Sometimes, we get nervous. Especially when we’re attempting something unfamiliar. A task, a challenge, or a decision where the outcome feels utterly unpredictable.
But facing unpredictability is part of being alive on planet Earth. We don’t know exactly what’s going to happen next at any given moment, but we do have the power right now, right here in this moment, to choose whether or not we want to begin.
Begin learning about new experiences. Begin asking questions that you’ve held within. Begin creating instead of reacting. Begin admitting that we don’t know (and learning that not knowing is the beginning of discovery, not a stamp of failure). Begin by recognizing that you’re not alone in facing new beginnings.
You’re not the only one who isn’t sure what’s next. And sometimes that knowledge is enough to help us feel a bit less alone as we take our next step.
