Lost & Found

img_5357It is in the quiet hours I spend alone that feelings of bleak despair takes me captive. So often I find that we surround ourselves with people, activities noise because when you strip it all away we have to face ourselves. It is a scary thing –

Being alone.

The car is too quiet, the room too barren, life too intimidating without the back up singers that build us up and protect us.

But that is the problem, you see. It is easy to find yourself among distractions. Mostly because you are not actually finding yourself.

Let yourself be alone. Let the background blur so that you yourself may come into focus. And when that sense of loss finds you remember that in order to find ourselves we must first lose ourselves.

It’ll be okay.
