Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

The videos I have selected for this post are:

Visit Denmark

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

The kinder you are, the kinder we all are.


I make a choice to see the good in the world.  My choice is to notice the beauty, love and total magnificence in each day.  My focus is on these things because I know that when I do this, I am actually creating more good in the world.


Breathe...you're going to be okay.  Breathe and remember you've been in this place before.  You've been this uncomfortable, anxious and scared, but you've survived.  Breathe and know that you can survive this too.  These feelings can't break you. This too shall pass.


Those who dwell among the beauty and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. - Rachel Carson


Quick reminder!  Slow down!  Enjoy the moments in your day.  These moments are your life.


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. - C.S. Lewis












Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  6. Yes, what goes around comes around. To some, it's only money...but generous gestures as such sure go a long long away. Reach out and touch, try a little kindness...whenever and wherever we can.

  12. Good morning, dear Linda! I love stories about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It seems like more people than ever are experiencing the joy that comes from paying it forward. I hope the spirit goes viral and many more people join in and help others in need. The video about the German Shepherd and the kittens was heartwarming. Dogs can be taught to attack and kill. They can also be taught to be gentle and loving. It is the same with human children.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  17. the kinder you are, the kinder we all are --- that's true! i encountered a few very unkind people this week, but a few very kind people elsewhere too --- so it was interesting to compare the difference, and to realise that i should strive to be one of the kind people too :)

  30. Good afternoon Linda. I was gone this morning but as soon as got home I got into your blog. I first took your poll. Good idea. I might also do it but I have to wait until a few more people commenting on my blog.
    " Quick reminder! Slow down! Enjoy the moments in your day. These moments are your life." I totally agree.
    Have a great day my friend. See ya.

  37. Hard to pick, I like it all, but I'm partial to the cartoons/comic side of things. Though I also love when you write personal stuff, for me, personal blogs win out over everything else.
