Weekend Breather

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

Cat Meets Baby and Mama Moose

The Bad Waiter  :)

Why Jellyfish Float Like a Butterfly and Sting Like a Bee

The Lawrence Welk Show - Mack the Knife

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.

Celebrate every tiny victory.


Trauma is personal.  It does not disappear if it is not validated.  When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin. - Danielle Bernock


Believe in your dreams.  They were given to you for a reason.


I love views that make me realize most of my problems aren't that big of a deal.


Allow yourself to be where you are and enjoy it.  The next time you're in the shower, check and see if you are in the shower.  Because you may not be in the shower.  You may be off in the future or off in the past, but you are not actually there under the water feeling the water on your skin. - John Kabat Zinn


If you want to be happy, stop thinking about revenge.  When you stop focusing on other people's unhappiness, you have more time to focus on your happiness.


You don't have to figure out how to solve all your problems right now.  Just figure out what you can do to feel better in this moment.


Anger is heavy.  Let it go.


Sometimes you're taken into troubled waters not to drown but to be cleansed.


Don't let anyone get your tutu in a twist.










Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  1. Life is better when you are happy. But life is the best when other people are happy because of you.
    Be inspired, give peace and share your smile with everyone.
    Have a nice weekend!

  2. "Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee" was the late Muhammad Ali's tagline, aka Cassius Clay.

  5. This post is one of my favourites, friend Linda ... just came back from Europe on a family visit ... feeling like sitting between 2 worlds/chairs more than ever, and crying about that ... thank you for cheering me up. Love, cat.

  8. I thought the cat stalking the baby and mama moose was so brave until the mama moose walked toward the cat and it fled! Lol! It is so very true about trauma being personal and it can be healed.

  12. That old addage, "Curiosity killed the cat," was almost validated in that cat/moose video. :) I've eaten in a lot of restaurants over the years and have encountered most of those waiters at one time or another. Fortunately, they're in the minority. I'll remember not to let my tutu get in a twist. :)

  13. The quotes today really made me think. I did smile at the waiter video and the cat meeting the moose was idyllic.

  14. Good morning, I enjoyed watching the cat with the moose video. Amazing! Thanks for sharing the videos, wise words and quotes. Happy Friday, have a happy weekend!

  15. So glad it's Friday! Hoping everyone in the path of the hurricane comes out of it unscathed!

  16. So far so good, Linda. Lots of wind and rain but we're far enough inland so we'll be spared the worst of it. Love that cat video...those critters think they can do anything! And that waiter! We've had some like that. I always want to tell them I don't care what their name is or anything about them, I just want them to provide good service! :) Hope you're doing well!

  17. Hello,Linda
    Impressive word. "Anger is heavy.Let it go". I do not like people who get angry easily. Being smile makes people happy. Have a good weekend.

  18. The cat doesn't know what to make of those big beasts.

  19. Hahahaha ..... great fun video of the cat mother and baby moose.
    The movie of The Bad Waiter I did not understand at all but it was fun. The video Why Jellyfish Float Like a Butterfly and Sting Like a Bee I felt very special. These animals are also millions of years old.
    The The Lawrence Welk Show I really liked and I was lol very cheerful because of ...

    PS I'm late in responding but we were vorite week holiday

  22. Awww on the cat and the moose. I wouldn't have stuck around either. I linked you to Feline Friday.

    Loved the bad waiter. He was really bad.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend Linda. ☺

  27. Cute and educational videos and the Lawrence Welk one was great, wish it was still on. Great quotes and art work. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

  28. Linda, At least that cat had enough sense to quickly depart when mamma moose came over to check it out! The worst waiters are those that are in your face pushing you or just being way too familiar! Lawrence Welk...ahh...the days of innocence!

    My mantras are: "If I can't change it, I don't worry about it" and "It is what it is"...both along the same line of thought.

    Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  29. "Don't let anyone get your tutu in a twist."

    Recently a friend of mine was getting quite cross with life happenings. It was also her birthday and I managed to find a card of an adorable hedgehog dressed in a sparkly tutu ... with the message ' hope your birthday sparkles like you do'. She did have a wonderful birthday ... but your Princess Sassy Pants quote did remind me of that day!

    Happy Weekend

    All the best Jan

  31. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog, Linda. I am sure that Montreal has lots of places to explore nature. Years ago I used to bird in the Morgan Aboretum when I visited Montreal.

  32. Oh - that video clip with cat meeting moose was priceless. Love the quote about troubled waters - very true!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I agree that we should believe in our dreams. Enjoy the long weekend. Happy Thanksgiving Linda.

  34. Linda, thank you for visiting my blog this morning. Your visit to me enabled me to find you.

    I used to classify myself as Highly Sensitive Person too. I've been on anti-depressants for a year now, and they have eased that a bit. I'm not quite as sensitive as I used to be, but, still, I am a tender soul, with tender feelings.

    When I was a little girl, we used to watch the Lawrence Welk show on Sunday evenings. At least I think it was Sunday. I always loved it. That dancing is amazing!!

    Blessings on your day,
    Patti

  35. Haha! You can tell immediately when that cat stalking the moose decides that discretion is the better part of valour! LOL I always enjoy all of your post, Linda; but the Raphael Vavasseur Art really resonated with me today! Love the girl in the tub ~ reminds me of me in my Grammie's identical tub in Smith's Cove! Sending you lots of love, my cherished friend!

  36. Très marrant!
    Bon weekend!

  37. Dear Linda - enjoyed seeing the cat meet baby moose and mama. We don't have moose here so it is fun to view them. They are such large animals. Loved the quote regarding being in the present...shower :)! Need to practice that more. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Hugs!

  38. The cat and moose video is so cute! Yep, I would flee, too, realizing mama moose is so much bigger :-)

  39. Enjoyed the bad waiter clip! Thanks for the smiles.

  40. Anger is too heavy and it would be so much easier if we could leave it just in time. Thank for sharing my dear friend. Love, Liuba x

  52. Coucou Linda,
    Toujours de jolies choses sur ton blog. Un réel plaisir. Bon dimanche à toi. Bises

  53. That is so true - When you stop focusing on other people's unhappiness, you have more time to focus on your happiness.

  54. I like this - Allow yourself to be where you are and enjoy it. The next time you're in the shower, check and see if you are in the shower. Because you may not be in the shower. You may be off in the future or off in the past, but you are not actually there under the water feeling the water on your skin.

    This is because sometimes we humans don't know how to treasure and live in the present moment, we keep thinking about the past and worried about the future

  55. The cat and the moose is quite funny :)

    Believe in your dreams. They were given to you for a reason. <--- Indeed!

  58. Animals just have a way of making everything better! Thanks for your finds of fun and wisdom today Linda. :-)

  59. You don't have to figure out...' is really true!
    I wrote it down in my notebook.
