We all have days, weeks, months, and even years where we feel lost. You feel like you don't really belong anywhere. Home doesn't really feel like home. You are searching for a place to feel like you belong. Searching for any destination that will make you feel less lost.
You constantly ask yourself where you need to go or what you need to do to not feel lost. But the whole time we are searching for a place to not feel lost, a place that feels like home again, we are searching for ourselves. We are looking everywhere we can to find ourselves again.
When you feel lost, it can feel like you are just going through the motions of life. But it is good to feel lost sometimes. It means you are aware you want to change. It means you want to find yourself again, to go back to truly living.
Some people achieve finding themselves by going somewhere. Some achieve it by doing something. Whatever you think will help you find yourself, do that. Keep trying things until you don't feel as lost. You'll pick up some new experiences on the way, and it will be an exciting trip. There is so much hope for you to find yourself when you try. When you do the things you love. When you just take a break from life. When you take some time to yourself and just take everything in. It may not be quick, but you will find yourself again.
When you do start to find yourself, you change. You accept the things around you that are out of your control. You switch things up. You aren't just going through the motions anymore. You start to realize you are so much more than you think.
If you had asked me about a year ago who I was, I would probably keep it simple, and tell you I'm a runner. This is true, but I have been in and out of running for the past six months due to injuries, and it has made me realize I am so much more than that. I am not just one thing that I love to do.
I am a sister. I am a friend. I am a hard worker. I am someone who motivates and supports others. When you realize that you are so much more than you think you are, your life changes, and it all starts to feel a little more put together. It all starts to fall into place.
Do the things you love to do. Appreciate the little things. Focus on yourself. Here's to finding yourself more than just once. Happy exploring.
