Handling Detours

By Adira Royal

In January 2022, I created a plan to eliminate debt, while working toward a new idea. My goals were in writing, objectives clear and concise. Strategy clear enough to move forward at least I thought. After breaking my leg 2019 then having surgery. The plan was to wait until it healed to see if anything else needed to be done.

Detours are Essential

A call came at the end of January 2022 saying I have been approved for my second surgery removal of hardware. All of this came at a time when the plan was in motion. Lost my second job after being out for a month. In my 20’s and 30’s my thought process when there were problems is only set up to believe prayer will fix it and wait and be of good courage. Now a young woman it occured to me maybe you need some help with this plan. Pay attention to opportunities or listen for direction during this time of detour.

Detour by definition

(noun) a long or roundabout route that is taken to avoid something or to visit somewhere along the way. (Dictionary)


I heard it said by a wise man, sometimes God takes you the long way around to work in you somethings and to get somethings out of you. Just like a Potter with the clay on the wheel. My journey has been a series of ups, downs, ins and outs. Nevertheless, it all is for development and growth. The children are now & the future letting them know that life will take you off track. Be not discouraged there is clarity ahead.
