Is being in the unknown uncomfortable for you? It’s natural to seek certainty. It gives you a feeling of being safe and secure.

You can develop your ability to be comfortable in the unknown by seeking ways to find answers and centering your self in the process.
You have what it takes to deal with the unknown and will get better at it as time goes on. The next time you are wanting answers, embrace and make the best of being in the unknown!
