I don’t know

This is the time of year that you hear all about making predictions for the new year, setting new goals, making resolutions for an improved life.   For days we are surrounded by these thoughts, ideas, words, suggestions.

I am here to say that I have considered all of that.  My response is “I Don’t Know…”.

I don’t know what the new year will bring.

I don’t know what town I will end up living in. shrugged_shoulders

I don’t know if I will find a relationship that fulfills me.

I don’t know what career path my son will go down.

I don’t know where my daughter will live after college graduation.

I don’t know what amazing new people I will meet.

I don’t know what my next blog topic will be.

I don’t know what heart ache will be visited upon me.

I don’t know if I will be consistent with my exercise routine.

I don’t know if I will be able to take any vacations this year.

I don’t know…

Now, here is the good news.  I am at peace with that! I am at a place in life where I don’t feel that I have to have so much control.   I don’t NEED to have the year planned out.  I don’t NEED to know what is around the corner.   I am finally okay with accepting lifes surprises.   I am all about being prepared, always learning and growing, but this year…go ahead…throw me the curve balls, send me the out-of-the-blue surprises, intrigue me, raise my eyebrows, bring it on!!

    Being able to accept that we don’t know, is a very good thing isn’t it?
