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

Underwater Tennis Court off the Coast of Dubai

The Difference between Optimistic and Pessimistic People

How to Swim with your Elephant

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.

Your body is a brilliant machine that deserves far better than what marketers want to shove in it.


When life gets stormy and hope is nowhere to be found, don't wait around for the sun to come out tomorrow, look in the mirror.  The sunshine is in your heart now.  Shine your own light and make your own rainbow today.


Anxiety happens when you think you have to figure out everything all at once.  Breathe.  You're strong. You got this.  Take it day by day.


What is achievable in your life...is based on the stories you tell yourself.


Only grow thoughts in your brain that you would not mind putting in a vase.


Life is short.  Stop worrying about what might happen.  Live in the moment.  Follow your heart. Be with good people.  Forget what hurt you - but never forget what it taught you.


Grab a piece of paper and a pencil for a moment and alertly look at a flower, slowly sketch it on paper (don't worry if it doesn't look perfect), just focus on describing it through your doodle...notice that in that moment you aren't thinking about the past or future, or any problems, and peace is possible while you draw the flower.


May you dream of lovely things and wake up to find them real.  Good night.


You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. - Wayne Dyer


Hey you - yes, the one reading this.  I just wanted to wish you good health and happiness and thank you for being a part of my life.  Have a great day.

  6. Hi Linda, the underwater tennis court looks awesome but I don't know whether I will be watching the underwater creatures or the tennis game. Beautiful quote about not be lonely if we like the person we are alone with!

  15. Hi, dear Linda! Dubai seems to have everything and wants even more. It would be nice if a fraction of the money required to built an underwater tennis court was used to feed the hungry people of world and clothe and house the poor. The lesson about the differences between an optimist and a pessimist is a valuable one. The world reacts favorably to positive, enthusiastic people. If pessimists realized how easy it is to make your own good luck they would surely try to become more optimistic in their approach to life. It warmed my heart to see the man who has bonded with elephants and goes swimming with them. Some people would rather shoot those majestic beasts. He and I would rather give them a great big hug.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  18. That last cat pic is especially good...Heidi Shaulis has captured perfectly the essence of the feline...that aura of untouchability...that notion that nothing and nobody comes close to the cat's superiority over other beings! I mean, I get weak in the knees when my cat allows me to pet her!

    I'm an optimistic person. I'm happy about that.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺
