Long Short Cuts.
Over the weekend we had to go into town. Sydney-town for us is about an hour’s drive from where we live. The route that we usually take is the shortest (in distance and time), but on this particular Saturday, there was an accident so we had to go the longer way…which on this occasion was the quickest way.
Had I gone the normal route, although the distance in kilometres (or miles) would have been shorter, the journey time would have been longer as we would have been stuck in the traffic jam.
Sometimes life forces us to take the longer route to get to our destination. Sometimes the detour was unplanned or unintentional, caused by our wrong turns, other times…life has a way of knowing that if we go one way it would delay our journey, or cause us to be in harms’ way, so it takes us on a longer route but it gets us to where we are headed quicker.
Whichever way we go, we will eventually get there. Be thankful for the detours and delays, they either teach you something or protect you from disasters.
The key is —> we keep moving forward.
Don’t. Give. Up. There is a purpose to your delay.
