For my final day of this tag, I’ve chosen a lyric from Moulin Rouge, one of my favourite musicals. This quote means a lot to me because I truly believe that the meaning of life is in the relationships we have with others. I took the picture below in Cascais, Portugal, and I think it really supports the meaning of this quote. The people look so tiny and insignificant in a huge landscape but they are all spending time together enjoying each other’s company – echoing the fact that we are all tiiiiiiny specks in the great wide universe, but we matter because of who we are to each other. WOW THAT TOOK A DEEP TURN, sorry guys… It’s a blimming quote challenge, not a philosophical essay, steady on Francesca!
Now, I am aware that some of the people reading this blog struggle with mental health issues like mine, and I am a little anxious that this quote might bring on a spiral of negative self-talk. I certainly have days where a quote such as this could send me into a huge slump because my depression tells me that “no-one loves YOU in return, you disgusting freak”. So I just want to say, even if you feel like no-one loves you or appreciates you, MY life is all the better for having you in it, even if only on a screen. I am one person who loves and values you 100%, so you can rest assured that this quote is for you as well as everyone else.
My nominees for today are:
All my love,
