IWSG Anthology_Elizabeth Seckman Has the Answers!



I asked Elizabeth:

 What makes a person a lost soul? 

What makes a person Legend? His deeds? His Loves? His death? 

How do we lose our way? 

How do we find our way back to ourselves?
 
Roland, such a short question 

but so very profound that people have spent lifetimes and volumes of words in answering questions such as these.  


But I’m far more simplistic in nature, so I’ll only need a few minutes to explain my two-cent philosophy.

What makes a person a lost soul? 

Not having direction or connections. People get lost when they have no goals or purpose. 

I believe humans were created to well, create…and to love. 

Whether it is painting the Mona Lisa or finger painting like a three-year-old, we are content when we are accomplishing. 

And we all need goals- be it collecting coins or climbing mountains. And we also need to be needed. 

Giving to others, either our families or even a pet goldfish, fulfills our need to be.

What makes a person a legend? 

Doing something people remember…a
feat so impressive it spans the decades and centuries.

How do we lose our way? 

We forget our purpose in life. 

 Not having a purpose leads to emptiness and a feeling of disconnect with the world around us. That’s when we get lost.



How do we find our way back? 

Find a purpose. Devote your energies to that purpose. And remember to share yourself with someone—even if it’s online or feline.

  2. Great answers to fascinating questions. I've known a few lost souls. I think at one point they all wanted to be legends and couldn't. Great interview.

    1. I think most lost souls wanted to be whole but just did not know how. :-(
