Life doesn’t always go smoothly as you expect. There are some moments when you feel lost and struggling about where we are and what we want to achieve in life.
Happiness is something that all people on earth aim to achieve; however, it is still somehow ambiguous. Happiness is like math that we all want to figure out. We usually think that we might be happy when we have a car, a house, get a dream job, or even become similar to the other person.
However, even when you become very similar to the other person, you get a car, have a lovely house, a beautiful wife, or a rich husband, you might still find that you are not happy. We are just delighted in a short moment once you achieve what you ever wished for.
In other words, it’s likely that both poor and rich humans suffer from misery with lots of thinking and feeling lost sometimes.
On the other hand, there are moments when you feel lost because of losing your loved one when you are rejected by someone you think is the right person for you. Thus you feel confused about who will be the right one if he/she is not the one and you feel lost again.
Given all the reasons above, happiness is more likely an act toward a process. And feeling lost is a kind of a motive toward the changes in that process. The moment you feel lost might be the very time you need to let go what is not important, realize what matters to you the most, and eventually adjust what needs to be done from that moment on.
This writing will provide you 11 quotes that we hope to boost you up when you feel lost.
1. Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.
Life is not always as you wish for. The present situation might be like you have no excellent job or no real love or stuck in a complicated trouble in your relationship.
If it is not the best situation that makes you feel bored or upset, it could be a signal that you need to change and adjust your action. That quote reminds us to refresh our minds, think more clearly and adjust your effort to be suitable with reality. That said, the best is yet to come, and you might have learned something about the present situation.
2. Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best thing that will ever happen to us.
Again, there are sometimes bad things that happen in our lives that we never expect. Such things make us feel bad, think negatively about life, cause us to feel bored, blame ourselves, and have no motivation to strive toward. It can prevent you from feeling peaceful that you are doing.
However, it’s not always pessimistic that bad things happen. Bad things could signal that you are not doing something on the right track when you look at the bright side of it. At the same time, you may need to think differently about the path you should go.
3. If you don’t like where you are, move, you are not a tree.
Trees have roots that are stuck on land, but the hands of people only move them. Trees can not move by themself. Differently, this quote reminds us that humans are unique creatures that have intelligence, and they can move by their foot.
It means that if you don’t like the place, you are in right now, why not move by your own foot and your motivation to change.
4. You can’t start the next chapter if you keep rereading the last.
A book or novel has many continuous chapters. You have to finish one chapter to continue reading the next chapter. But if you forget how the previous chapter was going, you need to reread the previous chapter’s last words.
Likewise, the metaphor means to keep reviewing what happened that leads you to the present situation and move on to the next chapter with brighter days ahead.
5. If it doesn’t open, it’s not your door
The metaphor about the entry implies that you are trying to open a door which is not meant for you. The door analogy is something telling you that challenges might sometimes happen in your life. When you are stuck in the problems that you find painfully obviously challenging to go through, maybe it’s time to let go or surpass it in your way. Dont waste too much time or energy on it when you feel exhausted.
6. Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be
When you get troubles at work or a relationship, it isn’t easy to see how to solve it in a while. Changing the surrounding area may be a choice. You can have some air outdoors, enjoy the beauty of nature and breathe so slowly you can feel precisely about what you want to. By doing so, you can gradually understand your needs and have plans to realign your action toward your target.
7. Sometimes you need to talk to a three-year-old just that you can understand life again.
Every aspect of life is so new to a three-year-old kid. They are always full of energy, like to explore everything on earth. They keep questioning what happens, why it happens, and they are still playful in discovering things.
Meanwhile, adults are more likely to look at what they have already known in the trail they have experienced. Therefore, they are reluctant and lack interests in discovering things because they assume that they know the results, and it would happen as they think the results should be.
8. Listen, and silent are spelled with the same letters. think about it
A person’s talks mean he/she wants somebody to listen. However, there are dialogues that everyone wants to talk to, and no one is a listener, making the two-way conversation meaningless.
Listening is a skill, and to be a good listener; you have to be silent to listen to someone’s talk.
9. Sometimes, you have to stop thinking so much and just go where your heart takes you
Sometimes when you think a lot about the problem, your mind produces many idle thoughts that might not help solve the issues or offer a solution. Even worse, idle thoughts might cause you to do not a beneficial act toward your expectations.
Thus, stop thinking and do things that you love and go to where your heart takes you. That’s the best activity that you can do to realign your action meanwhile.
10. You don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward
Sometimes there are too many problems in life that you need to struggle to figure out. But not all problems can be solved at a time. And you are not alone that too many problems exist in your life. Your friends, your beloved ones, and other people in the world are getting stuck in the same or different problems at different point of their time. Thus, life still goes on, they all move forward whatever happens. Time is flying; you still have to move on even when you don’t know what will happen next.
Thus, don’t make it too complicated in thinking and trying to have it all figured out. Just move forward with an active mind and open hearts.
11. Never stop believing because miracles happen every day
Miracles are something extraordinary, unexpectedly beautiful that you never expect. While people continue thinking about what to do with their lives, they seem to forget that the little beautiful things can happen somewhere in the hustle and bustle of life.
As a law of attraction, good things attract good things. This positive thinking will attract a reason for attracting new good things. Life could be a miracle if you strive towards your right aim and utilize your capability to use it to the fullest. And there is always something beautiful that can happen in your life if you believe in miracles.
