Phun-size Philosophy # 26 – Lost

When it comes to something being lost there are generally two different ways for which it can be expressed. One way to interpret it is by saying that something is no longer in your possession or control. This could be referenced when you are talking about losing the remote control in the couch and it usually applies to objects other than yourself. The second one which I feel like is the more philosophical definition is when you use the word lost in context of something is unable to be found. One of the biggest things that are usually hard to find in a person’s life is their purpose and the meaning to their existence. I will get more into this later but I like to refer to this popular saying first. When you are trying to find a way just think that “if there’s a will, there’s a way.” Even under insurmountable odds, the human spirit can make and do amazing things when put in the right situations. There are plenty of miracle stories where people have survived in even the most inhospitable situations. If you are stuck it usually means that you require external help to continue on. If you are lost on a trip you probably have to ask for directions from a local or require other assistance to get through path blocking obstacles that prevent you from pressing forward. Sometimes in life there are some advantages that allow us to get a leg up or avoid problems that others may face when they are on a quest to find what they are looking for. If your child has been kidnapped and you are rich, you can afford to hire a private investigator to find them for you. Sometimes in life you need to discover and find things on your own without the help of other means. It may be hard to find if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for to begin with but all the help in the world cant determining the right way to live your life for you. You need to continue living life and do things that interest you and maybe even stuff you might not particularly want to do. Through that you gain exposure and perspective to whole new ways of life which may help you find what you are looking for.
