My friend Charles LaFond says it wonderfully.
“Raising my tolerance for uncertainty is the hardest heavy-lifting I have had to do in my life.”
I continue to learn that underneath most of my plans, most of my meetings, most of my committees, most of my worries, most of my fears — and currently, holding vigil for my Grandmother to pass away — there lays an inevitable uncertainty. Coming to terms with this, rather than the natural ways that many of us unconsciously avoid it, is indeed heavy lifting.
Read Charles’ full post. It is worth it. He says it well and in a way that feels particularly poignant now.
