The Gift That Is Uncertainty

“The Gift That Is Uncertainty” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

As a child, the air around me was alive with a buzz.  Uncertainty made me happy, perhaps it made you happy as well?  To not know what game in school would be lined up, or what mood my best friend or worst enemy would be in on that day, was mouthwateringly savory.  I was expectant and happy to find out in the moment.  Life was boring when it crept into routine.  The shaky ground of uncertainty made my fun bone quiver with a dizzying aliveness.  

So what happened?  How did I become someone who wants things to go according to a plan?  With my high rate of screw-ups, the last thing I’d want is for my life to go according to my highly screw-up-able planning.  ‘Cos then I’d really be screwed, thinking about the plans I made just 5 years ago, I laugh hysterically at the absurdity of those plans now.

Wisdom doesn’t always come with age; the kid me was wiser about it’s approach to uncertainty.  When it knocks I won’t open the door partially and make excuses anymore, as I would in my kid days for a friend I didn’t feel like hanging with but who already knew I was home.  I’ll just remember the buzz that ran through my every cell, and let that be a password for me to access my joyful and irrepressible nature.

Blessings, Babajide

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi.  I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19.  In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search.  I read voraciously.  After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now.  And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.  The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are – and
