Uncertainty is a harsh mistress.
January 22 2007
Why is it that we spend so much time second guessing ourselves?
It seems as though the entire world is saying, "This is it! Now is the time that you will decide how the rest of your life will turn out."
I find myself uncertain of everything about the next few years of my life. Am I going to the right school? Where am I going to live? How am I going to stay out of the financial gutter? Am I making the right decisions? More importantly, am I making them for the right reasons?
I'm afraid of making the wrong choice.
Even worse, I'm afraid of not making a choice at all and letting opportunity slip through my fingers.
That first big step into the unknown is always the scariest. Or, so I hear. I'm hoping that after the first plunge it will get easier, or that I will at least become braver or more confident.
