10 Things I know for sure ~ December 30th

If you read Oprah magazine, you know that at the end of the mag she always writes about one thing she knows for sure. Today, as the year winds down and I take a few moments to reflect, I've put together my own list of what I have come to know.

10 Things I know for sure:

1. You can’t force change, but you can allow it.

2. I am truly my own best friend.

3. Happiness is an inside job, every single time.

4. The more I care for myself, the more I can care for others.

5. Action isn’t everything; attitude is.

6. There are little things to be enjoyed in every single day.

7. I get better results when I play at life than when I work at it.

8. There is a gem of hope and joy that can be found in each traumatic or sorrowful life experience.

9. If you weren’t born into a big family, you can make a family of your friends.

10. Whatever you’re wanting in life, you have to believe it to see it.

Love the sentiments...but especially the picture of you and your mom and dad. Dad's birthday was 2 days ago and, as is probably true with you, he and Mom are never far from my thoughts. Happy Happy New Year cousin! Love, Liz
