Day 7--

Yes, I know, I missed two days!  I said I was going to post everyday for 40 days.  I missed Sunday--was traveling a bit, not being in front of the computer (a day of rest from the routine).  Then, Monday, I just let the day slip by!  So now it's Tuesday and I find myself in a quandary.

quandary dictionary definition: a state of perplexity, a situation in which you are confused about what to do.

What do you do when you can't make a decision? I am reminded from an earlier post of a tip I gave to my readers about making decisions:

(Little known fact:  "If not 'yes' then it is automatically a 'no', or,  Failure to make a decision is a 'No' decision.  'Yes' takes action and is most times hard, where 'No' can stay in the status quo.)

So to take my own advice, I cannot stay in this quandary of indecision.  If I choose to stay in my 'status quo' situation, I don't decide to move ahead.  I must put crippling fear (fear of what others might think) behind me, and move my feet toward the future.  I can do it!   My only quandary now is, how do I explain where I want to go?  It's kind of like this picture.  Going from dry land in the foreground to the mountain top (and might I say, that I have never been to) that is obscured by vapor and clouds.  How do you explain where you have never been?  Especially if you cannot see clearly thru the diffusing haze suspended in front of the destination?  

I have a meeting tonight, and I have to make this decision.  I must drive on thru the confusion, NO more quandary!


  1. This is what helps me out when I'm stuck in that place of not knowing how to explain where I have never been.
    Explain how I want to "feel".
    Then, make a list of things that make me feel that way.
    Do some of those things.
    It can hep free me up to imagine what that place I want to be is like, and if not, no worries, I feel like that already. It's on its way...

  2. That is an amazing picture!
    I like what Renee says about making a list about how one would like to feel.
