What now? Like me, I’m sure you’ve had an experience that has changed your life and has left you sitting somewhere asking yourself “what now?” Well I’m here to tell you that I don’t know. I have no clue what’s going to happen next. As people, we crave for the moment to know what’s going to happen next. Whether it’s the next episode of your favorite television show, or the aftermath you’re awaiting from a text you received saying “we need to talk”, we all get this urge of wanting to know what’s next.
Now the difficult part about these moments, is the fact that sometimes we don’t get the chance to know. When we don’t get the chance to know, it can leave us feeling confused. Right now, I am in a mental state where I feel confused. Things are going okay for me but I recently had an experience that has placed me in a state of confusion. After hours of just sitting and thinking, I’ve realized that it’s okay to be confused. “If you’re feeling confused, sometimes you just have to spend some time being confused.”
Sometimes you just need that period of time to just “BE”. In my opinion, being confused offers you an opportunity to be happy within the present. When you’re okay with being confused, you don’t have to dwell on the past or worry about what’s going to happen in the future.
Eliminating those two parts, places you in the right now with a chance to embrace where you are. With time, life will bring the answers and clarity that you need. If you believe things will fall into place, then they will. So just sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy the state of confusion.
