BUT... Having said all of that, there are a few things that I do know, completely, and without any doubt. And since I like to remind myself of those things every once in a while, I'm doing it here, so know you can know all these things too. You're welcome.
I know....that I am deeply, and unconditionally loved. By an incredible God, and by the amazing family He has given me, and by a wonderful man.
I know...that even when things seem tough, eventually, the tide will turn, and the struggle will ease. It may not ever go away completely (what is with that nonsense, by the way??), but over time, it will become at least a little easier.
I know...that music has an incredible ability to change and/or perpetuate moods.
I know...that Reese's peanut butter eggs really do taste better than just the cups.
I know...that a glass of wine and some chocolate mint cookies can, more often than not, cure whatever ails you.
I know...that exercise really does make you smarter because it makes your brain work better.
I know...that even though you can't always see it, there really is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I know...that great opportunities most often look like obstacles, and that's why
I know...that it is better to have a few quality friends than to have a whole bunch of people who may or may not be there for you when the going gets rough. Quality over quantity, people.
I know...there is incredible power in Vitamin D and that the mood lifting results you get from standing out in the sunshine is totally worth it, even if it's cold out.
What do you know?
