I just read a comment to me from a friend in response to a line in a poem I’d written and shared at http://Poetscorner.com. The line was: “I was lost”
He commented something to the effect of: “Were you? You seem to be so together.”
What a wonderful compliment! Here was my reply:
“Not only was I lost, I still often find myself lost. Lost in ego. In playing old negative messages in my head. In selfishness. Fear. Laziness. And more. I’m just far less lost than I used to be, especially when it comes to following my passion and living my dreams, and I stay lost for shorter periods. It is the reconnection to my heart and spirit that helps me to get reoriented. They are my compass and help me to have confidence and courage in this great adventure of life”.
I just felt I needed to set the record straight. I’m just a student of life, and often a slow learner at that. Fortunately life is a patient teacher, offering the same lesson to me over and over again, until I’m ready, willing, and able to learn it.
