[Five Minute Friday] Lost

You don’t have to enter a labyrinth to be confused.
You don’t have to drive with a rented car into a city you’ve never been to before to take the wrong turn.
You just have to get up in the morning to get lost.

Lost in the sea of emails flooding your inbox everyday.
Unnecessary info you forget as soon as you read it.
Invitations to events you can’t possibly fit into my already busy schedule.
People asking you to do something for them as if you weren’t super swamped already.

Lost in the masses of voices penetrating your mind everyday.
Did you do this already?
Are you aware of that deadline?
Have you heard this rumor?
What are your thoughts on that issue?

Sometimes I just want it all to stop.
Where is the PAUSE button for my life?
Sometimes I just want to be found.

It doesn’t take much to be found.
Like an email from a friend in the sea of junk, encouraging you.
Like a text from a friend asking how you’re doing and praying for you.
Like the quiet voice in your heart telling you: Listen to me. These emails and voices don’t matter in the long run.
It’s okay to be lost.
But know that I have found you long ago.
And I’ll continue finding you no matter how deep you’ll be lost in life.
