I Believe...

We all have beliefs and opinions that shape and influence our lives; our thoughts, our choices, our actions.  The closer a belief is to our heart, the stronger and more passionate we are about it.  Oddly, despite the power our beliefs hold, we rarely take the time to consider them and what they mean to us...  After being inspired to dig deep and think about what I truly believe in...I sat down last night while Girard was watching tv and pondered on the subject...

I believe that life is too short and very unpredictable.
I believe that life can change in a blink of an eye.
I believe in stopping to smell the roses, watching the waves, and listening to the birds sing!
I believe people should go outside more.
I believe that the other end of every rainbow is in Heaven.
I believe in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I believe in guardian angels.
I believe that time does not heal all wounds…but, that with time you learn how to cope.
I believe that sorrow can not be measured – everyone grieves differently.
I believe that it is okay to cry.

I believe that forgiving someone is sometimes one of the hardest things to do.
I believe in not being so quick to judge.
I believe in not making assumptions – go to the source and clarify.
I believe that words can get you in trouble and cause a lot of unnecessary pain – think before you speak and type.
I believe that people have the right to be angry…but, not the right to be cruel.
I believe in the sayings:  “an eye for an eye…” – “what goes around comes around…” – “do unto others has you’d have done to you…”
I believe in turning your wounds in wisdom.
I believe there are many situations in life that you will never understand unless it actually happens to you.

I believe that children should be disciplined and shouldn’t get everything they want.
I believe that tough love can sometimes do a person good.
I believe that God put that itchy spot on our backs just out of our own reach…to encourage us to be nice to each other!
I believe animals have souls and that there is a special place in Heaven for them all – after all, God created them just as He did you and me…

I believe in living DAY BY DAY.
