There are days of late when I feel as if surety about anything is impossible. Yet reading the responses to this phrase in last month’s issue of O Magazine got me thinking a bit more seriously. I realize there are some things which, for better or worse, I can assert with a degree of certainty, at least in my own experience.
So here goes:
I know that every human being needs a passion, and pursuing that passion will enrich your life in ways you never expected.
I know that it’s good to step outside of your box, to expand your horizons, and stretch your boudaries. You like yourself better when you do.
I know that moderation is the key to all things – to food, drink, work, play, and even love.
I know there’s a good reason that dog is god spelled backwards.
I know that family is the rock and foundation of every bit of happiness we have.
But I also know that friends can fill the gaps which occur in even the best of families.
I know that, in the amusement park of life, sometimes we’re on the roller coaster, but more often its the swan boats.
I know that all good things come to and end, and that this too shall pass.
I know that all things work together for good.
I know that tomorrow I’ll be sure of more than I am today.
Now tell me, what do you know for sure?
