Found, not lost

15:46

Getting lost is okay. It is a common part of life, sometimes an opportunity for introspection and growth. Everyone gets lost. It only becomes an issue when it is long lasting and goes beyond mere geography. It becomes a problem when it is deep, looming and internal.

Not all those who wander are lost


I was lost for as long as I can remember. I had goals, sure, but nothing I felt truly passionate about. For me, most of the time, it wasn't looming, it was just always there. Not a presence, but an absence of something. Something important.

I wasn't the person I wanted to be, but I lived with that, mostly in peace. I didn't have the vaguest idea of what sort of a person I did want to be.

I would discover more and more things I didn't want, but while that isn't completely useless, the process of elimination is a bad way to approach a question like this. There are simply too many variables and unknowns.

There were many things contributing to a clear picture finally emerging. Perhaps in another post. But here I am, with an idea coming into focus. An idea of who I am, who I want to be, what I want to do and achieve. What I want my life to be like.

I wrote a mission statement, so I don't lose this newly found focus.
