Somewhere along the course of my telly viewing, I overheard this question posed during an interview: ‘What do you know to be true?’
I thought what a brilliant thing to explore and proceeded to ask the same of myself.
Here’s what I profess as truth-isms across my cooldeb journey of life. However, I’m still learning so I beg the option to edit at a future date.
I have God; God has me.
Kayaking in Ocracoke and God is definitely present
I do not awaken to greet a day, eat a meal or work through a challenge without dialoguing with God first. I’m also committed to lifting up momentary praise be it small, medium or large, yet always striving to remain present and cognizant.
The Rolling Stones are the best band ever.
I will become a 100-year-old and still believe this. Feel free to debate via comments because I know it’s coming.
Bo + Deb = Love.
Lake lounge and love
Man, I love my dog! My high-strung, licky-lick, beautiful Black lab son brings me peace in a hug, laughter in his antics and unconditional love in his tail wag and adoring eyes. I receive it with cognizant presence (see God connection). [Tweet “Hugging my dog brings joy to my mind, soul and being. #DogsRock”]
Now is a good state of being.
Seizing a ‘now’ moment in Phi Phi Island, Thailand
Now is about living comfortably with change and it’s about seizing the moment. Life is short so do with it what you will, warts and all. Live your own good life. When you look back with age or a heavenly presence, know that your lived experience equals a job well done.
TP rolls over and not under.
I’m not going to clarify or explain this. I’m simply going to proclaim it as something I know to be true.
Water is where it’s at.
“God’s Soup” by Bill Hamilton
Bill Hamilton is a surfer and board shaper, among many other things in life. This quote came to me via my “work husbands” Mark and Kevin, who annually and outstandingly, decorated my office for my birthday. If you are a water baby, you get it. If you aren’t, I’m sorry.

What do you know to be true? I welcome your thoughts and reflections via comments.
