Our future is uncertain because our knowledge is imperfect. We must embrace uncertainty to be fulfilled in our lives because uncertainty is ever-present.

Epistemic uncertainty is defined as those uncertainties due to simplifying assumptions, missing physical data, or our basic lack of knowledge. Epistemic uncertainty is limited by our understanding of what we know (knowledge) and our choices in applying the knowledge (judgment).
