“Life is tough. Life is tougher if you’re stupid”.
The quote that I chose for this post actually has nothing to do with the topic itself, but I enjoy it, so I’m using it. I got this particular quote from the Boston Globe’s Reflection for the Day from July 2012. I have a collection of my favorites that I’ve cut out and keep to look at every once and a while. If you are a fan of quotes, and receive the Globe, I suggest you take a look, they are the G section of the paper. If not, they are also posted online and you can google it. That’s my little sub topic for tonight.
Tonight’s topic is being lost, feeling lost, losing something, and everything in between. Probably the broadest topic I’ll ever write about.
Being lost. This phrase, at least to me can mean a few different things. The first thing that comes to mind is physically being lost. Driving and being lost, which I love. There’s nothing better than getting in your car and driving, seeing where the road takes you. While this state can free your mind, easy your thoughts, and give you a chance to reflect on all things life, the mental state of being lost is completely different.
Feeling lost. We’ve all been there a time or two when you have no idea what’s going on, what’s being said, how to react, etc. You’re just lost. A state of confusion, feeling stuck and not knowing where to go next. Left, right or straight. When you simply have to trust yourself that you’re doing the right thing, that you will no longer be lost.
Losing something. There is simply too much to say about this topic, and once again, we’ve all been there a few times. When you misplace something, anything to a note you wanted to keep, to $5, it’s happened… and if it hasn’t, you’re lying. The best and worst situation is when you lose something, search everywhere for it, and then when you least expect it, you suddenly find it. Sure, you’re happy you found it, but you can’t help but think why you didn’t look there sooner. Isn’t that the way these things always go?
The answer is yes.
