I look up and down, to the left and the right,
Searching for something, just out of sight,
Calling out to me, whispering truths,
But as hard as I hunt, it remains out of view.
I use a telescope, to extend my focus,
The further I scan, the more it seems hopeless,
Maybe I’ve failed! It must have escaped!
I blink and it’s staring me right in the face.
Throughout our lives, we all have things that we strive to find, without knowing exactly what form they will appear in or even from where. Be it finding love; a complementary career; friendship; financial security; acceptance; your voice; confidence; etc, know that you’ll be kept on your toes along the way.
There is no clear cut path, no blueprint, no “one size fits all” assurance in finding what you’re looking for. If you are lucky enough to get good advice, from someone with insight into the matter you’re pursuing, this is merely a signpost, sometimes towards a moving target.
One thing that I’ve often found when searching for something important to me, is that it’s somewhat different to what I’d initially expected, usually in a good way (as in a pleasant surprise), also, its easier to find when you’re not looking ferociously, and not sticking to the obvious places to look.
It is often closer than you think, and waiting for you to align yourself with it. You must first be internally ready to receive that which you yearn for, otherwise it will only show itself in the form of a lesson. Also, if it takes a long time to find, it’s usually so that you fully understand the respect it deserves.
Is there something you’re currently searching for? Remember to find yourself, and find gratitude for the blessings you already have, then you’ll find that which you seek.
Love and Respect always,
