Things I Know

Sometimes it feels like I don't know enough. I feel as my children get older, I know less and less. There was a time I felt brilliant, like I could take on the world. Now I can only take on my tiny portion of the world but these are the things I know for sure:

1.) Nobody can make you happy until you make yourself happy. But if you step on some ones heart or feelings to do's almost a sure fire way of null and voiding the happiness you seek.

2.) You can apologize for things you do and say. But actions speak louder than words. If you aren't truly sorry, it will be evident.

3.) Marriage is a two person job. Period. If there are more than two people involved in your marriage? It's not going to work. Ever hear the saying too many cooks in the kitchen? That applies here.

4.) Sometimes going home isn't so great. Even when you are an adult. Sometimes it just reminds you of why you left and were happy to go.

5.) Money doesn't buy happiness but it can make you content. But if it's the only thing you look for in another person....that content feeling will only last so long.

6.) When people ask for advice, they are asking you to tell them what they already know. But don't be surprised if they don't take the advice. When you know something in your heart...doing something about it, is hard.

I am sure I know a lot more things, even if I feel knowledge slipping away from me. For now this will have to do. What about you? What do you know?
