Possibilities

In any set of circumstances there are many possibilities regarding the outcome. An important thing to remember is that the possibilities encompass all outcomes from thrillingly positive to frighteningly negative, but that we have an influence on them. And it is possible to look at the outcome from either a positive or negative standpoint. In that sense we have control over the direction any possibility travel toward. We may be more drawn toward one path more than another and we should think about what we’re doing before we’ve leapt into doing it, but once we’ve determined the possibility we’re irrevocably drawn to we should continue along that track until we reach the end we’re hoping for, until we reach a crossroads., or until we’ve failed to reach the desired ending point. Failing to reach the goal we thought possible is not a purely negative outcome and does not have to be the end of our hopes. There are many more possibilities awaiting us and we may reach our ultimate goal through another means entirely. The only failure is to refuse to see and acknowledge that there are more possibilities, endless possibilities to explore and to create ever more opportunities for us to experience and to take advantage of. As dim as your outlook may be, there is always the possibility of turning it around, to go in a new direction, and to find success in your endeavor. With positive possibilities you have only satisfaction and more to enjoy, and to enjoy the process as well. Exploring the possibilities available to you is a much better strategy than merely waiting for something to happen, don’t you think?

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.

  1. I LOVE THIS.
    Create your own destiny, I think is what you are meaning.
    Don’t sit and wait, go and do.
    And for every action there is a reaction, but we can have a say, or even change that action.

    Brilliant piece !!!
