There is wisdom in the African proverb, "To get lost is the best way to……find your true self."
Getting lost will allow you to:
…discover new paths you would have otherwise missed if you stayed in one direction.
…stumble onto new ideas you would never have imagined.
…reignite your creative spark.
…realize that you’re meant to do something else, something bigger, something more.
…recognize what you really love or hate.
…understand what you’re truly capable of.
…face your deepest fears and insecurities.
Sure, getting lost can leave you feeling scared, sad, frustrated, confused, angry, and a countless number of other emotions that will make you feel like you’ve somehow failed in your journey.
But it can also be an eye-opening experience.
After all, amazing adventures don’t come to life by fleeing from what makes you afraid and uncomfortable.
They come to life when you choose to stand up for yourself and what you believe in even when all seems lost. By doing so, you become the victor,
not the victim, of your own story."
Your journey will not only teach you much, but it will help you find your way ...and ultimately yourself!
