walk and read

October 10th was World Mental Health Day.  I didn't know that until I went down to the water and saw the Dalai Lama's quote on a sign post with a green ribbon.  I then decided to continue walking to see if there were others and there were.  What a great way to celebrate mental health with some good inspiring quotes.  I ended up walking the entire Moville section of the shore walk, got some good exercise for my body and some wonderful quotes to ponder over.  My favorite one is by C.S. Lewis, "Your dream doesn't have an expiration date, take a deep breath and try again."  It reminds me of how we got here.  It was a dream that took us 10 years to achieve but we did it!  What is your favorite quote?

  2. A pleasant way to mark Mental Health Day, though I can't help feeling that those who go out for a walk along the coast are already in a pretty good place - metaphorically and geographically.

    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

  4. I didn't know about this day, either. That makes me depressed! :) Just kidding. This is a great collection of sayings and I'm so glad that you are living your dream. Not too many people get to do that. Re your comment on Ocala: I thought sure I heard someone singing "Damn Yankees"! Heh, heh!

  6. Melanie Young's quote really speaks to me today. As does the Dalai Lama's remark. I didn't know that about that date.

  13. What an inspirational walk! And I can appreciate the long road that took you to Ireland. At times it felt like we'd never get to where we live now in Washington. Lots of deep breaths along the way. A favorite quote of mine is "The more you know the less you need." I don't know who coined that.
