What Do You Believe?

There has been such a lovely response to the "I Believe" post that I was hoping you guys would share what you believe and we could create our own list.

These are just some of the inspiring emails & comments I've received since that post:

I believe...
that the person you have to have the most faith in is yourself.

I believe...

life is what you make of it.

I believe...
 that every day is what you make of it and your thoughts are the most powerful aspect of your being.

I believe...
 that some people come into your life to realize how shitty the ones already there are.

I believe...
when you think life gets too hard to go on, you can always muster up enough courage to keep going.

I believe...
that life isn't what it seems, it's more.

I believe...
that lies are quick, but the truth has real endurance.

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

Share what you believe with the rest of us in the comments section and lets create our own "I Believe" list together.

    I truly believe that life is what you make of it. If you are constantly positive and think on the bright side your day will always be better. In the past I have stressed over so many things that seemed to matter so much at the time but it all heals and becomes better.

  86. I believe that each second that has ticked is in the past and therefore does not need to affect the present.
    I believe it's important to look at the beauty that's all around you every day because that beauty is why we are all here.
    I believe that we are all one. With eachother, with the life all around us, with the Earth, the Moon and the Sun, with the Universe. Treat everyone and everything with the same love and respect you treat yourself. Make sure that's alot..
    I believe you must love and respect yourself before you can expect others to truly love and respect you..
    I believe there is no such thing as bad or evil, bad is only a perception, 'evil' people are either misguided or misunderstood.
    I believe you can do and be anything you want and you are the only one with that power.
    I believe if you want your life to be full of happiness you must first find it inside yourself and then share it with everyone around you, including those you don't yet know.
    I believe it is possible to brighten a stranger's day even more than that of a friend.
    I believe that anything shared, no matter who you share it with, tastes so much sweeter than when kept to yourself (and I'm not just talking about food).
    I believe that if you want to be better person you already are, you just need to realise it.
    I believe that life is the most precious thing we have and must always be treated as such, whether it is our own, or somebody else's.
    I believe there are no such things as 'weeds'.
    I believe that worrying about the past or the future is a pointless waste of emotional energy as neither truly exist.
    I believe no one is 'old', wrinkles are wisdom lines, and if you were 10 years younger you wouldn't be the beautiful person you are right now.
    I believe that living for the moment makes for a happier, freer human being. Slow down a little and cherish what you have right this second and the second that follows will be even happier.
    Lots of love. xxx
