How have you navigated directionless times in your life?

When we are pursuing our big visions there will be times when our path becomes obscured.

In Cheryl Strayed's, Wild, which I just finished reading, most of the time she knows where she is on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) and where she wants to be at the end of her 1,100 mile hike. But sometimes, like when she hikes through snow, she doesn't know if she is on the PCT, or if she is lost. She has to consult her guidebook, look for signs, ask for help from strangers, and trust her instincts to find her way.


When I graduated from college, I really didn't know what I wanted to do next. I had a degree in sociology that I loved studying, but didn't point me in a particular direction. My only guidepost came from a friend's boyfriend who had graduated the year before who said, "If you don't know the kind of work you want to do, or where you want to live, or who you want to be, go where you know people because it's important to have friends around when you're figuring all of that out."

I took his advice to heart. Most of my friends had moved to either New York City or the Bay Area. I needed to decide between the two, but again I was at a loss. This time, it was my who Dad gave me some good advice. He said, "What color do you see when you think of each place?" I closed my eyes and thought about New York. All I could see was black and white.


Then I thought about San Francisco. I saw pinks and yellows and lots of color. I decide to move to San Francisco and have lived in the Bay Area for almost 25 years!



I think when we're in unknown, directionless, lost, or "blank slate" periods of our lives it's important to: 1. surround ourselves with people who care about us, and 2. listen to the less linear parts of ourselves that know things through feelings, images and intuitions.

How have you navigated directionless times in your life?

  7. Few days ago, I was chatting with a friend of mine. We were talking about his life and experience in the drug rehab center he was admitted to. Something I came to know was shocking, his life in the rehab was nothing better than a living hell. It was pretty hard for him to overcome the withdrawal symptoms. But, somehow he managed to go through it and he is back to his normal life now.

  9. If you want to watch free TV shows and movies using streaming websites then there is no alternative as compared to putlocker. Also, we made a list of alternatives like Putlocker sites that you can use to stream movies and TV shows.

    Here is the official Putlocker website with a lot of trending and popular movies to watch.

    Hosting companies and law enforcement are always taking down free streaming sites, including long-time favorite Putlockers. So what are you supposed to do when your usual top pick for free streaming isn’t working anymore?

    Don’t put away that popcorn just yet! I tested 47 leading streaming sites for safety, usability, and speed. After careful review and ranking based on streaming catalog size, content, and quality, I’ve found offical proxy site of Putlockers.

  18. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
