"Why are you so lost?"

 
 

I once had a professor, who in my most unsure and insecure moments.. when all I wanted was a touch of clarity about a future that seemed so vast.. looked me straight in the eye and asked me: "Why are you so lost?" and walked away.

For almost 3 years those words radiated through me, never left me, was trapped within me. But I realized tonight, having gone through those few years, that I have never been more clear. And I have never been more proud of that question he asked and the tears I cried thereafter. I know now what my answer is. It's this, it's here, it's this moment of clarity and joy and hope. That's why I was so lost, sir. And thank you.
