Relentless

Leave a comment

RelentlessRelentless energy or curiosity or even optimism, though that can be wearing at times, are generally a treat to be around and a pleasure to observe. We may be a bit jealous at the success someone receives by possessing and using these traits, but mostly they serve as examples to us and encourage on our own way. But the relentless pounding of  countless waves of discontentments like not having enough money, going to work at the same dismal job everyday for little or no reward, or the desperate loneliness of one who spends little or no time around adults engenders many negative feelings. It is very hard to venture new things or throw oneself into tasks, or to learn when drowning in woe with no perceived support. However there is one resource we often don’t take into account; we always have it with us for it is ourselves. The relentlessness of boredom or repetitiveness can be overcome by the way we think about them and the way we think about ourselves. There is no reason for us to allow the less positive sides of life to rule our worlds; we can begin the challenging task of hauling ourselves out of all the negative bog we believe surround us. Can’t we?

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.
