There comes a time in our lives ( if not yet, then some other day) where we question the meaning of life or as we commonly know the feeling of where we are meant to be’. This – many theorists or academics refer to as a “spiritual journey” where one tries to map out the meaning of life. You know the common ” where am I headed”; “why am I alive”, deep soul searching stuff. It happens to the best of us and you are not alone. It’s not a ‘curse kind of feeling’ or a visit from the gods ( maybe), it’s merely just the YOU trying to fit yourself in the realm of reality. Often when we reach this part of our lives, where we go through a crisis of identity searching… ‘Who am I ‘ probably being the biggest question the self can ask THE self.
It is fair to say it is all about trusting the process.. Yes I’ll say that because it is the mantra I live by. But what if the process isn’t trust worthy or maybe the journey? Then who do you trust? God? Yourself? You can be the judge. If life was clear of all our destinations, would we keep on fighting our everyday battles? #FeesMustFall? or keeping up with the grind? Think about t. It is the very uncertainty of the way things are, that makes us hunger for greatness, success and conquer over our circumstances. Because we have the faith of “being sure of the things we hope for and certain of the things we cannot see” (Hebrews 11).
So this journey of where you will end isn’t all clear. But then why are you going anyways? Maybe it is because you are everyday halfway to your dreams hence why you gotta keep catching up. You have to move on, even when it is tough.
You have to try even if it seems impossible; You have to not take no for an answer, but keep yes a possibility, you have to take chances because that is what gambling with life is like; You have to trust yourself one more time; You have to give trust to a new beginning and trust that where you are in this moment is a chance….. A chance to begin again; a new chapter to discover; a new story to tell; new memories to be made. You have to give life a second chance, always – because everyday is a trial case. You have to trust that this journey and the way it is set with its bumps and cracks, potholes and meandering waves, is how it was set FOR YOU, to teach you something; to sharpen your curves for the straighter waterfalls and silent turbulents ahead ~ where you can finally rest in the depth of the calm ocean.
You have to indure the challenges, no matter how great or they are or high those mountains seem… You just have to take that first leap of faith into your destiny. It is already waiting for you, written in the stars with your name incrypted on it. Can you feel it? Then go get it!
