What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do

We've all had moments when we felt lost, stuck and unsure. I remember being exactly in that state for what felt like the longest time last year and not having a clue what to do or where to start. It's ok to not have it all figured out. Sometimes getting lost help you truly find yourself and what you want.
Today I'm sharing with you some of the tips I used to help me handle those moments.
. Breathe .
Don't panic, don't stress, Take a Deep Breath and Pause for second. If you don't know what to do, don't just rush into anything to feel like you're doing something. Don't make any dramatic decisions. Wait until you've figured what you really want to do, then do that.

. Pray .
Thank God, pray for strength and guidance.. Just talk to God. Let him take over your life and guide your steps. Praying always helps me feel better. Whether I see the light right after a prayer or not, it helps me keep the faith and be at peace.

. Meditate .
Find a nice, quiet and comfortable place and just sit there. Clear you mind and get in touch with yourself. Sometimes we know what we want or what we have to do but we can't clearly hear our thoughts because there are too many distractions around. 

. Be Active .
You're more likely to find inspiration while being active. Get out there and expose yourself to as many things as possible. Read, write, interact with others, keep your mind stimulated.
"Inspiration exists, but it had to find you working" - Pablo Picasso

. Be Present .
Be in the now. Don't be so focus on figuring the next step of your life that you fail to enjoy the present moment. Accept things as they are. I'm not saying settle, but let go of what you thought this moment was suppose to be and Be Happy right now.

Remember everything is temporary and you can only grow from here.
I hope this helps.

Happy Wednesday! :)

  34. I think we all have those periods. For me meditation and long walks in nature help a lot. Figuring out what we want is not always easy and it takes time. We just need to be gentle with ourselves in those moments.

  92. I'm not religious or anything but I do pray. And it definitely helps to pray because talking it out and asking for help makes things easier. You come to solutions better. It's definitely easy to freak out and have a panic attack when you don't know what to do, but I definitely agree with your tip to just relax and pray and meditate.

And shopping or course, even when it's just a little something, makes me feel better.
