Saturday Soul Shine

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

Raising Blue Swedish Ducks

How to Pack Clothes for Traveling

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.

Spend time with people who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you.


Focus more on the people who inspire you, not the people who annoy you.


Life is too short to stress out over people who don't deserve room in your heart.


Each day you only have a limited amount of time and energy.  Don't waste it stressing about things you cannot control.


Decide how you want to feel.  Connected. Joyful. Fully alive. Abundant. Loved. Purposeful. Motivated. Supported. Motivated. Beautiful. Wise.


Love yourself, respect yourself.  Never sell yourself short.  Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think.  You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it.


We're so distracted regretting what has already passed or stressing about what may never come...that we overlook the priceless goodness present in our lives this very moment.  What a delight it is to breathe the air, to see the sky, to touch the grass, to hear the birds sing, to taste a juicy fruit.


It's okay to move at your own pace.


Be grateful you have a safe, secure place to sleep tonight.  Some people don't have that luxury.

In case of fire break glass.


Live one day at a time.  Keep your attention in present time.  Have no expectations.  Make no judgements.  And give up the need to know why things happen as they do.  Give it up!


We're never coming here again. (the sign says "Now ignoring #22)  :)


Awww, nuts!  :)




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!
