This is what I know

I know that I am never too old to learn new things.
I know that I am imperfect.
I know that I can always change, if I choose to.
I know that love is real.
And once felt, never really goes away.
I know that time is short on this earth.
I know that there is good in every person.
I know that regardless of the weather, temperature or my geographic location, every day can be a good day.
I know that I am unique and that there will never again be another living person who is just like me.
I know that beauty, knowledge, and experience are subjective things.
I know that the family you have does not have to be the one you were born into.
I know that I am still going to get up in the morning anyway.
I know that the abilty to make art, in whatever form it is made, is the true expression of the human soul, and always a worthwhile pursuit.
I know that laughter is better than silence.
I know that occasionally, every person is alone, and that solitude can be both amazingly wonderful and excruciatingly terrible.
I know that I could be better.
I know that the feel of sunshine and wind and water are worth missing a day's work in a cubicle.
I know that words can crush a person or lift them up.
I know that friendship is worth cherishing.
I know that self portraits are good.

I just picked up my first copy of Artful Blogging and saw the article about you. I love finding new blogs, all the time and yours is now a favorite. I hope you don't mind, but this post that I read in the magazine is just what I needed and I would like to do my own list on my blog as well. I'm in a funk, perhaps because I'm a summer gal and it's ending (if that's even true here in L.A.!). I think I would feel better after a list like that. Feel free to stop by and thank you for the inspiration!
