Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. – Anonymous
It is not so long, that I graduated from the high school and felt full of amazing plans and blogging ideas. I literally looked forward that freedom and more time for my hobbies and plans. I almost built my perfect holiday and maybe a whole life. And then it all blew up.
Unfortunately, nothing from that happened. I stuck and all my plans and ideas go to the hell. Everything I planned just left me, and I was just sitting there and staring at the white wall. I was a giant walking bubble of nothing. I tried very hard to get over it and start to do something or create something but vainly. I tried so hard to do something that I stopped doing everything.
But one rainy (but at the same time beautiful) day, I realised what’s going on: ‘Maybe, I just tried too hard’. And that’s right. You know, it was like you try to put a ball on a roof and want to hold it there (the ball always roll down and you’ll never feel satisfied).
So, I decided I will do nothing and do same regular stuff as I always did. And holy crap it worked! It was like a giant rock that punched me in my face and said: ‘Hey dude, you have some work to do!’ ‘Yay, finally! Where have you been?’ Nah, I just chilled and stuff.’ ‘… I see (What the heck?!)’.
I just want to reassure you that where ever you are or whatever you do, you are not alone in this feeling and remember that everything is figureoutable! And today, I want to give a few tips, how you can get over this feeling and find your lost ‘you’.
#1 Take your time
I bet you’ve heard something about that type of people who appeared a small light bubble just over the head and suddenly, they knew their life purpose. Yeah, so something like that will happen to you but it just takes a time. Whatever it sounds, no matter how boring it will be, do what you regularly do (OR try something new) and it will come. I GUARANTEE it!
#2 Find your lost inspiration
Grab some books, magazine or take a look at your favourite blog that you follow, and let yourself inspire by incredible opportunities that are offered to you. I used to hate this write-down-everything stuff but I found out that it is the only way how can I keep them together without losing the single one. So, take a piece of paper and write down whatever’s on your mind right now.
#3 Share your thoughts with somebody
Maybe, you don’t like bothering people around yourself with your problems but sometimes is good to share your thoughts with your friend or just with your mum. At least, they have some experiences with this feeling and they may give you some advice how to beat this unwanted feeling.
#4 Just take a deep breath
Is there a beautiful park nearby your house? Go there. Or do you have a magical place where you find your inspiration? Go there. Or you can go wherever you feel good. Just take a deep breath and believe that everything is possible because everything you do is important for you or for someone else. Remember that!

And remember: everything is figureoutable!
