The Uncertainty Of It All

From my personal perspective, I’ve discovered that one way of inching toward inner peace is to become more and more comfortable with uncertainty. I’m no Buddha (I’m a wanna be!), but learning to accept the fact of uncertainty often ameliorates the coupled feelings of anxiety and loss-of-control.

As an example, take a look at these five unproductive blank entries from my “gym notes” journal:

I don’t recall if something “I thought serious to ME” was dominating my mind at the time and contributing to the writer’s block, but I do remember not getting my knickers in a bunch. I remember thinking: “Oh well, I’m sure I’ll start filling the entries with inane thoughts soon. If not, then so what.

Soon enough, my unorthodox thought stream reemerged on 8/27/17:

The uncertainty of it all. It’s wonderful, no?
