Monday Choices

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

Escape to Monkey Island

Villa Oasis - Turks and Caicos Islands

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.

There's always something to be grateful for and something good coming. (Please remember that!)


Appreciate people who can see the sorrow behind your smile, the love behind your anger, and the reason behind your silence.


Take a moment to be grateful for all the troubles you don't have.


Friends are present in our lives to hold the light for us when ours is dimmed.






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!

  9. Linda los vídeos muy bonitos esas islas caribeñas sus aguas tan transparentes playas de fina arena y la naturaleza entre manglares y cocoteros.
    En muchas ocasione solo vemos el lado negativo de lo que nos ocurre o de las personas que tenemos cerca, pero si nos paramos a pensar lo positivo quizás es mas cantidad.

    Saludos.

  23. That is profoundly true about there always being something to be grateful for and something positive coming around the corner. That has been a guiding philosophy of mine since childhood.

    Many hugs & happy mid-April wishes,

  46. Hi Linda! Thanks for the good reminders to be grateful for all we have. I have a saying up in my kitchen: "There is no such thing as gratitude unexpressed. If it is unexpressed, it is plain, old-fashioned ingratitude." - Robert Brault Sometimes I need that reminder to tell people (and to tell God) THANK YOU! :)

  47. Monkey Island sure looks like a beautiful place.

  48. Linda,

    I was going to e mail you but when I went into my contacts you weren't there. Then I realized that I only had four contacts! Not sure what happened to you and everyone else. ??

    I just wanted to thank you for your comment on my blog tonight. I know Elaine Aron says 1/20 are HS but I have never actually met anyone that it. There are those that I have suspected but not sure as they had never heard of Elaine Aron and her research.

    Anyway, I am saying thank you because it is hard being HS and living in this body and very, very few people understand. I have come to the conclusion that the trait is beneficial to a lot of OTHER people because we are so caring and aware and sensitive. But it isn't always beneficial to ourselves. It can be very, very hard and very, very awful. Knowing that there isn't actually something wrong with me makes a difference.

    My whole life people have been telling me that I am "too sensitive". Not one of my clients has ever said that to me! (Again with this trait benefiting others.) I have on occasion replied with, "No, you are just not sensitive enough", but I don't like to be unkind so keep it to myself. But I am 100% convinced that if there were more people were sensitive the world would be a much better place. If everyone was we would have no wars and anger and hate. The world would be a beautiful place.

    Thanks again, Linda. xo

  49. Haha..."Escape to Monkey Island" was amazing!
    Co-incidentally, my son wrote a story called Monkey Island when he was small...and this brought all those poignant memories flooding back!:))
    These quotes are wonderful too...all of them...make my day beautiful...:)

    Big Hugs xoxoxo

  50. Or instead of being thankful for all the troubles we don't have, maybe just enjoy the good we do have.
