There’s no telling what life has in store and somehow, that’s more comforting than a pre-determined and mapped out future. Perhaps it’s because of the unlimited possibility that comes with not knowing what is going to happen next, or maybe it’s because you’ll always know that nothing stays the same forever. Oceans evaporate and mountains crumble over time, kings and queens die, stars implode upon themselves and coal turns into diamond. Change is constant. Every passing second is an opportunity in bloom, an opportunity that remains invisible to the unopened or preoccupied eye. All the while chance and choice dictate the changes that spread across the world in a ripple effect that eventually find their way to your doorstep.
You hear a knock on your door and are given the key to your destiny. There’s no telling what is on the other side until you choose to open that door. And even then you can still decide not to step through, out into the unknown. But should you take that step you can rest assured that you dramatically increased the amount of possibilities available to you because with uncertainty comes possibility. And with possibility comes excitement, opportunity, and potential. With just a single step into the unknown you are living more than the person who has walked thousands of miles down a beaten path. Anything can (and will) happen and as you take more steps on your journey the world opens up to you and reveals countless destinations or quick stops along the way, all inhabited by new people and more possibilities. The adventurer cannot fail when he/she is walking through the unknown. This is because the unknown is an adventure in itself.
There’s no telling what the future holds–the uncertainty of life is certain–and you can take comfort in that. Because not knowing what lies on the next page is what makes life worth living. Regardless of the circumstances, every passing second brings the possibility for change and opportunity. And with them, another door to pass through.
The possibilities are truly endless. Every beginning has an infinite number of ways to end.
There’s no telling where tomorrow can take you if you live for today.
