Mind, Body, Soul
Another Serving!
By Mona Lease

Greetings, Gals!! I had such a good response to the last two columns and requests for "another round" - that I thought I'd give ya'll "another serving!" Keep reaching for your goals...they're closer than you think. Keep stretching the mind and body.  Enjoy!!

"It's ok to miss people and still not want them back in your life." - Bitch Crazy

"Learn to love with all of your heart and accept the unlovable side of others. For anyone can love a rose, but it takes a great heart to include the thorns." - Love Wide Open

"The first step in getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are." - Unknown...That's Life 1

"Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"There is no greater wealth in this world than peace of mind." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"One day you'll look back at the risk you took and think: "Wow, I'm really glad I did that." - Word Porn

"Understand the value of every moment. Some day it will only be a memory." - That's Life 2

"When you start looking at peoples' hearts instead of their face, life becomes clear." - That's Life, too

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"Don't expect loyalty when you can't provide honesty." - That's Life too

"When trust is broken, sorry means nothing." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"The most beautiful way to start and end the day is with a grateful heart." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"Some days I have my act together....some days I spit toothpaste in my own hair." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give, but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and the hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"Think of a number. Double it. Add six. Take away the number with which you started. Your answer is three." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"I can't explain why I made so many mistakes, why I repeated them knowing I was digging a hole too deep to climb out of. I only know I did.

I can't explain it, excuse it. No one forced me to do it. I could have been influenced, manipulated, but at the end, I said YES. Therefore, rather than excuse, I choose to be accountable.

Why is this important? Accountability takes me from a victim mentality to a victor mentality....puts me in the driver's seat and in control of my next move.

I can't explain the past, yet I don't have to. I just have to learn from it and choose to BE and DO more." - Addiction Interrupted

"Be grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love. Life is so very precious." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"A friend who understands your tears is much more valuable than a lot of friends who only know your smile." - Peace. Love and Everything Else

"Be thankful for today, because in one moment. your entire life could change." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"Charlie Brown tells Snoopy: "Some day we will all die."  Snoopy answers Charlie Brown: "True, but on all the other days we will not." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"Don't ever lie to me, I understand a lot of stuff, ain't no need to lie. Be real with me. I respect honesty no matter how bad it is." - Kevin Gates

"Sometimes all you need is for someone to just be there, even if they can't solve your problems. Just knowing there is someone who cares can make all the difference." -

The best is yet to be!!     MONA
