There are times in life we feel lost, utterly lost.
I’ve certainly had a few of those. They are not pretty, I think so because we are alone during those times.
No one can really tell us what to do. Really, nobody knows us as well as oursleves and if we don’t know what to do or where to go, how the hell is somebody else going to know?
This are the times in our lives when the saying “Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find yourself” fits perfectly, because indeed, that is what happens.
What does that phrase means
Sometimes we have to lose ourselves in order to find ourselves.
What do you guess? Think of a time in you life when you felt lost. I can give some examples. Are you happy in your job? Are you happy with yourself? Right now, do you feel amazing of waking up tomorow for work? Ha, if not, I’m guessing you are a bit lost.
Good! Being lost most be a good thing isn’t it?! At least we now know we are on the task of finding oursleves.
Not long ago I had a girlfriend that always asked me what I wanted to do with my life. To be honest, my answers were lame, I really did not knew much about what I wanted to do and it was embarrasing to say the least.
One night I came home furious at myself and started to ask what is it that I wanted to do with my life. Ha, I remember writing in a notebook random things that I wanted to do like climbing Mt. Everest and buy a Harley Davidson.
I felt lost.
With time I began to realize that the reason I was lost, was not because I did not knew what to do with my life, but because I had lost myself.I mean, think about it, I wanted to climb a fuckin mountain, for christ sake, as if that would gave me the deep meaning I had lost.
Once it got bad (depression level bad) I began to form a relationship with myself again. I began to understand myself in the process and discovered that wanting to do stuff is an excuse for not knowing who we are. I mean, sure, climbing a mountain is great, but what I really wanted to find up there was myself, my long forgotten self.
Being lost gets you in touch with yourself again. Feeling lost is something very, very personal. We all have different journys and I know it’s scary, I’ve been there myself.
People spend their lives in college and then at work and all the time we are told what to do. People like being told what to do because taking decisions is scary. There is no ultimate answer for what you or anyone else have to do. I can tell you to live you life in this way or the other, but in ultimate instance, its your choice, you have to make a decision of what you like and what you think living is worth for.
Not until you are really lost you find yourself.
Finding yourself is amazing, you are no longer waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Please sit and meditate on this. Develop a relationship with yourself and I promise that you will find your voice, your unique voice, and once you find it, you won’t want this amazing ride we are in to end.
Don’t wait! People try to figure their whole lives what to do and by the time a decision is made, they’ve become older. Don’t let that happen. Get lost, find yourself.
