Quote of the Week

Don't let life ruffle your feathers.

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, it means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections. - Unknown

Once you have made this decision, you are in control of your happiness, and this is the greatest gift you can give yourself.


  1. It really is about how you choose to look at things.

    Awesome heron shot, Linda!

  2. Fabulous words to live by. Seriously.

  3. Mo and I try to live this every day. Some days it's harder :)

  4. You are so right in your interpretation of this quote:~) Not always easy for me to do, but what a relief when I do. Thanks for this!

  5. Talon- Thanks! The herons are not so shy in Florida. I think their focus is on the fish. ;)

    Meleah- Indeed, it should make life easier, with less ruffled feathers.

    Babs- I understand that!

    Sara- You're right, it isn't always easy, but when we do it's a good thing.

  6. And it's a very good thing, indeed, that happiness isn't tied in to perfection... everyone would be miserable!!

  7. I love this one! I had a friend who bought a pair of earrings and found that they'd sold her one round one and one square one. She kept them to remind her that nothing is perfect. I think about that all the time. Perfection is highly over-rated.

  8. Hi Linda .. so right - life is sunnyside up - because it's life and boy are we lucky to be here ..

    Laughter is best medicine for all of life and it's never perfect ..

    It's also the greatest gift you can give someone else your happiness becomes theirs ...

    Cheers - have a great weekend .. Hilary
