When was the last time you were lost while driving? And I don’t mean you missed a turn, I mean really and truly didn’t know where you were or which direction to go.
If you own a smartphone then the likelihood that you’ve had to think about directions is probably slim to none. You just enter your destination and off you go on what you believe to be the most efficient route. Dull, boring and predictable.
The problem with having so many answers at your fingertips is that you begin to believe that there should be instructions or directions for everything in life, but there isn’t. Sometimes you will just be lost and that’s okay because that’s what life is about.
There’s actually an element to being lost that’s often overlooked and that is a sense of adventure. It’s that feeling you get when you don’t know what’s going to happen next. It’s the feeling that pushed humans for centuries to explore what might be around the next unfamiliar corner.
The next time you’re feeling a little lost in life recognize that everyone feels the same way at times and how dull, boring and predictable life would be if it came with a GPS.
