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

Stunning Lady Gouldian Finches Feeding

Vintage 1963 Canada Dry Soda Commercial

How Meditation can Help Heal Depression

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.

Today, I will choose joy.

Extra! Extra! Adding one cup of gratitude sweetened with a spoonful of kindness at the start of every morning, has shown evidence of increased positivity!!!  Side effects may include: (but not limited to) a change in attitude, spontaneous burst of laughter, an aura of love and light, happiness in abundance.  May make your mind, heart and soul feel good!

I still have a long way to go, but I'm already so far from where I used to be and I'm proud of that.

If we would just slow down, happiness would catch up to us. - Richard Carlson

I let go of the past, embrace the present, and joyfully look forward to the future!

You should never have to convince someone into loving you and wanting to be with you.  You deserve someone who can easily see what's special in you.

Nothing is more important than this very moment, because in this very moment you are here.

Every thought you put out into the world, puts out a vibration.  Do not be sloppy with your thoughts!

Give of yourself to others.  You are the greatest gift.

Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly. - Tony Robbins

It's my time to blossom...and I'm blooming ready!

Sorry, they didn't have rain boots in your size. It's not about the boots.

Life has no remote.  Get up and change it yourself.

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. I liked your Thursday thoughts.

  2. I had to chuckle over your "meanwhile in Canada" with the bear, too cute!
    The bear looks like our little"yogi" bear that hung out with us last year. He was young and constantly looking for things to do in our yard.

    Bless you~~ Debbie

  3. I LOVE all those colorful birds. It's so amazing to see them out in nature. I guess that video must be from Australia or somewhere. :)

  4. Love that Inspire Positive Soul Sensations quotation, top that up with faith, hope and charity.

    Ha ha... the last lady was so quick to react!

  10. Those finches were so unique! Never seen those before
    Have a good day, Linda

  11. Great gag, Linda !

  12. A great post, I particularly like the 'life has no remote' piece!

  13. Linda - have tried leaving a comment from my mobile phone but for some reason I am unable. Just wanted you to know I enjoyed the Darlings on Monday from Andy Griffith. Such a delight to hear them. Your quotes today are especially just what I needed. Love the one about slowing down so happiness can catch up...sounds good to me. Love Lori Seibert's art. Going to check out her web. Hope you have a wonderful day friend. Hugs!

  14. Divertido gag y bonitos vídeos.

  15. Coucou Linda,
    J'aime beaucoup le vidéo des oiseaux, ils sont tellement beaux!!



  16. Good morning, dear Linda!

    It was hilarious to see the shock and terror on the faces of those adults as that boy disappeared beneath the surface of a mud puddle on their watch. I never saw such beautiful finches as these. As I told you before, I once owned a series of zebra finches. They are dear little birds and the ones you showed us today, the Gouldians, must surely be the most brightly colored finches of all. Isn't it jarring to watch TV commercial's produced in the 1950s and early 60s? The man and woman at the dance were nicely dressed and behaved in a dignified manner. The voice-over announcer delivered his message in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner. I miss those days!

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  17. The "meanwhile in Canada" made me laugh!

  18. Dear Linda,

    Every post of yours is a great travel to the land of your emotions.

    Warm greetings from Hellas.
    Yannis Politopoulos

  19. A funny gag video. Enjoyed the other videos. Great quotes. Have a blessed and peaceful day. Madeline

  20. I do adore your affirmations, I quite often send them on to friends who could use them.

  21. You made my day! Thank you, Linda!

  22. Wow, those finches are so colourful!

  23. Loved the gag. I would have been beside myself.

    Loved the Canada Dry Soda Commercial. Those old commercials are so dated now.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  24. Hi Linda, I have never seen such stunning Lady Gouldian Finches before. Very colourful birds! Love all the very encouraging, positive and meaningful quotes.

  25. You've outdone yourself today, many wonderful quotes and sayings...I especially like the one about still a ways to go, but...

    And those finches! Marvelous colors!

    Have a great day!

  26. "Life has no remote" - that's a good one Linda. Do I need to tell you which is my favourite creature? I don't think it will win though.

    1. Hi Phil, thanks so much for your kind comment, and for your vote in my poll. You do not need to tell me at all! :)

  27. Joy is a good thing to choose.

  28. Canada dry !!! I remember when I was a kid and first try this new soda it was a great time, enjoy your Thiursday Linda

  29. Bonjour Linda, qu'ils sont beaux ces petits oiseaux, magnifiques! Bise et bon jeudi tout en douceur!

  30. Hoping all is well on your end of the earth. Cheers and boogie boogie.

  31. Loved the gag, Linda! And those birds were so beautiful...they didn't look real!

  32. Okay... convinced - I'm going to serve myself up a cup of gratitude this morning. ;-)

  33. Love how the smiles turn to terror on the JFL gag!

  34. Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly... totally agre with Tony Robbins..! :D

  35. Great thought about changing your life-and you do not need batteries:))

  36. Thought I would actually pop by today & see what you've been up too. May I just say that first video with the kid jumping into the hole was hilarious! Those birds were so pretty and colorful. - I enjoyed stopping by. Hope to do so a little more often.
