1. Wow – these are brilliant for a phone camera. I think it's important to remember that if we give up to defeat we shouldn't beat ourselves up about it. We need to be kind and gentle with ourselves and accept ourselves as we are 🙂

  2. What a thought provoking thought!

    Your photos are amazing – makes me want to jump into the worlds you captured.

  3. i go thru those moments of giving up, tho! but i've kept at it for many years, and am sure i will continue to do so…

  4. Lovely quote!! No giving up here… plodding along and dragging 8 great ladies with me.

  5. I've been feeling defeated by all the clean up, purging, and record keeping I need to get done. Sometimes I'm ready to give up — for example, today. Thanks for reminding me I can keep going.

  6. That first photo with the umbrellas I adore. Defeat vs. Giving Up. Thanks for those thoughts to ponder.
