No worries! It’s totally fine. It’s hard not to sometimes! I feel lost most of the time to be honest. There are so many choices in life, and how do we know, which choice is the right one? Well, sorry to break it to you. We don’t. We just need to follow our gut.
We are from a very young age thrown into taking a lot of decisions, that will somehow take our life in one or another direction. It’s important though to remember that it’s never too late to change that direction. If you don’t end up happy where you are then try something else. It’s okay, and that’s how we evolve as human beings. We learn from our mistakes. Trying different things throughout life is healthy.
Most people at my age are quite comfortable, and heading towards what I call a “ grown up life”. They have decent careers ahead of them, getting engaged and having babies, and I’m still trying to figure out what country I want to visit next time.
I’m pretty sure most of my friends think that I am a lost soul living in a fairy tale world. Modern life Peter Pan who never want to grow up. I’ve had my share of people telling me that I am missing direction in my life and that I am running away. Well, maybe I am, but be different if you want. Don’t necessarily do what everybody else is doing, or what people expect of you. That might not be the right thing for you to do, as it is for them. I personally don’t believe I am missing direction in my life, but I have dreams, and I am still trying to figure out how to achieve them.
What I love about traveling is that it’s a place to meet other clueless people. When you are out in the world you realize that you are not the only one feeling lost or different. We are many out there! So stop worrying too much. Let go of your need to know. Don’t worry about your future. Everything you need is right here and right now. You only live once, so do what you love and be happy!
