When We Don’t Know

P1280386

We don’t or can’t always know what lies beyond the door, or if we even have the courage to open it to see if we want to take that step. Sometimes it’s scary because what we thought we knew or held to be true is challenged to the core. If we don’t know but decide we’ll take a chance on the unknown and that there is a bigger plan of which we’re not aware — whether it seems too late, too early, or right on time — and we embrace and walk through the grief and fear, we can reach the other side and fly . . . at least until we reach the next cliff. As the rabbi said: The pessimist says it can’t get much better; the optimist says it can’t get much worse. “I believe I can fly.”
