We are not in control

Not knowing what is coming can seem like the hardest thing we have to face, yet I ask: do we ever really know what is coming next? If we answer honestly, I think the answer is no. There may be times in our lives when it feels like everything is going according to plan and we can figure out where we will be and what we are going to be doing 5 , 10, even 25 years from now. And it feels important to remember that we are not in control here. We could be hit by a bus tomorrow, or, on a slightly happier note, we could win the lottery tomorrow. Or things could continue the way they are right now. We really don’t know. I think the answer to all this uncertainty is to be the best you can be, and do the best you can, all the time. Do the prudent things that you can do to make your future better (like save some money and stay fit), and don’t spend your time worrying about the future. Live in the here and now – it’s really all we have – and it is enough.
