KT Tunstall

One of my favorite artists is KT Tunstall. Her voice is amazing and her lyrics touch my soul. One of my favorite songs from her is called “Beauty of Uncertainty.” Its a beautiful song in several ways. It embodies the ethereal quality that her voice can have and she manages to enunciate the words correctly (yes, I am a nerd, but 7+ years of choral training make you appreciate correct enunciation).

Most important though is that phrase: the beauty of uncertainty. As I listen to the song more and more, I know that I need to embrace that beauty. It scares me when I don’t have a clear plan or when I don’t know what might happen tomorrow, but it’s time to get over that. I don’t have to know everything to do something.

That doesn’t mean avoiding planning or pretending that goals aren’t important; it means appreciating the flexibility and open horizon of the future. I can do anything I want with my life. And that is beautiful.
