I am waiting for the sun to rise after the end of the longest night. The solstice is over and starting now, each day will be a little longer until June 21, 2011 – the summer solstice. I believe our ancestors built stone monuments to mark the sun’s passage across the sky because they needed to believe that the sun would rise and the days would lengthen and warmth would come back into their lives.
Which made me think about what I believe:
I believe that the sun will rise and the grass will grow and spring will come again – every year.
I believe that it only takes one person to start a revolution that can change the world.
I believe I can reshape my life through my thoughts and actions and be strong and healthy.
I believe that you can start with nothing and create anything that you can dream.
I believe that there is more good than evil in the world.
I believe that love is the strongest and most widely available, but woefully under-utilized, power in the universe.
I believe that the sweetest things in life cost nothing, have no calories and are all around us.
I believe that love lasts through this life and long after we are gone.
I believe that the most beautiful thing in the world is the curve of your child’s cheek.
I believe that it is, and always has been, my choice to be happy.
What do you believe?
