Why It’s OK to be lost


2014 is going to be my year.

I can’t put my finger on it, but I feel that 2014 is going to be full of opportunities, new experiences, and happiness. It might not be easy. It will definitely be a process. There will be challenges, but it’s all part of life.

There has been a lot of hullabaloo on the Internet lately regarding people’s choices. To be single, to be married, etc. Various opinions on the topic has garnered hate from both directions. It seems to have turned into somewhat of a single vs. married debate.

But I’m not writing to stand up for either side as right or wrong. Because the fact is, everyone is different. And different people are at different places in life. What may be the right step for one person, could be very wrong for another. And there is more than one facet to life than the category of romantic relationships. We have many choices in life, many areas to explore. Someone who is married may still struggle with career choices. My point is, it’s not all black and white, and it should not be portrayed as such.

That said, if you don’t know what you want in life yet, that’s OK. Whether or not that concerns a relationship, your career, or your future in general. I would say that one of the main purposes of life is the journey. And sometimes the best experiences take place and stories are formed when you get lost along the way.

You have the opportunity to make 2014 the best year of your life. Married or single, here are just a few things you could do:

1. Find something you love.

2. Try new things. See a movie you wouldn’t normally see. Try some cuisine that you’ve never had before.

3. Tell the people in your life you love them.

4. Get lost in one, or several good books.

5. Set a goal, like running a race, and make it happen.

The moral of the story is to focus on yourself. Don’t compare yourself to what someone else is doing. Focus on your life, your needs/wants, your journey. It’s the only way to be secure in your own decisions.
