Background of a blue sky. Pig in a zebra hoodie with a thought bubble with a jumble of things, including a videogame controller, paint brush, paint pallet, notebook, pencils, ruler, eraser, sharpener, and a sketch of a heart. Text reads: “Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.”
Picture of a heart with darts that are hitting it. From above a dove descends from light towards the heart. A pig in a zebra hoodie peeks up from the bottom of the image and above him there is the text that reads: “Pain is real, but so is hope.”
Picture of the ocean with birds flying in the sky. A pig in a zebra hoodie stands in the fore ground, cheering. Text reads: “It’s important to remember that nothing ever stays the same! No matter how hard life might be at times, it won’t last forever.”

Learning To Be okay With The Unknown: Why Embracing Uncertainty Makes You Stronger

Hello Dazzle! Thanks for coming and hanging out with me today, I’m glad that you are here. Today I want to talk about the art of embracing uncertainty and the ways that doing so makes you stronger. I have been struggling a lot with feelings of uncertainty in my life as of late and have been struggling to feel more comfortable with them.

What does hope mean to you?

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet – never – in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of me.

It could be worse

But I wish it was something better

Burning pain

Branding me, scarring me, breaking me

In all the places you cannot see

I walk through the crowd

A spector of suffering unrecognized

Looking the same as those around me

And I wonder if they feel the same

Bitter, iron bars caging around me

Biting down into my bones

Seeping into the fundamental programming

Forever altering who I am

I clutch upon the thing with feathers

That perches precariously in my soul

I wish I could hear it sing

Letting the little bird go

I watch it fly away, fly away

And with a fragile voice

Begin to sing

Language Has Power

When we choose to use positive language, we are more likely to think about and engage with the topic in a positive way. Like wise, negative language is more likely to evoke a negative response in us. This is important because our minds and bodies are connected. Our expectations can influence the outcomes. This is why the placebo effect exists. When we believe that we are getting treatment and are going to get better, we have a better chance of improving our physical well being; even if we aren’t getting treatment. This does not mean that we can magically cure ourselves of all ills with will power, positive thoughts or good vibes. But what it does mean, is that we can help our bodies foster an enivornment for healing.
