Don’t Search For The Answers

June 11, 2015

Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
– Rilke, Rainer Maria. Letters to a Young Poet

A quote that really resonates for me. Words of wisdom that seem so much like common sense, but a common kind of sense that we easily forget and need reminder of day after day. Let’s take this as a reminder today to just keep living in the present and juggling all the answers as options for ourselves. Some good, some bad, a few somewhere in-between. The best one for you will be there waiting. But don’t let your idea of the best answer be the one and only in your head, because it might not actually be the best one for you. The best one might be the most unexpected. So just know that it will come when it wants to come, and that it might just be worth the wait.
