Friend to Self

A  L  O  H  A !

"I enjoy the texture of 
my moments, and 
do not regard them 
merely as blank 
slates to fill."

"Happiness can exist 
only in acceptance."
                        George Orwell 

"Friendship with one's 
self is all important, 
because without it 
one cannot be friends 
with anyone else 
in the world."
                     Eleanor Roosevelt

"Those that are a 
friend to themselves 
are sure to be 
a friend to all."

Taking good care of oneself meant one is easier being with others. Which means due respect for a person is of utmost necessity!

Love your fence.
And (for a change) disagree with Eleanor Rossevelt. I find it much easier to be friends with people who aren't me.

Completely agreed with Eleanor, if one has care for his own will and self respect he will sure give honour to others too

the first comment is so frustrating,
and something that i have been talking to my family
about since my return from Nepal. No need to fill
the space, just appreciate it.

Aloha from VA

I enjoyed seeing your photos of these beautiful birds!

Ruth Kelly said...

I love how your quotes match your pictures.

Charles Gramlich said...

Moments aren't blank slates. Mostly filled with worry it seems to me.

William Kendall said...

Wise remarks. It looks like you have a good deal of bird company.

How is the Californian summer treating you? Here in the N. part we are in or near the triple digits all the time now (maybe because we're further from the coast).
Great captures of near the coast!
You are missed at SEASONS and hope to see you back soon:) Am now at a new blog (because I ran out of space) artworksfromjeshstg (dot) wordpress (dot) com
Aloha - have a great Californian weekend:)

Great quotes today, friend! I love the first picture of the friendly birds. Are they doves? I also like the egret friends in the last picture. You have so many feathered friends in your new abode.

Mike said...

I'll try to be more friendly to myself.

Wonderful birds and fences. The Friendship quotes were very nice. I do agree one needs to love themselves in order to properly love others.
