If 2020 taught us anything, it taught us that most of life is outside of our control. There are so many unknowns in life. And while I love a plan and a schedule and an idea of what is coming next, I also know that I have to roll with whatever life gives me.
I had a flight credit from my cancelled Florida trip last year, so I came down to visit my family for a long weekend. I know that is a privilege that not everyone has, and I’m not certain how to navigate that conversation.
Florida is a little different for everyone. My family and I did go out for dinner, but the mask rules are very similar as Minnesota. My mom and I walk on the beach in the morning, but its more spread out than walking around Lake of the Isles.
I don’t know what this summer will bring, I have an idea of the weddings I’m invited to, but how things will change in the next few months is a mystery.
While this blog is called “looking forward” I’m fairly regularly thinking about the past, and what I should have done, or could have done, or how things would be different if I had made another choice.
So I don’t have much to say this week, other than to acknowledge that most things are outside of my control, and I’m thankful for the time with family.
Do you think you know what the future holds for you? How do you deal with the unknown?
P.S. I apparently I also used the word “unknown” for week 48, so clearly it is a topic still on my mind.
