This evening I went to visit a friend who has been one of my very best for years. We’ve shared laughter, tears, the good times, the bad and through it all have managed to keep our friendship intact. A friendship lasting this long is only the truest of friendships! As I sat with her she started to explain how unhappy she is with her workplace as there are many, MANY unethical things happening there. She told me she’s unsure on how to further approach the situation. I could go on about the details of her fury, but instead I will say this:
Being uncertain is normal. I think I have just come to realize this. In my last post, I said that I daydream about all of the other things I could be doing with my life instead of my current job. I spend so much time dreaming of the things I want to do and researching the things I want to do but at the end of the day… I’m uncertain. What if my plan fails? What if I fail? What if I’m not supposed to be following that path? What if I can’t pay my bills by following this path?
After talking to my friend today I realize that I’m not the only one feeling uncertainty. We are so young and so full of opportunity that we really should be thinking “What do we have to lose?” – but why is it so hard to think with that type of courage? It is so hard to walk away from the norm and the comfort of our daily live – the lives we know we can live off of and the lives we know we can survive (barely) on a daily basis. Uncertainty, I think, is our minds way of telling us to think things through; to not react quickly but to decide in a logical way what is best for us. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but we can’t let uncertainty take over. Along with our cautious minds we need to have courage! Courage to do what it takes to get to where we want to be! Don’t let uncertainty take over, because if you do you will NEVER get anywhere. I definitely won’t sit here and tell you that I’m all courage no uncertainty. I have A LOT of uncertainty, and also a lot of courage. My courage comes in spurts. And you know what? I think I feel one of those spurts coming on!
I am ready to let go of my uncertainty and see what is out there for me!
What is out there for you when you let yours go?
Stay lovely my friends
