  1. Oh boy -hard ones for me. I think I try to believe that everyone, deep down is good, but the older I get, the less I believe that anymore.

  2. To be true- my family loves one another, our family is strong, as a family we can succeed
    To be false- that is a tough one!

  3. Your beliefs will definitely guide you in life. It’s best to continue believing positively!

  4. I believe that what most people call God is actually Science. I believe that there is nothing more amazing than a child learning something. I believe that most people are not educated enough – we should all be professional students.

  5. This is so lovely. You have a way with words.

  6. Brett Martin (@brettbmartin)

    i love your positive messages you share. even if i can’t write a haiku, i can appreciate the messages

  7. Tess @SixFeetUnderBlog

    This is so nice. It’s nice to try to see good in others.

  8. karenssoiree

    This is wonderful. Love this positive inspiration!

    I once believed that working hard pays off but life has taught me that in every case this is not true. I believe that you create your own happiness. I believe that it is important to live in the moment, but do not forget the past and prepare for the future.

  10. You definitely have a way with words…beautiful. And I appreciate the pictures that you find to display with the words. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Your haikus are always thought provoking. I think that as human beings we all crave the feeling of being appreciated and also loved.

  12. Liz (@blueviolet)

    I believe in living a positive life and eliminating negativity and poisonous relationships.

  13. You have such great poetry. I look forward to your posts each day :)

  14. Virginia Higgins

    Thought provoking. I, too, believe that life is a cornucopia of gifts.

  15. Rachée Fagg (@sayitrahshay)

    These are beautiful words. I believe that there has to be some good in all people.

  16. I needed this post today. Lately I’ve been wanting things I do not have when I truly need to appreciate those that I do. Thank you.

  17. This is a fun prompt!! I love the opening quote. If we don’t feel appreciated by those around us, it can lead to resentment and a self-inflicted loss of value…until we remember who we are. :)

  18. Toni Patton

    I am with you. I fully believe we need love touches, they are so important. Your writing is beautiful!

  19. I just love your posts. You are so creative!

  20. Very good post – so often we forget the gifts we have in life. I love your post – they remind me to look around and rejoice. Have a blessed day! :)

  21. I believe that negative thoughts/words will cause a negative happening in your life. I believe that God has given us the answers in His Book, and I believe that I need to remember what really matters, and what will just pass by!

  22. I believe in God, my kids, and my loyalty. I’m not sure what I find to be false… hmm… that’s hard!

  23. Debra Fazio-Rutt

    I agree, we all need to feel a loving touch everyday. It’s a beautiful sentiment to think of life as a bunch of daily gifts.

  24. More amazing quotes and words that make perfect sense and sound like how I lead and live my life! Happy Thursday!

  25. Krystal (@KrystalS)

    I love your beliefs! Life is an extraordinary ride.

  26. That first haiku means a lot right now. My little man has been feeling unappreciated lately with the business of everything and I need to take more time out to show him how much he is appreciated.

  27. Dina Demarest (@dinade)

    Beautiful words and I absolutely love the 2 on the swing. I believe!

  28. I love Haikus. “I Believe” definitely resonates with my personal beliefs.

  29. Desiree Morris

    I love Haikus. The Haiku “I believe” definitely resonates with what I personally believe in.

  30. Shell Feis (@NotQuiteSusie)

    I love that Epictetus quote! I definitely agree that it’s so important to be grateful for what you have.

  31. I believe in Jesus Christ, my husband and my kids. I don’t believe the lie that God doesn’t love certain people. He loves everyone!

  32. robyn donnelly

    I don’t know much about Haikus but it sounds interesting.

  33. LOVE, this! “I believe life is A cornucopia of gifts”, may be my most favorite quote. Life IS a cornucopia of gifts.
