Another period of uncertainty has begun. Mary just finished her assignment in Chattanooga and we vacate our apartment this weekend. Then we will face the choice of too many choices and no good criteria for deciding how to pick one. This feels like familiar terrain to us at this point, but that makes it no less difficult to navigate.
But I’ve been realizing that the only important decision is the one I am making about what to do right now, at this moment. Everything else I either have no control over or can only be revealed by time. What I do this next instant is what determines the quality of my day. What I do next will decide the course of life in the only context that matters. Right now.
