This is not a new concept, the importance of knowing.
Except, it’s one of those I keep saying ‘aha’ to.
I really didn’t want that job at the television station even though
it was amazing I’d gotten it.
I really didn’t need to be married at the age of 23 even though
you couldn’t tell me not to be.
I’m good with knowing I don’t want to meet the end of my life wondering what may have happened
if I’d just tried…
to have another baby, to create a career that was fulfilling,
and to stop being afraid of my possibilities.
I want to thrive and show my children life is cram packed with fun possibilities.
I will raise them knowing life waits for us to squeeze and shake
every last lovely hurrah that we can out of it.
Try everything, edit later.
PS. It’s OK to not know what you’re doing too.
