the older i get the less i know.
there was a time when all the routines were in their rightful places: weekend creative time, morning runs, ritual breakfasts. then everything changed all at once, and the last year was set off into one of no routine: a pendulum swing to the other side of not knowing what the day will bring. the paradox here is that this phenomenon, of not knowing what the day will bring, has been true all along -- we never know what the day will bring; it's our "in touch-ness" with this fact that ebbs and flows.
the bigger a life gets - the more experiences it holds and learnings it observes - the more respect we have for that which we don't know. you don't know what you don't know until it swings around the corner and stands straight in your path. rather than tense up and flurry about trying to know, we can relax into what life brings, channeling elizabeth gilbert in this interview by approaching life with curiosity rather than fear.
