What do you consider to be the ULTIMATE unknown? The ULTIMATE level of uncertainty?
For me, that particular fear has always been around losing a loved one. Even though I’ve been learning a lot about managing uncertainty, in the back of my head, I’ve always wondered how I would deal with my ultimate unknown whenever it happened.
Well, it almost happened. On November 8, my mother suffered a brain hemorrhage. She is showing small signs of improvement, but her future remains totally and completely uncertain at this moment.
This has been a good reminder to me that we will never be free of uncertainty, and honestly, I don’t ever want that because we need it for our own growth. But this has also been the biggest test of everything I’ve learned this year.
I’m happy to say that some of the techniques are absolutely working for me, particularly meditation. I thought I would be a wreck when I saw her, but somewhere I’ve found strength to be here for my family. Don’t get me wrong…I’m letting myself have a good cry every now and then, but in some strange way, I feel like the Universe has been preparing me for this. It’s been arming me with the tools to face this and be a rock for my family.
