♫ Haz Monday Blues

Monday Blues? This kid’s got’m. And apparently, they’re contagious. That, or my sister has found her own reason to be bluezy. Hmmmm. Either way, because of the melancholy, I have little energy to blog.

So, I will tell you, that I keep a journal with me, literally, everywhere I go. And I don’t write in it every day, it’s not a diary, you wont find any outrageous secrets in that one, but you will find quotes. And lots of’m. I keep a running list of them. I figured I’d share some of my recent ones with you. And I want you to let me know your favorites, both from my list, and those I should add. Enjoy!

"Jealousy isn’t always bad..helps you realize feelings about things that you might not have noticed otherwise-Teh Reese

"It’s always good when you can fight with a boy and still like him afterward." -A!

"Something tells me that the first mousetrap wasn't designed to catch mice at all, but to protect little cheese 'gems' from burglars."

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Thomas Edison

"Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!"

"I am determined to bloom where I am planted no matter how rocky the ground."

"The moment we cease to change is the moment we stop living."

"There's always something waiting at the end of the road, if you're not willing to see what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there..."

"It might be hard and it will hurt, but sometimes you have to let go and put things behind you in order to get what you need out of life."

"When he kisses you he isn't doing anything else. You're his whole universe..and the moment is eternal because he doesn't have any plans and isn't going anywhere. Just kissing you...."

"I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you cant handle me at my worst, than you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe

"It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives."

"He’s so old, his toupee is going bald."

"The really happy woman is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."

Yours Truly,

I like that one from Reese, too!

Here's a few of the gems I've got stuck to my cubicle walls as reminders of what's important in this gorgeous life:

"Everything hinges upon how you look at things." - Henry Miller

"Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family or friends. We can assist them, pray for them and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes." - Jack Kornfield (this is one I think you can relate to, as you're a 'fixer' like I am!)

"Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves." - Buddha

"When we act out of our negativity, the effect is like carving it into stone: The imprint remains for a long, long time." - Genpo Metzel

"Worldy ups and downs should be treated as lightly as clouds gathering and breaking up." - Anonymous
