Words by Frou Williams.
“Do you ever feel that way?"
I search for the words. "Restless. As if you haven't really met yourself yet. As if you'd passed yourself once in the fog, and your heart leapt - 'Ah! There I Am! I've been missing that piece!' But it happens too fast, and then that part of you disappears into the fog again."
It's Sunday morning and as I sip my coffee, this week the universe has brought many thoughts and lessons around searching and feelings of being lost. It occurred to me, that perhaps we need not focus on what happens when we find that missing piece or indeed those pieces but instead focus on the journey or the process of the exploration in those pieces. Perhaps that's where the sweet spot lies, in getting lost. If you think about it, getting lost is just another way of saying 'I'm going exploring.” And wow, such beautiful paths can't be discovered without first getting lost.
For anyone who feels lost in their own way right now, as I too have felt lost, going back to who you are and what you love or moving forward to whoever you are meant to be or meant to love, is the purpose of being lost. There is no shame in being lost. In fact there is excitement and new layers as we shed our skin and we lose ourselves, so we can find another layer of who we truly are. And when we let go of the need to control the journey or even loosen the reins just a little to find out, it's then we're able to discover a new and better version of ourselves.
Sometimes we have to realise that things will never change if we don’t make a change in and for ourselves. To accept that change is here and it's an inevitable part of life. And sometimes, we have to lose ourselves in order to learn and to uncover the next chapter.
So what's your next chapter? 📝 💗
I would say I'm wishing you a peaceful Sunday but instead, I want you to get out there, get mucky, get lost and keep searching.
