Always do your best.  What you plant now, you will harvest later. - Og Mandino


Don't compare your life to others.  There's no comparison between the sun and the moon.  They shine when it's their time.


It's hard to sleep when your heart is at war with your mind.


Storms make trees take deeper roots. - Dolly Parton


It's a new day.  Expect great things.  Smile.


Always remember...a few tears in your tutu can't stop you from dancing!


I tried to fit in with the crowd...it was the worst ten minutes of my life!


Some days I feel like my fairy godmother forgot to check her voicemail!  :)


Bring a little light wherever you can.


The only thing we can control in this world is our ability to choose one thought over another.


Just breathe.  You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find a solution to your problems, and capable enough to do whatever needs to be done. - Lori Duchene


Once you've accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.


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


Happiness is...a rainy summer day, a good book and a cup of coffee.


Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it.


Train your mind to be calm in every situation.



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!

  12. Wow! I've never seen a "bird of paradise" like that - it scarcely looks real with those interesting plumes off its back! Loved their mating dance, Linda - so sweet and interesting. Wonderful quotes and sentiments today (as always), but I especially enjoyed the encouragement to be one's self - thank you, Linda. You have helped me overcome many a fear and insecurity with your blog - I'm sure I'm not alone, either. Thank you for being such a big part of my life! You ARE a rare gift to me. Wishing you a great week-end, my friend! hugs, de

  18. Hi Linda, I love this post and that kangaroo and the bird of paradise is my favorite. Have you ever thought of putting a Paypal button on your blog? I have come across people who do this. People get such enjoyment out of your blog I am sure it would be used often.

  29. So much in your post today, Linda! I'm a big hugger, so I loved the hugging kangaroo! I'm shy, but I do try to talk to strangers, and I have my personal project of smiling a giant smile at all sorts of people. It was fun to spot the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur in the talking to strangers video. The video on Costa Rica and Nicaragua brought back many memories from almost 30 years ago ~ These countries have really developed their tourism since Terry and I traveled there. Of all the videos I showed my kiddos over the years, I think they enjoyed watching the mating rituals of birds the most. Their all-time favorite was the Blue-Footed Booby ~ You just can't stop third grade boys from being third grade boys!!! And so much inspiration in your quotes! Every one spoke to me. I have to focus on calmness because I radiate energy, and that can unsettle others around me. Wishing you a productive, but unstressed, weekend my special Montreal friend! Sending you love and hugs!

  32. "Don't compare your life to others. There's no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it's their time."
