30 Blogs: What you believe

Oh, Lord. Get ready for a novel, folks. I'm going to turn this post into a complete political rant. ARE YOU READY to have me talk your ears off on my beliefs on health care, the housing crisis, GM, abortion,  illegal immigration and sb 1070, and the unemployment extension?

......I didn't think so. I had you going for a second, maybe? I will save those thoughts for the book I write some day titled "Staying Put" (kind of an antonym to Sarah Palin's *Going Rogue*.....)

Anyways, so here are a few of things that I BELIEVE: (some more serious than others)

I came up with this list while I was on my boring 12 mile run this morning. Yes, I said boring. It was.

  • I believe in God. And I believe in the power of prayer.
  • I believe family and husband (who is my family) bring me more joy than anything.
  • I believe Pinot Noir is better than Cabernet Sauvignon.
  • I believe you can take the cheapest, shittiest cut of beef and make it taste delectable with a few hours of red wine vinegar or lime-marinating.
  • I believe we all have a plan, a journey, a destination, and a purpose. It may come early that we discover this - it may come very late in life we discover this. But if we all live with this belief we can find peace.
  • I believe that scales are stupid, idiotic, numerical devices that should only be used in hospitals for monitoring fluid balance ect. Beautiful women with great minds and souls shouldn't waste their time on those silly things.
  • On that note.....I believe eat well, exercise, choose to be happy, work hard, play hard, & live joyfully - don't let numbers decide how you feel about your life! (that's including scales, salaries, $$$ etc)
  • I believe that a little wit and a lot of knowledge can take you almost anywhere you want to go.
  • I believe music has the ability to bring out every emotion a human is capable of feeling!
  • I believe we can learn a lot from children - and their positive take on life.
  • I believe hiking, going for a run, taking a bike ride, or long brisk walk outdoors can uplift anyone's spirits!
  • I'm starting to believe (or realize) that life goes really fast! And that I need to take in and savor every day...and not spend too much time stressing & worrying.

I also believe scales are stupid, idiotic devices - or have been turned into that by our society! I own one but I avoid it at all costs, just check in once ever 3-4 weeks for maintenance ;) I feel bad for the people who feel the need to weigh EVERY SINGLE DAY and obsess over it. That's no way to live!

Whew, clearly we both have really strong beliefs about SCALES of all things! Ha

I LOVE that you said this!! (And that Amber feels the same way!!) Too bad everyone didn't feel this way so that we could stop with this totally skewed idea of what's beautiful.

Great post!

Yep, I agree - scales are dumb. I don't own one. I go by how my clothes feel. I will get on the scale at the gym occasionally just to see what I am at, but I think it only tells one side of the story...

Lots of great things on this list!

I was a tad bit worried when I read your opening paragraph but your list was amazing!

Haha man, I was kind of interested to hear your political beliefs haha.

I agree with lots of your beliefs! I was trying to figure out a way to say your music belief in my beliefs but I think I gave up- you put it well :)
