Inspirations by Frances Durrisseau
I came across a quote in a meme on social networking that I love. I do not know to whom I should give credit for the thought or ownership but it said: “All who wander are not lost”. I have been lost and wandering in the wilderness of life on many occasions, which led to many times of wondering about many things, mostly that begin with the words why, who, what, where ,when and how.
Why was I led into the wilderness? Who was really with
me in my tear-soaked-fear and anxiety-filled journey? What was my purpose there and what would come from it and, when it came, would it be something good? Where was this journey into the wilderness leading me? When would it end and a breakthrough come, how was it going to happen and would I recover from it, grow from it, or even survive it?
I have survived all the imposed wilderness wanderings in
my life. I am learning to take on a bit of wandering just for the thrill of it at times and finding that those wanderings can leave a positive impression in my life. I have found that even those unexpected and scary wanderings that I’ve had to undertake all really did have some good in them, even though it took
me some time to see it.
Wandering and wondering have had their purpose in my life. I might have actually been found, not lost, after all.
