This is your Life...

You know when you see something and for that moment in time it makes
you stop and think about your life..  Well yesterday I went to a class and
that is what happened.

They wanted us to stop and think about what type of person we really
are..  Do you see the glass as half full...   Or half empty...

Do you see the beauty in the little things. Or are you to busy to stop
and take notice.

For me I know exactly what type of person I am..
(for the most part) That glass is half FULL..
I always try to try to find the good in everything.  I try to
believe that things happen for a reason.  But I am human and 
I am not always this wonderful person my cats think I am. 
I have so many short falls. That if I listened to that little voice telling
me I'm not good enough, I would really be depressed. 
And believe me sometimes I am!

So I guess I will keep on with the positive renforcment
And keep telling my self you can do it..  What ever it is!!
And try really hard not to whine about it.
Nobody likes a crybaby..
(even though that is my nickname from when I was little)
Yep, I was one of those..

I remember I had a photo I had found awhile ago
 and I just loved it..

Well that about says it all.
I just love this.  The site I got it from said it was from an unknown source.. 
If this photo belongs to you I will gladly give you credit.. 
It is awesome..

So I just want to thank you so much for listening to me and
taking a peek at some of my photo's, I really do appreciate all your sweet comments.

Hugs, Linda 


  1. Wonderful post, Linda. Sure to make alot of people think today. I always love your photos, as you know. You are a dear!

  2. wow! I am a glass half empty person no matter how hard I try not to be, your post has made me think, love those shots.

  3. Beautiful post Linda, sometimes I just wish I am more "brave" to express my emotion, I was holding up the past few days, I don't evenwant randy to say anything to Clare like "we will miss you" when I am around, I know I will cry, I was holding up so well, hug Clare, and drove home all alone, and then ....... all the way home....

  4. Wonderful post ~ thanks for sharing! Beautiful photos too!

  5. I'm a glass half full girl and totally love that sign...try to do as many of the things it your pics!

  6. Hi Linda, I only know you "cyberly" ( I made up that word, I'm sure it does not exist in a dictionary), but you know what I always come across to me as a very positive, warm person who loves and appreciates life........definitely NOT a cry baby. I think it's good sometimes to "self analyse" because it's good to sometimes question our behaviour, hey no one is perfect after all. I love the sign, like you said, it says it all. If you are appreciative and grateful for everything in your life then I think your glass will always be half full rather than half empty. xx

  7. What a wonderful and thoughtful post Linda!
    I so enjoyed reading this, and I DO love that sign.
    Thank you for sharing this!!

  8. I love that sign. I am a glass half-full kind of person and believe if you don't like something try and change it if you can.
    Beautiful images.

  9. Linda, I don't even know where to start. That hummer, the flowers, the sign (love that sign!!!!!!!!!), the glass is half full, or the way you worded this post. It's just the thing I needed to brighten up my day.

  10. Love that hummingbird Linda! Very cool photos to go along with a very cool post. :-)

  11. The self talk that goes on in our head is very powerful sometimes. It takes a lot of strength to always listen to the positive one. I love that poster too - a very good message indeed! xo Catherine

  12. I enjoy your ramblings (and photos), Linda. Thanks for sharing. Have a good weekend.

  13. Linda, what a beautiful post and photos, I really like that last one what great/true words
    I try to stay positive and think there is always a solution to every problem, but I have my down days as well,
    have a wonderful weekend!

  14. Hi Linda
    My comment comes from Portugal, to be more precise from a lovely small town called Viana do Castelo in the north.
    I´ve seen only a litle of your blog and think i found it beautiful and profound enough.
    I´m the kind of person who dont give a chance to myself, I so often feel empty though i have plenty of reasons to live for. Maybe a lack of space for myself or as i like to think a lot of selfishness. But i dont like to play the role of a selfmade martir. I am completely aware that my glass is half full. That picture in particularly enlightens my soul, i will keep on living trying to find all the joy that life brings, in all aspects. I love your photos, they all present us life with the purity, truth and beauty.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a message. I hope you enjoyed your stay.
