I radiate love and respect and in return I receive love and respect.


I work extremely hard to stay positive and happy. But I get sad and anxious, too, just like everyone. - Rachel Platten


Happy endings always start with hope.


You only have control over three things in your life...the thoughts you think, the images you visualize and the actions you take. - Jack Canfield


Whether we and our politicians know it or not, nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do. - Wendell Berry


If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction. - Martin Kornfeld


Intelligence - not because you think you know everything without questioning, but rather because you question everything you think you know.


Just because you are happy it does not mean that the day is perfect, but that you have looked beyond its imperfections. - Bob Marley


I have P.M.A. (Positive Mental Attitude) - I'm positive, I'm mental and I know I have attitude!  :)


Can you remember who you were...before the world told you who you should be? - Danielle Laporte


It's not the size of your house that makes a home...it's the size of your heart!


Who is more hurtful?  The person who wronged you once - or you for reliving it over and over in your head? - Byron Katie


Your life is a reflection of the choices you make. Even events you don't control, reflect your choice in how you respond.  If you want to improve your life, improve how you make choices.  Try to mindfully make decisions which are inspired by open-mindedness, high integrity and long-term thinking.


Don't be distracted by criticism.  Remember, the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you. - Zig Ziglar


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!

  2. Good Morning Linda. I never heard of a harp guitar until now. It makes a lovely, different soune. And of course that is a classic tune he plays.

  23. Que c'est beau l'harpe guitare j'adore! Bise, bonne soirée toute douce!

  24. Elephants are very unique creatures that exhibit deep feelings of love and concern for each other. Those yoga kittes are so cute. Lois Anne loved them. And the harp guitar's White Christmas was very touching. I'm not sure I've sign a harp guitar before and I've owned lots of guitars. The Salmanson posters were the best, as usual. And many thanks for your delightful and numerous comments! You're the best! Hope this is a super week for you!

  25. I have loved these beautiful cats.

    Have a good week.

    Kisses

  26. Linda, Love the baby elephant rescue! They are such loving and protective animals...smart too. Our cat could use some of that yogi meditation. He is always demanding our attention or immediate service! He could use a chill pill for sure.

    That is the first harp/guitar that I've ever seen. Great sound! As for that Texas City ex-con, it shows that there is hope for some of those who began life going down the wrong path. Unfortunately, I suspect that few ex-cons are going to thank and pray for their arresting officers. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  30. Happy endings start with hope! Yay! So agree with this!

  31. I have another Zig Ziglar quote at my office: "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily"

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh Linda, I just had to come and quickly watch the baby elephant video. That is the sweetest thing ever! Oh my goodness! Animals many times are so much more nurturing. : )

    Looks like you have some great quotes as well. I will come back and read in depth!

    Blessings to you Linda!

  35. Happy Monday Linda, I hope your weather wasn't too bad... we had a snowstorm here in Nova Scotia ...

    I love Jack Canfield quotes this is a good one: You only have control over three things in your life...the thoughts you think, the images you visualize and the actions you take. - Jack Canfield xox

  37. A particularly inspiring selection of videos and quotations today, Linda! Elephants are gorgeous animals - sadly so often abused, if not killed.
    Thank you for sharing. Have a happy Tuesday!

  38. En el vídeo de los elefantes pensé por un momento la madre atacaría a las personas que rescataron al bebe. Los gatos muy simpáticos.
    En cuanto al instrumento musical muy curioso.

    Saludos.

  39. I have never seen a harp guitar before. Beautiful music.

  41. Love and respect are very important, that is true.
    Have a good evening

  42. Hi Linda! I watched two videos, the charming one of the little elephant rescue, and the vintage toys. Isn't it something to think that these were 'penny toys'? It's been a long time that any toy would cost a penny. I really enjoyed that, seeing all the little tin and cork toys.

    Your meme about being happy in spite of imperfection was just inspired for me today. Thank you for including that one!
    Have a wonderful day :)

  43. The first clip of the baby elephant is very touching and very beautiful to see. The cat I found particularly because they keep all mala on their own mat !! ?? I ahd never heard a harp guitar. I did not even know it really existed. Great to then the song White Christmas played on this dark night :-) All videos were great again. The text images are again chosen with care. Thank you for sharing this.
    Cordial greetings

  44. Hello linda!:) I like the way the cats are all lying on their mats, and loved the video clip of the baby elephant's rescue. The harp guitar is a strange looking instrument but it sounds wonderful, and I loved the young man's rendition of White Christmas.
    Thank you for the many wonderful quotes which are always so inspiring each time I visit. Hugs and Warm Regards:)

  45. Ohhhhhh j'ai adoré la vidéo du bébé éléphant avec sa maman - trop mignon :)
