If you’re feeling lost, you’re not alone. Through most of my twenties I felt lost, misunderstood and unfulfilled. I had a busy life but felt something missing. I was completely unfulfilled at my job and wondered if there was more to life. I felt lost.
Stuck going through the motions
Life was so busy, never slowing down for anything. I constantly had a full schedule between work and home life. I found myself getting promoted at work pretty quickly because I was always chasing the next best thing.
For awhile, I thought this was my calling – to climb the ranks like everyone else around me was. Every time I got a new job and made more money, more congratulations came along.
I was so congratulated I thought I was doing the right thing.
Until it led me to feeling stuck. I was stuck in my job and in my head. I was going through the motions on autopilot.
Unrest, confusion and feeling lost
Eventually, I became restless, confused and so lost. I was keeping myself busy but felt anxiety grow within. I had these internal whispers pulling at me. Whispers that told me there must be more to life.
With each passing day I questioned what existed beyond what I knew. I found myself researching for hours, days, weeks, months and years. Yes, years.
I was looking externally for all the answers. I wanted someone to “solve” me. It was so frustrating and resulted in many tireless hours on the internet.
Eventually, I figured out it was the work I was doing that led to feeling unfulfilled and lost. I love to work so investing my time into something that isn’t my calling can only distract for so long.
To the girl who feels lost
Ultimately, over a lot of soul searching, coaching and digging deep within, I realized I was made for helping other women find themselves and live out of who they were made to be.
I don’t want you to feel stuck.
If you’re feeling lost, I see you. I hear you. I feel for you. This is only a season in your life, it’s not permanent.
You’ve already made the first step in breaking free to who you were made to become by acknowledging you’re lost.
It can be a lonely place but I’m here for you. Listen to your whispers inside. Don’t push them down for years like I did. Don’t live a life you were told to because it’s what someone else wants from you. People pleasing is passive.
You were made for more and you CAN DO MORE. You WILL DO MORE.
Feeling lost? Try this
If you find yourself feeling lost try asking yourself these things to start:
- How do I want to feel at the end of every day?
- Is this a ‘should,’ ‘need’ or ‘want’? Ditch the should’s!!!!
- What gives me energy?
- What do I enjoy doing most when helping others?
Your answers to these questions should pull out a theme or two. Your answers are deep within.
If you’re feeling lost, I’m here for you. If you need some help, let’s chat. I don’t want you to suffer through it for years like I did. It’s never too late to start.
