I used to write little notes to myself, little pick me ups to my future self, my hopes and dreams for my future self. In them I would almost always say,” I hope you stay a little lost.” I would write this to remind myself to always keep looking forward, to always be open to a new path, a new view, to never forget the beauty of a detour. While I still believe in that, believe in remaining a little lost, I also now have a new message,” I hope you stay a little found.” Because while there is beauty in being lost, there is also beauty in finding yourself. Finding out who you are and who you want to be , and accepting that is truly beautiful.
I have always been a little lost. I have probably wallowed in my lost state. Recently I have begun to find myself , little by little. I have come to accept myself. Instead of making me complacent like I feared it has done the opposite. Now I want to strive harder, continue to find myself, continue to find me, and not lose myself along the way.
