For it’s only when you’re lost, that you can be found.
And I don’t mean someone else finds you….but rather YOU find you….you reignite your internal flame, you uncover your inner passions, your drive, your calling, your true self.
For most of us, this rediscovery comes during or after a period of feeling adrift, lost, with a waning appetite for life, or perhaps as a result of a tragedy or health crisis. And for a lot of us, a major episode of this happens in our mid-30’s to mid-40’s. But this isn’t typically a once-in-a-lifetime experience — we can get lost many times in our lives, and to varying degrees.
So if things seem confusing and murky, recognize that THAT’S the wrapping paper on the gift — look deeper inside yourself to find the real gem of the situation: a greater understanding and inner knowing, a stronger sense of personal power and greatness, a fuller embodiment of self….
“The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the strength within you that survives all the hurt.” (Unknown) It is when you have hit the wall and don’t know where to turn — THAT is the point in your life where you get lost in order to find yourself.
You begin to realize that the hurt will pass and you will be stronger as a result of having experienced the downs of life. For it is not the ups of life that build our character (are you surprised?).
So when you feel lost, hazy, muddled, and weather-beaten, remember to delve further within yourself. You will find that your truest self, your internal GPS, has not been tarnished — on the contrary, it is shining brighter and more strongly than ever!
As James Allen pointed out, “Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself.”
Enjoy the process of peeling back the layers as you go through life — becoming more aware and conscious as you grow, more in touch with WHO you really are inside, more able to authentically express yourself in the world, and more accepting of your inner greatness.
So scram! Amscray! Get lost! And go find yourself….
Then come back and tell us about your journey….we’re excited to hear.
