Taking Comfort in Being Lost

24 Mar 2016

I've felt a bit lost since arriving in Vietnam. Afterall, I have been dreaming of this moment for so long, that I got off the plane with many high expectations of what this journey would feel like.


I think I expected to feel a confirmation that this is where I'm meant to live. I think I expected to immediately feel at home. And I certainly expected to trapse confidently around this country.


So, when those feelings haven't quite come, I find myself anxiously questioning my decision to make such a grand leap to move to the other side of the planet.


But I read two quotes that are making me take another look at this anxiety I feel. Both of which I came across while reading Seth Godin's What To Do When It's Your Turn:

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.

- Søren Kierkegaard

And it hit me: Of course, I am feeling unsure in my footing.


I just dared to reach for one of my biggest dreams, for crying out loud.



Instead of only seeing the insecurity of a dream, why not look at wavering as a sign you're doing something so wonderfully outside your comfort zone that you are an explorer.

"The explorer is the person who is lost." 

- Tim Cahill

What is worth losing your footing for a moment so as to not lose yourself? What project are you exploring enough to feel confidently lost? Why not take comfort from being lost?
