What Do I Know?
Copyright © by Veronica Hay
The other day something happened that really shook me up.
Something shocking and unexpected and perplexing.
It made me doubt some things that I had believed to bereal and question my own truths.
And so I asked myself what is it I really do KNOW for sure
at this point in my life and I came up with the following.
I know that gratitude will fill my bank account faster than a New York minute.
I know there really isn’t any right or wrong,
only what my own heart is telling me.
I know that a good cup of tea can solve almost every problem and if not solve it,
at least soothe it for a little while.
I know that people need love more than they need things,
but things are sometimes how they get love.
I know that when I focus with absolute determination,
I always get what I want.
I know that laughter and sunshine can restore my soul.
I know that the sight of a newly opened morning glory makes my heart sing.
I know that nothing is more fun than playing with a puppy,
except maybe playing with a dolphin.
I know that some time by myself each day makes me easier to live with.
I know that the more I learn, the more humble I become.
I know that it’s the simple things in life that bring me joy
and I can choose to be happy for no reason.
I know that things change and that can be a good thing,
even if it doesn’t appear to be at the time.
I know that out of great sadness and despair, joy can come,
if I just surrender and let go.
I know that everything tastes better outside.
I know that pansies can be very deceiving.
They are much stronger and hardier than they look and so am I.
I know that freedom is an inside job.
I know that love is the only thing we take with us when we leave
and it is all that matters in the end.
Take care and have a beautiful day.
Love and blessings, Veronica
