As We Think, So We Are
By Mona Lease

Hi, all!! Either I've always had my head somewhere else - studying, freezing produce, etc - or, this has been a bad year. For the sake of argument - I'm going to say it's been a bad year.

Spring started out ok and summer came - I think. It got too cold at night and the tomatoes did not grow rightly. Oh - they turned red...looked like a tomato...tasted like a tomato. But the insides of most tomatoes were hard - not a lot of the "goop" that supports the seeds so you can dry them and grow tomatoes the following year. And I think that describes how the people I've been speaking with feel. We look ok on the outside. The inside is another story. I submit the following to you. Maybe we can get our inside "softened" before the holidays.  

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built; not what we got, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character; and not our success but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love. - Power of Positivity

Always end the day with a positive thought, no matter how hard things were. Tomorrow is a fresh opportunity to make it better. - Power of Positivity

Sometimes you just have to shut out the world, close your eyes...and turn the music up. - Peace, Love, and Everything Else

When I say I love you more, I don't just mean I love you more than you love me. I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us. I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than distance between us. I love you more than any obstacle could ever try and come between us. I love you the most. - Couple Goals

No one notices the tears. No one notices your sadness. No one notices your pain. But they all notice your mistakes. - Useful Gen

We all have times when life feels hard, when we're frustrated and tired and just want to hide away. If that's you right now..DON'T WORRY. Every caterpillar has to rest to become a butterfly and you'll soon find your wings again. In the meantime, let your Angels wrap you in theirs. You are so loved. - Halos and Horns Fun Page

Sometimes our lives have to be shaken up completely, changed and rearranged to relocate us to the place we're meant to be. - Michael Baisden Live

Some days you have to create your own sunshine. - Power of Positivity

Always stay true to yourself. Some people will like it, some people won't. Life goes on. - Chance Carter Romance

Open-minded people do not impose their beliefs on others. They just accept all of life's perspectives and realities, doing their own thing in peace without judgement. - Peace, Love, and Everything Else

I have been broken. I have known hardship and I have lost myself. But here I stand, still moving forward, and growing stronger each day. I will never forget the harsh lessons in my life. They made me stronger. - Unknown...Halos and Horns Fun Page

I hope the days come easy, and the moments pass slow, and each road leads you where you want to go. - Peace, Love, and Everything Else

As the night gets dark, let your worries fade. Sleep peacefully knowing you've done all you can for today. - Peace, Love, and Everything Else

Remember two things you will never have to chase: True Friends and True Love. - Haloes and Horns Fun Page

I officially resign from adulthood. Decisions will be made using the Eenie, Meenie, Minie, Moe method and arguments will be settled by sticking out my tongue. I'll be at recess if you need me. - Peace, Love, and Everything Else

Day is over, night has come. Today is gone, what's done is done. Embrace your dream through the night. Tomorrow comes with a whole new light. - 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
