Thoughts From The Wilderness – Why?

Not that there has been a lot going on in my life at the “old homestead”, but there seems to be a lot going on at the “old homestead.”

Not with us so much, but with me.

I have been in a rather darkish place for the past number of weeks, or maybe even longer than that.

I’m stuck swirling around a seemingly never-ending vortex of the question, “why?”

Why my life or what is my purpose in this life?

I don’t think any of you can answer that for me. But, if you want to, please give it a go.

I get that many of us have been battered and bruised over the past year or so with the mental wounds caused by the pandemic. I include myself in that group.

Maybe it is just as simple as that. Burnt out from a year of this. But again, who knows.

So, this is where I start my day again.

And to be honest, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to answer that question. It’s been one I’ve been trying to answer my whole life.

— as always with love —

— get outdoors; find inspiration; discover yourself —

  1. Hi Glen. It has been a hard year for sure. I used to ask myself what my purpose in life is, and wondered all the time why am I here? The answer came to me that my purpose is just to be here. Simple but true. You don’t have to do great things. You just need to be.

    1. Thanks Michele. I think it is different for everybody. I for sure this has been a difficult year without a doubt. The mental toll of this plays a big part as well. It just feels that at this moment I have this lost feeling. We also have some concerns regarding the mentla wellness of of daughter in Halifax. Unfortunately, I can’t get the time off and would have to isolate for two weeks even if they would let us in. Very worried.

  2. I agree Glen, it’s different for everyone. So sorry to hear about your daughter. That would be hard for me too. I worry about my grandkids and daughters and that does put an extra burden on all of us when we have love ones far away. I hope things get better as the vaccine becomes available for everyone and we can travel without having to isolate. Seeing and hugging our kids once again is something we all need. Isolation is not a good thing.
