Uncertainty is in the air

“Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.”
Francois-Marie Arouet Voltaire

What do you do when you don’t know how things will turn out?

Uncertainty is such a normal part of our life. On the other hand, there are situations where it effects us so profoundly, it either overwhelms us, motivates us or gives us hope.

In some situations you might thrive on that feeling of not knowing. Maybe you decide to strengthen your relationship with family and friends, or learn to live more consciously, maybe want to learn more about what you don’t know.

However, in other situations, uncertainty can invite anxiety and worry. It is in those times to remind yourself that you happily live with it in many other situations in your life.

Instead of fighting this particular uncertainty, maybe it is time to sit with it and allow it into your life.

Ask yourself these questions:
Can I think of a situation in my life where I was confronted with the reality of uncertainty?
How did I manage this uncertainty? How did I manage the anxiety and worry that came with it?
Can I think of a situation in my life where not-knowing showed me other possibilities of doing?
Can I think of an example where I experienced uncertainty as a gift?
