Recently they went looking for Amelia Earhart again. Didn't find her again. They've looked for her remains and her plane for years. They won't give up hope. They're convinced something is there. I've read about the evidence and there's reason to be convinced.
They could be wrong. But at least they know what they're looking for.
If you wish you knew what you were looking for, the next week or so here might be for you.
Is this you?
- you want something but you don't know what it is
- you feel you need a change but you don't know to what
- you're lost in a non-man's land of comfort, fear, restlessness, and fog
- but you suspect your restlessness could be just a season of life
- or you fear you're wimping out and just want to escape
Who knows why we get restless and feel the things we do? Very possibly it IS just a season, or a desire to escape.
But shouldn't you maybe try to find out?
You wouldn't be hungry if there was no such thing as food. You wouldn't be thirsty if there was no water.
If you sense a hunger and thirst, could it be because something is there?
And if there's NOT, wouldn't you want to know that, too?
Whatever reality is, it's best to face it and get it over with.
I wrote Scary Hope about embracing fear and change, and pursuing hopes and dreams. But what if you don't know what you're hoping for? What if your hope is fuzzy?
Mine is. I'm a fuzzy hoper. But I'm slowly learning how to bring it into focus. You can, too. And you can help me do it better.
For the next week or so you have an opportunity to take a step closer to clarity on that fuzzy hope inside you.
A week to squint and stare at this Sasquatch that may or may not be real.
Every day or so, I'll start the musing and thinking and question asking. Maybe you just read and ponder. Maybe you think and answer some questions for yourself and even pray.
Or maybe you go deep and tell this thing to put up or shut up, and tell it that if it has something to say to come out in the open and say it.
You might even share your own story and journey, either in comments or privately in email. And I'd love your feedback on the whole process. Your feedback might help me put together some kind of guide or ebook that will help others even more.
By the way. Safari is a Swahili word that means 'long journey.'
I hope our short safari here is the beginning of a long journey to a good place for you.
Tomorrow: The question that changed everything for me.
