There are moments in our lives where we feel utterly and entirely lost. There are no clear directions or paths for us to take, just one big ball of confusion without an instruction manual or a tutorial as to how to “live.”
This is more than okay, for we all become lost in life every now and then. Sometimes it’s better to surrender yourself to the universe and let the world show you your next adventure.
The next time you feel like you’re completely lost, remembering these quotes could save you a lot of troubles!
1. “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.”
If you are constantly looking back on the past, then you can never truly live in the present. You must keep moving forward in your life no matter how lost you feel. Now’s the time for you to go out there and discover new and amazing things you could be enjoying!
2. “Sometimes you need to talk to a three-year-old just so you can understand life again.”
This means that sometimes adults too often let the serious things in life suck all the joy and fun away from their lives. Sometimes we need to have a quick chat with the younger side of ourselves to revisit what it means to live again. Let yourself be a kid every now and then, not everything needs to be so critical all of the time.
3. “Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be.”
This is pretty self-explanatory. However, there are times where the answer is not always clear, reminding us of who we are, what we love doing, and where we would rather be right now. Sometimes the answer for a new direction or path is usually the obvious one right in front of us.
4. “If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door.”
If your calling isn’t exactly calling back to you, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Perhaps it was something that you really wanted to try but didn’t work out. That’s alright, there are bound to be other doors that you can open, that are made to be opened specifically by you. Never stop finding new opportunities to test yourself!
5. “If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”
If you are not satisfied with where you are living, then be that change you so desire. Find the place that is just right for you, and stop at nothing to achieve those dreams and goals. If there is nothing holding you back and you have the means to go and fight for what you want most, do it. Follow your gut instincts!
6. “Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.”
One of the most important lessons in life that we must learn is how to accept the good times, along with the bad times, in our lives. Sometimes, the bad things that happened to us, happened for a reason, giving us a new path to go on for newer and better things. It may be hard, but find that new direction to embark on, take it, and never stop moving forward.
7. “Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.”
Remember that not everything is permanent. Being temporary can actually be a very beautiful thing. There is always another path that can lead you to something much better or something that you’ve never experienced before. Be open to the limitless possibilities of the world around you!
It’s okay to feel lost, just remember that you have more than one path that lies ahead of you! The world will always give you the chance to try something new!
