I have NO idea what I am doing with my life. Right now in life I have no direction. I am questioning my beleives, my values, my whole way of life. Deep down I think I know who I am, but for some reason I am really fighting it and questioning it right now! :( It is very depressing to me!
Ya there is definitly internal fighting going on. Listen to my head? Listen to my heart? Listen to what I’ve always known/believed? Or allow new beliefs and thoughts to dictate?
It is all so confusing!!!!
On The Brink Of ...
Issac Asimov, a brilliant writer and renaissance man, one said:
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That’s funny …”
So, you may ask, how does this bear on your internal conflict? How does this apparently disagreement between your heart and your head relate to this exciting time in science?
I’m glad you asked. One of the things that makes me stabby more than anything else is when people deny that life is a constant journey; that life is about self-discovery and not about finding your safe little niche and hiding in it.
Those “that’s funny …” moments are when things don’t go the way you think they should, and they lead to some of the most incredible discoveries there are. For instance, an astronomer named Clyde Tombaugh noticed, in the early part of the twentieth century, that the orbit of the planet Neptune was a bit erratic. It was this “that’s funny …” moment that led to the “discovery of the planet Pluto.
Yes, you may not care about Pluto, but by being aware of your own internal “that’s funny …” moment, when your head and your heart seem to be telling you different things, puts you on the brink of making some amazing discoveries about yourself.
Take nothing for granted. Explore everything. Know that you may be in for one heck of a ride, and be excited about it.
That was wonderful!
Thank you so much for that! Definitly something to think about and remember!
I am excited for the ride!
