I believe...


This isn't a post about my spiritual beliefs.  Just some things that I have found are very useful to life :)
Here are a few of my "beliefs":

I believe in loving and living out loud.  (Kilmarnock 2012, let me hear you HOLLA!)
I believe in pursuing your passions and following your dreams.
I believe in bear hugs.
I believe in laughing till you cry.
I believe in choosing your battles wisely and being present in every moment.
I believe in chivalry.  Hold those doors open, guys!

I believe in playing in the snow like a little kid.
I believe in reading a good book snuggled up in bed.
I believe in driving with the windows down and singing at the top of your lungs.
I believe in dessert.
I believe in finding joy by serving others.
I believe in being crazy and not caring what other people think. 

believe in surprises.
I believe in trying new things even if they scare you.
I believe in picking flowers.
I believe that a smile can turn some one's day around.
I believe that every one is beautiful.
I believe that one person can make a difference.

I go back to school in a mere 5 days!  Summer flew by!  I'm so excited to be reunited with all of my friends and can't wait to see what plans God has in store for this semester.  He always seems to do whatever I least expect.

If you could also be praying for my grandma as she just had knee replacement surgery on Tuesday.  She is still in a lot of pain.  Prayers for a quick recovery and very little pain would be great!  She is such a trooper through it all though, and I couldn't ask for a better, godly role model in my life.
