Weekly Photo Challenge: BOUNDARIES

02/10/2015

“Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others.” Brene Brown

I think it’s important to keep your personal life to yourself as much as you can. It protects your sanity and you need to have boundaries. And it helps that enchantment of watching an actor. If you know someone’s favourite colour or what they like to do on a Sunday, you won’t fall for the character as much. Dianna Agron

Weekly Photo Challenge: BOUNDARIES Boundaries exist to keep things in/out and contained. They exist everywhere; we have mountains, bodies of water, rock formations and all types of natural boundaries. Then we have bridges, fences, walls and other man made boundaries. They all serve a purpose that can help us or hurt us. Like everything in life, we can use our boundaries to control our urges and uplift others or we can exploit them for selfish and harmful reasons. Come back later for a MESH selection.

“Boundaries are to protect life, not to limit pleasures.” Edwin Louis Cole

And this is one of the major questions of our lives: how we keep boundaries, what permission we have to cross boundaries, and how we do so. A. B. Yehoshua
Our computers have become windows through which we can gaze upon a world that is virtually without horizons or boundaries. Joseph B. Wirthlin

I love Edwin Cole’s quote above because it reminds us of the value of setting personal boundaries and respecting existing boundaries. In a world where there are those who focus on their own selfish or sick desires, we need even more reminders that boundaries protect life and that is imperative. What do you think?

People truly reaching across boundaries – be they religious or race, political or geographic. A state that is sincerely civil and respectful of each individual’s pathway toward life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be our goal. Jon Huntsman, Jr.

We need to spend time reflecting on the violence in our world and how we can heal and create healthy boundaries that protect and help people. My heart felt condolences go out to the families of those lost and hurt in Oregon. I wish all a restful and peaceful weekend. Enjoy the photos and hug your loved ones. Have a Happy Weekend!

My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme – BOUNDARIES – below.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: BOUNDARIES –   This week, let’s explore the creative potential of limits, borders, and dividers of all types. Share your take on “boundaries” — please feel free to interpret the theme as literally (or not) as you see fit. I look forward to browsing through your photos!

 

Positive Motivation Tip: Boundaries help us set and see important limits that can save lives. Honor them.

    nice photos to compliment another good post. Boundaries is synonymous with limitations. It is Nature’s way to say ” This is all you can do or go”.

    I love the quote about Boundaries being a protector of life and not to limit pleasures. It’s just seeing things in a positive way rather than feeling negative about things all the time.

    The Taconic Highway picture is absolutely beautiful. I agree we all need to stand-up to create healthy boundaries to protect & help people, after all humanity is all about helping each other.

    Different people react to boundaries differently. Some want to challenge and go beyond, some kept to it, some avoid it. All these reaction also tells us the personality of these people

    I like how landscape artists can manage to make fences look good with the view. If not only for safety issues, I like fences where you can see inside. – Fred

    It’s sometimes hard to set boundaries when you blog. Obviously, you don’t want to share everything, but you also want to be honest.

      I believe we should be honest with our writing and only write things we can discuss honestly. That said, I feel that we don’t have to write about everything. So, some topics are just not discussed because to talk about them means crossing a boundary that affects others… I just don’t write about certain topics.

    Boundaries are definitely important. I think in this day and age of social media, people easily forget that.
