Being Lost Isn’t a Bad Thing

We talk about being lost like it’s a bad thing… and I know it can feel that way, because it used to feel that way to me too.

It can feel like you’re turned upside down inside your life. Like nothing makes sense and you have no idea where to go or what to do next. Like everything that kept you grounded has fallen away, and there’s nothing to keep you rooted in yourself, your life, your work.

But sometimes being lost is everything perfect and necessary. Because in the midst of feeling turned around you’re exactly where you need to be… feeling confused in exactly the ways you need to feel confused… uncertain about everything in exactly the ways you need to feel uncertain.

Sometimes we have to be willing to let go of everything we’ve built and grown comfortable with to create the space for a deeper level of growth and clarity. To invite in the kind of possibility that doesn’t exist within the comfortable containers we create for ourselves. Sometimes we have to sit directionless inside that space long enough for a path we never considered to become visible.

I’ve been “lost” many times in my life… and the most recent time this past winter and spring was the most motionless and productive period of my life. It changed everything. It allowed for the deepest healing to take place. It caused everything that was no longer aligned to fall away. And it brought me home to myself in ways I’d forgotten were even possible.

As Rumi writes in one of my favorite quotes, “Do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”

Trust and faith.

You’re exactly where you need to be.
Even when it doesn’t feel that way.
Especially when it’s hard.
