Thursday Thoughts

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

Humor Your Stress with Loretta Laroche (clip 1)

Humor Your Stress with Loretta Laroche (clip 2)

Man-Pleasing Meatloaf Recipe (easy, moist and flavorful)

Prehensile-tailed Porcupine

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's okay to start over.  It's okay to rebuild.  It's okay to be scared.


Sometimes I forget to thank the people who make my life happy and tell them how much I really do appreciate them for being an important part of my life.  So thank you, all of you, just for being here with me.


Don't let the fear of your challenges overwhelm you. Face towards your challenges head on.  You're stronger than you realize.  Plus your challenges will help you to strengthen your emotional muscles in new, exciting ways.


When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the fire department usually uses water.


When you focus on problems, you'll have more problems.  When you focus on possibilities, you'll have more opportunities.


Love more and worry less.




I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it. - Vincent Van Gogh


Feeling guilty that you got angry is adding another rock on top of the anger.  Take a breath, observe the anger, accept it, let it go...you'll do better next time.


Hang your worries out to dry.






I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.


Naked and unafraid!


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!

  19. Good morning, dear Linda! If somebody on the street asked me to take over the controls of a huge crane, I would immediately start looking for the hidden camera! :) I loved the educational piece about the young porcupine born in captivity. If humans handle the animal gently and correctly, they can avoid being pricked. It makes me sad to know that the most feared predator on the planet is man, not beast.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  43. Did you hear about the huge python that swallowed a porcupine? The porcupine's quills ruptured internal organs and died...it was on the news not too long ago and I was very fascinated by it. Nice quotes and amazing arts!
