Since we had the ability to hold a number two pencil, we have been programmed to have answers. We were praised if we did and shamed if we didn’t. Our knowledge of answers were measured by percentages and letter grades. Then we grow up and life comes at us, and we realize that we don’t have all the answers. This creates anxiety, we internalize, and believe there is something wrong with us or our lives.

The truth is life is not meant to be a graded Scantron. Value is subjective. Worth varies. Perspective changes everything. Seeking answers can create cliffs or lead you down a dead end. Life is about seeking truth. This call to action is what allows you to go through your own inner journey and in that process, shedding, growth, revelations, and learning. Seeking what is honest to you, right now, whatever that is, is what will evolve you, position you, and give your life meaning. Not having all the answers.

It’s okay to not know.

Just do what’s honest to you. Because answers can lead to regret. Your truth will never.
