Things I know for sure

While doing some reading of the Oprah kind (oh, bite me...), I realised that some of the things she knows for sure are things I, too, know and then there are things that I've discovered on the special path of Shaz. Here goes:


  1. What you put out comes back all the time, no matter what. (I really, really beleive this one!)

  2. Hot drinks should not be filled to the brim in a thermos (or else they explode and make a BIG mess).

  3. Failure is a signpost to turn you in another direction.

  4. Trust your instincts. Intuition doesn't lie.

  5. Being a mother is the hardest job on earth.

  6. Being creative is one thing but dates and bean shoots are revolting in an omelette.

  7. Doubt means don't. Don't move. Don't answer. Don't rush forward.

  8. Trouble don't last always.

  9. This, too, shall pass.

  10. Don't be scared to try the road less travelled. It is better in a 4WD drive, however.

  11. Bacon IS food of the gods.

  12. The moment between the time that you press your lips to a much-anticipated cup of coffee and the realisation that someone replaced the sugar with heaven and hell all rolled into one.

  13. That the geeky, nerdy IT role-playing Star-Wars-loving guy will actually become your husband and, ultimately, the deepest love of your life.

  14. Answering the work phone with "1-800-SPANK-ME" will not guarantee you job security.

  15. When the going gets tough, the rocks come to the surface while the wood sinks to the bottom. (I KNOW this one really well, too!)

  16. The only true biological relationship that exists in family begins with the heart.

  17. If you KNOW coconut doesn't agree with you, constantly challenging it doesn't change the outcome.

  1. #1 is one of the biggest and most important lessons in life I think. When Stevie introduced me to the Wiccan / Pagan path I began living by the motto that what we give unto the universe comes back to us by thrice return. It means more to me than material. It has everything to do with spirit and attitude and belief. If we think with a positive attitude, positive will come back to us. If we put negative, grief, darkness... into the universe that is exactly what we can expect in return. The book "The Secret" shares the same lesson. Positive... sunshine... light... love... Smiles
