Today I lost my way.
But it was actually okay.
We were driving upstate and we passed our turn off from the freeway. Actually we went two exits too far. And now we were lost and late and other friends were driving up and I was worried they'd get there before us.
But guess what? I had a map in the back seat of the car. It turned out that near the exit we came off at there was a road that led directly to a village that we knew and wasn't very far from our house. It wasn't that much longer a jounrney than the one we normally take, and we got to see a whole new part of the Catskills that was really beautiful.
And even if our friends had arrived before us (which they didn't), they would have amused themselves, maybe chatted in the car, or gone for a walk. Who knows?
And best of all, I got to remember that sometimes it's good to lose your way and to realise that everything will work out just fine. I want to love my life enjoying the detour.
