Seeking

With the loss of my partner I find myself in this state of mind.
How do you find your passion for the place you once loved but now
 find it hard to stay. Can you find that passion again or do you just move on?
Time will tell.

Ah... that's a very individual question, I don't think there's a general answer to it...

This is so sad...I think there's something I don't know. My best wishes to you as you work through these difficult times.

Time will help a lot, remembering the good and less good times together and not stopping celebrating life and nature as you did together before, your friend is still within you. One set of footprints? He is carrying you.

We have had to live below the poverty line so long that I have lost my passion for painting, I can still do it as I used to, no real block, the drive is just gone. I have had to move on and my passion is to grow enough food and cut enough fire wood while working part time to pay taxes. If I had lost a person it would be harder and I don't know what I would do, I guess I am lucky and didn't know it.

Don't stand still. There's nothing here. Seek. Discover. Enjoy.

i don't know the answer to that. i know time will give you the direction you seek.

Memories get harder and harder.
Not sure if they ever soften.
It's the same with old photographs.
(I've had more luck with moving on, discovering
new favorite places...just different terms.)

All we can do it let time tell.... live well for the moment of now....

I think it won't be easy, but you are right: time will tell...

I think Birdman has some good advice. Keep active and in contact with friends and the answer will come to you.

There is nothing anyone can say that will make the pain go away. That is something you have to work through. Time will ease the pain as you seek the path that you want to follow.

time is the best doctor ... sometimes it's just hard !

RedPat said...

Life is hard after a sad time like you have had but like Birdman says you just have to get out and force yourself to do things and joy will find you. It really hasn't been very long since your loss so there is still a lot of healing to do. Thinking of you, Randy!

Michelle said...

I also agree that Birdman's advice is spot on.

William Kendall said...

I only know in such times we need to keep moving forward and push through it.

Jack said...

I know this has been a painful time for you. Different people respond in different ways, so I would not presume to give you advice.Just be assured that we all commiserate with you and extend our hopes that whatever answer you come up with is one that makes you feel good about the choice.

Paul said...

The advice I've given to several others in a similar situation to yours is this...

Give it at least one year before making any major life changing decisions.

Oh Randy, big hugs from Perth.. I can't imagine what it must be like but I think Paul is right, don't make the big decisions for a little while.
