You are never too old to set another goal or a dream.


The fear I'm feeling in anticipation actually tells me I'm asking the right questions and I'm on the right track.


Please watch your heart by making sure it doesn't absorb the judgments and negativity of those who don't appreciate you.


If you carry the bricks from your past relationship, you'll end up building the same house.


Please don't judge people.  You don't know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel as presentable as possible and face the day.  You never truly know the daily struggles of others.


The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. - Henry Ward Beecher


I still remember the days I prayed for the things I have now.


Don't just do what you can to forgive the person who hurt you, forgive yourself too.  Stop blaming yourself for not being enough.  Stop blaming yourself for your inability to predict pain.  Learn what you can and leave the pain behind.


No bird can fly without opening its wings.  And no one can love without opening their heart.


food for thought






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!

  4. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I laughed at the virtual boxing game fail. The stuntman/security guard took a nasty tumble each time and the prank victims were horrified. The red-lipped batfish is one of the strangest sea creatures I have ever seen. He looks like he's wearing red lipstick and wagging his tail! I also enjoyed watching the orange fish mimicking a harmless sponge and using a lure line to catch its prey. Before we were married, Mrs Shady often attended folk dancing classes with our niece. I will show her the video of the German dancers. It amazed me to watch that tutorial on gift wrapping. I'm afraid the presents I wrap rarely turn out that well. I enjoyed watching the little mole like creature the Tenrec but I needed to turn off the loud piano music. I wish the video was accompanied by natural sound and not music.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  32. The woman in the gift wrapping video needs some close-ups! Seriously--that's definitely a case when a camera person with some zooming skill would have come in handy!

  42. It's hard to transform someone through love at the beginning, but love drives out fear and everything. :) so, someday, everything will fall into its place.

  43. That folk dance reminds me of when we learned "bush dancing" as a child in school. I bet they don't do that anymore in the curriculum.
