Remodeling Life

So a friend was talking about having some remodeling done, and she asked if the people knew what they were doing. It got me thinking. Do any of us really ever know what we are doing? I mean we may have some training, or at least be somewhat skilled in a given field, but do we ever really know? I think we are all just taking things as they come. Living through the random sequence of events each day brings our way, and hoping that by some twist of fate, we are able to pull things off and not make total blundering baboons of ourselves.

I don't know, maybe that’s just me.

Although, if you stop and think about everything you have seen and done in your life. I mean really reflect on everything. We all had no clue what we were doing when we started; we figured it out as we went along. Be it talking, walking, riding a bike, driving a car, parenting, writing, building computers, whatever our endeavor might have been. We were all novices at these things at one point or another. Only with work and practice and many a skinned knee, bruised ego, and/ or painful humiliating memory, did we get better, maybe even down right proficient. It all worked out in the end. (Or maybe it didn't, who am I to say)

So maybe even when we want something done, maybe it doesn't matter if the people know what they are doing. Maybe the learning is just as important, I might even argue more important. The adventure of learning something new, or starting a new project, that is the real excitement, even if it doesn't end as you expect. Who knows maybe it will be better then you expected.
