I am obsessed with memes. Honestly, I am a total pest. Show me an inspirational quote on a lovely landscape background or a cute animal with a funny saying and you have my complete and utter attention. I’m pretty sure my meme posting has got me hidden from many a news feed but there’s a reason I like them so much. Its because I do actually take inspiration from them. (And the funny ones with animals just make me smile, which is always a good thing, yeah? C’mon, you can’t begrudge someone a smile…..) I’m a thinker. I think, think, think all day (too much a lot of the time) I like to mull over ideas, outlooks and points of view. I do take a lot of comfort in ideas and quotes and if I’m stressed or upset about a situation, sometimes these ideas can really help me to gain a little perspective and just chill!
Anyway, here are a few things that have caught my eye lately.
Dita, isn’t she a beaut?!
This is a quote from a book called “The Asylum For Wayward Victorian Girls” and it sums up pretty much how I feel about life and people a lot of the time. We live in a terribly false world. I find the politics of people difficult to fathom. I sit and listen to “friends” rip each other to shreds behind each others back and then smile sweetly and compliment to their face…..I’m a truthful person. Its appearing to be a hindrance at times, but my philosophy is, if you don’t like someone, why pretend? Just go separate ways, don’t maintain a fake friendship when you obviously feel so negative about them. Some people just don’t get along, that’s life. As much as I would like it to be, it really isn’t all peace, love and harmony.
This has no words, no quotes. It doesn’t need any. It is quite simply, perfection.
And desiderata. One of my favourite pieces of writing and a good way to try and be.
