We all feel lost sometimes and how do we get back on track when we feel like we don’t even know where to start. As nightbirde said it’s okay to be lost sometimes. In this episode we’ll talk about how can we stay grounded even if we’re lost and how to find our way back to who we are and our goals. 

 

 

 

Flow:

 

Why do we feel lost sometimes? 

 

·    One of the reasons we feel lost in life is that growing up we’re so used to having things set up for us. We went through school with people telling us what to learn, who to be and what to do. 

·    Now when finish school and we’re left with who we are, do we really know “Ourselves”. Are we equipped to know what we want to be and who we choose to be. 

·    It’s a constant struggle to shred off the expectations of people around us of who we are and who we’re supposed to be in their eyes. But what really matters is that who are you to yourself? It’s you who’ll live your life not them so these are the questions you have to ask yourself. 

 

 

Being lost is a part of life  

 

 

·    With a chapter closing in our lives, doing  and experiencing new things we often really don’t get to know where to pick it up and go from there. Just like every new endeavor we go through we’ll have to adjust and assess the situations we’re in.

·    We have to accept that we won’t always know what’s going on and sometimes all we could do is have faith in the things we’re doing and maybe someday it will all make sense.

·    Sadly there isn’t a curriculum and a blueprint that we could follow for our lives, because whatever we goal and set it to be it’s not always going to go the way we expect and want it to be. The unpredictability of life is too great for us to have a straight path to our goals.

 

 

How can we find our way back?  

 

·    In times that we feel lost, we feel like we don’t even know where to begin. It feels like the world isn’t making enough sense for us to understand why we are in this certain situation. It also makes us feel anxious of where we’re headed because we’re not entirely sure of what is to become of us. 

·    We question if we’re on the right path, are we going to make it? Will everything fall and crumble beneath our feet. How do we survive from this? These questions will arise but you have to hang on and have faith. 

·    When we feel lost the best thing to do is take a step back, realign and recenter your life. You have to go back to who you are. That’s why it’s important to know the “self” so that you can reassess your life and the paths your taking to the bigger picture and also to the values that you deem important in your life. 

·    If you don’t know who you are yet you have to ask yourself the hard questions and know the ways you want to live your life for you. 

 

Focus on what you can control

 

·    Now that we’re on the same page and understand how we could work on the things we need to do while we’re lost. Work on the things you can control, build habits, create your lifestyle because the things you do and value will transcend on how you live your life.
