Delicious ambiguity

Today Bree asked me what is my favorite word and why, and I just so happened to feel like sharing it with y’all!  Here’s what I told her: So in hindsight my current favorite word is actually ambiguity. It’s from a quote of particular substance: “Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity…” – Gilda Radner. I think this quote speaks to me lately because we are at the precipus of a time in our life defined by ambiguity. I do not have the slightest where life will lead me within the next 5 years, but I am excited. As someone who likes to make plans, achieve goals, and know what’s coming next, thinking of ambiguity and embracing it as a positive is like a mental stretch. Adventures would not be so exhilarating, new romance less sweet, and accomplishments less gratifying if you always knew they were right around the corner. Life is about the journey and ambiguity is present every step of the way so why not embrace it!
