Indecision

Although we may have made plans, and even refined them, sometimes circumstances change and we are impelled to change our plans quickly or perhaps we haven’t made any plans, but must do so quickly. If we haven’t thought about or anticipated what is going to happen in our near future we may seem indecisive or we may be indecisive. In general we are better off having plans and contingency plans so that our indecision does not lead to any kind of trouble. When we know we have a fallback position we can go forward with more confidence; with a backup plan we are not caught short and don’t have to make a quick decision that may be a bad one. Yet there are times when indecision may serve us better than we would expect it to. When we’ve planned something without thinking it through or use uninformed advice from another indecision on our part may prevent us from an undesirable or path. Or if we’re indecisive enough to slow our pace we may observe the continuance of the plan may hurt or inconvenience others and choose to move to a backup plan. Being welded to one particular course of action can be as damaging, or more, than wavering between several. This means that, if possible, no action should be taken without careful thought and consideration or that no proposed action should be set in stone so that one change plans as circumstances change. Why not feel OK about a little indecision here and there?

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.
