Let’s talk about how to embrace feeling lost by redirecting your thoughts!
Recently I’ve been feeling lost – and it’s not the greatest feeling. Usually, I’m on deadline and respond to all emails by the end of a workday. Up until June, I felt good about where I was at in life and where I wanted to go. But once summer hit, I began to worry about creating new adventures and where those adventures would take me.
Initially, I wanted to push away the feeling of being lost. As someone who considers themselves Type-A I started sorting out my thoughts by printing spreadsheets, listening to podcasts, and watching Skillshares. I put all my hope into my efforts igniting a new direction for me – but nothing did. It isn’t until I decided to sit with and embrace the lost feeling that I naturally found redirection and a newfound purpose.
Now, I’m sharing my journey of self-discovery with you:
Accepting The ‘Lost’ Feeling
Before you can redirect yourself – you need to check yourself. At the beginning of June, my overwhelming work deadlines and lack of organization was triggering anxiety. At first, I thought it was just me adjusting to the move. I began telling myself that I was being lazy and inefficient. But as the weeks went on I was getting more and more frustrated with myself. That is, until last week -Friday to be exact – when I woke up and had an epiphany. I was simply unsure of the next steps I wanted to take in life and was feeling lost for the first time ever. So, I took a deep breath and embraced the feeling.
