You Aren’t Lost, You Just Need To Find Your ‘What Next’

Do you ever become so confused and invested in your thoughts that you just wish there was a pause button?

A button you could press to make everything stop for a moment, a day, a month or even a year just so you had time to collect your emotions and figure out what direction exactly you are heading in?

Do you ever wish you could just fast forward to the future so you can see how your life is going to turn out? So you know if all your hard work right now is going to pay off, or if your choices right now are just a bunch of mistakes?

Do you ever get so lost in life that all your dreams and ambitions become a blur and you have generally no idea if anything you are doing right now is what you want? You question every move and every decision you have ever made because you have hit a wall and you just don’t know…

This sense of unknowing, confusion, lack of direction can really throw people off. They can make you really question and lose touch of who you are as a person. They can make you forget how far it is you have really come and make you challenge your worth and your capabilities.

Hitting this wall can become a really damaging period of your life if you aren’t quick enough to recover and continue on with your journey.

During this time you will make mistakes, you will fall over countless amounts of times and do things that you usually wouldn’t do. Your judgement will be extremely clouded.

But the worst part of all, you probably won’t even care.

The wall will consume all of your emotional energy and leave you with an empty soul. And at the end of the day, once you are trapped in this phase, the only way up is through you.

You are the driver of your own life; you are responsible for picking yourself back up and finding your two feet again.

When this feeling bites away at you day after day after day, you will become fed up with the negativity and find it within yourself to go back to the things that you love and become in touch with your heart and your soul again.

Don’t lose sight of yourself because of a few wrong turns and mistakes in life, instead use these as lessons and motivation to bring you back to speed and continue creating a life and a soul that you can be proud of.

Use this as a means of forming a new version of yourself. One that is stronger, healthier, happier and destined for success.

You aren’t lost, you’re just taking a detour on your wonderful journey. Everything will fall into place perfectly as long as you keep at it. 

So what are you going to do next? TC mark
