Lost and found

Only in running shoes have I ever been both lost and found in the same moment….

Where do you go when you feel lost, and desperately want to be “found” again?


I go to the roads…  The trails…  The trees…   I lose myself physically in the geography.  And in between the deep, gasping breaths and the beats of my heart – in rhythm with my footfalls…

Among the sights, the sounds, the animals…

 And the conscious decision to believe, “it will be okay; it will work out and you’ll get back okay”…

I am no longer lost.  I know the direction…

 It is forward.   No matter the obstacle.

  No matter.  

No matter.

You will never be found if you never get lost.

    Em, the past month I’ve been lost trying to find the new me through yet more migraines, only different now. I am fighting depression and pain everyday. What you wrote was perfect and inspiring for me. I am still searching for the new me, but now I don’t feel as bad being lost. Thanks, Nancy

      You have a helluva battle on your hands, I’m glad I could inspire in some way. I’m still here for you, despite the epic BS I’m forced to drown in right now.
