The Search

Every single day people are searching.

For your lost set of keys, the love of your life, that missing homework assignment, a reason to get up in the morning, a level 10 friend, for a purpose, and the list goes on.

What are you searching for today?

I woke up after a reckless night of no sleep with the thought of searching. What is this huge puzzle we are trying to solve? I don’t want my life to be a maze of confusion. I want my life to be a path of adventure.

I have decided to make some changes in my life so far as I reflect on the position I am in. The past has been and gone and it has brought me to this moment.

I started my journey to self love by writing so I hope this helps someone realize that step one of this gigantic mystery called life is reading something new, writing one more word down, making one more decision to move forward. It just takes one more.

Step One- When I wake up in the morning I want to avoid what the world is telling me for a moment and focus on my breathing. Yes, I’m going to start practicing meditation. Without breath, we wouldn’t exist so I do not want to take that for granted.

Now, I don’t see myself turning into a yogi in the middle of the night; however, in order for me to make a difference in the world, I need to make small differences in myself.

“You are going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.”

Life has a way of offering us moments and people when we least expect it, so let’s capture them while we can! Don’t go out searching for those key details in your life and placing them there without meaning. The best gifts are the surprises in life, aren’t they?

Step Two- I want to start listening to others. Searching within my own mind is exhausting and I often get lost. I am going to start listening to more podcasts and audio books. I think hearing other voices and thoughts will plant seeds in my life that I never knew existed.

Don’t spend today searching; just move forward with a heart of adventure and a lifetime of ambition because that love will find you if you show yourself love first. Those missing keys will show up even if you have found a new way to move forward. You are never lost, just paused, so breathe.
