you are exactly where you need to be…

Getting older in life, is nothing like I imagined it to be. I feel that recently, since hitting my 20’s, life has become more complicated, in many different ways. In ways, I cannot even explain or justify. But I think that this is the adventure of life in a way.

I found this photograph on Tumblr, which I found really fascinating and intriguing. “You Are Exactly Where You Need To Be”. This really made me think. Am I supposed to be where I am right now? Are the people in my life now, supposed to be there as well? Am I supposed to be here right now or somewhere else? Is there more out there for me? Looking at this image, it really took me to another place. It made me reflect on my life right now, at this very moment.

I think in life, there is more than meets the eye. Yes we have eyes and we can see where we are and where we are going, but there is so much more. There is so much more that is bigger than our minds and our bodies. Now, this, is something beautiful in life, which I think everyone should realize. I think that the experiences we go through, both good and bad, are leading us to something. They are leading us to the unknown. Now, the unknown is definitely something which people fear. I can even admit that I fear the unknown at times myself. I don’t know what will happen, I don’t know who is going to be there, I don’t know how things will fall into place, or if they even will. But, in order to experience life to the fullest and really fall into it, you must allow yourself to fall, no matter what happens.

But I can definitely say that in life, you must dive into the unknown. Yes it is scary, but you will find things there which may surprise you even. Life is bigger than what it seems, but that is the beauty of it.

    Great post, your post make me think of this phrase “you never try, you never know”. I agree the unknown is scary, some people will run away, some people will choose to face it.

    I am exactly where I need to be, but I rather be over there. I tend to want to be somewhere else when I need to be in the moment. I have a hard time paying attention to the person in front of me because my imagination has taken me to another place. Perhaps I need a neon sign like that embedded in my brain to remind me that I am exactly where I need to b

    I have to agree with you there is so much out there that is unknown but it is scary to venture out of your own comfort zone. I used to not like doing anything I am unfamiliar with but slowly I am working towards not being too afraid to try something totally new!
