Have you ever had a nagging feeling that something just ain't right? You could have done all the research of what you needed to do, yet still have a nagging feeling that something just wasn't right.
As you proceed to to do everything just like the plan was to get you where you want to be, the nagging feeling that something just ain't right continues. You go over your plans to make sure that the research you did was accurate and proceed.
You keep ignoring the warning signal making you feel like something just ain't right. Then suddenly after all your hard work something happens that makes you clearly see that things weren't meant to turn out like you planned.
You can't look at it as darn I just wasted a lot of time and energy for nothing. Hopefully it didn't cost you to much. What you learned on that journey was what it took to SEE where you needed to go. Otherwise you might have never seen it.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the journey to get you where you need to be will take you first going on a scenic route to get there.
