Uncertainty and search of clarity

As we have officially almost finished one month in 2021 and said our goodbyes to 2020, a year of complete uncertainties. I’m contemplating of doing the unthinkable. This last year has taken a toll on my mental health. As it has on the whole world. And being a workaholic does not quite fix things either.

Before I could even drive I started working. My first job, you guessed it; working at a pizza place. I gave almost a decade of my life to that place. Don’t get me wrong free pizza is both a blessing and a curse lol. I don’t regret it, although it was tedious and mundane. I’ve learned a lot from it and not just how to cut and box a pizza in under a minute. Skills and knowledge that can be transferred to my current and future endeavors.

I know one thing for sure is that I no longer want the mundane life. I want my life to be more fulfilling and meaningful. Today I set my intentions high and start the unthinkable. Live life fearlessly. Outside of all that comforts me. To stop living in fear of what others may think.

“It’s risky. It’s scary. It could all fall apart. But what if it all falls together?”

Yes it definitely will be scary and very uncertain. I just believe that I need to start doing things for my own well-being. So I hereby commit to the unknown in search of my own clarity. Are ya gonna follow along?

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭KJV‬‬
