Finding yourself and getting lost sounds like quite the contradiction. The reality is that sometimes to find yourself, you have to get lost. By getting lost I mean letting yourself live in the moment a little more. With everyone’s hectic lifestyles these days we can often forget that we have to make time that is all about us. Getting lost also means getting out of your daily routine and shaking up your life by doing something outrageous or spontaneous. Do something that gets you out of your everyday enviroment. I always recommend travel, but even if it’s a simple daily or weekly action that can work too.
When we were children, the world was all about finding ourselves. What did we want to be when we grew up? What clubs/groups would open up more opportunities? Once we get older, we get caught into more of the day to day and don’t spend nearly as much time discovering and implementing what truly makes us happy. Although we can’t walk away from our responsibilities, it is important to find the time time to discover what really matters to you.
Even if you only have a little time each week to discovering yourself you need to do it. Think about something you used to love that you just don’t seem to have time for anymore and spend a little time doing it. This brings back the memory of what passion for something feels like. Passion is the single biggest factor between a life of happiness and success and a life of mediocrity.
Lose yourself for a while and see how quick you find your true self again. Not your Mom or Dad self or your work self but your real personal self. Finding that person again will not only bring more happiness but also more success to your life.
What are some things that YOU'VE done to get lost and find yourself? Please feel free to share your experiences and discoveries.
