I Believe…

I believe in the power of love. The love that makes miracles happen. The passionate love that forgives all. The love that sparks spontaneously, the one that just kind of happens.

I believe in celebrating friendships and cherishing those that have made a significant difference on my journey. I am fortunate to have a few close friends who know me inside out, the good and the bad. I can be my true self with the friends that surround me and most importantly, trust that they will always offer their perspectives when I stumble.

I believe that smiles are contagious. The smiles that make you want to hope and believe. The smiles that turn into laughter while you mingle away with friends. I believe in the laughter that makes my stomach and cheeks hurt and at the same time makes tears fall out of my eyes. That laughter is sometimes the best medicine and can cure my worst worries.

I believe in the art of embracing change. The change that people resist but the innate beauty of it can ignite life-long learning. The change that is purely made when you accept and forgive mistakes.

I believe that when I expect someone to act a certain way, it is only a desire. A desire that may never come true. So instead, I accept that I have no control over someone else’s personality or beliefs and I will just let it be.

I believe that just like birds, I can fly and touch the sky. I believe that the obstacles in my life are really blessings in disguise that foster my personal and spiritual growth. I believe in working diligently to achieve my goals and being passionate about my unique talents. The truer the passion, the more fulfilling life is.

I believe in dreaming the dreamiest dreams, the wishes my heart makes. Sometimes making these dreams a reality is like the icing on a cake.

I believe that sometimes indulging in guilty pleasures can be a marvelous thing — like eating an entire box of Thin Mints in one day (yes, all 40 cookies!), taking a simple Kit-Kat break and gorging on delicious strawberry shortcake is just okay. That spending a fortune on shoes, clothes and purse shopping may be unsettling, but very pleasing. That sometimes I just want to be overly lazy and taking the day off is simply just needed.

I believe that there is a Higher Power. That there is a part of God within me. That He sends the angels right down to earth to help me when I need Him and when my heart lacks faith. That my truest angels are those that I am constantly surrounded by — my family and my friends. They encourage me to discover the side of me that I am sometimes unmindful of and help me make the most out of my everyday life.  

I believe in YOU. I believe in ME. I believe that the world is a better place because of the abundant kindness in our hearts. That together, we make a world of difference with unspoken words and thoughtful gestures, those that touch someone’s heart and bring sunshine into someone’s life.

    Beautiful post. This is the very kind of energy, way of seeing ourselves and the world. And this approach not only makes life and each moment in it more precious, but can actually unite us, because despite all the little murmurs and differences we may have, life and everything thats part of it, including ourselves have beauty which can easily be appreciated.

      Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your beautiful words. It is easy to get caught up in life’s little distractions and forget that these very things make life so precious and worth living. Beauty can be found within each of us if we embrace our differences, love our uniqueness and just take some time to notice the magnificence of each moment with which we are blessed.
