Uncertainty Brings Excitement Instead of Fear (Today's Reflection)
Take a moment to look at today’s Daily Reflection. When you are done, take no more than 10 minutes to answer your self-reflection questions:
Uncertainty brings excitement instead of fear.
Each chapter of my life comes with its own doubts and expectations. I look forward to them just the same.
Being unaware of what tomorrow holds is exhilarating because I expect only wonderful blessings. Each experience has some positive value in it. I choose to adapt that mindset and use it to make the most of what life throws my way.
When I take medical exams, I avoid feeling worried about the results. Taking this approach prevents me from belaboring the unfavorable possibilities and allows me to focus on the present. Knowing that the results are unpredictable encourages me to enjoy my present moments.
Applying for a new job is sometimes nerve-racking, but I proceed with confidence. I envision the awesome possibilities that await me regardless of the decision.
Fear is a choice that is poised to ruin my peace of mind. Being able to live each day to the fullest means abandoning worry in favor of joyful existence. Each morning I pray for acceptance of the outcome for whatever decision I am awaiting.
Waiting gives me a chance to be thankful for what I have and hopeful for the goodness that tomorrow holds.
Today, I am excited about what life has in store for me. Knowing that wonderful things are possible is enough of a reason to live positively today. I am blessed and that is enough for me.
