- My Q: What is your career goal (if known)?
- My student’s A: “Does anyone ever really know???”
I LOL’ed sitting alone on my couch holding their stack of papers:
Does anyone ever really know?
Yes, wise pupil. Some people know. You don’t know right this minute. That’s ok.
Can you relate? I can.
My name is Georgi, and I’m a recovering control freak. I often think that not knowing is a problem. I want to know everything now and I don’t. I want to fix everything immediately and I can’t. I want to trust that my life will continue to surprise and delight me and yet, I have doubts. That’s ok.
Let’s face it. It has to be ok.
Life presents problems.
But here’s another beautiful thing life will offer: Solutions.
Vanilla Ice rapped, “If you got a problem, Yo! I’ll solve it.”
Do you have a problem? Please call Vanilla Ice.
HA HA. Totally kidding. Don’t call that guy! Guess what, yo? We don’t need him. If you’ve got a problem, Yo! It’s ok. You’ll solve it.
Solutions are coming.
BUT WAIT!!! HOW DO YOU REALLY KNOW???
A-HA! Gotcha! Watch out for it: Anxiety and fear can skyrocket when you journey into the unknown! It feels terrible, right?
We can work on that. Lookout, Vanilla Ice! Here’s a new rap:
Yo! You’ll solve this. It will be ok. It’s ok to feel scared and anxious. It’s probably because you care about this situation. You care. You are full of care and desire. That is important. And there is a solution to your problem. There could be many solutions. If the exact solution isn’t clear right now, it’s on the way.
Solutions are on the way. Help is on the way. More information is on the way. More pieces to the solution are coming. Relief is coming.
Get quiet. Give it a rest. Give it some thought. Give it some time. Give it more space.
Gorgeous, human reader. Messy, beautiful soul: If you’ve got a problem, yo, you’ll solve it. You will solve it. Maybe the solution isn’t clear right this second, but get quiet and trust your inner guidance.
- Q: Who really knows?
- A: You. You always really know.
Loving you out there.
Solutions are on the way.
