the comfort of not there yet

“Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see further.”
– Thomas Carlyle

When my life feels particularly in flux and I get to worrying about the future, I feel better when I remember that I don’t have all the information yet. There are opportunities and vistas up ahead that I can’t possibly know about now. And worrying will not bring me any closer to them. I can only see what I can see on this very day, in this very moment. What a comfort that is.

How far can you see today?
