I have no idea of the endless number of things that I don’t know.
Like the number of stars in the country sky on a clear moonless night…
Or the number of waves in the ocean…
That sort of uncountable number.
There are some things I’m coming to know.
For example, It’s impossible to anticipate all outcomes.
And, I tend to forget what I learn.
And, I need reminders.
That the practice of being patient, especially with myself, is a worthy effort.

& Knowing my mind-eddies or pitfalls is helpful, so as not to become discouraged & give-up when they arise.
That every choice has a consequence. Sometimes it’s feel-good-ish, sometimes it’s ego-scraping. Either way is an opportunity for benefit.
& That a flower, with the help from a honeybee, warmth from the sun, & rain to nourish the soil, can eventually become a pea is a Miraculous Thing.
Of course, there are other things
But these are the things on my mind…
As I sense a shift in my life
Maybe a shift/choice, that’s been brewing for a long while.
It’s time for an effort to be made to head back to school.
A big step for me, as it will require much effort as I challenge a lot of old beliefs I’ve had about my level of intelligence, & scholastic abilities.
But I sense it to be the best next step in my life, & find energy coming into me when I focus there.
I don’t know how it will go
As I move towards getting a degree in mental health counseling, with a focus on grief & end-of-life issues.
There are many steps yet to take in the application process.
But I’m game to journey that proverbial “thousand miles” & begin.
More to come.
