Welcome uncertainty

Tea time reflections: Welcome Uncertainty

Today, uncertainty is almost always clouded with fear. It becomes a niggle that keeps us awake, steals our confidence and makes us hesitant and doubtful. Instead of ignoring it, let us make a cup of tea, welcome Uncertainty and see what we find.

I began 2021 with an intentional “Welcome!”, wanting to embrace what it brings. Uncertainty has been knocking at my door in various ways. What would be the next move for my business right now within the midst of our economic crises? What will be the most fitting future pathway for my daughter who started her last year of school? Or even what would be the best remedy for my dog’s rash!

Where have you lately been face to face with Uncertainty and how did it make you feel?

I’ve found that Flexibility is the breath that Uncertainty needs. When I ground Flexibility in an understanding of what I am aiming for I am able to allow, recognise and consider numerous creative pathways. This sense of possibility brings a relief and somehow takes the niggling sting out of Uncertainty.

Can you see how Flexibility can become a hopeful companion for the Uncertainty you face?

What other gifts have you found wrapped up in Uncertainty?

Greater collaboration? An increased sense of community as we together face our shared uncertainties? Creativity? Tenacity? Decisiveness?
