Wednesday Wishes

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

Horses Blowing Bubbles in the Water

The Scariest Water Slides in the World

The Message in a Bottle - Donna Douglas (1962)
This is not the Donna Douglas who played the role of Elly Mae in The Beverly Hillbillies.  This Donna Douglas is Irish.  Enjoy!  :)

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.

Never respond to rudeness.  When others are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are. Don't take it personally, it is best to be silent.

You are responsible for your own happiness.  If you expect others to make you happy, you will always be disappointed.

One of the happiest moments in life is when you find the courage to let go of what you can't change.

Your vibe attracts your tribe.

I admire people who choose to shine even after all the storms they have been through.

Smile and silence are two powerful tools.  Smile is the way to solve many problems.  Silence is the way to avoid many problems.

We sometimes miss the open windows trying to bang down locked doors.

Anger is an energy like any other.  Let it flow through you without judgment and without taking it out on others.

Time spent with cats is never wasted. - Sigmund Freud

The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts. - James Joyce

Appreciate the simple little things.  Life is precious.

Shhh...there's wisdom whispering within you.

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!

    No, thanks...those water slides. They had one in Singapore a long time ago, the Big Splash they called it...and there were stories about ladies in bikinis...and how their tops came off in the big splash! LOL!!!

  2. I might try some of those slides, but definitely not the one in Brasil! The horsies in water was also cute. And time spent with cats is never wasted - that's true!
    Hope you are having a nice week, Linda!

  3. Hey Linda. Wishing you a great day.

    Horses Blowing Bubbles, is special to see Linda. I wish you a happy Wednesday.

  5. Cooooool videos!!! I want to try those water slides and swim with those horses. FanTiddytastic! Thank you for posting them on your blog.Tiddy x

  6. A great post Linda. There is always something which just jumps out at me and think simple but oh so powerful!

  7. The horses knows how to enjoy soaking and having fun in the water. Oh! These water slides? I will never dare try any one of this, even the simplest one. So scary! I like the quote about how to respond to rudeness.

  8. Hi Linda--great quotes on anger and letting go---something that I obviously need to practise a bit more! Have a great day

  9. Love this post especially the anger quote.

    Ha ha... Denis don't leave so quickly!

  11. What great things to look at this morning. Have missed you since I've been on vacation! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. coucou ici avec du ciel gris mais pas de pluie ce jour

  13. Yes, we are responsible for our own happiness.

  14. happy Wednesday sweet friend.

  15. Very uplifting collection. Loved the videos, especially the horses (watched it twice). This is the perfect start to my day. Thank you, Linda!

  16. Good morning, dear Linda! I love your animal videos and appreciated the one showing horses relaxing in a farm pond and blowing bubbles. Being submerged in that cool water must have felt very good to those hay burners. Thrill rides are big business. Let's just hope the engineers maintain the highest safety standards in their quest to build the biggest, tallest and scariest rides and slides. I enjoyed the lovely voice of the Irish Donna Douglas. The Elly Mae Donna Douglas also did some singing, mainly gospel.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  17. j'aime en particulier " smile and silence " Linda

    have a nice day

  18. The horse video was cute! And I liked today's selection of quotes.

  19. Coucou Linda,
    OUF... Les glissantes d'eau font vraiment peurs!! Je ne suis pas certaine que je m'y aventurais hi! hi!



  20. I enjoyed all the videos the one of Donna Douglas singing was so cute. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  21. the tribe one is true. I fought against my vibe for most of my life thinking that I should fit in, never being told that there are others like me that I fit in with already. Once I realized that my life took on a whole new meaning and depth. It is a shame we don't help more young people realize this..

  22. Daily dose of inspiration and great mood))) priceless

    xoxo, Juliana | PJ’ Happies :)

  23. Loved the gag as always.

    Oh those horses. So precious.

    The water slides. I'll pass okay.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  24. Freud was right about time not wasted!

  25. Very good gag, Linda !

  26. Thank you Linda. I'm taking away your advice about a smile and silence today.

  27. Holy cow (or horse) I can't believe how deep those horses were int he water!

    So many good quotables today, thank you. Vibe tribe, silent fox, letting go, and anger flow are so helpful to me.

    Thank you!

  28. Keep posting your wonderful inspirational posts I love both the "Never respond to rudeness" and "You are responsible for your own happiness".

  29. I used to love water slides. The last time I went on one, about 3 years ago will indeed be the last. Getting too old for that sort of fun.

  30. don't have much time now - i'll be back for some of those videos - they look interesting and by the way i love your blog - so positive and happy - and your quotes you post and the art....but need to get school clothes shopping done. see ya later.

  31. Quel beau moment douceur! Bise et bonne soirée dans la joie!

  32. Never knew Frued was a cat person

  34. Some great quotes today Linda. Keep your Montreal list of places to visit/ eat at running for me!

  35. "I admire people who chose to shine even after all the storms they have been through." How beautiful is that!
    I came by to visit with you earlier today and tried leaving a comment three times, but for some reason I kept deleting my own comment.
    Oooh silly me :-) I'm back and was successful, I'm doing the happy dance!
    It's always nice to visit and be inspired with the treasures you share.
    Bless you~ Debbie

    The horse video was interesting. I'd never seen that behavior in horses before. It must have been very hot and/or very buggy where they were.

    Linda...the previous Anonymous comment was from Linda at To Behold the Beauty.

  38. I had no idea that horses blew bubbles in the water ~ just like kids in a bathtub! So many wise words in this post; but most important is "Life is precious." We simply can't take this miracle of life for granted. It can be gone in a heartbeat. And it's important to laugh, which is why I love those ridiculous gags, and the laughter when people figure out they've been had. Thanks so much for always bringing inspiration and happiness to me every day, dear Linda!

  39. Haha...those water slides!!
    I sampled on once...and scared myself half to death.
    Needless to say, I haven't dared go near one since!! lol

    Oh absolutely..."Life is Precious"...I am learning that one right now...:)

    Thank you so much for another fabulous post. xoxoxo

  40. So cool! Love it!
    Have a wonderful week :*
