“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?
“Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.” Corita Kent
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!
