What Do You Believe In?

In search of some writing inspiration, I just found this site that has an "imagination prompt generator", which basically gives you ideas of things to blog about.  The prompt I got was What do you believe in?

I believe in God.  He is my Light and my Love.

I believe in the power of dreams.  I believe that God often puts our deepest dreams in our hearts as a way to direct our paths.

I believe in the power of art and beauty to nourish the human spirit.

I believe in waiting for the right love to come into your life.  I also believe in looking for it!

I believe in treading lightly on one another's hearts. People are far more sensitive than they let on.

I believe in travel.  It is a wonderful teacher and a fabulous way to expand your world!

What a wonderful post! I couldn't have said it better. I believe in all of what you have said as well.

I might also add that:

I believe in serving one's community. If you serve your community, hopefully your community will serve you. I know I'm being way too "King Arthur-ish" in my beliefs, but that's how I feel :)

I believe that having pets enhances a person's life tenfold. Pets teach us how to have patience, love, and responsibility. Most of all, they are our companions and our first babies :)

I believe that friendship has no barriers and does not discriminate between one's age, gender, culture, religion, etc.

I believe that a couple can be very different, but the fundamental beliefs must be shared. I grew up Catholic and Hubby United Church. Though very different, in essence, we're both Christians. We attend services at his church. Our denominations are the least of our differences. He's country, I'm city. He's as white Anglo-Saxon as can be and I'm as mixed as can be (Spanish-Filipina-Caribbean-Chinese). I think it's beautiful how all of these different aspects of the two of us can be harmonized.

Sorry for such a LONG comment! :) This is such a great post!

Thanks for leaving a post on our blog. :) I'm excited to read more about your past two years. It looks like you have found the man of your dreams!

You have wonderful "beliefs." Mine are not too far off from yours.

I believe in Faith. Regardless of what it is. Faith in a higher being or faith in one's own ability. It could be even Faith in others. As long as someone has Faith in something, they have something to work toward and look forward to.

I believe in truth. Nothing is more irritating to me than knowing someone is lying to my face and ears. I would much rather have the not so great truth than anything fake someone can offer.

I am also a hardcore believer of travel as you are...and basically for the same reasons. I think most of what is learned in life is from other people. There is no better way to experience other people than getting out in the world!

So, just a few. Great topic!
