Life is uncertain.
We try to build walls around it, yet it continues to escape. Nobody could have predicted what the world is experiencing just two months ago. Nobody can argue they know what will happen in the next two.
Of course, we are living an extreme case.
But life IS uncertain, and we know it. We know how difficult it is to build a career, to make a relationship work, to be consistent in time, to raise kids, to plan for retirement, to stick to our own word, to make it worth it.
Things happen that are completely out of our control, all the time, and we suffer most when we attempt to give a sense, write a story, change it all.
There’s a way to prepare for uncertain. It is recognizing uncertainty and accept it as a given.
There can be reassurance in the chaos that surrounds us if we just stop pretending it is something we can fix.
