Who I am, is a direct result of what I believe. This blog is largely about my beliefs, what I value and what I love.
These are the things I believe to be true about the world:
I believe that change is hard, but necessary.
I believe that happiness is contagious.
I believe that chocolate is the best flavor of anything.
I believe that people make mistakes, all the time– even after they promise never to do it again.
But, I believe, that we should never stop believing that, each time they say it, they really do mean it.
I believe that what we want is not always what we need.
I believe that everybody needs boundaries.
I believe that there are few things in this life as truly breathtaking as the look of pure joy on a child’s face.
I believe that everybody has a favourite person, child, friend, teacher– even though they say they don’t.
I believe that the worst mood can be made just a little better with a slice of really good chocolate cake.
I believe that every girl needs a sister–whether it be a blood sister or a soul sister.
I believe that everybody needs somebody.
I believe that, most of the time, what you give is what you get.
I believe that time heals.
I believe that words, alone, cannot solve anything.
I believe in friendship.
I believe in everlasting love.
I believe in true love after marriage, not before.
I believe in the unseen.
I believe in angels.
I believe in miracles.
I believe in faith.
I believe that my heart is hurting right now, but that, in time, it will get better.
I believe that I’ve made many mistakes.
I believe that righting my mistakes is one of the hardest things I might ever have to do.
I believe that I am not perfect.
I believe in repentance.
I believe in forgiveness.
I believe that God is One.
And that He is All-Seeing,
I believe a lot of things.
And I believe that there is a lot that I don’t know–
(And, of course, loving)
About my heart,
And about my Creator.
But I will live my life with my heart open, with my senses awake, and with my soul alive, hoping that with the light of each day, I will learn something new that will guide my way.
