Merry Monday

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

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.

What you do today can improve all your tomorrows. - Ralph Marston


Suffering is not holding you.  You are holding suffering.


You are never responsible for the actions of others, you are only responsible for you.  When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the careless comments or actions of others. - Don Miguel Ruiz


Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity.  It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and the deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment. - Arthur Jersid


He who experiences the unity of life sees his own self in all beings, and all being in his own self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye. - Buddha


What goes around comes around.  Keep your circle positive.  Think good thoughts.  Speak good words. Do good deeds.


It's tempting to ignore what you don't want to deal with.  But ignoring won't improve things.  You cannot change what you refuse to confront.


Sometimes something might look like an obstacle in your path...but it's really a gift meant to move you in a better direction.


The moment I chose gratitude as a way of life...was the moment miracles started unfolding, and I realized that I already have everything I need.


Look in the depth of your being, under all the stressful, abusive thoughts you think about yourself, there lies perfect peace.


If yesterday was a good day, don't stop.  Maybe your winning streak has just begun.  Have a great day.


Today I will do my best.  If I have a good day, I will be proud of myself.  If I have a bad day, I will not dwell on it, I will forgive myself, I will put it behind me and I will continue to move forward.


Every morning is destiny's way of telling you that your purpose in life is yet to be fulfilled.


Be yourself even when the world tries to make you something else.  Speak your truth with kindness and be yourself with courage.






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!

  15. Los animales saben ganarse el cariño de las personas y otros animales bien no lo demuestran los vídeos del gato y del pequeño ciervo.

  17. Good morning Linda, lovely set today. The Pooh saying it particularly hitting home today with me as I have been "called on the carpet" so-to-speak by another blogger for my last post. I guess "be yourself" means different things to different people.
    Always great to visit your blog.

  28. What goes around comes around! That, I do believe! Do unto others what you want others do unto you...or do not do unto others what you do not want others do unto you.

  44. What goes around comes around. Something my Mum always said and also applied it to anyone who told lies. They will always catch you out.
    Of course thanks again for my favourite artist Raphael Vavasseur Art.

  45. Hi Linda. Thank you so much . Your blog is my great pleasure.

  46. Happy Tuesday, Linda! I hope that your week has gotten off to a good start! I enjoyed all the videos today. I truly believe that animals like Draven and the deer can bring comfort and joy to those who are in the hospital or housebound. Always, your quotes ring so true with me. I really believe in the unity of life: Like it or not, we are part of all the living things on Earth, not separate from them. They are not ours to use. I had an awful day, when Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Accord; but that passed and now I'm ready to take steps to mitigate that. Salmansohn was spot on today. I buried a lot of things that happened to me in the past, and it wasn't until I had worked on my memoir and faced the memories for at least two years, before I started healing. Now the one thing right now that I can do to improve all my tomorrows is to go walk! So I'm out the door. Have a lovely day, my special Montreal friend!
