I Believe

I believe in the sun and stars and my lungs that fill with air; the feeling of peace that comes to me after a thunderstorm, and the warm smell of rain in the breeze before and afterwards; and the little boy angel that sits on my left broken shoulder.

I believe that life is a series of trials and errors and serendipitous moments of clarity; as well as moments of confusion, and sometimes utter despair.

I believe you cannot have one thing without the other and everything we do directly affects something or someone else; I alone can decide how I’m going to be; and I alone choose it.

I believe in holding on a little longer no matter how hard it seems; because it will get better, and quitting is for quitters.  

I believe in second chances and sometimes third ,fourth, and fifth, and knowing when enough is enough; and not being afraid to say so.

I believe in believing in me because at the end of the day, I’m all I’ve got.
