There’s a lot of pressure to know. It can seem wrong to not know. There are so many devices that exist to give us the blessed information within seconds. Alexa. Wikipedia. Google. News sites. But what are we supposed to do with all that information? My experience is it leaves me wanting more. It’s not satisfying. And it makes my brain feel stuffed and not as effective.
I’m realizing it’s okay to say, “I don’t know.” It’s not giving up. It’s an acceptance that I can’t know everything, and I wouldn’t want to. And the truth about not knowing is that it creates space in me. There’s a peace in that space. And often with that comes an intuitive knowing of what I actually need.
