We assume that,
Within wisdom,
Lies strength and certainty,
and within certainty
Lies a sense of perfection.

But this isn’t always the case.

Ironically,
The road to wisdom
Is shaky and uncertain,
and I am extremely grateful
That I am still traveling down that road.

On that road
I’m learning to trust,
I’m learning how to be strong
in the face of uncertainty,
and I’m learning how to proceed
and how to persevere–
despite fear.

Better yet
I’m learning how to embrace that fear,
and I’m learning how
To forgive myself for my shortcomings.

Best of all, though–
I’m learning a ton.

And that is invaluable.
