What I Know


“All you are required to do is tell what you know.”

A friend said that, this morning. So, here is a random sampling of what I know.

  1. Coffee makes everything better.
  2. You will never know all the words in the world, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying to learn them.
  3. There are few things more disappointing that not being understood. It’s worse when that person is supposed to get you.
  4. Risks are generally worth it. Even if things turn out spectacularly wrong, you’ll learn something.
  5. There isn’t enough singing in the world. Sing every chance you get. Even if you can’t carry a tune.
  6. When in doubt, dance. Turn the music up to a ridiculous decibel, and DANCE. It might not be wise to do this when cooking dinner, but it makes cooking more fun.
  7. Love makes everyone some degree of stupid. Accept this. No one falls in love and becomes more cautious.
  8. Hearts break. Hearts mend. Sometimes, shrapnel gets left behind.
  9. Running away is never the answer.
  10. When you are too scared to say yes, that’s the moment you need to say it the most.
  11. Answers don’t fall out of the sky. You have to look for them.
  12. You cannot change what you refuse to see.
  13. Laughter helps even the heaviest heart. Failing that, coffee and cheesecake work wonders. Failing THAT, wine.
  14. Acceptance solves a multitude of ills.
  15. Being quirky is okay. This makes you unique. Just don’t eat the paste.
  16. When your world gets small, you stop growing. When you stop growing, you stop being. This is never a good thing.
  17. You cannot be all things to everyone. It’s okay to say ‘no’ sometimes.
  18. You can never have too many hugs, cupcakes, or friends.
  19. Sometimes, ‘goodbye’ is the only answer.
  20. Friends should never make you feel insecure or bad about yourself. If they do, they aren’t your friend.
  21. Taking the easy way out is never a good idea.
  22. Always say hello, goodbye, please, thank you, I love you, and I miss you. When you do, mean them.
  23. Jumping in mud puddles is still fun.
  24. You’re never too old to believe in faeries.
  25. Be present in the moment. Don’t simply take up space.
