Life is not cast in stone. It is cast in sand.
That’s what I told my fifteen year old niece when talking to her on the phone today. She was feeling insecure about the classes she had chosen to take this semester. She said “I want to make the absolute right decision.” I tried to explain to her there are no certainties. We make what we think is the best decision and then we move forward with certainty.
I also tried to tell her life is ever changing and having the ability to let go of the past and live in the present was more important than making the absolute right decision.
