You're allowed to scream, you're allowed to cry, but do not give up.


Pain is real but so is hope.

Know your worth, then add tax.


Part of what makes an awesome person awesome is how they can make those around them feel awesome.


The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling. - Fabienne Fredrickson


Wherever you are...every step, every breath...choose them on purpose...for a purpose.


The most important things in life aren't things. - Anthony D'Angelo


He who has a why to live for, can bear almost any how. - Friedrich Nietzsche


You are today where your thoughts have brought you.  You will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. - James Allen


Sometimes our anxious mind is silenced by the beauty we encounter, for beauty reflects and reminds us always who we truly are.

  11. Such a great set of encouraging words and fun music, Linda! Each one brought a smile to my heart. This may sound corny, but you touch my heart with each edition. Also, sometimes when my chemical depression kicks in and my "logic" doesn't see me completely through the haze, I think of you, and what would you do. It really does help me keep on going, knowing I'm not alone, and that you care deeply for others, even when you are sorta trapped in the nightmare of "not-caring-ness". It's strange to be there - because we DO care so much, but then, there is something slightly deadening the caring part - sometimes it makes me feel like I'm a fake - but I'm not - it's just me, fighting through the haze. Thanks for letting me share - maybe I put TMI here today LOL xxxxx

  26. The tune from Chicago does it for me. Twain's quote is so true. Excellent choices Linda and thanks for sharing them. I hope you have a wonderful day.

  27. Linda, With Abba a big hit on Broadway...plus a related movie, their music is pretty current right now despite the years. I liked your other selections too but I did have to look up A' La Carte...that Euro Girl Group. I'd never heard of them before but I noted that they recorded a lot of popular North American music... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  37. Hi Linda,
    Music always does good.
    The happy tunes can I sing along too :-)
    Very nice chose these clips.
    The text phrases are also carefully selected and there are therefore very nice spells between.

    Best regards, Helma
