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.

You are not born a winner.  You are not born a loser. You are born a chooser.


If you're reading this, you've survived your life until this point.  Heartbreak.  Losses.  Betrayals.  Trauma. And here you are.  You go, fierce warrior.  You are awesome.


Everything will be okay in the end.  If it's not okay, it's not the end. - John Lennon


I will never understand why every organ in your body gets support and sympathy when it is ill except for your brain.


Beware of destination addiction...a preoccupation with the idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job and with the next partner.  Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are. - Robert Holden


Remember, you are always responsible for how you act.  No matter how you feel.


Even the smallest of thoughts have the potential to become the biggest of successes...all you have to do is get up and get going.  Good morning.


Your mind is a powerful thing.  When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.


When you truly desire change, you can make it happen for yourself. - Louise Hay


The only thing more exhausting than having a mental illness is pretending like you don't.


And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over.  But one thing is certain:  when you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in.  That's what this storm is all about. - Haruki Murakami


The world would be a much better place if we all wore more tutus and tiaras.  :)


People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness.  Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost. - Dalai Lama


Go for it!  If you don't fail now and again, it's a sign you're playing it safe. - Woody Allen


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. I've no problem getting up in the morning even if I have to set the alarm and get up early but I would need forty winks in the afternoon and go to sleep early the following night.

  8. Interesting video about the sunfish and the naked bird. About the alarm clock, I find it hard to get up early to go to work because I couldn't get enough sleep. Now I find that I could easily wake up early.

  9. Cara Linda, oggi che il caldo ci soffoca stiamo sperando che piova.
    Ciao e buona giornata con un forte abbraccio e un sorriso:-)

  10. What an intricate world in which we life. The seagull helping the sun fish is just one example. So sad about the little bird losing its feathers, but so nice that someone adopted it.

    Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  13. Some great material here, Linda! Love the sunfish/seagulls video and the naked bird video! I know why mosquitoes bite me - I taste so good! Ha! And the posters: I related very much to the brain mental health one and the destination addiction! As for the worst thing I do in the morning? Well, that's easy. I get out of bed! Heh, heh. Have a super weekend and I so appreciated your comment on the gazebo shot!

  17. Loved the sleep one. I never use the snooze button. Makes no sense if you can sleep the extra 30 minutes without being bothered by the alarm.

    Mosquitoes love me and now I know why.

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

  20. Found your mosquito video interesting. I believe their attraction to me has something to do with my blood pressure meds.

  24. I have a tendency for insomnia, and I battled it for years. I finally found a clock that allowed me to turn off the digital read, so if I woke up...I couldn't see the time! Helped me to go back to sleep, rather than, "ooh, it's 3:30! I only have 3-1/2 more hours..."

  25. What a lovely relaxing video of the fountain Linda...loved the quote about happiness - in fact I pinned it. So true. Thank you for a delightful post. Have a happy weekend. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  35. There are always interesting nature clips on your blog. Didn't know much about sunfish at all but I know more now.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Mosquitoes used to bite me too, but after I had first child, they leave me alone :) ... Heart braking/ warming video of that naked lil fighter ... Wishing you a very good w/e, friend Linda ... Love, cat.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are fantastic, Linda! I loved the story about the sunfish. How interesting that they know where to go, and what to do, and that Nature has also imbued other critters with that specialized knowledge, so that everyone helps the other out. Wishing you a great week-end, Linda. xx

  41. Hi Linda and thank you for your visit to my blog. Yes, Cindy is a sweetheart and I was blessed to have her as my teacup giftee this past time. Wow...what a bunch of cool stuff you have shared here! Very interesting about those fish! Thanks for sharing all the great quotes too and have a blessed weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Linda... I'm back home again with lots of material to blog about. I knew about the cleaner fish and the giant ocean sunfish but I'd never heard about the symbiotic relationship between fish and seagull. Very cool! Regarding the mosquitoes, I can now tell my wife that her odor is so appealing that its the reason that she draws those nasty little pests. (They don't like me much!) That naked parrot looks a lot better with its sweaters on... It's great that someone cared enough to provide the bird with a warm save home. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  43. When you fill your mind with positive thoughts, your life will start to change - I try it, it's very important, but sometimes seems very difficult :)
    Have a nice week :)

  44. I was bitten by a dengue carrying mosquito two years back and ended up in hospital for a week! Such tiny creatures, such big power.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Linda: I just noticed your comment on Phil Slade's post about Sand Martins. We have the same species here in North Ameeica where we call it Bank Swallow. Why we choose a name different from the rest of the world I am not sure. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  46. "Born a chooser." Wow! That's a good 'un ;o) Thanks Linda!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Dear Linda - Bird without feathers is not quite new to me. I have seen a documentary of fast growing broiler chicken without feathers. I was shocked, as it was done for human convenience. On the other hand, Rhea’s news is so heartwarming. Rhea is so adorable. I’m happy for her that she has such a loving new mother. Hope she won’t suffer parasait or sunburn.

  48. Hi Linda. That is very interesting about mozzies. Whenever we are on holiday, sometimes here in warm weather, Sue gets bitten a lot and me never, ever. Looks like we should stick to the wine though, so it's not all bad news.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hello dearest Linda, once more I'm amazed to see how you always find so inspiring and encouraging quotes. My motto for today will be: "You are not born a winner. You are not born a loser. You are born a chooser."
    Thank you and have a happy Sunday! xx

  52. You always choose the most interesting videos Linda. I enjoyed them all but the sun fish one was fascinating and the featherless bird so incredibly sweet. Thank you my friend. A great post as always.
