We Don't Have to Know Everything

It’s hard for me to “just let go” and let things be what they are. I’m not the type to try to manipulate a situation, though. No, I must analyze it. And then analyze it some more and then analyze those. But, that doesn’t really get me anywhere – although it is a great time-waster. The fact is that over-analyzing things conveniently keeps us from making decisions or getting off our asses to actually DO something. It’s a crutch.

I’ve used that crutch in work, play, and relationships. And it’s made me stagnant in those situations when I did. It takes a conscious choice to avoid those kinds of situations in life. And for someone like me, it’s work at making that conscious choice. But, it’s worth it.

The truth is that we don’t have to know everything. Hoping for certainty in this life is taking some of the excitement out of it. If you wait for all the lights to turn green before you leave the house, then you’ll never get anywhere. Be open. It’s ok to start a journey without knowing where you are going. Try it once and see how it feels. You may be surprised by the lights turning green all around you.
