Be the color to someone's gray.


The beauty myth is always actually prescribing behaviour and not appearance. - Naomi Wolf


She decided to start living the life she imagined.


You are allowed to feel messed up and inside out.  It doesn't mean you're defective - it just means you're human. - David Mitchell


You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. - Les Brown


I need them to be aware and present with me in the midst of the storm, not just tell me what to do. - Kiera Van Gelder


Turn your inner critic into your inner cheerleader.


It's kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old.  :)


Sometimes the first step to forgiveness is merely forgiving yourself for not being very forgiving. - Shawne Duperon


Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go, but rather learning to start over.

  11. Oh, my. I can totally relate to the quote that says "It's kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old."

    That bear video had my hands sweating...but that bear was beautiful!!!

  13. Some wonderful videos today, Linda. I can't imagine getting that close to a bear - any bear! And those store commercials are a riot. Love that Hungarian jazz singer, too, though I couldn't understand the words. Some wonderful posters also...I, too, like the one about how being old seems pretty normal. Not that I like it, but...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Some very good advice here.

    We all need to be our own inner cheerleader, that one spoke to me.😂😂

  16. Hi Linda, the bear would have been a bit too close for me but after the event, what an amazing experience. A funny clothing video and the koala baby was beyond adorable. I also enjoyed the Hungarian jazz singer and the visit around the Le St-Sulpice Hotel. Always love the wise words and illustrations. Thank you so much and have a great day :)

  17. Learning to start over... We all have to do it frequently, eh? The key is to never be too old (mentally) to face the challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow - I can't believe that guy just sat there filming as the bear sat next to him!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love, love is all we need!

  20. I've seen that bear video before. What a sight! Looking at him, he looks very well fed, so this must have been late in the season before hibernation- the best possible time to encounter a bear. They're not hungry, in a good mood. The poor guy must have been startled to have that big fellow walk right up though.

  21. It's kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old. LOL I could not agree more but wish the body felt as young as the mind feels :-) Great post as always Diane

  22. Very nice bear and koala bear video. I agree with the saying that its kind of funny how being old doesn't seem so old now that I'm old. Lol!

  23. Yikes on the bear. I would have been scared to pieces. Turned out okay though.

    Aww on that baby koala. So precious.

    Loved the hotel. Beautiful.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ♥♥♥

  27. Hi Linda!! Thank you so much for your kind words on Dakota's blog. You have a lovely blog too and we just signed up to follow you! I am a "Highly Sensitive Person" also :) Love the quotes on your blog today. I am going to be 61 tomorrow so I can totally relate!! (((hugs))) DakotasDen

  28. Linda, I wonder if the guy that the bear sat down next to was able to stay 'dry'. I would have probably had a heart attack or something myself. Beautiful grizzly though! Love that baby Koala... I agree with the never too old to set a goal or have a new dream. At my age my goal is to wake up each morning and I dream and set goals for travel...plus winning the lottery! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  30. The bear-video gave me the creeps a bit, but, awwww, the Koalas!
    In Perth, Western Australia, I once touched a Koala. The softest, yet oilyest fur I ever touched, it was awesome, I´ll never forget that experience...
