Being at lost at sea is an unfortunate mistake. Ignoring the lighthouse guiding you to shore is a choice.
Have you ever felt lost, as if you were walking through a maze? Or perhaps as if you’re wandering through a fog on a dark night? One of the most difficult aspects of life for many people is either not knowing where they want to go, or not being able to find a map on how to get there once they figure that out. One of the things that attracts so many people to life coaching services is that wandering alone isn’t just incredibly frustrating, but can also be deeply frightening. Knowing you’re lost can only do so much; how do you find your way? Some people have been lost for so long that they may be afraid to even come ashore, because they’re no longer accustomed to having their feet on the ground. One of the many complexities of the human mind is that it is designed to adapt to almost any situation, even if that situation breeds constant discontent, frustration, anger, or loneliness. We can become so attached to feeling this way on a regular basis that, after a while, we don’t even try to not feel that way anymore. Being lost at sea becomes the new normal, and there are so many other boats, drifting around us that the company of similarly lost people helps a feel a bit less lost, at least for awhile. But who would you be if you had a map? Where would you go if you knew exactly where you were going? What could you become if you were only courageous enough to come ashore?
