Week 26

"It is good to feel lost... because it proves you have a navigational sense of where "Home" is. You know that a place that feels like being found exists. And maybe your current location isn't that place, but Hallelujah, that unsettled, uneasy feeling of lost-ness just brought you closer to it." - Erika Harris

OK - so do you ever have that feeling where you know something great is about to happen if you can only just reach that thing that is barely out of your grasp which you can't identify? Well, I have that feeling often these days ... I was chatting with a friend of mine about it & he said that means I'm growing, learning & stretching. Which is good. Because I don't want to be complacent & I don't want to stop growing. But I'm also the sort that wants to know what that thing is which I can't identify that I'm trying to grab onto... One of the things I guess is in my "room for growth" category.

So that feeling of 'lost-ness'... uncertainty... is it good? Maybe. If we really examine it & can come to terms with the space. If there is something definitely that continues in uncertainty then I'm afraid that maybe it's not such a good space to be in. Then I think you need to put into action what you've learned through the growing & actually do something about it one way or another... States of uncertainty aren't negative, but I do believe they should be short lived.

"People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates." - Thomas Szasz

Growth can come from the uncertainty. From the feeling of 'lost-ness'. You can find your way to a better place through those unsettling moments. I'm going to use mine to hone in on the life I want to create. The self I want to create. Maybe those moments are simply blank canvases stretched out in front of me waiting for me to create who I am. So that's how I'll start using the 'lost-ness'.
