I know what to do

Just five little words. But somehow they make you feel calm, determined and together. I have fallen in love a little bit every time someone says that. And every time I have said it to myself, I have felt a little bit more confident, sometimes even Salander-like. Because knowing what to do feels good that one second, while it still feels significant and effective. Even world changing. Often however it becomes very mundane and tedious. But still, it is comforting to know what to do. Even if it's just knowing which file to attach to a rutine mail, or which eye shadow to use. Somehow being so sure about the small mundane decisions makes it easier to give up on certainty when it comes to the big ones. The decisions that are not mine to make, things that I cannot influence in any strategic or active way. Things that are unknown, "unknowable" until they just happen and make decisions for me.
