134- Uncertainty and Faith

#Uncertainty is a feeling I struggle with daily. 

Am I making the best use of my time? Did I make the right decision? Have I contributed enough relative to the privilege that I have? Do I invest enough in myself, or do I spend too much? Am I working hard enough? Enjoying life enough? Experimenting enough

The more questions I ask, the more I have – and despite the undeniable #growth that comes from exploration and introspection, the gap that keeps me from “having it all figured out” remains.

But that gap may not be a bad thing. After all, if we imagined a person that believed with 100% conviction in every action they took, regardless of how self-aware they were – we could only end up describing a sociopath. 

In the face of inevitable uncertainty, faith is perhaps the only feasible solution—#faith in something greater than ourselves – such as karma, the universe, or God.
