In flux, things flow, but where to?

No matter how settled in we feel, we live in a state of flux. I just got news today which reminded me of this.

I miss stability and planning for the longer-term. I miss living in a house I own, and can live in without being at the mercy of someone else's whim. I miss knowing (or at least, thinking I know) what the next year would bring. We used to make decisions or do things today, with a clear vision of why and how it would be good for tomorrow. Now we live in the present.

Of course, in life, any certainty is an illusion. It's just much more pleasant to live in the bliss that ignorance affords.
