Re- routing

I’m a traffic phobic and driving at high speed scares me to the bones! But I still managed to learn driving and occasionally drive too! It’s been seven years of safe driving within the radius of 15-20 kms.

My school time friend was on her Delhi visit and it was mandatory to have a get-together. After a long group chatting; day, venue and time was finalized.

Shall I drive down ……?

On the highway, vehicles speeding up like in a formula one race and others over taking from left and right!

Ahhh…. Can’t stop my breath for 30 kms!! Bad idea.

My good friend came to my rescue and offered me a ride. (She behind the wheel. Wow!)

“Good yaar you know all the routes in Delhi”.

“Nah, its GPS! My trusted friend on the road”

“Yeah…cool!”

We were so engrossed in talking that she missed the left turn (as directed by the GPS).

“Now what?”

“Chill yaar, it will reroute; just five minutes extra, but we’ll reach our destination.”

Reroute- few minutes extra- but you will reach your destination

Isn’t it true in life too?! We all aim to achieve something or to reach somewhere. We follow a path to fulfill our dreams; a plan always waiting for execution; a time-table set, an hourglass placed. But how many of us actually reach the destination?

Many of us give up when the road looks unfamiliar or not as per our blue print. We lose patience when it takes a little longer to travel. We panic when something happens out of plan. The dreams shatter and destination blurs.

We all have our own GPS fitted in the minds but we forget to activate it. Just feed the destination and simply follow it. Your ‘will’ will take you there. It will reroute the travel whenever you’ll divert from the path. You may reach a little later than the scheduled time but you will definitely arrive. You may get distracted and miss the turn; it will guide you to the next one.

Drive your life fearlessly, be alert, follow the GPS (will power), reroute it as many times as it requires but make sure you reach your destination!

“You have arrived at your destination.” The GPS declared.
