Monday Shares

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Andy Griffith - Darlings - There is a Time

Jellyfish DVD: Relaxing Sea Jelly Aquariums with Sea Sounds

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.

It doesn't really matter who you used to be.  What matters the most is who you choose to become.


Love is not automatic.  It takes conscious practice and awareness, just like playing the piano.  However, you have ample opportunities to practice.  Everyone you meet can be your practice session.


Sometimes you need to be alone to find out who you really are and what you really want.


Positivity is one of the most attractive scents you can wear.


If someone has hurt you, take some time to try to understand them - their childhood, their traumas, their mood, etc....don't do this to simply find excuses for them.  Do it to help you to heal - to de-personalize the pain.  When you seek compassion for them, you wind up having more compassion for yourself, too.


There's no need to judge others;  we are more alike than we realize.


Don't count the days...make the days count.


It's okay, if the only thing you did today was to put one foot in front of the next.


Sometimes a delay...is protection.


No matter how obvious something may seem, there are two sides to every story. - Erin Bowman


A helping hand and a positive attitude go further than you know!


Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. - Anais Nin


Meteor shower




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!

  15. Good morning, dear Linda!

    Those Quebec pranksters are at it again, discontinuing a fire rescue when their pizza arrives. That was hilarious! I was very touched to see that motorist stop and help the skunk with its head stuck in cups. He ran the risk of being sprayed but he persisted and got the job done. The world needs more people like him. I remember the bluegrass group The Dillards who appeared as The Darlings on The Andy Griffith Show. Jellyfish are beautiful, graceful creatures. When I was a boy I was once stung by a jellyfish whilst body surfing in the Atlantic Ocean.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  16. Poor skunk, and a thanks to the man who rescued it. We cut all our yogurt containers open before we throw them away--just in case they don't go to the recycle.

  17. really nice fellow that who saved the poor skunk!

  19. "If someone has hurt you" and "There's no need to judge others" both really stood out for me today, Linda.
    There are so many lessons I've learned in your pages...I never cease to be amazed by the depth of wisdom I find here.
    Thank you so much...:)

    Hugs xoxoxo

  20. That is one of the funniest 'gags' I've seen. I laughed out loud! But I'm not sure I'd mess with that skunk. Have you ever tried to get skunk stink out of your clothes. Whew!

  21. Enjoyed each and every video and all the quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  22. El animalito que tubo que ser rescatado seguro fue por ser curioso, pero fue una gran acción por la persona que lo libero.

    Saludos.
