I’ve noticed an unusual amount of tragedy in folks lives this last quarter of 2005. Whether it is with my vendors, my clients, or my friends, there seems to be a higher incidence of folks losing their parents, critical illness, teens in drug rehabilitation and just a sort of malaise about what is next. I know the feeling, it all seems tossed in the air, and not at all sure where anything will land. Tremendous uncertainty abounds and it is a might uncomfortable.
I am learning patience the long and hard way and learning not to attach to the outcome. That is a tough one, but essential. Yes, it is about the journey, not the destination, but sometimes it feels like the destination is unknown and like the that song by Missing Persons long ago . . . “life is so strange, when your destination’s unknown.”
