A perfect mess.

My life is a mess right now. But it's a perfect mess.

I don't have a clue what I'm doing with it. I don't know if what I am doing is right. I don't know which direction I'm supposed to be heading in... although if someone could point me in a good direction, that would be fab. Or even a nudge. I'd take anything.

But I don't think it would be much fun if we all knew what we were supposed to do. We wouldn't appreciate when things, actually, every so often, do go right. We wouldn't be able to laugh at all the stupid decisions we've made before. We wouldn't have the chance to meet everyone we have along the way. We wouldn't be able to learn.

When I look at other people, and where they are with their life, right about now, I'm sometimes tempted to wish that my life was like that. But then I remind myself, that that's their life. Not mine. I want to make my own story, so I'm going to continue to do just that. Whether it ends up being a success, a thrill, or just a down-right comedy, it's going to be my story to tell.

So while, yes, I'm in a bit of a pickle at the minute, I'm going to get myself out of this little pickle, and be able to look back, laugh, and learn, from all of the pickles I have, and am certainly going to, find myself in. 

Because that's what life's all about, right? (....No, not pickles.) Learning and making mistakes, but laughing about said mistakes along the way with your nearest and dearest. And then reminding them of their very own daft and ditzy moments. And actually, I wouldn't have it any other way.

  1. Absolutely, 100% agree with this. I know it's a well known quote but 'life's a journey, enjoy the ride' is so true isn't it? Ultimately, we all end up in the same boat but it's about what we did on our way there that matters and as long as we're happy, it doesn't matter if we don't really know what we're doing xxx

    1. That quote really is true :) Thank you for reading lovely :) xx

  2. Nothing wrong with being in a pickle, just keep doing what you are doing and you will find your feet eventually :)

  3. Definitely! Sometimes the pickles in life are the best learning experiences. Here's to growing, learning, & being our best selves! :]

    1. I totally agree! Hope you're okay lovely :) x

  4. You're absolutely right! I know exactly how you feel and though I'm super frustrated with life right now, I know it's all happening for a reason! And really being able to laugh about it all in the end is the best thing!

    1. Ugh, let's hope we get out of it soon Ash! Hope you're okay! :) xx

  5. Great post and very well written! I hope you get out of your pickle.

  6. I couldn't agree more with this post, I always find myself thinking my life is a mess, but it's my mess and I couldn't be happier that sometimes I can't control everything!

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one! :) Thank you for reading Jodie! xx

  7. Definitely nothing wrong with not knowing - I haven't got a clue either! Great post Sophie!

    1. Haha, maybe we're all in this together! Thank you Lucy! :) xx

  8. I can relate to this so much at the moment. I feel like all of my friends have got their life in order, they have a direction they're heading into and have it all figured out. I feel like at the age of 25, I should be at a different place than where I am right now. But then, when I look at it all more closely, I think... I don't even want to live my friends' lives. I am more than happy for their happiness, but it is not my happiness. So I am going to continue the search for my purpose in life :)

  9. So true what an honest and relatable post x

  10. I'm in the same situation of being in a bit of a mess and learning that that's okay. It's hard sometimes to be like actually I don't need to be perfect. Life is made of the messy bits and it's grand!
