OTV Magazine – Trusting Life’s Detours

Categories Life

Want to know a sure-fire way to get me worked up during the morning school drop-off run? Traffic detours. It seems like they are everywhere lately.

Life has a funny way of regularly throwing us off our intended route. That has certainly been true of the last several years in my life. Sometimes, though, that unplanned detour can hold marvelous adventures, beyond what we ever imagined. The hard part is keeping that in mind when we’re in the thick of the delay.

Join me over at Open Thought Vortex Magazine today. I’m sharing a bit about my first vacation with my husband and the route we’ve taken to today. While you’re there, do check out some of the other terrific piece our writers have shared throughout September on our theme of Journeys.

Lisa A. Listwa is a self-employed writer with experience in education, publishing, and the martial arts. Believing there was more to life than punching someone else’s time clock and inspired by the words of Henry David Thoreau, she traded her life as a high school educator for a life as a writer and hasn’t looked back. She is mother to one glorious handful of a daughter, wife to the nicest guy on the planet, and reluctant but devoted owner of three Rotten Cats. You can find her adventures and thoughts on living life deliberately here on the blog.
