What It Means To Be LostJune 12, 2020
I’ve felt lost in my body before.
Lost in my thoughts before.
Lost in my emotions before.
But being lost requires navigation.
Because you don’t just get to keep being lost.
You have to find your way.
We could retrace our steps, go back to where we came from, the old thoughts, old emotions, old habits.
But that takes us nowhere.
I feel lost right now.
It’s a peaceful and agitating feeling all at once.
Knowing my desire to get it right while knowing that it will take being wrong (a lot) in the process.
Yet, what an opportunity.
To seek, learn, navigate.
There are maps. EVERYWHERE.
Ask questions! Read books! Take classes!
Being lost doesn’t mean we need to be found.
Being lost can mean we need to learn our way through.
I may be quieter, because I’m focused.
I may be different, because I’ve learned differently.
I may be lost, but I am navigating.
