I came up with the prompt Things I know and thought it would be easy to write! When it came down to it it wasn’t. Because what do we really know for sure, 100 %? Gaaah! Not much really. Hardly that we exist if being philosophical… We don’t even know if we will be alive next year! With this feeling I really had to fight myself to get down a short list on paper…

List prompt #7: Things I know
I hope writing this list will be fun, and easier, for you. Because of course there is a lot of things I know, I know! I guess it was because I wanted to write down something profound that it took me so long to write th list. Being profound is really hard, at least when you try to hard. :-)
Anyway, here is my list:
I know that
- over-thinking things is bad for you
- not thinking things through is also bad
- talking to a friend (about what you need to think through) helps
- sometimes when all that thinking doesn’t help at all you should follow your gut instinct
- sometimes the only thing I truly know is that I am ignorant
So, question now is: what do you know? Please join us in our creative list-making adventure!
Use this button if you want to play along with us and link to me or Tammy. Next Saturday well post the next list prompt! Here’s what you do: Just create your list and pop back to this post and add your link in the comments. You can link to a blog post or to your uploaded photo at Flickr. You can add the list any time this week or later, I read all incoming comments and will come visit even if you post your list next month!
Hanna, Yes, I get it. I tend to dwell on the negative also, but it is art that helps me balance that out with positive thoughts, colors, words. A thoughtful list for you this week.
I love this idea and will definitely be joining in the next one! I live through lists so this will be a nice extension!
yes. i love to get in too <3
