Embrace uncertainty

Embrace uncertainty – that’s what I have been advised to do. And to be honest – I don’t want to. There is very little in my life right now that is certain, and I am not enjoying it.

And here’s the thing: I have thought about it, and I HAVE to embrace uncertainty, if for no other reason than it’s going to be there whether I embrace it or not. And if I continue to refuse to embrace it, I think I am going to go crazy!

So I am trying very hard to go with the flow. It is what it is, and it is going to be what it is going to be. And I kind of feel right now that the sooner I can really embrace this, the less hard (note that I did NOT say easier) my life is going to be.

But here is where I get stuck: am I supposed to fight against what is happening, or learn to adapt to what is happening? Do I resign myself to the changes that are occurring, or fight against those changes?

This is what sucks about life – there is no one right way to do anything! And this is also what is great about life – there is no one right way to do anything! So I continue to try to figure it out as I go along, making course corrections when I think it is important to do so.

If only I could figure out how to embrace uncertainty….
