Saying the obvious

It’s important to say the obvious.

Because obvious is not always obvious to everyone.

Because obvious is only obvious at a certain time, in our lives and in a day. Something always comes along and obscures it.

Because the obvious will always slip into oblivion without timely reminders. Like “you should write down how grateful you are each day because it’s good for you and those around in so many ways.”

Because we only arrive at the obvious when we have first seen something and thought about it with clarity. Perhaps through writing daily.

Because things of a trade only become obvious when we come close to being masters of that trade. And not everyone is a master yet.

So for these reasons and more, we must not be afraid to say the obvious. We must instead do it so that we can grow, and so can others.
