You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
~ Dr. Seuss
Feeling lost is a very normal human emotion. And it is especially common when we are going through change.
When we find ourselves in that in-between space: in between jobs, relationships, projects… when we’ve given something up, or lost that something which has helped define us…
it’s normal to feel hollowed out, lonely, directionless, lost.
And in that space it’s okay to not know where you’re going.
There is a wisdom in this Universe. It is greater than anything that you will muster as an individual. It carries you along in its flow, whether you are aware of it or not.
This wisdom contrives for us wonders and synchronicities far beyond anything we may ever imagine or dream for ourselves.
So our job is not to have all the answers. Our job isn’t even about asking the right questions.
When life is difficult,
when we don’t know where we are going…
our job is to just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Learn to fill yourself up on your own. Do the things you can do. Take care of yourself and do the best you can. Honour your own values and principles. Live from integrity.
If you keep putting one foot in front of the other, eventually the way will find you – the path will become clearer – new doors will open, new companions will show up along the way.
So for now, keep walking.
We kid ourselves into thinking we ever know where we are going – life is so much stranger and more wonderful than that.
It’s okay to be scared – know that this is all part of the journey.
Keep going and don’t think about it or plan into the future so much or you’ll miss all the glorious stuff going on right now, right in front of you.
The fact is, it’s usually when we don’t know where we’re going that we find ourselves.
