Stay the course, do not sway of the course, keep on going and follow through. Good advice, most of the time, but we need to allow life to happen, and sometimes when life happens we need to be able to redirect ourselves, or to allow life to take us where we need to go.
Change happens daily, change is part of life, and we need to learn to allow it to happen, sometimes that means stepping out of the way and sometimes that means getting caught up in the flow. Change will happen either way; the only difference is how we choose to respond to it.
All too often we set our plans and stick to it, regardless of the world around us, and often that leads to disaster, and a total breakdown of the plan, and in the end the change we wanted is not the change we got.
Detours are part of life, they lead us down different paths, and sometimes we end up where we wanted to be, and more often then not we end up where we thought we would never go.
To survive the detours we need to learn that life is a fluid entity, it is constantly in flux, changing and redefining it self, and all too often we are not, we are running from the current.
The decision to run with the change does not guarantee a positive outcome, and the decision to run from the change can lead to a positive one. Each option is a risk, and you have to manage that risk, and learn to see the end, to your best ability, but mostly you need to allow the process to happen regardless of your decision.
Change happens, to us and to the world around us, we are in flux at all times, how do you want to handle it? How do you see yourself when the current of life shifts? Can you allow it to challenge you? Or do you have to control it? Will the change break you or make you stronger?
Some changes are a soft gentle wind others are hurricanes of anger and resentment. Change is a constant, change is a fact, and we need to deal with it, and grow with it, or be covered up in its wake by the debris of life.
