DETOURS “GETTING BACK ON TRACK AFTER UNANTICIPATED LIFE EVENTS”

DETOURS                  “GETTING BACK ON TRACK AFTER UNANTICIPATED LIFE EVENTS”

ONE OF THE EASIEST THINGS IN LIFE IS TO SET GOALS.  ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS IN LIFE IS TO FOLLOW THEM WITHOUT A DETOUR OF SOME KIND.  WHAT CAUSES US TO “TAKE A DETOUR” FROM REACHING OUR DREAMS AND GOALS?  IT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU TO KNOW DETOURS ARE VERY COMMON, AND WHEN THEY OCCUR, (detours) THEY ARE ALWAYS WITHIN OUR POWER TO CHANGE. GETTING BACK ON TRACK IS WITHIN OUR POWER TO CHANGE.  HOWEVER, SOME DETOURS ARE HARDER TO GET NEW DIRECTION TOWARDS. 

REMEMBER, IN LIFE WE ALWAYS HAVE THE POWER OF CHOICE.  HOWEVER, TO MAKE CHOICES IDEAL TO REACH OUR GOALS AND FOLLOW THE PERFECT PLAN HAVE DETOURS ALONG THE WAY THAT WE AREN’T IN CONTROL OF.  THE KEY IS HOW QUICKLY WE GET “BACK ON TRACK”.  FOR EXAMPLE, LET’S SAY OUR GOAL IS TO BUILD A BUSINESS.  THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE CAN DECIDE TO DO, BUT LIFE EVENTS SUCH AS JOB LOSS, LACK OF CAPITAL, POOR BUSINESS  PLANNING, ECONOMY, AND PERSONAL TRAGEDY CAUSE DETOURS IN OUR PLANS. 

WE MAY FEEL WE ARE IN CONTROL OF ALL OF OUR DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS AND YES, GOALS.  WE HAVE A HUGE SAY IN THIS BUT WE ARE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS AND ARE NOT PERFECT.  “PERFECT CHOICES AND PERFECTION IN HUMANS DO NOT EXIST.”  LUCK, EDUCATION, GOAL SETTING, AND ABILITY TO AVOID DETOURS OR TO FIND ANOTHER DIRECTION IN OUR LIFE DOES.  THIS IS A BLOG, WHICH I OFTEN DO RESEARCH FOR BEFORE WRITING ON THE TOPIC.  TODAY, THESE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS AS TO WHAT CREATES SUCCESS AND ABILITY TO GET BACK ON TRACK WHEN A DETOUR IN OUR LIFE HAS OCCURRED. 

EVERYONE THAT READS THIS OR FOLLOWS ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS AWARE I LOST MY SISTER ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS AGO.  UNLESS YOU PERSONALLY HAVE LOST SOMEONE WHO YOU LOVED DEEPLY AND GREW UP WITH OR WATCHED GROW UP, IT IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND THAT WE DO NOT JUST GRIEVE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME RESOLVING OUR PAIN AND MOVE ON. WE ALL GRIEVE DIFFERENTLY.  ONE THING THAT LEADS US ON A DETOUR FROM OUR ASPIRATIONS ARE LIFE EVENTS IS DEATH OF A LOVED ONE AND UNEXPECTED TRAGEDY. 

SOMETIMES WE DO NOT REALIZE THE IMPACT THESE KINDS OF LIFE EVENTS HAVE ON US.  LONG TERM TRAUMA AND GRIEVING OF A LOVED ONE SUCH AS A SISTER, MOTHER, WIDOW OR WIDOWER, A CHILD LOSING A MOTHER, OR A MOTHER LOSING A CHILD, FINANCIAL TRAGEDY, ALONG WITH UNEXPECTED HEALTH ISSUES AND MENTAL HEALTH ARE ALL PART OF TRAGEDIES WHICH OPEN THE DOOR FOR DETOURS IN OUR GOALS AND PLANS.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER AND DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF DETOURS. 

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF DETOUR-1.  A LONG OR ROUNDABOUT ROUTE THAT IS TAKEN TO AVOID SOMETHING OR TO VISIT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY.  2.  AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE FOR US TO USE TO AVOID TRAFFIC. 

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-EVENTS OR ROADBLOCKS IN LIFES PLANS. 

SOMETIMES IN LIFE, WE MUST TAKE A DETOUR TO GET OURSELVES TOGETHER AND IT MAY NOT BE EASY.  HOWEVER, DETOURS ARE ALSO A PART OF LIFE.  HOW WE DEAL WITH THEM IS A CHOICE.  WE MAY FIND OUR GOALS AND DREAMS CHANGE WITH OUR EXPERIENCES.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE CLEAR WHEN WE FIND OURSELVES MAKING CHANGES SO WE CAN DECIDE IF WE WANT TO PURSUE ANOTHER ROUTE IN LIFE.  THANKS FOR READING.  SAMANTHA
