Day 12-What you believe
I've been thinking about this post and how to really capture into words "what I believe".
I've decided that instead of overwhelming myself with trying to write everything, I'd just focus on a few and see where it goes. :)
Since 1995, I have lived by the belief:
everything happens for a reason.
It has become so cliche that it almost annoys me to say it anymore, but the truth of the matter is, I wholeheartedly believe it.
Everything has a purpose.
Some things I may not know or ever know.
I have faith in His purpose.
Also, ALL of the events of my life have led to me where I am.
I wouldn't change ONE thing.
Without everything being EXACTLY as it happened, then everything else would have been changed as well.
The above is very much a snapshot of who I am.
These are also the things I believe:
~Babies are a gift.
~Pregnancy from conception to delivery is miraculous. A true miracle.
~One can fall in love with another through online and telephone communication.
~All children have a right to a safe home.
~Consistency in parenting offers security to a child and security lets them know they are loved.
~The legal system is broken.
~Things are right or wrong. Not "kinda" right or "kinda" wrong.
~No two children are born into the same family.
~I cannot be the only person in a relationship to make effort and sometimes I have to let that relationship go when the effort is not reciprocated.
I'm certain this list could be miles long, but I'm stopping here. :)
I'm a passionate woman who has very strong opinions, is open minded to others and is more empathetic than sometimes is good for me.
