These past few months have been some of the most trying of my life (and I have been through some tough shit). Today (yes, at precisely the time of this writing) I am starting to feel that foundation and stability I was once missing.
Life is complicated sometimes and we all need time to find a sense of direction. I have always dealt with my issues internally, with a lot to thought, writing (poetry) and contemplation about life. However, I have realized through these past few months what I have missed the most: friends and family.
As most of you know, I currently live in South Korea, so my closest friends and family live half-way across the world. Over these past few weeks, however, I have been able to meet some amazing people. People whom I hope become long time friends.
In addition to finding meaningful relationships, I have struggled with finding direction of exactly which way I want to take my life (during this crossroad). Filling my time with reading of books, watching TED Talks and studying languages has helped me discover that I need not go in one direction to feel accomplished in life. I need only to keep filling my life with things which enrich my inner self (and outer self) overall.
Discovering this has really had an impact on myself and those around me.
If you find yourself going through a difficult time, please know a moment will come of which you find your direction. Even if that means you find yourself walking in multiple directions at once.
