I have made a career out of goal setting, minor deliverables, creating structure. And right now, I DON’T KNOW what is next.

This occurred to me while chatting with a friend. “What is next?” Simple enough question, right? Yet, for the first time in a really long time, I had absolutely no answer.

This place of not knowing has always been a bit unsettling for me. I like to have my schedule planned, I look over my next day before I go to bed and work back my timelines for everything I need to get done. I have specifics I want to accomplish by certain dates. It is how my brain works.

And now. I don’t know.

You might think this is giving me massive panic attacks (some days it does), and yet, I have never been more clear in my direction. There is a freedom to knowing what is important and the feeling I want for my future, while not knowing exactly how it is going to play out.

Of course I had a plan, one I was fairly convinced of not too long ago, and then the magic of the universe surprised me with a detour. I anticipate it won’t be the last, my road seems to be a windy one. I know as long as I can stay guided by my vision and my core values I will be guided exactly how I need to be.

So for now, I am going to be ok in not knowing. I am going to trust the universe while keeping my discernment in decision making. And I am going to stay open to all of the magic my life has in store for me.
