Writing this post was sort of difficult. We all believe in things that we don’t want to share with others because we’re scared it might be deemed ridiculous. I couldn’t quite get to 10 without sounding more than a little cray-cray, but I did manage to find 5 things I believe in that shouldn’t make you all want to call the men in white coats. And because I love you all so, I’m sharing them through the magic that is Galavant, sadly cancelled way way way too soon.
I’m not really that religious but I do believe that there is some sort of force that kick started it all. Call it destiny, God, aliens, or the Great Spaghetti Monster, I think there is definitely something out there bigger than ourselves. I also believe that all religions have this (as well as many other things) in common, so maybe we should all stop playing my God can beat up your God. It’s a little grade 3, isn’t it?
I never used to, but a lovely couple turned me around on this. I believe that kindness is often small. A compliment to a stranger on their awesome hair colour, helping entertain someone else’s tantrum-ing child in a supermarket, or simply asking about the day of the person scanning your groceries. Every little bit of extra kindness counts in this world.
I believe in a lot of things others would call fictional, but probably my biggest one is that I really believe that dragons once roamed the earth. It’s amazing to me that so many different civilisations have a version of a flying fire breathing reptile. It has to be based on something, doesn’t it? I SUPER BELIEVE IN YOU TAD COOPER!!
The Children Are Our Future
Laugh it up, fuzzball – it’s not just a line from a sappy 80’s ballad. Some days I look at my son and think about all the things he could do with his life and who he might become and it leaves me in awe. He has a world of possibilities at his feet and that amazes me. Watching these tiny people develop their sense of self and their individuality is probably the most incredible part of parenting. It’s also the scariest – you never know how they will turn out until it’s too late.
It took me a long time to get to the point where I can say that I truly do believe in myself. I might have moments of doubt but by and large, I like the person I’ve become and have confidence in my abilities. My thirties has been an incredible decade for me so far – I’m so much more myself than I ever have been. I no longer edit my dorkiness for fear that others won’t like me, because who has the energy to be someone else every day of their life?!!
