Most of us live to minimize uncertainty, as it seems like a cause of a host of problems like anxiety, frustration, health issues, financial problems and relationship issues.
But uncertainty is not the terrible thing we make it to be, and it is possible to find joy and delight in the feeling of uncertainty.
Much as we avoid it, uncertainty is a stage of growth and learning. It is uncertainty that gets us into intimate relationships, creativity and anything new in our lives.

“Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
“Sometimes problems don’t require a solution to solve them; Instead they require maturity to outgrow them.”

CLT identifies our minds as information processing systems.
