So often I wish I had known about that particular information earlier – when I was younger. But, how are we supposed to know when we don’t know?

I would respond by saying, ‘we search.’ And we never stop searching.

We certainly aren’t going to discover anything new by pondering it on the couch. We must show up, dive in and sort our way through the chaos. It’s not going to be pretty, but life doesn’t work that way.

It’s messy. It’s unpredictable. And it can be very uncomfortable. Even painful at times, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Because from this pain comes the gems of wisdom, knowledge and life experience.
