I’ve been tagged by His Royal Blokeyness in his fun quote challenge! I love this, I’m a big fan of quotes so this is very enjoyable for me. Rory is absolutely the mortar between the bricks of WordPress blogs. He’s such a great blogger himself and he is unfailingly supportive of others. If you need an example of what makes blogging fun then look no further. I don’t know any of my fellow bloggers who don’t admire him.
Here’s what he has to say about this challenge he created.
Everyone loves quotes right? So l figured to introduce a bit of light hearted and simple fun with this game.
Every day l will pick a topic, post 2 quotes and nominate 3 bloggers, who in turn will post 2 quotes on that topic and nominate 3 bloggers of their own and let’s see how far we can take that topic for the day.
Rules: 3.2.1 Quote Me!
• Thank the Selector
• Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day.
• Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘3.2.1 Quote Me’
Today’s Topic is: Celebration if Life”.
I think Rory is a bit of a mind reader as he manages to always tag me in the ones he instinctively knows I’ll particularly enjoy! I am a big believer in making the most of life, even the bad times because, looking back now with the benefit of hindsight, I can see it was those that shaped me far more than the good times.
I have had some very bad health issues, the doctors have been at the point where they said to bring the kids to the hospital to say goodbye to their mum but as you all know, the one challenge I can never resist is making doctors look like twits!!
I’m grateful for the bad as much as the good because honestly – would you know just how flipping fantastic life can be if you hadn’t had to work at it? I’ll plan for tomorrow – but I’ll live today.
My quote choices are:
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride! – Hunter S Thompson
“Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here, we should dance.” – Unknown
The painting is by Jack Vettriano – “Dance Me To The End Of Love”. I’m a big fan of his art.
