Wrong direction, right scenery
Do you ever use the GPS system when you are driving around neighborhoods you know? Do you ever get annoyed when it tries to take you a new way when you know your old way is better? Why do we do that to ourselves?
Well, I turned on my GPS then started getting irritated when it wanted to take me a different way but something inside of me said either turn it off or go with it and try a different way! What a concept! I was not in a rush so I took the way the GPS showed me. Guess what?! I liked that new way better.
It took me through the park (that’s Rock Creek Park for people not from DC). Of course I was only in the park for 2 minutes but it was two scenic minutes that I have been missing for months.
So surrendering to a new way of doing things gave me extra joy and brought a truly sweet moment. Sometimes instead of being annoyed and holding onto old ways, we should be willing to try a new direction. It can really pay off.
And by the way, I got there 2 minutes faster.
To Your One Sweet Life,
