Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. - Nathaniel Hawthorne


Good morning.  Don't start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday.  Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our lives.


Some of your best dreams are with your eyes wide open, pay attention to them.


You don't have to be positive all the time.  It's perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared or anxious. - Lori Deschene


What we see depends mainly on what we look for. - John Lubbock


View change as chance.  It's a chance for something new and better to happen.


Think of yourself as negative-thought intolerant!  Just as drinking dairy is bad for the lactose intolerant, thinking negatively is bad for you.


You live longer once you realize that time spent being unhappy is time wasted.


Life is amazing.  And then it's awful.  And then it's amazing again.  And in between the amazing and awful it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing.  Hold on through the awful.  And relax and exhale during the ordinary.  That's just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life.  And it's breathtakingly beautiful. - L.R. Knost


Smile.  Even bad days have happy moments.  Look for them.


You will be too much for some people.  Those aren't your people.


Did you know that it takes less than 90 seconds for anger to "surge through our body and then be completely flushed out of our blood stream." - Jill Botte Taylor
Count to 90 as the stressful emotion takes you over and flows through you and watch it melt away and release you...


At the end of a long day...take time to relax and unwind.


There's a magical place inside you where nothing is impossible.


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. Fabric softener. I wonder how many men bother to use that - perhaps, there are some who do not know there is such a thing. Salute all women, Happy International Women's Day.

  16. Hello, Linda! I enjoyed the animal videos. Wonderful advice and words of wisdom. Thanks for sharing your inspiring post. Enjoy and have a happy day!

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL! Love that Downy ad - my how the times have changed, Linda - it's always enjoyable spending an hour or two periodically to view an old movie, read an old book, and review something of history to remind us that our culture, society, and even ourselves, evolve over the course of years.

    I like the Lubbock quote about seeing - and what we are looking for - boy is that ever true in every sense of the word!

    My favorite is Princess Sassy Pants today to discover the magical place within us - EVERY DAY!

    Have a great week, L!

  19. The lioness in the video is so gentle. Such a beautiful relationship of trust between lioness and man. It warms my heart to see the dogs and polar bear playing with each other.

  23. As you might imagine, I did enjoy all the Salmansohn posters. She has a way of putting things that work for me. Re the tiny house: Not for me. It would work good as playhouse for some little girls, maybe. Kinda cute, though. I do remember Downy; in fact I think I saw Robert Downey in a TV show last night! :))

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow on that little house. You better not clutter the place either. So cute. I could live there.

    Love the baby cubs. It's rare to have a human friend.

    The bears and the dogs. Wow, never saw that kind of thing before.

    Have a fabulous day, Linda. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  25. Have always wanted to live in a house made of stone. I've collected rocks since I was a kid, and still do. Guess they speak to me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It's so strange seeing the polar bears and dogs getting along so well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. And what a pleasant recharge, dear, darling Linda, I'm so grateful to you for the Beautiful lady you are !

    Wishing you a most wonderful remainder of your week
    with utmost gratitude

    XOXO Dany

  28. Indeed a very small stone cottage but a very nice house :-) Especially the lioness trust the man but I would still reluctant to continue. they are still wild animals. The hinds with polar bears is great to see.
    You also have many beautiful weather and spells that are as always great to see and read.
    Greetings, Helma

  29. Superbe, merci pour ce beau partage! Bisou, bonne journée tout en douceur!

  30. Fabric softener! I had to chuckle over that one, given my recent post and aversion to it - my nose was twitching at the smell all the time I was watching!
    Lovely clips and quotes. Enjoy your week!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Downy fabric softener family sure are happy. Personally, I like my clothes hung to dry because it makes them hard and crinkly.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The polar bear video was cute!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Linda, Classy little stone house! Well designed but I can't see folks my age trying to make it up to bed in the loft. Having to come down in the middle of the night to use the loo could be a risky business too.

    Love the lioness and the cubs... My wife and I were once able to hold baby lions, tigers and leopards. It was very cool but those kinds of "private zoos" have been greatly and properly restricted in the 30 years or so since we had that opportunity.

    As for the polar bears and the huskies...Its a good thing that those bears are well fed. Not only would the dogs be considered a 'rival' for food resources in the wild, they would be considered as food! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  34. Los vídeos de la leona con sus crías con el hombre y los osos y perros jugando me han gustado mucho.
    La sentencia que nos dice que cada amanecer es el primer día de los que nos quedan por vivir es una gran verdad.

    Saludos.

  35. Warms my heart to see different species interacting in fun and loving ways.

  46. Hello Linda
    I'm a day late, it's not mid-week but Thursday.
    I did enjoy your selections though, thank you.

    "At the end of a long day...take time to relax and unwind."

    I think we should!

    Enjoy the rest of your week

    All the best Jan

  50. I think that "Don't start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday" is such an important thing to remember and to live by! Also taking the time to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Great bookends for living your life. Sending you love and hugs, my dear Linda!
