No Worries, No Mistakes

We spend a lot of time thinking about the future. We might be thinking about how things will go at work, or who is going to win an election or a football game. We might think about when or if we're going to meet the right person or how we're going to know what is next for us.

And we simply don't know any of those things. Right now, we can't know. Even if we go to the best psychic in the world, we won't know for sure.

This creates a lot of worry and stress.

And yet, no matter what has happened in my life, the good, and especially the bad, when I have looked back at it from the perspective of a few years, it seems like it was for the best. That I learned something valuable from it. That I grew.

Can we see this right now? Can we trust our uncertainty?

Looking back, it seems there are no mistakes. And if that's true, it means there's nothing to worry about, either.
