i believe in following your heart & throwing caution to the wind.
i believe in surrounding yourself with positive people that love you, for you. if people bring you down and/or display undesirable morals & values, get rid of 'em.
i believe in southern pride. not necessarily the whole stars & bars deal but that southern women have the strength of a category 5 hurricane, a glass of sweet tea can mend a broken heart, we protect our family, & we love our friends with every ounce in us.
i believe in love. it's what makes this whole ride worthwhile.
i believe in laughing at yourself.
i believe in taking the high road. it can be hard as hell to do sometimes, but you'll never regret doing the right thing.
i believe in having friends that are in their 70's & 80's.
i believe in fairy tales. your story may not look like one in the beginning or feel like one during hard times, but one day it all becomes clear.
i believe in "me" time.
i believe in having an extra glass of wine. yes, it may lead to a headache the next day, but the fun & memories are always worth it.
i believe that working out is better than any couch a therapist can offer.
i believe that Saved By The Bell is still the best television show ever created.
i believe in not worrying about what other people may think. as dr. Seuss put it-"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
i believe in turning small moments into celebrations. job promotions, anniversaries, losing that last 5 lbs.
i believe in hand written notes. emails & texting have allowed for a complete loss of personal connection.
i believe in home cooked meals. whether you are creating a special dinner for a group of friends, preparing a casserole for a family that has lost a loved one/going through a hard time, or making a dessert to surprise your sweetheart with, it touches the heart.
i believe in making time for friends. whether it is a lunch date or an after work cocktail, picking up the phone & letting that person know that you are thinking of them & want to spend time together speaks volumes.
i believe in having champagne on tuesdays.
i believe that if you are going to do something, do it at 100%.
i believe in over-using the words 'i love you'.
i believe in believing in yourself. none of us are perfect, none of us are flawless, none of us love the way we look 365 days a year; however, i believe that you have to know who you are, what you like/don't like, what your good qualities are, what you can offer others, & what you love about yourself. i believe that once you know what lies inside of yourself, you can do anything you put your mind to & there is no obstacle that is too big. i believe in believing in yourself.
