You're not as food as you think you are. Your writing is not as good as you think it is. Your friends are not as good as you think they are.
My question is thus: Does it really matter if what you think or believe and what actually is don't quite match up? Therein lies the rub. The truth? Isn't that overrated? Isn't faith and confidence and positive thinking more important than the result?
Often I feel we focus on the goal and not how we get there. Life is a journey, I want to enjoy the ride. Don't you?
These are just some of the things I've been thinking about while knitting. Yes, knitting. I started knitting a red scarf for the coming winter. I haven't knitted since my dad taught me all those years ago, when mom was knittting teddy bears to keep her mind off other sadder things. Now I'm reading The Friday Night Knitting Club and want to give knitting another go. Not bad. I still remember how to cast on and to knit plain.
