Enjoy the ride. Enjoy the view.
The beaten path, the side street or country roads all hold a certain kind of magic.
Don't get stuck following a map that doesn't deviate from the usual. Life can't always be, and usually isn't, an exact road to the set destination. Sometimes you want to take a different turn in order to discover that you'll still find your way.
You'll find your way and you will have learned more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
Get off the freeway and take the dirt road.
