Wednesday List #34: Things I Believe

It’s been a while since I did a list. I hope you enjoy this one.

  1. That a pet softens a household. I recommend having more than one because they, like us, need company.
  2. That the only truly bad run is the one that didn’t happen. Except where a run turned into a walk. Walks are equally good.
  3. That working towards something that seems unlikely or impossible is a great way to live.
  4. That no one loves me more than my mom and dad. No one.
  5. That no one has the power to hurt me more than my mom and dad. No one.
  6. That faith that causes us to judge others is misguided. And yes, I do recognize the judgment in that very statement.
  7. That a thoughtful note is a better gift than anything that can be purchased. Such a note is personal and increases in value over time.
  8. That travel is worth every penny. That includes international travel, domestic travel, or travel an hour away to a neighboring town.
  9. That it’s important to have six months’ to a year’s worth of cash readily available in case something goes wildly wrong.
  10. That the best friends are those who pick up the next conversation like no time has passed, regardless of how much actually has.
  11. That everyone needs to hear that they are doing a good job.
  12. That contacting a teacher from years back to tell her what a difference she made is time well spent. Regular communication with that teacher is even better.
  13. That it is possible to have too much stuff. Even books. The book part is a new belief for me.
  14. That time spent writing, whether it’s journaling, blogging, writing for publication, or writing random poems and words for kicks, is time well spent. It’s therapeutic even.
  15. That doing life with someone isn’t always easy, but it is always worthwhile.
  16. That sunflowers are the most beautiful flower, especially the little, lone random one that bloomed after a field of them were planted with care by a most gentle heart.
