When your at your lowest of lows it may feel like theirs no way back up from the nethermost of your psyche however the smallest thing could change your mentality if you allow it. There are symbols all around you that may hold inner value which with that right frame of mind could give you the inspiration you need to come back up. It might be as simple as a flower in pure bloom , the sound of the Canadian geese flying home from a winters stay or a broken sign pointing in the wrong direction.
I think the most depressing time of year is around the end of the month of February you know the middle and the ending of winter because its cold theirs dirty ugly snow everywhere , I haven’t even had the motivation to go out and do photography , every time I try all that comes out of it is bad lighting , foggy lenses and a non attractive pile of dirty muddy depressing snow in the back round. So I decided to try and find something good about this time of year and the one thing i can think of is the fact that I have recently hit remission from crohn’s disease last year at this time I was just getting diagnosed I’m not going to go into grave detail but it was bad I lost at least 30 pounds in no time at all i had active Arthritis could hardly walk was losing hair from all the steroids and other medications i could go on all day…however almost 1 year goes by ( it will be a year on April 10ish) and everything has turned around the arthritis is not active I don’t look like a walking pale zombie and I hit remission 3 months ago! all this could change in the blink of an eye so the moral of this is I shouldn’t be complaining about some dirty old snow and cold winds I should be embracing the fact that I am alive and well and am able to do anything I want so I declare i will no longer let the “weather” dictate my frame of mind am I hope no one else will either.
Sorry for venting but i needed to let that out!
