U is for Unceasing


Unceasing. It’s the word I’m stuck with today… Thinking about things that are unceasing.

For me there is a negative connotation to this word – unrelenting, constant, persistent, incessant… then again, to have these qualities may drive us to get what we want in life. Or drive us mad trying.

Even being unceasingly positive can be a negative thing – there must be a balance to everything, even if it’s weighed heavily to one side. Because eventually, it all falls back in the other direction, doesn’t it? How would we have hope in our darkest times otherwise? The phrase – when you’re at rock bottom there’s only one way to go: up – comes to mind and it’s true. Unless you go splat of course.

Wow, that’s depressing.

How about some good news? The unceasing pain in my shoulder is gone. It turns out the tendonitis that caused the frozen shoulder was a blessing in disguise. Having my shoulder frozen meant that I couldn’t aggravate my tendons because I couldn’t move. SO, now that the tendonitis is gone and with it, the excruciating pain, I can move my shoulder more and the more I move it the more unfrozen it gets. Yay!! I’m still going to need physio – I’ve got a long way to go before my arm will move normally and my muscle tone has gone to pot, but it’s a start! I can honestly say I’ll be working relentlessly to get myself back to health. Unceasingly even.

  4. I was thinking the same thing about a-z, unceasing and unrelenting. maybe I should freeze my knee so the pain would cease.

  6. Reblogged this on What's Rattling My Cage and commented:
    Great post Linda! You stole my thunder because this is the perfect word for “U”! I will still use Unceasing because I have a different approach! Love your posts always!!


  7. I’ve always viewed it as good. Unceasing love. That’s what I always associate it with. Good old hymns πŸ™‚


  8. You made me think. Ow. Why are “constant” and some of the other words not negative but mean the same thing. And “unceasing” isn’t specifically negative, but like you, that’s where it takes me. The ocean is constant. That’s reassuring. I think it is because “unceasing” has the desire to have something “cease” not quite implicit in it, but almost. “It won’t stop!” she sobs.


  9. I’m so glad to hear that you are heading toward pain free Linda. I’m not sure if you saw my PT blog entry, but the foam roller tube I described is one of the things they had me continue using after I was discharged and it really, really does help. It’s awkward and sometimes painful to use, but it really helps


  10. I’m really pleased for you that your shoulder is feeling better now πŸ™‚


  11. Right now this blog challenge feels a bit unceasing! Glad your frozen shoulder is on the mend, though πŸ™‚
