The Obstructed Road

The other day, the road I usually take was closed due to a gas main break.

I was forced to take an alternate route – throwing off my entire routine.

At first, the unfamiliarity was very unsettling.

I got lost. I was confused. The traffic was grueling.

I was about to scream at the universe, when one of my favorite songs came on the radio.

So I smiled. I sang. And I eventually found my way.

Today, I chose to take that unconventional route. It was scenic. The road had less potholes. And I had no trouble finding my way.

It now feels comfortable.

Sometimes you need an obstructed road to be reminded that change is defined as something different – not something worse.

And sometimes having no choice breeds even greater options.
