Feeling lost, angry, dejected…in my dreams at least which explains my deer in the headlights approach to life as of late. I fail to understand what got me since I was only following the path that was laid out for me, but somehow I ended up in a foreign place and I don’t know what to do next…so I’m simply stalled. I can’t call for help because I don’t want anyone to know that I appear to have made a wrong turn so I’ll keep trying to figure out my next move. I know for certain that this place, space is unfamiliar and I feel unsafe, exposed. I really wish I could find my way home
It is very easy to define oneself by achievements and status symbols; but at the end of the day , it’s important to remember that we are more than that.
People who you meet and interact with will remember how you made them feel before they remember your occupation or the accolades you have achieve
There are many people who have accomplished a great deal and on paper they are fabulous and yet they feel empty
Personally I have not accomplished much but those things that I have achieved fail to define me
I am grateful for the degrees I possess and the papers I’ve written, etc
but I am most happy about the lives I’ve touched
the people I’ve made smile and those individuals I have encouraged to think differently about various topics.
It is very easy for me to compare my lack of accomplishments with others or to just compare my idea of where I believe I should be with my peers but that doesn’t begin to tell the story of me
I am more than what a piece of paper can display, we all are more than the mere descriptions of ourselves.
