what do I know for sure?

Fortunately I've learned a few things along the way on this journey of life.
Always wear clean underwear, look someone in the eye when speaking with them, the roll belongs with the tissue coming off the top not from the underside, and always keep a spray bottle of Downy wrinkle release handy. But I think the most important truth that I have learned is that everything happens for a reason.

We may not always understand it right away or even like the way things turn out. It may take days, weeks or even years sometimes before we can look back and realize that there was a higher plan as to the way something occurred. But the reason was there whether obvious or not.

I also feel like if we are honest with ourselves we will admit that it always works out for the best and highest good. We may not have been hoping for an outcome or liked it at the time but rest assured it was the best way.

Why the sudden burst of introspection, you ask? This was our prompt for Roc's monthly journal group "what is one important thing you've learned in your life"? You can join the group or see other interpretations for this prompt here.
