Months ago in July I had created a post entitled "Why It's Okay to Feel Lost" with the help of my friend Van. Amidst the whirlwind that has been this semester, I almost entirely forgot about those thoughts until just now. It's strange the way time works. C.S. Lewis was not lying when he said, "It's funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different."
I shot these photos on a family visit in Virginia, during which most of the weekend was spent catching up on the past few months. Thinking back on our conversations about graduating, work, and travel, I am realizing that this feeling of being lost from the summer is now nothing but a distant memory.
Undoubtedly this year has been one of change, both in my favor and not. What I can say now is that I feel more sure of myself than at any other point in 2015. More than ever before I have spent the past few months focused on myself. My roommates often joke that I am married to my work, but for now I can't say I mind. This sense of individualism has fostered strength, both in myself and in my relationships with other people.
I am in no professional position to give life advice, but I can say that feeling lost is just more reason to get moving. Though time won't stop for anyone, you can control what you do with it. Hustle, even when you don't know what you want. I have no doubt you'll find it along the way.
PS. Stay tuned for this weekend's post to find out where I'm spending the upcoming holiday!
