"Take the next exit and get on the highway." That's what my GPS told me. I looked at the road sign. There were two highways off of that exit. "Which one?" I asked out loud, hoping for an answer. Nothing. I bit my lip and decided to keep to the right. After several miles and silence from the GPS, I realized I'd taken the wrong road. I had to search for the best place to make a U-turn. Seems I'm always making U-turns.
Even in my personal life I'm often having to re-adjust after making decisions that lead me to a place I never wanted to be. Has that ever happened to you? Ever find yourself in a mess and you're not quite sure how you've gotten there? It's a bummer.
When I find myself lost or on the wrong path, I do the same thing I do when I'm driving: I slow down and think about where I want to be going. Then I do what I can to turn myself back around.
What's nice about life is that it doesn't matter how far I've traveled down the wrong path; I can always find my way back.
