My life didn’t go exactly as I planned it – but does anyone’s? That’s a Detour.
“A Detourist travels along detours – simple enough. But in addition, a Detourist embraces those unexpected routes as opportunities for growth, change and self-fulfillment. I hope to serve as living proof that a detour can lead to unexpected blessings. Because of my Detour, I’ve learned so much about myself, my world, and the strength I never even knew I had.” – Amy Oestreicher
