I’ve had a major epiphany this week: there will always be uncertainty. You can’t eliminate it – in fact, as you start to dream bigger, uncertainty seems to increase exponentially. That may seem like a horrible epiphany (because, really, who loves uncertainty) but I’ve drawn quite the opposite sentiment from it. Uncertainty will exist if I stay in my house and never do anything at all, and uncertainty will exist if I shoot for the stars. So I might as well just shoot for the stars, for there will always be uncertainty.
I’ve also, hand in hand, discovered that more planning doesn’t necessarily mean that uncertainty will go away, just that perhaps you’re more prepared for it. So there comes a point, and I’ve just about reached it, where it makes more sense to put the researching and waffling aside. It is time to make decisions, and move forward, for there will always be uncertainty.
When you’re sitting still, it almost seems that uncertainty has a way of feeling mightier and scarier. Movement, however, brings the discovery that you can indeed survive uncertainty – even flourish in the midst of it – and that robs uncertainty of much of its power. So I still have major butterflies over everything (and there’s a big announcement coming tomorrow – speaking of decisions!) but I’m also tremendously happy to be making forward motion. Wading through uncertainty, after all, is far better than wallowing in it.
Might as well be happy, for there will always be uncertainty.
