A Promised Unknown

Where does the future take me? What is certain? These questions have plagued me for months. My mind keeps me awake at night running through possible outcomes of life and what the future holds. There are no certainties. Everything we think is certain in the moment, could be uncertain in the future. It all changes – despite what we want to believe. Even the people we are today could be different from the people we are tomorrow.

Stability. Certainty. Its something we all want for ourselves. No one enjoys feeling like they don’t know what will happen to them. Life is not easy but it has never promised to be easy either. Is it wrong for a person to want an easier life in the future? Or should one continue to living a life harder than it needs to be?

The future is startling. The future is uncertain. The future is a longing for something easier; something greater.
