Where am I?

I often catch myself asking this question. Mentally scrambling to remember what I was last thinking about before being distracted. At least that’s what I thought. Today I realized I needed to answer myself. “I am here”. But where is here? Somewhere that isn’t mine. If this space isn’t mine then where do I go? I am here but I don’t belong here. Where do I belong?

is it a riddle? What are you? Are you a post card? A squatter? A cherry tomato in a fruit cup?

You belong

You belong where you are, unless you're in prison or in any situation you want to get out of, if that's the case you belong somewhere else. So go, or stay. Hey just don't think about it so much. Think about abstract art, say.

Existentialism

A common issue for me these days too. I was once incredibly organized and focused, but after a couple of very difficult decades I’m finding myself feeling completely discombobulated. But I’ve learned that where I am is often exactly where I need to be at the present time. It’s what I can learn from my surroundings and my situation that keeps me from losing it when I feel that way. Trying to live in the moment as much as possible without focusing on the future or the past. Appreciate the good things each day, especially the small things we often take for granted in a privileged society. Do you have a warm place to sleep? Do you have enough to eat? Things like that can help you to put your thoughts into perspective.

Remember what you learned on Sesame Street when you were young: Anywhere you are is here. Anywhere you are not is there.

Your feeling of displacement makes sense. We live on unceded lands. Most are unable to afford a home even if they wanted to.

Hold your babies close

If your parents left you to cry it out as an infant or you were often left by yourself this thought makes sense. You’re learning to reparent yourself and hold a part of you that is lost, scared, tired, and confused. Like holding a small child and soothing them while repeating ‘I’m here’.
