“If uncertainty is unacceptable to you, it turns into fear. If it is perfectly acceptable, it turns into increased aliveness, alertness, and creativity.”

I think this is a great quote and defines a bit of where I am at today in terms of this journey. My confident self loves the idea of the adventure of uncertainty. In fact, it keeps my attention. The parts of me that struggle with uncertainty and anxiety are driven to just find a solution to this uncertainty.
I acknowledge the parts of me that are anxious, fearing failure, longing for someone else to approve of me, wanting to have it all figured out. No sense in trying to get rid of these areas, they are as much a part of me as my confident self.
My confident self knows that I have what it takes and that those other parts of my ego can speak, but not direct my life. I choose to live with uncertainty and choose the adventure of this.
