Signs, Words, ... Everything is real.

Should we take things we see as signs?

Lately, I cannot help it but I do.

I live in Istanbul. It’s been a year and half. I am working in a visual communication studio as a production assistant.
Months ago, I got sick. I wanted to do everything, and I couldn’t. I wanted to spend time with my boyfriend, wanted to have time to read books, listen to music, go shopping, cook at home, have time to talk to my family and friends more and spend pretty much amount of time on practicing my drawing. Ah! Forgot to tell you, I work 10 hours a day!!! So, yes. I got sick. There was too much pressure on me. I realized I have to pay more attention to my body and to my mind. I had to organize my mid. I had to make my body stronger, so I could tolerate all of these pressures.

In result, I found myself thinking about yoga. And yes! I started. The first weeks was a total challenge. My body was dry as wood. I couldn’t touch the ground without bending my knees. I couldn’t breathe. My breath lasted till I counted to 2. I felt like I was a chain smoker for all of my life (which I weren’t).
I had to read, I had to find answers. I had to practice more, because I thought I don’t even know my body, how I want to know who I am in life.

Somehow my journey started at this point. I am still a beginner, but even till now I have learned a lot.
That’s why I love yoga. I am eager to wake up every morning to practice. Gratitude the sun, earth and the fire in me. I have a much clearer picture of me in the world.
These days I don’t hate the office. But I am sure I will not spend my life here. I have this tendency to learn more and more, and pass it over to people who want to learn.

I think after all I deserve to interpret everything around me as a sign to inspire me in this way.

Getting to know Cat (my friend at work, a traveler, and someone whom I will be missing a lot when she leaves Istanbul), Ozge (who happens to be in yoga teacher training program and sits beside me in the office), reading all these articles and so on… I took them all as a sign that I am much more closer to find my answers in life. 
Photos, inspiring quotes .... everything means something more to me now. 

What about you? Have you find your way? 
I read this quote , and I just loved it: 

I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.
I’m not.
I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.
I’m not lost, I’m on my way.
