Wandering, Seeing, Staying Open
As a task-driven person, I can have difficulty with being aimless. The devil will find work for idle hands to do, and all that. Though I often wander, there is still some internal structure to my non-plan plan. That structure just might be the loosest wisp of an idea but it still spins the needle on my internal compass.
When I don’t have a specific place or thing that pulls me into an unfamiliar area, I sometimes have to gently remind myself of all that is just waiting to be discovered before I set off. The key is to remember that seeing just one new and unknown-to-me awesome thing will have made the trip worthwhile. And when a place is unknown to you, the probability is pretty high for stumbling across something interesting.
Stay open to possibility. Don’t be afraid. Or, be afraid but go anyway.
