The vast possibilities of anything happening: the unknown.The near perfect mixture of excitement and fright. The unknown knows no borders, no limit. It embodies hope and relentless determination. Without the unknown we have nothing to strive for. Imagination would lose its sparkle and the future would seem dull. They say “ the best laid plans often go awry”, with the best moments in life being the ones that never seemed possible. The unknown is what keeps the world wondering.
Wonder can quickly turn transition to fear. As if you were standing in the middle of a field with nothing around you for miles. During the day with the sun shining nothing seems like it could go wrong , but as dusk settles the fear sets in. With every crack of a stick your heart pounds a little faster. Just like the meadow that’s how I think of life. With nothing staying constant for long. The unknown is what keeps our mind alert. Ready for anything.
It’s the perfect mixture of excitement and fright that makes unknown my favorite word. Not because of how it’s fun to say or that it makes me laugh. Unknown has the power to make me humble. When I ever feel like I have control I remember all the unknowns. All the things that could go wrong and everything I could never imagine in my wildest dreams. The future is unknown.
