We are always in a hurry to get where we want to, taking the shortest possible route and getting frustrated when we encounter traffic jams and delays.
It’s a well known saying to stop and smell the roses/flowers for we live just once, but we especially in today’s world disregard this as we think what we need to do is way more important and breaking the journey is only a waste of time.
Sometimes, fate steps in and gives us a detour that takes us on another route, different from where we planned to go, along the scenic route.
A blocked road, a flat tire, or a breakdown of the car cause hindrance to our travel but changes the time frame of our journey.
Who knows what dangers are averted when we travel in a different time frame or take a new route, for we cannot see the parallel timelines.
These detours of life sometimes brings very pleasant surprises along the way.
