your comfort zone, but being engulfed in weak emotions, and having a new journey that can bring you somewhere else in life. Or maybe it can bring you where you want, but it's a detour. What do you do now?
You take a deep breath, and you take this risk.
Remember that it does not matter where you start. It does not matter if it took time away from you. If you have a dream, go and chase for it. Yes, you may not have envisioned yourself to be where you are at now, but remember that there is always a solution. It's up to you to see that solution and take that opportunity to see where it brings you. It may not be what you want at that moment, but everything happens for a reason. What's for you will not pass you. Continue to go for your dreams. It does not matter if you do not know how to accomplish them at this moment, but start somewhere. Don't be stuck on something that is not working the way it should be because it's your comfort zone. If you have a big enough heart to go for what you're passionate about, you will figure it all out as you're on the journey.
Action is key because once you start and concentrate on it, your mind and body will start walking you towards your goal.
Taking a detour in life is part of a journey. Be optimistic about it. It is all a learning experience, and it is a story to be told when you finally reach your goal. This journey is what makes who you are now. Not many people have the strength and courage to admit that they had to change their track because what they were doing was not working out. Not many people have the strength to tell him/herself to consider the second road in achieving what they want.
But guess what?
You are strong enough. You have the courage and strength that others do not have. You have the ability to pick yourself up when things are hard. You're able to self-access yourself and quality of life. You continue to make improvements every single day despite the changes being made. And even better, you start to become yourself again. You're no longer encompassed in those emotions, and you finally can have that load off your shoulders. You have control of your life, even if it was a detour.
Every reroute in life is swollen with the possibility of redemption. It is in your own hands to do so. You control your mind in how you want to look at it, and you control the acceptance of new opportunities in your life down this new journey.
