Life's greatest riches have nothing to do with money.


Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. - Aristotle


Depression is melancholy minus its charms. - Susan Sontag


Healing comes in waves, and maybe today the wave hits the rocks and that's okay, that's okay, darling. You are still healing.


There is a season for everything under the sun - even when we can't see the sun. - Jared Brock C.S. Lewis


This is all I want in life:  for this pain to seem purposeful. - Elizabeth Wurtzel


Note to self:  I don't have to take this day all at once, but rather, one step, one breath, one moment at a time.  I am only one person.  Things will get done when they get done.


It's never too late to start the day over.


It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default. - J.K. Rowling


It took me far too long to realize that lost years and relationships can not be recovered.  That damage done to oneself and others cannot always be put right again. - Kay Bedfield Jamison


Don't light yourself on fire trying to brighten someone else's existence. - Charlotte Eriksson


I fight for my health every day in a way most people don't understand.  I'm not lazy.  I'm a warrior.


We are all born creative - we stopped being creative when we starting comparing ourselves to others.


Comparison is the thief of joy. - Theodore Roosevelt



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!

  4. Loved that peak into the "Ideal" home. Funny that some of those must-have ideas didn't make it in the real world.
    Have a good Wednesday, Linda
    :)

  7. Thank you for sharing the interesting videos and wise quotes. I love that Tiny House in the woods with abundance of greens! That's my dream retirement house!
    That video of the love goat warms my heart. I should go vegetarian and not eat any more kebabs! LOL

  12. Hello, Linda! Loved the videos. I really like the tiny houses. Cute video on the bathing bird and the goat. Thanks for your inspiring post. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  13. Interesting thought..."Comparison is the thief of joy." The animal video was so sweet. Who would think of an emu and a goat becoming fast friends?

  14. Wonderful post once again Linda and as always you make smile.

    It's never too late to start the day over. That is a great thought as sometimes I wish the day was over quickly. Change of plan now :-)

    Take care and have a good day Diane

  15. Love the tiny house, but I don't think I could live there very long. I'd go stir crazy. Too small.

    Love the baby goat.

    Really loved watching the birds splash in the water. We watch them in our fountain often.

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

  17. Hello Linda! I hope you are feeling better this week. : )

    What an adorable animal video...That little goat is so sweet. What a great place that animal sanctuary must be.

    The 60s video made me smile, it's really something that some of the inventions did not carry over well, the magnetic stove, the disposal that crushes glass...Wow! The bathing birds made me want to put a birdbath in my backyard area!

    Great quotes Linda. Some of them were right on the money for me this morning.

    Great blessings to you dear friend!

  18. Loved it today dear Linda. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  19. The baby goat is adorable and I also liked the birdbath video.

  20. "Healing comes in waves" reminds me that my father used to say: Ilness comes with the kilograms, and healing with the grams - slowly, gradually. The ill person has to have patience to get better.

  21. Greetings, Linda. Thanks again for this post. I'm not a fan of tiny houses, but this tea house is rather cute. And I've come to think baby goats can be fun as our daughter raises them and loves them. Love the 1960s houses ... that's part of my era! Hope you're well, and I hope the rest of this week is wonderful for you.

  22. While taking the Dale Carnegie course, the first rule learned is, "Don't criticize, condemn or complain". I've always added, 'don't compare'.

  23. The goat video is sweet.

  26. Good morning, Linda.
    Loved the videos, especially the animal videos. The quotes about comparisons really resonated with me today.
    Thank you for being my ray of sunshine, Linda!

  27. I enjoyed the goat and bird bath video. Its fun watching the birds splashing in the bird bath and then the big birds come to take over.

  28. Hi Linda,

    Lovely videos and inspiring quotes. The first one, 'Life's greatest riches have nothing to do with money', is one that I believe people understand more and more as they age, when they may have acquired a certain amount of wealth, and still feel empty. I hope that young people today realize that materialistic things do not have any value in one's heart and soul.

    Thank you for sharing your fabulous finds!

    Happy Wednesday,
    Poppy:)

  31. Are you feeling better? All wonderful posts. Your newest fan is watching me type. He says Meow!

  32. Hi Linda! Like Amelia, I hope you are feeling better!
    Of course, I watched the tiny house video. I love seeing them and watching them be built, but I can't help but think that I'd go nuts if I lived in one. Just not enough room to move around in...and Oregon doens't have weather that would allow me to be outside all the time. Sigh...I like the 'idea' of them!
    Blessings,
    Ceil

  34. The quote "Comparison if the thief of Joy" is so true but it can be hard to avoid at times. Songbirds splashing was a fun video to see. Thanks for sharing, Linda.

  35. Very nice tiny one, Linda !
    Life's greatest riches have nothing to do with money, but you need some...

  36. Hi Linda, lovely videos today. I enjoyed each one of them. Always love the old Pathe short films. The goat story is adorable.
    I like the quote"It is never too late to start the day over"
    Have a good rest of the day!

  37. Thank you Linda!
    The goat and birdbath are lovley!

  38. Indeed, "Life's greatest riches have nothing to do with money." I couldn't agree more.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I like the concept of these tiny houses. It might encourage more people to buy less - no space to put it all. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Many beautiful, cheering thoughts here.

  41. Thank you, Linda. You've greatly encouraged me today. I especially like the one about fighting for my health and that I am not lazy, but everything spoke meaningfully to my heart. Thank you, my friend. Hugs, de

  42. The last poster is close to my heart. My great grandmother, always reminded me to avoid comparing myself, even competing with others. She further said to always excel in everything that I do.

    These sayings are good for the soul. Thank you for sharing, Ms Linda! :)

  43. Happy Wednesday, Linda! The story of the little goat with a baby emu for a friend was really sweet. I'm trying to imagine what it would be like to be a blind goat with neurological problems. It's fascinating to think that the emu can calm him. Aristotle had it so right! Thanks goodness I don't have to live in such a tiny house! Which reminds me that I have way too many things ~ LOL I hope that you are enjoying a lovely spring week, Linda! Sending you love and hugs!

  44. Those quotes are just amazing. Have a wonderful day!

  45. Hi there Linda - loved the videos, can never see too many birds taking a bath, so cute. Also the little goat and friend, always love those stories.
    Thanks again and enjoy the last part of your week. Cheers now :D) xx

  46. belle citation de "Elizabeth Wurtzel" Linda

    have a nice day

  47. Linda, That tiny home is cute and well designed for its size. It wouldn't work for us though as we like having our own spaces and we wouldn't want to get rid of our accumulated "stuff". The baby goat and his emu buddy's sanctuary is much like our local "Gentle Barn" where a plethora of different animals have been rescued. We have a planter base that serves as a bird bath on the deck railing, another actual birdbath in the front of the house and there is a big boulder at the back with a depression that fills with rainwater. The bird love all of them! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
