Anti-bullying lessons aren't enough.  We can't just teach what NOT to do, we must teach what TO do.
Kindness.  Empathy.  Compassion.  Character. Service learning.  Mindfulness.  Forgiveness. Optimism.  Gratitude.  These are the lessons that will make the world a better place.

Life as taught me that you can't control someone's loyalty.  No matter how good you are to them, doesn't mean they'll treat you the same.  No matter how much they mean to you, doesn't mean they'll value you the same.  Sometimes the people you love the most turn out to be the people that you can trust the least. - Trent Shelton

It isn't the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it.

I found the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.

Welcome to Canada.  May you enjoy peace, prosperity and plenty of poutine.  :)

If you know me based on who I was a year ago, you don't know me at all.  My growth game is strong. Allow me to reintroduce myself.

Some of the most beautiful dances come from those who have weathered storms and have learned to dance again.  So no matter on!

Beauty is about living your life and being happy with yourself inside and out, and not worrying about what people think of you.

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: "I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.  I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.  I have just one day today and I am going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx

Life isn't about getting and having, it's about giving and being. - Kevin Kruse

Your first purpose on earth is to love others. Everything else is secondary.

Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits right into this empty place in your heart.

Words of Pawsitivity - Happiness is a choice, and it's free. - Roy H. Williams

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!

    MERCI pour cette jolie publication

    BISES et bonne journée

  2. i would love to have a soundproof room too, so that i can turn the sound up when i'm watching an adventure movie :)

  3. Indeed! As the proverb says, "Never look at a gift horse in its mouth!" :)

  4. Linda, this is my favourite for today - Life as taught me that you can't control someone's loyalty. No matter how good you are to them, doesn't mean they'll treat you the same. No matter how much they mean to you, doesn't mean they'll value you the same. Sometimes the people you love the most turn out to be the people that you can trust the least. - Trent Shelton

    Hahahaha ... Mr.Bean is fun again, and I really like Quiche.

  6. Hello Linda,
    Nice post. That movie of Mr Bean is so nice. It's old but when I see it again I must laughing. Big fun!!

    Sweet greetings,

  7. I've always liked Mr. Bean since I started watching his videos. Thanks for sharing this! :)

    Have a great day! :)

  8. Good morning, the Mr Bean video was funny. I usually wake up before the alarm goes off. Wonderful wise words and quotes. Thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

  9. Los pensamientos que nos dejas como siempre buenos, los que mas me gustaron son el que no importa el tamaño del regalo si no el del corazón con que se da. Y ese que nos dice que no importa lo que piensen de uno si no lo que tu pienses de ti.


  10. Oh..., hello, good morning, Mister Bean...
    Nice log, Linda, as Always !

  11. sympa alf sur le dernier tableau :)
    je te souhaite un doux dimanche bisous

  12. Happy Sunday Linda xox

    It's true our first purpose is to love each other ♡

  13. I can empathize with Mr. Bean. In first year of college, I could climb down from a top bunk, walk across the room, turn off the alarm, go back and climb up to my bunk, go to sleep and wake up at noon and not remember any of it. :)

  14. LOL that Mr. Bean video reminds me of how glad I am that I no longer have to wake up by an alarm clock every morning.

  15. Suuuuper!!!

    Have a nice week end!
    Photographer Gil Zetbase

  16. I really like the first quote about anti-bullying being not enough...yes, we need to teach people how to treat others kindly.

  17. I,shared the "Dance On" quote with my stepdaughter.

  18. It's true that our purpose on Earth is to love, everything else is secondary. People don't get that. Mr Bean is always so funny.

  19. Happy Sunday Linda! I like that Whisper of the Heart.

  20. ''plenty of poutine' me fait sourire Linda
