We might find ourselves lost and found on numerous occasions throughout the journey of life. It all depends, and there are times that I love to get lost, to escape it all. To breathe deeply and reconnect with what truly matters. Other times may feel more painful and we feel lost in the sense of not knowing where to turn next. Sometimes our inspiration seizes and we feel dull and uninspired. Life catches up and leaves us struggling and fighting. And then it passes and the light goes on once more. Life is pulsating through our veins and we feel found again. Life goes on….
A comment from my dear sister Colette made me pause the other day as she responded to a recent post. I was talking about a few latest obsessions and she mentioned that it appeared that I was finding my way back to myself again. It made me think at first, and soon I knew that she was right. I couldn’t really say anymore what my blog was about. It had become a mishmash of things, a journal to my daily life. From a place of inspiration, it had turned into a documentary. Some of the stats even dropped since I came to Germany, and although I care and hope to reach whoever needs to be reached, numbers and results are secondary, especially at this point when my priority needs to be elsewhere. Still it matters and Colette made me think with her words. I found that I had missed spreading that content that is mainly fueled by inspiration. I had missed myself, I was lost in a sense. And then, thank you to her comment the light went on and she brought to the forefront what I already felt. Life is full of bits and pieces, moments of joy and moments of pain, being lost so we can be found again. Everything plays a part and some are to be enjoyed more than others. It’s a natural process in learning who we are. Without darkness there is no light. And sometimes we find ourselves again within some of our latest obsessions. The passions for something or someone that makes our hearts beat faster. Those are the moments to cherish, the ones to hold on to, the ones where we are always truest to ourselves. How could we ever be truly lost in that?
The garden lights are ready 😉
