I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity. ~Gilda Radner
Today I wanted to talk about ambiguity and how uncomfortable it can be at times. I, for one, would like to know that my life is laid out at least a teensy-weensy bit. But there are constant reminders that it just ain’t so.
This week a work friend lost her husband. They were all packed up, ready to retire and hit the road in June, but within a month of being diagnosed with cancer her husband passed away. We were all so excited for her and now everything’s changed.
Sometimes it’s hard to accept that life throws such devastating curve balls. But I have learned that while the world is confusing and complicated, it is equally wondrous and beautiful.
How do you handle ambiguity? What deliciously ambiguous situations have you been thrown into? I would love to hear from you!
