What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
Thank you so much for all of your sweet words and congratulations on Monday’s post. You guys are really just the best. It makes it so much better and more real to have so many people to celebrate this new step with!
Now, I’m a planner at heart. I like to know as many details as possible before new things happen. Neither one of those things meshes with life at the moment. I have so. many. questions.
Like, how are we going to fit an entire extra human into our tiny shoebox of an apartment? Because we resigned the lease two days before we knew about little.
What exactly will the next few years look like? No clue!
Where is Chris going to work? Not the slightest idea.
Where are we going to live? Haha, such a funny question.
I’ve heard the expression “I know God is laughing at me!” And while I don’t really like to think of God laughing at me, I can’t help but think he’s at least chuckling a little bit up there.
And the thing is, in this time of just total unknowing, I’m learning so much and nothing all at the same time.
I’m learning that it’s okay to feel like you know nothing. It’s okay to not know.
I love planning. It would be really nice to be able to sit down with a planner and pencil in the answers to all of the questions I have, but not being able to do that doesn’t stop life from happening.
It would be really nice to know what city we will live in next, but I don’t even know what state will be home, and that doesn’t mean we’re not going to have a home that we love next summer.
Just because having a baby wasn’t the plan and I’m not really sure how it’s all going to work out doesn’t mean that it’s not going to be the most exciting, wonderful change.
Just because life is changing and happening without my permission or even knowledge doesn’t mean life is any less good. It just means it’s an adventure.
So I’m just over here learning that it’s okay to not know. And that when you don’t know, the best thing you can do is embrace the adventure.
Cheers to embracing the adventure. Because I have a feeling it’s going to be better than I could have even imagined.
