Purpose

If not already, then hopefully at some point there will appear someone in your life who will ask you what you’re doing; and they’ll ask why you’re doing it. People will ask these questions of you and others because they observe you and/or them acting with purpose and behaving with commitment to something (anything); they may be curious about what the secret is to finding a purpose and sticking with it. It becomes very difficult to continue along a path you are following unless you have a reason to do so; you can manufacture a reason after the fact, but doing that is usually unsatisfactory since you haven’t actually defined or completed a specified goal, you’ve only appeared busy to others, but mostly to yourself. If appearing busy is your goal, then you will accomplish it easily; there is not much effort involved in running around in circles. If you have something in mind that you really want to accomplish, then your purpose defines itself and you will have no difficulty with motivation. It is those who create thoughtfully designed goals that show the visible and stimulating purpose that others find so attractive. And aren’t these purposeful people attractive as well?

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. Great little ponder here- I often wonder how someone, or so many peoople, could possibly NOT move forward with purpose, but I guess some wheels need cogs now don’t they?

  2. Yes of course grease too! Thanks
