No, not that bottom!
A massively stress-inducing factor in life is uncertainty; of looking into that black pool and wondering where the bottom is.
Uncertainty seems to take away our options. We can’t do X because Y might happen.
So what, the worst happens! Now you know what you have to cope with, now you can make decisions, choose your course of action; in other words take control.
Yesterday I had a resolution to a long-running issue. It was not the resolution I had hoped for and yet, since that decision was made, I have felt so much lighter, so much more positive and in charge of my own destiny again. It’s as if others were pushing all the buttons, controlling way too many aspects of my life, for months.
And you know what, now that I’m back in the driving seat, I will enjoy the journey.
