Being Lost

Many of us will reach points in our lives where we feel uncertain of just about everything. It's a strange time in one's life to reach this point. Sometimes you won't be sure of who you are, what you want, or where you are going. Sometimes you come to this awkward stand still and feel indifferent to almost everything. You feel almost numb. Things that were once exciting aren't anymore. Certain people aren't funny anymore. You don't even feel the same way when you listen to your favorite song.

Imagine hearing silence even though you are in a room full of bustling people. Everything is in fast forward and on mute. You are standing there without a clue as to what is exactly happening and all you can think to do is just observe and try to take it all in. You don't feel sad or in pain; just confused and frustrated by so many little things. It's like silent chaos. I think that is what it means to be lost.

 Everyone should go through a period like this at least once in their lives. It isn't a bad thing to be lost. It is a sign of you challenging your belief and value system and changing your general view of the world.  You are reassessing what is really important to you and what you want your life to be about. Something about the old way wasn't working anymore and instead of holding onto a failed system and philosophy to remain comfortable, you have decided to move forward in order to see truth.

 Life is about finding truth, but truth is always changing as life continues to evolve. You shouldn't always be certain of everything all time. Something that was once true yesterday, may not be so today. The most important thing about change is to surrender to it. Accept it. No matter how scary it may appear to be, you can't fight it. Fighting will make the process difficult and painful and no one wants that. Just trust and know somehow, some way, that this confusing period of transition is the best thing that could happen right now. You are evolving and growing into a better version of yourself. You are blessed.
