Life Without Detour - Is it Possible?

I originally had this in mind for Wordless Wednesday, but I didn't want to delay our Back To School Giveaway.

As you all know I went to see Eat Pray Love on opening weekend, and it highlights life's detours. Is Life Without Detour really possible? Would you really want it?

I sometimes think the detours have made life better. The delayed flights, late trains, missed buses,that resulted in great conversations with a stranger who you now can't imagine life without. While we all deserve life wihout detours, sometimes detours happen. Let yourself enjoy them!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'While I deserve a life without detours, I will see them as the opportunities for growth they really are!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

  1. I would love to see that movie! I agree that we should take our detours in stride and absorb all we can from them. We should see more situations as opportunities just like you said. :)

  2. I've had some great un-expected detours, and delays have sometimes resulted in the most interesting trip memories!

    Just Note: Don't go see it on an empty stomach! :-)
