Yes, we often learn our most important lessons outside the classroom: The painful truth about the state of a relationship, the ugly cost of challenging authority, the sad fact that life’s colors; aren’t always rosy. Then there are those who refuse to accept these important lessons, they simply wait for the chance to teach a lesson of their own.
—  Mary Alice Young

“Yes, life is a journey. One that is much better traveled with a companion by our side. Of course, that companion can be just about anyone. A neighbor on the other side of the street or the man on the other side of the bed. The companion can be a mother with good intentions or a child who’s up to no good. Still, despite our best intentions, some of us will lose our companions along the way. And then the journey becomes unbearable. You see, human beings are designed for many things, but loneliness isn’t one of them.”

—Mary Alice Young,Desperate Housewives

And happy 53rd birthday to @strongbrenda she was also on desperate housewives (she commits suicide in the first episode, very sad.) But then narrates the show. She is in a few episodes and she cracks me up oh #maryaliceyoung humor lol I love Brenda!!!!!!!

If I could, would I tell them what lies ahead? Would I warn

them of the sorrow and betrayal that lie in store? No. From

where I stand now, I see enough of the road to understand

how it must be traveled. The trip is to keep moving forward,

to let go of the fear and the regret that slow us down and

keep us from enjoying a journey that will be over too soon.

Yes, there will be unexpected bends in the road, shocking

surprises we didn’t see coming, but that’s really the point.

Don’t you think?
