Our path in life often takes us to places we didn’t expect.
The thrill of the unknown is what makes this path so interesting and exciting. But for some, the idea of not knowing where they are going can be quite frightening.
To overcome that fear, it is helpful to just look at your own journey, and what has brought you to where you are now.
Did you think that the one choice that you made 20 or 30 years ago, whether it was what school to go to or what job to take or whom to date, would have such an impact on your life today?
Sometimes the smallest of decisions can lead to enormous differences in how our journey unfolds. The key is that we do not have the perspective to see how those small decisions are not so small at all.
So why are we afraid of the unknown? After all, isn’t all of life an unknown until it happens?
Making peace with our unknown future helps us to live more fully present in our lives, and allows us to be guided in a more supportive and effortless manner.
So let’s all learn to be curious about the unknown instead of fearing it!
