I Don’t Know

I’m 81 years old and I’ve learned if there’s one gift you can give yourself in life, it’s the freedom and courage to say ‘I don’t know’.

Because I’ll let you into a secret – you don’t have to know.

You don’t have to know how you feel, or what you want, or if you’re happy or if you’re sad.

Life is full of choices and decisions, and there is so much pressure on us to make all the right ones.

But what if we don’t?

What if we have doubts and misgivings?

What if we make mistakes and contradict ourselves?
