Soothing Sunday

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

How to Pack a Suitcase Efficiently

Dog vs Swan in Strasbourg

Stressbusters with Loretta Laroche

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.

Daily rules to live by:  Wake up;  be thankful;  try new things;  help others;  trust yourself;  worry less; keep going;  love unconditionally;  dream big.


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


Stressed:  Read this now!  Pause.  Inhale.  Exhale. Remember who you are at your core.  Remember times you've overcome past challenges.  Know you're never given anything you cannot handle.  Focus 20 percent on the problem and 80 percent on the solution.  Think in terms of "small steps" which you can take to move forward.


I wish, oh how I wish, that I could take away all your pain.


Be patient and tough.  Some day this pain will be useful to you.


Each morning, bless the day that is opening up before you.  It is offering every possibility for giving a new direction to your life.


If your happiness depends on somebody else being reasonable, you're in trouble.


Well, honk to you too.  I'm not moving.  :)


Not every day will be wonderful.  Not every day will you feel good.  Not every day will be filled with ease and joy.  But remember, it is only one day.  Feel it. Live it.  Learn from it.  Do not get stuck in that one day.  Let go and move on.  The next day, start again. You can do it.  You are stronger than you think!


Gratitude turns what we have into enough.


I love those people who can make me laugh during those moments when I feel like I can't even smile.


Let your past make you better, not bitter.


Aww, nuts!  :)




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!

  2. Hello Linda!:) Your last clip made me smile, a funny lady, and the picture of the goose also was fun. The suit case tips are great, not that I go anywhere where I need to pack one, but I can now pass these tips on. Hope you are well, and have a great day Linda.:)

  4. Ha ha..I would have fallen off the bench in the 1st video clip! I wouldn't be able to pack like the 2nd video and oh my goodness! the swan was really fierce and brave!

  5. Stressed? Go for desserts, they say - it's the word spelt backwards. What a coincidence!

  15. Great videos and quotes again today. Pretty artwork too. The swan was formidable. I read once one swipe of a wing can break your arm. Not to be messed with but my goodness, they are such noble looking birds.

  18. Great packing tips, although I'll never learn to fold a shirt like that. We have enough Canada geese here that I totally relate to the "I'm not moving" picture.

  19. Love the gag! That pink thing would be a surprise for sure. I know how to pack a suitcase, though. Throw it on the bed and throw stuff in it, zip it up and take off. Swans can be really nasty birds...I'd keep my distance. So can geese, come to think of it. I've been chased and bitten by geese! :)

  28. Linda,
    That little duck is sweet just sitting there in the road, and I love the quote attached to it, "well, honk to you too." I appreciated the "gratitude" quote also. I read one time that grateful people are the happiest people, and I think this is true. Thank you for being such a grateful person.

    Have a peaceful Sunday.

  40. After living overseas for nearly 20 years, the way I pack my suitcase has changed dramatically. I remember the days when I used to traipse across the globe with 2 cases of 32 kg each! Now it's a carry-on, and sometimes a 15kg check in. Oh how times have changed. :-)

    ReplyDelete
