Nobody knows what will happen in the next moment of our lives. Whatever is in store for us, the only thing we can be sure of is that nothing in life is certain. And since we all fear the unknown, life's uncertainty can be a constant source of worry to us. But, as bestselling author Susan Jeffers explains, life doesn't have to be one worry after the next, a steady stream of "what ifs" and a constant attempt to create a secure haven for ourselves. In this title she emphasizes that an unknown future doesn't prevent a rich and abundant life and shows how, by enjoying life's unpredictability, we transform ourselves from a position of fear to one filled with excitement and potential. Through case studies, exercises and pragmatic wisdom, the author attempts to convince us, above all, that life is exhilarating because of, not in spite of, uncertainty.

Introduction How Do You Choose to Live?

Now, more than ever, we need something enduring to hold close, something that won't wash away in the furious tides of change.
--Walter Cooper

Embracing Uncertainty is a book about sleeping better at night . . . about easing the pain in our brain that comes from trying to control the uncontrollable . . . about making life more of an enriching adventure than a continuous worry. It is about providing that "something enduring to hold close, something that won't wash away in the furious tides of change."

The wise philosopher, Alan Watts, points out that there is the feeling that we live in a time of unusual insecurity. He attributes this feeling to the many new technologies with which science and industry are bombarding us. He also attributes it to the many long held traditions that have broken down relative to family life, religion, and the world of work. Now here's the surprise . . . Watts made these observations in 1951!

I would venture to say that the feeling of insecurity has greatly escalated since those seemingly "good old days"! Since then we have lived through many events that have further eroded our sense of security, none more startling and upsetting than the destruction by terrorists of the World Trade Centers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington on September 11, 2001. So many people from all over the world lost their lives. And so many lost people they dearly loved. What happened on this historic day has had the effect of putting the entire world on a state of alert. For how long? Only time will tell.*

*This horrific terrorist attack took place just as I was completing this book. I remember thinking to myself that if there was ever a time when the world needed to learn how to embrace uncertainty, this is certainly it.
