Life is really very simple.  What we give out, we get back.  Every thought we think is creating our future.


You're strong.  You survived living through the main pain of it all.  You will survive the healing time. Things will get better.  Even better than better.


Life's perfect if you let it, sad if you regret it, magic if you meant it...it's all in how you spend it. - Imogen Clark


Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you.


Suppose we stopped gulping fast food and started savoring slow food, grown, cooked, served and eaten with care.




When something bad happens you have three choices.  You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.


When faced with senseless drama, spiteful criticisms and misguided opinions, walking away is the best way to stand up for yourself.  To respond with anger is an endorsement of their attitude. - Dodinsky


Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce.


What the world needs to know is that everything is going to be alright.


One must really have suffered oneself to help others. - Mother Teresa




Behind the scenes of National Geographic


Change your relationship with self-doubt and you will change your mind and be able to access the courage you need to move forward in your dreams.


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

  1. Thanks for the lovely qoutes today, Linda.


    It's always nice to be reminded of thinking positive daily. Here we have a malay proverb that says "sikit-sikit, lama-lama jadi bukit" which translated to "bit by bit, soon will be a hill". Meaning that if we take in things bit by bit, soon it will be a big sum. Same goes for the positive vibes., Everyday read a bit of the good advice then it would accumulate and brightens our life. Thank you for all your good work, Linda

  2. I don't eat fast food at all. I love the farm to table meals, eaten in a relaxed way. The best.

  5. Funny gag, but I feel sorry for the people. THe look of terror on their face when the girl is about to fall in the hole is sometimes hard to watch. ;-)

  6. Funny the theme with National Geographic. I don't usually eat fast food. Maybe souvlaki sometimes, once per month or less. I love vegetables, but i eat meat too!

  7. The smoothie looks delicious, and I never knew maple syrup is healthy!

  8. Bonjour chère Linda,

    Vos gags et vos multiples petits billets me manquaient énormément... Bien que je serai encore un peu absente jusqu'en septembre, je me ferai une joie dès que possible de passer vous faire un petit coucou et de prendre ainsi du plaisir en ouvrant la porte de votre univers.

    Gros bisous à vous

  16. Great quote in Eat Yourself Well. Before I met husband, I used to eat fast food all the time. Now I eat slow food as he likes to cook :-)

  17. I like the lively song "Farewell to Carlingford" and the beautiful scenery in the video. Something to ponder - when something bad happens, do we allow it to define, destroy or to straighten us.

  18. I like the bounce one

  22. I love the "Life is about how well you can bounce" quote. Meanwhile in Canada is a hoot, too.

  23. Ha, ha! I love today's "meanwhile in Canada" photo!

  24. Good morning, dear Linda! The people fooled by the fake blind woman looked absolutely panic stricken when she fell in the hole! I had forgotten all about those Puss 'n Boots cat food commercials. Actually, I thought that one was very well done. The announcer used a chart and gave important nutritional info and a popular celebrity offered a testimonial. Most of today's commercials annoy or offend me. I would love to see a return to this simple, straightforward method. You have a great memory to recall that character actor Charlie Ruggles played Lowell Redlings Farquhar, father-in-law of Milburn Drysdale, on The Beverly Hillbillies. I was astonished to see that underwater fluorescent disco. How beautiful!

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

  25. Behind the scenes of National Geographic is brilliant!

    We don't eat much fast food. We're pretty healthy eaters here.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  27. That coral video was fascinating, Linda! Lots of good things to think about here and a funny Gag to laugh over. I hope that you are having a happy day! Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Your quotes always lift my spirit, Linda. I wish I could see the underwater fluorescence myself. And there is something very weird about the Green Acres song that is sung in French haha.

    Have a beautiful day.

  31. i've never heard the green acres song in french before ... french is such a lovely language, and even though i don't speak it, i love how it sounds in music :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good eating advice Linda. Oh how I loathe so called "fast food" and the junk food that people consume.

    Meanwhile are those guys running away really Canadian? It's just a bear.

    ReplyDelete
  33. My fav really is: " Some talk to you in their free time and some free their time to talk to you." - so true! I consider myself very lucky and happy I got both. I am thankful.
    Just in case you care: I have a tiny diary were I keep positive moments, handwritten. I helps me lots.
