We’ve been brainwashed into thinking we’re supposed to know where we’re going. To have a plan. To be taking consistent steps, even if they’re baby steps, to get closer to our goal of doing something epic.
Detours not allowed.
Keep moving forward.
I’ve said it myself…thru hikers are like sharks. Keep swimming or die. Such is real life, too
Getting lost isn’t supposed to be part of the program.
But I think we should allow abundant time for getting lost and going off trail.
I’ve found that getting lost is a great way to find parts of myself I didn’t know were missing.
Getting lost allows for:
- Learning to rely on your inner compass.
- Opening to the discoveries that await us when we’re in unknown territory and vulnerable.
- A way to practice asking for help.
- An opportunity to accept that we on’t have all the answers.
- An invitation to be open to receive.
- A chance to see through new eyes, to incite creativity.
