Why Being Lost Is The Most Magical Place To Be

If you’re like me then you’re probably wondering if you’re on the right track; if you’re doing enough in this life so that you’re able to achieve your dreams. If you’re like me then you’re likely worn out from the excessive overthinking because let’s face it, we’re a bit insane. If you’re not like me then tell me, what is your secret to staying sane?
As much as I’d like to have a list of answers as the next guy in this world, I also know that impatience can be misleading and dangerous.

We want success and fame, but the process of getting there is often tedious and at times, overbearing.

I wish I could tell you the formula for instant success because I know you’re much too impatient to know whether you’ll make it or break it in this life.

I wish I could tell you that you won’t have to encounter difficult obstacles along the way, but I also know that challenges will only serve to benefit you in the long run.

I wish I could tell you what you’re meant to do in this world and who you’re supposed to be yet I know that you already have a hunch. Even though nothing is set in stone, you should learn to just enjoy the process.

Embrace this phase in your life where you haven’t figured shit out, where everything is scattered in bits and pieces, and yet you’re fine with how things are.

You’re lost and the experience can rather be exhilarating!

Take a deep breath and feel your heart beat.

Know that what you’re experiencing is normal because you are human.

The feeling that has come over you may be overwhelming, but it doesn’t serve as an excuse for you to stop doing your thing. Hold on to your mojo and hold it tight.

Keep moving forward and never stop putting one foot in front of the other. You got this, you can do it!

We’ve all been in a state of confusion, helplessness, and stress. There are voices that have made a home inside your head and it’s moments like these that tests your true strength. Keep in mind that you’re not alone in this journey and you never will be.

Please know that we are all lost souls trying to find a place where we belong.

We are all lost souls seeking for a place to call our home.

We are all lost souls who are trying to find the right path.

We are all lost souls who are doing everything to keep it together although there’s an innumerable number of cracks in each our respective lives.

Finding your way takes time, but amidst the struggle, you must remind yourself to always keep your chin and your head up.

You may not believe it now, but we are all lost souls in this universe and sometimes you just have to embrace this moment in your life.

Take it with a grain of salt and enjoy being lost. After all, the best adventures in life are mostly those that we never saw coming. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
