I Wonder...
By Mona Lease

Hi, all!! I had a request for the following. I kind of wondered why. Maybe it just helps to have a laugh or two. Maybe it helps to see - in print - from someone else - that you're not alone in what you are facing. Enjoy!!

"Everyone makes mistakes in life. But that doesn't mean they have to pay for them for the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices. It doesn't mean they are bad. It means they are human." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"There's still time to change the road you're on." - Led Zeppelin

"Souls recognize each other by vibes, not by appearances." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"People who stay in the car to listen to music a little longer are my kind of people." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"Secrets and lies kill relationships. No matter how careful you are, you will get caught." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"Working hard to make a relationship RIGHT...won't cure the fact that you picked the WRONG person to work with." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"I knew I matured when I realized that every situation doesn't need a reaction. Sometimes you just gotta leave people do the lame stuff they do." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"One of the hardest decisions you will ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder." - Halos and Horns Fun Page

"A 92-year-old moved into our nursing home today. She was well-fashioned, well-poised, and proud. However, she was also blind. Her husband of 70 years passed away recently, necessitating the lady's move. As she walked to her new, nursing home room, I described her surroundings. "I love it," she said, as enthusiastic as a small child on Christmas morning. "We haven't reached the room yet." I said. "That doesn't matter," she said. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend upon the furniture's arrangement. It's all in how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It's a decision I make every morning. I can either spend the day moping about my life, or I can get up and be thankful for what I still have. Each day is a gift. As long as I know that, I'll be happy." - Power of Positivity's Video

"Old Soul: There is a special kind of person in our world who finds himself alone and isolated, almost since birth. His solitary existence isn't from a preference or anti-social temperament - he is simply old. Old in heart, old in mind, and old in soul...this person is an old soul who finds his outlook on life vastly different and more matured than those around him." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

"Being a male is a matter of birth. Being a man is a matter of age. But being a gentleman is a matter of choice." - Power of Positivity

"For as long as you live, and as high as you fly, and smiles you'll give, and tears you will cry, all that you touch, and all that you see, is all that your life will ever be." - Pink Floyd

"Avoid People Who: (1)Mess with your head. (2)Intentionally and repeatedly do and say that which they know upsets you. (3)Expect you to prioritize them, but refuse to prioritize you. (4)Can't and won't apologize sincerely. (5)Act like the victim when confronted with their abusive behavior." - Life Learned Feelings

"Relax, wild one. It's not your job to be everything everyone needs and you don't have to be impressive to be loved. Stop trying so hard. Just show up and be present, fully alive, and real with the world around you." - Peace, Love and Everything Else

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
