The Complexities of Life


GPS can take you through the full spectrum of emotion.

When you make your turns on time, things are great. You’re singing along to your playlist. You’re on time to your destination.

Somewhere along the way, you missed a turn. And we all know what happens when you miss a GPS turn.




Cue the panic. Getting rerouted sucks for many reasons, the main one being that you don’t know what’s next. You turn down the stereo’s volume so that you can make sure that you hear each direction that GPS won’t repeat. Your nerves…well, they are shot to hell.

You make it to your destination and you let out a sigh of relief. After gathering yourself, you realize that you now have an alternative way to make it to your destination. In life, we get rerouted all the time. We panic when things don’t go as planned because we don’t know what to expect. That makes sense.

Embrace the unexpected. You never know where it will lead you.

Until next time,
