Monday Summer Breeze

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

Give yourself quiet time each day to get in touch with your deepest, wisest insights.


Respect your uniqueness.  Drop comparison.  Relax into your being. - Rumi


It's a beautiful feeling when someone says, "I wish I met you sooner."


You live.  You learn.  You upgrade.


Love your life...problems and all.


One kind word can change someone's entire day.


I'm at a point in my life where I just want to be very quiet.


Loneliness is dangerous.  It's addicting.  Once you see how peaceful it is, you don't want to deal with people. - Hedonist Poet


Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. - Winston Churchill


All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything! - Gary W. Goldstein


There's no right or wrong way to manage your mental illness.  You are not less of a person for needing medication or having to go to therapy multiple times a week.  If something helps your mental health, take the time to do it.  Don't stop, no matter what other people think. - Hayley Lyvers


Once you learn to appreciate the small victories there is no need for a finish line.


Those who suffer from mental illness are stronger than you think.  We must fight to go to work, care for our families, be there for our friends, and act "normal" while battling unimaginable pain.


She couldn't keep her colors inside the lines, so she drew new lines.



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!

  7. Linda, I wish you a nice summer.


    When a forgotten desire
    emerges in your dream
    like roaring breakers
    What will you tell the seabirds
    about that first smile
    that tender gesture
    those lovely words ...

  30. Maybe I should start doing theme meals for squirrels instead of people. I'm sure it would be easier. People are easier to find, however, as I have only one neighborhood squirrel I see occasionally.

  36. Liked the jellyfish info and the fountain tips. I have a garden pond but never got around to a fountain. Looks easy doing it that way.

  37. Linda, I'm glad to hear that your eye has healed and that your summer in Montreal is comfortable. Much of the USA is in a heat wave and here in East Tennessee we've had copious amounts of rain...compared to last year's severe drought!

    When we were in Australia a few years ago, we had to avoid a couple of beaches due to an especially dangerous jellyfish that could kill you in a very short time. As for the squirrels...I'd be glad to send ours to that ladies house so she could pamper them. They've figured out how to attack our bird feeder and we have a bunch of unhappy birds...not to mention my wife! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  44. "Once you learn to appreciate the small victories there is no need for a finish line." <-- This is great advice, Linda xx I'm keeping this in mind.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Well, I don't agree with the whole Higher Perspective quote, Linda. Yes, loneliness is dangerous, and lonely people can become addicted by wallowing in their loneliness. But the peacefulness the quote refers to is the peace that comes with being comfortable with yourself when you are alone, which is different from loneliness. Just saying ... I am rarely lonely when I am alone. The jellyfish video was so beautiful and filled with fascinating details about this fragile, yet persistent, form of life. I don't like to think of human extinction. I have great hope that we will survive! Sending you love and hugs, my dear friend!

  46. Beautiful!!! Many of your quotes touched my soul! Hope you are well Linda! Big Hugs!
