A Reminder For The Lost Girl

righton

Whether you’ve just landed your dream job, or have finally written up that five year plan of yours- there was once a time where things didn’t all fit together the way you wanted them to. If you feel like you’re lost and constantly questioning the direction of your life or who you are as a person, this is for you. 

Take Your Time

There’s no deadline set for when you have to sort your life out.  When you feel lost and unsure of where you want to be or of who you are, that’s simply a sign from the universe that you need to take the time to make some changes to your life. These changes won’t happen in a day as much as you might want them to. Breathe, relax, and take your time.

We All Get Lost Sometimes

You’re not the only person to ever question where you are, or where you should be in life. I have discovered myself lost many times throughout my life, and have often found that those were the most transforming and defining moments I have experienced. Many times, it can be easy to lose yourself in someone else or a relationship you’ve poured yourself into. You may feel completely lost without that person, but it’s important to embrace the feeling of being lost, for it means change is on its way.

Welcome Change

Often, when you find yourself feeling uncertain, full of doubt and lost, it means that you are in need of change in your life. Change can be a scary thing. It means stepping away from what you’re comfortable with, and jumping blindly into the unknown. Although there’s no way of knowing whether the outcome will be positive, when you’re feeling stagnant and unsure embracing new aspects of life and changing your routine can be just what you need to feel motivated again.

Do Things For Yourself

It’s not selfish to put yourself first in your times of need. Feeling lost can be discouraging, especially when it seems that everyone around you has their lives together. Do things that make you happy. Rekindle old hobbies you once loved, try new things, spend time in the outdoors, and embrace each day. Slowly, you’ll start to find what you love and are passionate for just by experiencing with new things!

Don’t Worry About Social Media

It’s so easy to get caught up in scrolling through Instagram, looking in on how amazing some people’s lives seem to be, and comparing their happiest moments to your lowest. Most of the time, people will show you what they want you to see. Social media isn’t always an accurate depiction of how life is, so don’t let it get you down! A few days or weeks break from social media can be a great break and help you feel refreshed.

How have you dealt with feeling lost and unsure of yourself? I’d love to hear your experiences and stories!

  • This is such an inspirational post! I definitely have felt lost and unsure of my life more times than I could count. It’s important to just breath and understand that sometimes not everything plays out the way you want. What’s important is that you do what you love. x

      Thank you Leta! It’s a comforting feeling to know that so many people have felt this way too, and I agree about doing what you love! That’s what’s most important 🙂

  • I’m so in love with this post, so inspiring. I totally agree with all the points, but I found that when I fell like my life is getting out of hand rediscovering myself and doing things for me is the biggest help, as well as, as you said, stopping comparing myself to others.
    Great post!

      That’s great that you do that too Agnese, I’m so glad you could relate to this post the way you did 🙂

  • Great post. I think I best deal with feeling unsure if to submerse myself in something I love to do–being creative, either break out the sewing machine (total amateur here!!) or dive into some video editing, it always gets to me my happy place.

    • Diana Maria

      I do the exact same thing too! I try to get as creative as I can, that usually clears my mind up and gets me to where I want to be again!

  • Lydia May

    This has to be one of the best things I’ve ever read. It’s so incredibly helpful because every so often, we all need reminding of these things because we all go through it.

  • I find what I want to do with my life then it changes! I’m okay with that I guess… never know how things are going to do. Which can be exciting… sometimes not xx
