Detours






We all find ourselves confronted
from time to time
by detours in our life.

We think things will happen one way,
but reality is something else altogether.
So we're off down an unfamiliar road,
griping about what isn't
as much as what is
because we were really attached
(and still are) to the outcome
we imagined.

Learning to love what is
seems like one of the hardest things
a grown-up has to master. . . .
but it's all a matter of realizing
that 
you can't believe everything you think.
