about me

I Believe

I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. I think about it every night and day…

Can you honestly say I believe and not follow up with the lyrics? I think not. There are so many things that I believe in. These are just a few…


I believe in puppy breath.

I believe in treating people the way that you want to be treated.

I believe in second chances.

I believe that a trip to Sephora can cure the blues.

I believe that your mom can be your best friend.

I believe in love.

I believe laughter is the best medicine.

I believe that hearing an audible dog yawn may be my favorite noise.

I believe in iced coffee.

I believe in smiles.

I believe that you should not judge others.

I believe in girls night.

I believe in game night.

I believe in binge watching TV shows.

I believe getting lost in a book is a great activity no matter your mood.

I believe in looking at the stars.

I believe in a hug after a rough day.

I believe that lavender or eucalyptus smelling things can greatly reduce stress.

I believe in pushing through even when you want to give up. (Hello, running.)

I believe in real moments over staged photos.

I believe if you don’t have anything nice to say, then you probably shouldn’t say anything at all.

I believe that only you control the power of your actions.

I believe in retail therapy.

I believe in you.

I believe in myself.

What do you believe?

    I believe you’re the coolest ever — more than just my blogging bestie, a real life bestie. I also believe that one day we WILL do all those things we’ve talked about. I believe that one pretty strongly. 🙂

    Pushing through when you want to give up – one I need to believe in a little more strongly! And I agree that less pretty photos mean more if what’s happening in them is genuine.

    I believe that I needed to see this today. Just as a reminder of how one positive and encouraging person can spawn a multitude to reach out to others with the same kind of kindness, happiness and joy. It’s the ripple effect! Love it.

    LOVE. This is such a great post! And yes – I automatically follow up that saying with those lyrics. How could you not?! The list you have makes me realize we’re basically the same person. The beliefs that are ringing true for me today are the iced coffee, dog yawns and retail therapy. I blame the rainy day here…

  • Reply Erin LFF May 19, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    I WILL Be singing that all day long now– thank you 😉 Heck yes to real moments- that is for sure!!! Who wants to be fake or staged or ‘perfect’ ?? Not me! I believe in game nights, queso dip and hugs forever!
