Inspirational quotes

At this present time in  my life my mobility has almost come to a full stop there are  various reasons for this that I won’t go into here , but I find myself looking at old photos from my days out………………and……………….yes I’m looking for inspiration just enough to keep my soul happy until I can back out into the wilds , so here a few of my photos with a few inspirational saying on them , I don’t know who made these up but each one has a special meaning for me , some I will say why others don’t really need any explanation  and I won’t mention the reason, the strange thing is the quotes have been around for years and year , at first they were just words now as I get older and struggle with my mobility they take on a whole new meaning it’s as if finally I am starting to see / understand what the author is  trying to say at the time ….and yes they do help, who knows may be it's an age thing .

Take a moment!  Take a deep breath, think and savour the quotes I rushed passed them for years without realising what they really meant

Perhaps a little bit over the top for me personally …………but sometimes I really do need a reminder that I’m lucky to be here today and I really should make the most of it.

 I DON’T THINK THAT ANY EXPENATION IS NEED FOR THIS ONE!..... IT’S A MANTRA THAT I TRY TO LIVE BY, NOTHING WORSE THAN RUBBISH LEFT OUT IN THE COUNTRYSIDE , OVER THE YEARS IT'S CHANGED FOR SOME WHO TAKE PHOTO'S BUT ARNT PHOTO'S AND MEMORIES THE SAME THING ?
