Trust your journey, detours and all. We can get frustrated sometimes when our life doesn’t unfold exactly as we want it to but that blocks us from being open to something even better. I set some specific personal and career goals for myself at the start of the year. I reached a few of them quite quickly but one of them just it ain’t happening despite my best efforts.

When this occurs, I always ask myself if perhaps I’m not looking in the right direction. Maybe it’s not what I’m meant to do. Maybe life has something even better offer.

If we become too stubborn and closed to other possibilities, we miss the opportunities that are presented to us.

As Oprah says, detours, delays and failures are just life’s way of showing us we need to head in another direction. Sure, sometimes it’s just a question of being patient but if you feel like you’ve been hitting your head against the wall forever, maybe it’s time to consider other options.

Don’t despair. Trust your journey. There are periods of action and there are periods of rest and waiting.

Stay attuned to what is going on around you, the signs for your next step are there. Wishing you a wonderful day when you are open and receptive to where life wants to take you.
