As I said Monday, I joined an online blogging community that sends out a newsletter each month with blog prompt suggestions. This week, the prompt is 10 things that I believe, and I think it is a good idea. I feel like I have some pretty strong convictions, and I want to take the time to share them with you.
I Believe in Jesus
This has to be my number one belief because this is the one that matters most to me. Without Him, I am lost and will remain lost. Jesus is my rock and my guide, and I believe that in order to get where I am going and do what I am suppose to accomplish, I need Jesus in my life.
I Believe in Love
This is also super important, because in today's time, we need to believe in love. I see love every day, not only in my relationship with Joshua, but my interactions with different individuals. In today's society, we read messages of hate everywhere, but it is important to close your mind to all of that, and see the love that is radiating in the stories around you. That love it going to send your places!
I Believe in a Well-Read Woman
First off, I love to read, so I might be bias. My favorite Disney movie was always Beauty and the Beast, because the Beast totally gave Belle a library (a symbol of true love). Some of my favorite stories are classic novels like Frankenstein and Dracula, but I also believe that as long as you are reading, you are learning. As long as you are learning, you are becoming a stronger person. Josh may laugh at me reading all the time, but he definitely encourages me to continue reading, and learning and growing.
I Believe in Cookie Dough as a Cure for Anything
Yes, cookie dough! Best. Thing. Ever. For heartbreak, heartache, headache, flu, life, anything. I crave it, and I will even settle if it is part of my ice cream! Cookie dough saves lives every day!
I Believe that Every Woman Needs One True Friend
My grandmother and mother always say that if you have one true friend at the end of your life, then you have lived a successful life. I believe this whole heartedly. I have friends and acquaintances, but I have very few true friends that would drop everything to be there for me in a moment's notice. Ironically, one of my best friends is Joshua's best friend. He is the only person I know that I can call from hours away, and ask for a stupid favor (i.e. break into my parent's house to get my little sister's car keys, go make sure my mom is okay and safe until the highway patrol gets there, etc.) and he does it. If the apocalypse breaks out and I can't get to Joshua, he is my first go to! Friendships change over time, so if at the end of your time you still have a friendship that has changed with you, then you did well!
I Believe the Day Doesn't Start Until Your Coffee is Brewed
Coffee starts every morning for me, and that is a wonderful way to begin the day. When coffee is shared, that is an even better beginning to the day! The perfect beginning? Sharing coffee and sipping from a favorite mug! So put on the coffee, invite your friends, and share a warm mug of tasty coffee!
I Believe that Heated Car Seats are a Must
Does this have to be explained??? Warm butt. Cold outside. Life is sweeter with a "hiney heater!"
I Believe that Everyone Needs at Least One Show to Binge Watch
I am a chronic binge watcher. I binged on ten seasons of Grey's Anatomy one summer. I just got finished binging on nine seasons of Criminal Minds. Everyone needs one show to sit down and mindlessly enjoy.
I Believe that I am the Most Blessed Woman in the World
Joshua is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I am truly blessed to marrying such a wonderful man! Seriously! He supports and encourages me, and he is always my #1 fan! I couldn't ask for more, and as long as he is by my side, I can do anything and everything!
I Believe that Life is Always Worth Living
No matter how hard life is, it is always worth getting through. No matter where you are in the world, your life will always matter to the people around you. You touch an unknown amount of lives in your time on Earth, and you will never know the full impact you have on others. Your life matters to me, and to God, therefore it is always worth living!
Like I said, let me know!
