We take for granted that there will be a tomorrow. When we get into our car we expect it to start; when we say good-bye to a friend or loved one we assume we’ll be able to talk to them or see them again, etc.. Create a list of your own certainties, the things you take for granted.
Certainty makes us lazy and disempowers us from making every moment count as if it were the last. The saying that the only thing for certain is change has become a cliché, and is not taken seriously most of the time. Here are some things to contemplate about the need for certainty.
- Fear of the unknown
- Fear of death (if not your own, of another)
- The need to control the outcome
- Add your own
What you can do to begin to embrace uncertainty:
- Use a plan loosely as a guide not something set in stone (stone can crumble under pressure).
- Intend to make every moment with those close to you meaningful.
- Don’t leave anything unsaid or doubt in another’s mind (be clear).
