when you have no direction

Leave a comment


You know those times when you feel lost? Stagnant? Just moving through life with no end goal in sight?

I know you do.

Because I feel that way too.

You may have the best job. The perfect partner. The most loving family. But you may still feel lost and alone in the middle of a world that seems to keep  spinning without you.

It’s ok.

It’s alright to not be “going somewhere” in your life. It’s just fine to be where you’re at. If you’re feeling this way, I have two things to tell you today:

1. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself. I guarantee that you are. I read a quote yesterday that says, “Nothing in nature blooms all year. Be patient with yourself.” Hey, you’re human! Give yourself a break. Treat yourself with the same empathy and compassion that you would show to your best friend. And that leads us to…

2. Take this time to get to know yourself better, to become truly immersed in the beauty that is YOU. What are your hobbies? What foods do you really enjoy? What are your core beliefs? What are the principles that you want to live by?  Write, read, adventure, explore. Be ok with being alone. Become reacquainted with who you really are.

Take a deep breath. It’s going to be ok.

Because the truth is? You–yes, you–are and incredible work of art. And you are doing just fine.
