My life has so much uncertainty right now and I”m left in a state of waiting.
This is not a state I enjoy. I want to plot and plan, but it feels like a waste of energy to do all the permutations. I do not have enough data.
Here’s a sample of the questions I am waiting for answers on:
- What will school look like for my elementary school aged kids? (Will is be in person, distance, or mix?)
- How long will my hubby be on orders?
- What will my day job look like in the next six months?
- Will there be a second wave of COVID?
I can’t make these answers come any faster.
The phrase you can’t control what other do, only what you do is also caught in my head.
So I decided to do small things that are on the path I want to go down.
I want to be fitter so I started doing push-ups every day. I started out doing girl push-ups on my knees and now can do real ones. Three days ago I startied doing push-ups twice a day. Even though I am not yet fit, doing a real push-up feels like success.
I want to get more writing done so I signed up to do a posting a day on a private writing group for the month of August. I am hopeful that I will end up feeling successful at the end of the month.
How are you dealing with your uncertainty?
1 thought on “uncertainty”
The idea of doing push ups is healthy for the body and mind. I deal with uncertainty be giving myself small wins like treating myself to a favorite meal or movie. I take 1 thing off the to-do-list and complete that. Win. Bigger issues I talk it out with someone close. Someone out of the box might give me another perspective. When resting, I leave my worries in another place. Sleep time is not the time or place to sort stuff out.
