Mellow Monday

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

People Laughing without a Reason in a Subway

What is Depression?

What is Depression?


Monterey Sea Otter


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.

Accept responsibility for your life.  Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. - Les Brown


Keep out of doors as much as you can and see all you can of nature.  She has the most wonderful exhibition.  Always open and always free. - A.A. Milne


Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive. - Hafiz


Be patient.  Some things take time.


Keep hope in your mind, love in your heart and faith in your soul. - Joelle


Stay open to growing your woul a little more...every day! - Sherri Bishop


Life was so different this time last year.


The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for.  And the most you can do is live inside that hope.  Not admire it from a distance. Live right in hope, under its roof. - Barbara Kingsilver


If you love a flower, don't pick it up.  Because if you pick it up, it dies and ceases to be what you love, so if you love a flower, let it be.  Love is not about possession.  Love is about appreciation.


There are things that might get bigger with age...just make sure one of them is your sass!  


Appreciate the people that make you smile.


Letting go helps us to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance.  It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. This frees us from unnecessary stress. - Melody Beattie






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!

  15. The item about laughing without a reason brought back some fun memories...when I taught school I would sometimes start laughing, softly at first, then louder and louder and finally uproariously. The kids had no idea what was going on but pretty soon they were all laughing, too! Great fun!

  23. Selon Bergson, le rire est le propre de l'homme. Comme il avait raison,mais pourquoi donc, notre société fait tant la gueule ?
    Il serait bon de retrouver le chemin du rire qui peut sortir de bien des situations dramatiques. Allez...on s'y met tous.
    Amitiés.

  29. Laughing is contagious. I have a friend here - he only sings one sing ever since the 70s when we were in college - The Laughing Song. And everytime he sings, everyone will be laughing along even though there is nothing funny in the lyrics.

  37. Hi Linda, I hope you're doing well. Thanks for the information about depression.

  38. Oh wow, Linda...that quote about picking the flower really moved me...it is SO true!
    Being possessive smothers and kills what we love best, doesn't it.
    So heart-warming to see those people laughing...it really is the best medicine! :)
