I know what’s best for you

Undoubtedly we’ve all heard someone say to us during our lifetime that they know exactly what we need, what would be good for us, what will make us feel better. At times we may actually be looking for help; for advice, a sounding board, options to cogitate over; frequently though, we are merely asking for input and not for instructions. When we know the advisor quite well or are related to them it can be very difficult to continue the relationship in harmony if you decide to opt for a different course of action than was suggested. Since when we are close to someone we don’t want to hurt them it can be hard to take the path we have chosen to take; we must do so though, or we will be mired in conditions not of our choosing. There are others, not necessarily close to us at all who see themselves as wonderfully intuitive people with vision who can tell your mind and heart at a glance; these controlling people may think they are acting in the best interests of everyone, including you, and are puzzled and may get angry when people don’t do as they have said they should and believe that is best for them. With these people you have two options: you can face up to them and let them know you will run your own life and go your own way, or you can remove yourself from their presence and influence. In any case, you are free to choose your own life’s direction, aren’t you?

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.
