Clarity and Certainty

We all crave clarity and certainty.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t ever work like that. Life is like a dark tunnel; many people spend valuable time waiting and hoping the tunnel eventually turns on its lights so that they can take a sure step forward. But sadly, the light never comes on.

The trick is to trust in your steps and keep on moving forward. Your steps maybe unsure and shaky because you can’t really see what’s ahead but keep on moving, you may stumble and fall which is okay, get up and keep on moving.

The beautiful thing about taking a step forward in the dark is that it makes for pretty interesting unexpected collisions. It is the unexpected that often changes everything.

So, be anxious for nothing. Embrace the uncertainties of life. Some of the beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.

“The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers.”

— Erich Fromm

    Ah! This is so true. Many times we feel anxious and worry about life being orderly as we want it to be.

    The trick is probably to just do all we can, when we can, with what we can.
