When you travel as much as I do, you will inevitably take some wrong turns along the way. Even with the best directions, GPS, or even road map (yes, those still exist!), it will happen. Sometimes you may go around in circles. Maybe even get lost. It happens. Well, not to me, of course, but I’ve heard it happens to some people! (Just kidding!!)
The same is true with our life. Sometimes we take a few wrong turns along the way. Maybe it’s choosing the wrong partner, the wrong job, even the wrong friends. It could be just one dumb decision that you’d like to do over again. (Boy do I have more than one of those!)
Maybe, just maybe, you find yourself constantly moving, but just going around and around and around in one big circle. Or perhaps you feel like you’ve come to a dead-end and don’t know how to get turned around.
Don’t even try to tell me you never feel this way. I feel this way all the time and I can’t be alone. But I’m not afraid to admit it. Life is hard, but I have good news, my friends…these aren’t dead-ends, they are just detours in life.
Everyone takes wrong turns along the way. The difference is how we respond to them. Because at every dead-end we face, we have a choice. Sit still and hope the situation changes, or turn around and start over.
And guess what, you always have a second chance and an opportunity to start over. It’s called tomorrow!
