When we make choices, we open ourselves up to hard work and failure and heartbreak, so sometimes it feels easier not to know, not to choose, and not to do.

And yet last night I prayed for just one thing in my life to be certain. I feel like I’m in the middle of the ocean of unthought knowns. Like I could swim in any direction but I can’t see land on any side so I don’t know which way to go. So I'm just treading water to stay alive.
