Mellow Monday and a New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have once again added a new poll!  This time I am asking if you enjoy these polls.  Your response is valuable to me and anonymous, even I don't know what your response is unless you choose to share it, so please don't be shy, let me know!  You can always find my polls on the upper right hand column of my blog, just below the translator!  Thank you so much for your responses to my polls and for your kind comments on my blog, I really appreciate you all!  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

How to Tell the Difference Between a Goose and a Gander

Soundies - Lullaby of Broadway

Princess Diana - Take a Look Inside Diana Princess of Wales' Apartment Home at Kensington Palace (just to let you know that this video is 6-7 minutes in length, longer than the videos of 4 minutes or less that I share).

Great Attitude - An Inspirational Video

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.

Government should protect people and regulate corporations, not protect corporations and regulate people.

When you trust in yourself, you trust in the very wisdom that created you. - Wayne Dyer

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. - Anatole France

Everything will be okay...just in case you're feeling a little boo.

Hold your head high...unless you're admiring your shoes.

I don't know how people can fake whole relationships.  I can't even fake a hello to somebody I don't like.  (I don't agree with this, because I often say hello to people I don't like.  You don't have to like someone to be polite, civil and kind).  :)

There must come a point when your love your yourself is more important than your need to hold onto the past.

When feeling overwhelmed by a far away goal, repeat the following:  I have it within me right now, to get me to where I want to be later.

Behind every successful man or woman there are many unsuccessful years. - Bob Brown

I did not come this far only to come this far.

Stop beating yourself up.  And stop beating yourself up for beating yourself up.  And stop beating yourself up for beating yourself up for beating yourself up. Sheesh!

Some people think I am unhappy, but I am not. I just appreciate silence in a world that never stops talking.

Sign says:  "Sidewalk Ends".  Captain Obvious strikes again... :)

You are what you do, not what you say you'll do. - Carl Jung

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!

    Merci pour ce beau post

    J'aime beaucoup "Lessons Taught by Life"

    Bonne journée et GROS BISOUS à toi Linda

  2. Wonderful post, have a great week:)

  3. Good morning, dear Linda! I laughed out loud at the gag video. It reminds us of the common fear of public speaking and nightmares people tend to have about finding themselves thrust on stage with no prepared script. It was fun to watch some of the clowns improvise and actually entertain the children. I enjoyed learning how to tell a goose from a gander. The city where our house is located has many lakes and geese inhabit their banks. Several lakes have bike paths and walkways for people. I have seen protective ganders charge at people and dogs. It was amazing and educational to tour the large, luxurious Kensington Palace. I also enjoyed seeing the work of those street artists.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  4. I enjoy these posts of yours, Linda. They are just wonderful. Have a nice week!

  5. Nice gag, Linda !

  6. well said on "Some people think I am unhappy, but I am not. I just appreciate silence in a world that never stops talking".

    As for "Government should protect people and regulate corporations, not protect corporations and regulate people."... over here it seems to be protecting itself instead. How I wish there are more selfless politician out there

    Ha ha... Kids behave! ;)

  8. I thoroughly agree with the Wake up World sentiment. It seems our society has become focused on the wrong things in the past few decades. Let's hope things change.
    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you! Gros bisous!!!

  9. Love that video clip on attitude.
