Recently while driving to a new location in an unfamiliar area, I was surprised to find that the exit I was supposed to take was closed. A quick moment of panic went through me… “Oh my god how am I going to get to my appointment? Am I going to be late?” These thoughts quickly ran through my mind as I passed the exit I was planning on taking to my destination.
But then my navigation did something fabulous. Instead of shutting down or turning off or malfunctioning, it read, “REROUTING”. It took only a few seconds for a new set of directions that led me to my destination and relief came over me as I laughed out loud. It dawned on me that I was never in jeopardy of not making it to my destination; As long as I continued I would get there.
So I ask, how good is your navigation system? We all have one… it doesn’t matter if you have thought about it or not, something drives us to think, act and believe what we do. We say what we say and react how we react because of the system we have built over the years.
Sometimes we can’t get there how we planned but we can allow ourselves to REROUTE us whenever is necessary. We each have this system. We each have the capability to set our goal and see to it that we get there without malfunctioning. REROUTING is a gift. It is another way. It is an alternative. It is one step closer to the destination in which a different experience can be had and your destination can be reached.
Play with this idea today. When something doesn’t go as you wish it would try not to let your outdated navigation system let you react or continue as you did in the past. Allow yourself to take a few seconds and REROUTE. Keep your thoughts on your goal or your destination and know that there is ALWAYS another way. Much Love.
