I believe that there is a common thread that runs through each of us and if we find it and tug on it eventually it will bring us all closer together.
I believe in many things that I have never seen but know that they are because if I stop for a moment and close my eyes I can feel them.
I believe that life is not always fair, people we love die or leave us but I also believe that just because it is not fair does not mean it is not still amazing.
I believe that I am the only one that can determine if I will be happy or unhappy.
I believe in burning my candles, wearing my nicest pajamas, using my good towels and wearing my favorite cologne every day because each day I am alive is an occasion to celebrate.
I believe that God loves me because of the essence of who he is, not because of things I do or do not do, have or do not have or the amount of money I possess.
I believe in rejoicing each day I grow older because the alternative is dying.
I believe there are blessings and miracles everywhere if I can remember to stop and look for them.
I believe that just because you can doesn’t mean you have to.
I believe the world would be a better place if people would replace gossip with meaningful conversations, give up a job and find a passion, turn off reality television and pick up a book and give up thinking we already have all the answers instead be fearless and ask ourselves really hard questions.
I believe that each new day I wake up is another opportunity to become who I have already decided I want to be.
I believe that I will touch the hearts of those I am meant to touch just as I have been touched by those who were meant to touch me.
I believe that we were not put on this earth to settle for being ordinary.
I believe that everyone can be happy if they take the time to determine what makes them happy and then include it in their lives.
I believe all that matters in the end is that you were loved and that you loved others.
May you and your families know love and joy not only at the holidays but all year through and may you be blessed with the gift of knowing what you believe because that is what makes life more beautiful everyday!
