The Sunday Topic:
I wanted to start a series that I’m going to be running for the whole year one that’s going to inspire people, make people happy and make them realise how beautiful life actually is!! So each Sunday I’m going to be posting a lifestyle post about something. This could be anything from good topics to dark topics that no one ever really talks about. By doing this I hope to open peoples eyes about how beautiful the world is but also how dark and lonely it can be.
Do you ever feel like even though you have a great life, amazing friends and a beautiful family there’s still this sense of being lost. Lost like you don’t know whether you’re coming or going? You feel like you’re on the train of life and if you looked at the past few weeks you’ve being doing pretty much the same each week. Whether it be going to work or school then coming home and doing homework or watching TV and then not really doing much on the weekend.
How I feel:
Even though my life’s great at the moment I’m finding Sixth form life much easier than last year, I’m closer than ever with my best friends, my family are great and I’m enjoying my everyday life. I feel rather lost I know roughly what I want to do in the future and how to get there.
It’s like I’ve got this empty part inside of me I see how great people’s lives are on TV an in Movies although I know they’re made up and might not be as great as they seem. I always find that I want that type of life where I have more freedom a big group of friends, a nice car, I’m stable when it comes to finances and maybe even a boyfriend??
I know for a fact that that’s unrealistic at the moment because I’m 17, I have no job and I can’t drive which pretty much limits me to quite a lot especially when it comes to the real world. However I just feel like I could do so much more with my life yet I don’t know how. It’s great spending time with your friends etc.. but I want a real adventure one where the unknown is exciting.
I guess the good thing about feeling lost is that your mind is open to almost any opportunity that comes to you. This is great because so many people limit themselves to what they can achieve or try. I know for a fact I’ve said No to so many great opportunities simply because I felt out of my comfort zone or I was just being really lazy.
Books are a great way for you to not feel that lost feeling for a little while. I love finding a really good book to read because it would probably only take me about 4 hours to complete it. I love feeling like I’m actually in the book because when I read a book I imagine how it would actually be like in real life.
Feeling lost can also cause you to feel depressed or sad. I sometimes feel like this especially when I’m having a bad day I often say to myself “what if”. But don’t let this get you down if you need someone to talk to I’m here I absolutely love interacting with you guys. Feeling lost can also mean that you want to spend a lot of time to yourself which is what I’ve been doing for the last few months. This is kind of bad because you will just knock yourself down and feel lonely, sad and lost most of the time.
So this year I’m defiantly going to push myself to do more things because I can’t sit at home all the time which I do quite a lot. Even though I enjoy it it’s not a good thing to do because you become unsociable and very lazy!! I would love to try new things this year and I’d also love to bake some more because I love baking. I think that in time this whole lost feeling that I have will disappear as new doors open for me and I get more freedom.
