Colorful Ice Candles

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.

Without rain there would be no flowers.


Be brave.  Say how you feel, leave the job you hate, find your passion, love with every ounce of your bones, stand up for what you believe in, don't settle and never apologize for who you are.


Be the one who nurtures and builds.  Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, one who looks for the best in people.  Leave people better than you found them.


Happiness always look smile while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once how big and precious it is. - Maxim Gorky


Perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take: to be seen as we really are. - Cinderella


Enthusiasm is contagious.  Go out each day smiling and start an epidemic!


Be a light to the world...so others recognize the light in themselves.


It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light. - Aristotle Onassis


Some of the deepest wounds never leave a mark...be kind;  you never know the invisible hurts others might be carrying.


Health benefits of cacao


Equal access to nature for all is a social justice issue.


Give freely to the world these gifts of love and compassion.  Do not concern yourself with how much you receive in return, just know in your heart it will be returned. - Steve Maraboli


If your life has no ups and downs, it means you're dead.


Slainte!  Irish coffee.  :)


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!

  14. You do find so many beautiful things. My favorite this morning has to do with the health benefits of cacao. In fact, I just may have a Snickers bar for breakfast! Just kidding! Have a great da.

  18. El vídeo del baile tahilandes me gusto siempre es bueno conocer otras culturas.
    Lo del baño de las mascotas creo que los gatos siempre fueron poco amigo del agua, aun siendo muy limpios.

    Saludos.

  32. I love the one about happiness seeming small in your hand. So true. Sometimes we don't stop to think about how happy we are and to enjoy the moment. Once we lose something that made us happy we see that it took up a lot more space than we realized. Thanks for sharing. :)

    I heart this. It is so easy to judge others based on what we see.
