In reality there is a lot I don't know. There is more I don't know that I even know I don't know because it hasn't even hit my radar yet. It is not just relegated to topics I haven't studied like Portuguese or heart surgery.
Every day there are things I don't know. I give my best guess. I try my best solution. It's all we can do, right?
What if that isn't true? What if our best option is to simply witness and wait? What if the answer is coming in its own time if we sat still long enough to hear it?
I do not know if my dog will recover from another round of pneumonia. All I know is that we are trying and beyond that all I can do is wait. I do not know what has my little one so completely out of character the last couple days. I can keep guessing and finding out I'm wrong again, or I could just witness it and be there for her as we wait for the answer. I do not know what is going through my oldest daughter's head. But maybe if I wait and just witness she may share some of it with me when she is ready.
I don't know. I really, truly do not know. But what if I just witness the discomfort of not knowing until it maybe isn't so uncomfortable?
I'm grateful to be taking more time lately to just sit and let my mind wander. I'm grateful for all I know. I'm grateful for the things I don't know that can help me grow. I'm grateful for patience and practice building more. I'm grateful to slow down and just witness with a little less focus on solving. I'm grateful for a little quiet time.
May today remind us we aren't supposed to have all the answers. May we find acceptance and maybe even some ease in not knowing. Have a beautiful day!
