I Didn’t Know I Was Lost

I didn’t know I was looking for myself.

But by golly I was out chasing down life

And ran smack dab in to me

Finding out

All about me.

Me and Me

It’s amazing what I didn’t know about me.

Until I discovered it.

  1. Hahaha! I would say, “Isn’t that the truth!” But it would be like a broken record. Haha! We are out looking for the “meaning to life” thinking we are so intelligent to be looking for something so admirable. HA! Guess what we find instead?

    There is so much about myself that I still don’t fully understand or know. Going through new experiences often shows us sides of ourselves that we didn’t know existed.

    • Yes. Just last week I looked at a friend of mine and said “you know what? I react emotionally, not intellectually. I do not process before I react”. This was in regards to “work”. It was something I had been struggling with to explain to myself, and I tripped right over it. I know certain things about myself but don’t always know how to apply them to other ‘parts’ of my life. Amazing what we learn and put together….

    Just when I feel I am trying to ‘get away’ from being me, I am me. This is a ‘twist’ on your thought, but I found this to be true over the Easter holiday. Smiles!

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ I am trying to embrace what it is I’m finding out about me. THAT is a process as well. It ain’t easy Robin! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Bumping in to that kind of familiar person to realize – oh – maybe that is exactly what and who I am. Well then, okay, let’s make this work. Many smiles for both of us!

    Oh no, not your too Colleen. I thought it was just me. I guess we all must be lost to a certain extent.

  6. Yep, sometimes that happens to me and I’m just like “ouch! watch where you’re going!!”

    And what was it that you discovered?

    whenever i read you, i must say it inspired me i don’t know why but i think life isn’t what you understand about yourself its about how you understand the others

    Those moments happen to me…as ever when least expected. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I find it interesting that the very simplest of understandings occur and I am gobsmacked as to why they didn’t occur to me before. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hence, the moments I run right in to myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Awesome post. I’m still discovering me everyday… Have fun.

    It keeps changing too, which makes it harder to find!

    I have a little saying reserved for myself when I run into myself…..uhduh, har, har. I think we sometimes try to make things hard when they are truly simple.

    What a joyful discovery, MBC!

  14. NotAPunkRocker says:

    Isn’t that the way it should go? That’s how you know you are on the right path?

  15. And if in your encounter with yourself you u realize you’re still smiling, that’s a great day!
