The following quote spoke to me as a valuable life lesson.
The one thing I learned is that I don’t know anything.Shonda Rhimes – Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person.
We sit there like the thinker with all these questions in our head, hoping for a crystal ball.
But it really is true – we don’t know anything.
But, sometimes, I wish I did know.
I wish with everything in my body, every bone, every muscle, my whole being, to know.
“When I do A, when I take the leap, what will happen? Will I get the outcome I think I want? Will it be worth it?”
So I try to think it out. Beforehand.
But, the life lesson here is, that you really can’t. ‘Cause part of being human is not to know anything beforehand.
It’s all about faith and trust.
And I’m so grateful that there are no guarantees. Because with knowing, there’d be NO adventure. Challenges. The positive excitement. The gloriousness of the unknown to be discovered.
All that wouldn’t exist if we knew what was coming.
And wouldn’t that be a shame?
All I know is that I’m curious to find out.
