“I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.
I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.
I’m not lost, I’m on my way.” -anonymous
We may think this one bump in the road is the end to all our life long dreams. We are confused and frustrated by all the stop signs slowing us down. No matter how fast we go that final destination still seems so far away.
It is easy to give up or feel hopeless when this happens. We may feel lost and confused. What we do not realize, at this time of despair, is that road blocks are their in our journey to guide us to our true destination. Perhaps what we think we want is not what we really need, but merely our imagination telling us this experience will make us a happier person. We may believe we belong somewhere, but then discover we actually belong somewhere completely different.
The journey of life is all about trial and error. Rejection and confusion comes with it. The way in which we handle the disappointments, brings us closer to finding where we truly belong.
Take every opportunity optimistically. Know that every experience brings us one step closer to our true destination. We must be lost first in order to be found and that is ok. Be patient; That one life changing opportunity is right around the corner.
