Saturday ramblings

I have a confession to make... I am a HUGE quote person. I absolutely love anything philosophical, reflective or existential, and quotes very often tap into that kind of thinking. I am well aware that not everyone will agree with me and some people find quotes a bit life coach-y and silly, but I find them extremely useful and inspirational. I have started to make a habit of putting one or two quotes scribbled on a piece of paper on my dressing table mirror each week, to help put me in the right frame of mind every morning. I thought I'd share just a very small portion of the quotes that have made me smile this week (excuse my amateur photoshop skills ha, I enjoy creating my own images wherever I can) x

Aww I love this! The second picture and quote is my favourite <3

I love quotes too, I used to have post-its with quotes stuck to my work computer to make the work day more bearable! xxx

Oh, these are lovely. I think the first is my favorite. Such beautiful colours. And I would hardly call your photoshop amateur.

Lovely quotes, and lovely photos!

Funny story about sticking things on your dressing table mirror - I moved out of home for the first time after I got married, and my honeymoon was the longest length of time I'd spent away from home. One time when I called home during our honeymoon, my brother told me in a conspiratorial whisper that he thought my mum was going crazy out of missing me, because she'd covered the whole of her dressing room mirror in photos of us from our wedding.

When I came home there were only three left in the corner and my mum fervently denied my brother's story, although she eventually caved and admitted it was true.

Love this! I used the last quote on my blog yesterday :)

Jorji said...

I'm also a huge fan of quotes. Very similar to your first one and one that always makes me feel better is "Never regret anything because at one time it was exactly what you wanted"

I love how you put the quotes over the photos. In my old house I had a wall that was a mirrored wardrobe and I would write quotes on it in whiteboard marker.

I'm a huge quote-lover too! There's something so lovely and satisfying when a few sentences can hold so much truth and wisdom. All the quotes are great, especially the Cummings one. One of my favorites is a similar one from Ralph Waldo Emerson: "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

The pictures are beautiful too. Thank you for sharing :)
