Take 5 (or 10?)
By Mona Lease

Hi, all!! Trump "executive orders" the wall built - Mexico to pay for it. Taxpayers might have to pay for it first while Mexico repays the US. Trump says the US is withdrawing from the Pacific Partnership Trade deal. Women dressed like "ladyparts" walking the streets of Washington (DC) in protest to a "slight" they feel is Trump's fault. For the sanctity of this column - I'll just gag. For this particular column - I'll leave you with the following to consider while we take a well-deserved rest break. I trust it will give you a smile or a laugh.

Give, but don't allow yourself to be used. Love, but don't allow yourself to be abused. Trust, but don't be nave. Listen, but don't lose your own voice.  - Sungazing

Ten Ways to Love: (1) Listen without interrupting. (2) Speak without accusing. (3) Give without sparing. (4) Pray without ceasing. (5) Answer without arguing. (6) Share without pretending. (7) Enjoy without complaint. (8) Trust without wavering. (9) Prove without punishing. (10) Promise without forgetting. - Godfruit

Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots. - Words of Wisdom

If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl. But, do whatever you have to do. You have to keep moving forward. - Martin Luther King, Jr

Don't Complicate Life: Missing somebody? CALL. Wanna meet up? INVITE. Wanna be understood? EXPLAIN. Have questions? ASK. Don't like somebody? SAY IT. Like something? STATE IT. Want something? ASK FOR IT. Love someone? TELL THEM. Keep your life SIMPLE. - No listed author

Don't Break a Bird's Wings and Tell It to Fly: Don't break a heart and then tell it to love. Don't break a soul and then tell it to be happy. Don't see the worst in a person and then expect them to see the best in you. Don't judge people and then expect them to stand by your side. Don't play with fire and expect to not get burned. Life is about giving and taking. You can not expect to give bad and receive good. You can not give hate and receive love. So if you're willing to see positive changes in your life, you must be willing to be that change itself. - Life Learned Feelings

Three Things to Keep Private: (1) Your love life. (2) Your income. (3) Your next move. - No listed author

Ships don't sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don't let what's happening around you get inside you and weigh you down. - Power of Positivity

When someone is mean, don't listen. When someone is rude, walk away. When someone tries to put you down, stay firm. Don't let someone else's bad behavior destroy your inner peace. - Lessons Learned in Life

Maturity is when you have the power to destroy someone who did you wrong but you just breathe, walk away and let life take care of them. - Lessons Learned in Life

Remember,  no storm lasts forever. Hold on. Be brave. Have faith. Every storm is temporary and we are never alone. - No listed author

When I penned this - I thought I'd be able to keep my mouth shut...wrong. (This should be no surprise to you faithful readers!!) I just have to say this: Walking the streets of Washington DC dressed in "ladyparts: costumes...really?? We're not allowed to wear clothing that reveals our "ladyparts" (or "manparts). Why would you wear a costume that shows it? Did you not think that this could be construed as "porn?" Did you not think of the kiddies who saw this.? The pictures I saw left nothing to the imagination.

As always...use what you can and leave the rest.

Remember the kiddies and our service people. Take good care of the furry and feathered ones out there. Be safe and healthy. See ya next time. Ever Toodles!! MONA
