Cheerful Tuesday & More about Myself

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

What's the difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone?  The way you approach it.

Let the opportunities of today wipe away the failures of yesterday.

I have been told that I am very observant.  I tend to notice things around me and in people that others sometimes miss.  I am always looking for the beauty around me, both in things and in people.  I am easy to please in that it doesn't take much to make me happy.  I think that over the years I have learned that happiness must come from within, and not have to depend on things or people.  If we are happy with little and appreciate the small things in life, life becomes more beautiful.  Well, this is how I see it. Thank you for listening.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

  1. I love lavender! And I like oats, too. But I think today the bee plants are my favorite!

  2. My daughter has tried to convince me that we should not dig out the dandelions in the front yard because it is good for bees. ;-)

  9. Ha ha... Now I want a toy car like that!

  10. Yes, life is so fact paced...and many miss so much along the way. We do need to "stop and smell the roses", stop a while to see the beauty and appreciate God's creations all around us...and we will feel that it is indeed a wonderful world, after all.

  13. Great words of wisdome form you Linda followed by a great post!

  14. i agree with your perspective on life and contentment ... i guess this sort of sentiment comes as we grow older and hopefully wiser, and we discard some of the ideas of our youth and learn what's really important for a fulfilling life :)

  15. I love your philosophy, I have started a mindfulness course and think it is a marvelous way to help people appreciate the here and now and every small thing that is good in their lives.

  16. Hi Linda, Today I really enjoyed your first link photo ... "Happiness is not determinded by what's happening around you, but rather what's happening inside you." So true and, I think, another way of saying what you mentioned in your opening. Excellent! Have a fine day!

  17. Good morning, dear Linda! I have stated this before. You and I are much alike. I prefer to search for the beauty in the world rather than go looking for trouble. Some people have a long list of conditions or requirements for what it takes to experience happiness. I find that the simplest things make me happy. I've heard that the avocado is one of the healthiest foods you can eat and Mrs. Shady and I enjoy them. I will give her this recipe today.

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Linda!

  18. That Farmer's Tan is a tad different than the real farmers around my area. Funny though. Also, I enjoyed reading more about you.

  19. Bonjour Linda,

    Bisous ☀ ツ

  25. That is so spot on true, dear Linda. Life will always through obstacles in your path. It's whether or not you let them knock you off your feet in the moment or for the long haul that determines how you keep going. Thank you for starting this great post with another wise reminder.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

  26. Good morning Linda. Once again I enjoyed the laugh about the police car and the boy. I have to go now. I going for my physiotherapy on my ankle. I hope it works because this pain is driving me nuts. Oh well, that's life. Have a wonderful Tuesday and I hope that the sun is out today. See ya.

  27. Hi Linda,
    I also think that the little things in life you
    should appreciate and happiness comes from within.
    Given in lavender cotton bag, are a scent source for each
    Wardrobe.
    Nice Day.

  47. So much fun! Thank you for visiting me so I could find you. I'll be back, I'm following you on Bloglovin.

  48. You are so right Linda, in that happiness comes from within.
    I really believe it's all about attitude. When you go through things with a smile on your face and joy in your heart with thanksgiving, things don't seem so hard, but with a frown and ungratefulnes,misery comes with it.

    I enjoyed learning more about you. :)
    Bless you~ Debbie
