Uncertainty

 

A86C3D1B-AAFC-499F-8258-355E5C68C48A

Sometimes in life

You have to live with uncertainty 

And wait for clarity

Sometimes this depends on the people around us

Whose decision affects us

Certain questions don’t have a yes or no answer right away

The answer could be I don’t know or maybe, I’ll tell you later

How does one deal with uncertainty?

Perhaps through faith in the people around us

Those whose decision will impact us

Perhaps through prayer

Perhaps through resignation 

Accepting things as they are

In any case uncertainty is part of life

Missed connection

 

imageWinter
Holiday season
Travel
Missed airline connection
Frustration
Impatience
Resignation

A different sort of connection
Impossible without the missed one
Sometimes the world seems to have
No rhyme or reason
Sometimes what seems random
Is actually not

I’m learning to take what comes
Try not to make a fuss
In every missed opportunity
Could be waiting
Another one

Never despair

Peace of mind

If we see someone smiling
It doesn’t mean they have no challenges in life
We have gained wisdom if we can smile
Despite the difficulties of life

I used to wonder how is it possible to be happy
Despite the troubles of life
Then I read: ” Peace of mind is the result of
Not paying attention to challenges that are not
worth thinking about”

So, the problem need not go away
My attitude has to change
The importance I give it has to change
My focus should be on positive things
That way, my problems don’t have power over me

I can complain or I can be content
I can look at the glass as half full or half empty
I can put my focus on things that are going well or not
I can be thankful for the blessings I have or not
I can be optimistic that problems can be resolved or not
I can resign myself to situations I can’t change or not
I can try to learn from the difficult experiences of life or not
And finally, I can create my own peace of mind or not!
