    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.

      I’m with you on this one Robin. I’ve always believed that humans are inherently good…. Over the years, and recently, I’ve been reminded again and again that not all subscribe to that dictum. TY! 🙂

      I agree with Robin. The older I get and the more people I meet, I realize, sadly, that not all people are good. Many of them are just plain mean.

    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!

      Aimee, after I read your comment, I looked at the prompt again. I completely missed the false belief prompt… Will add more shortly. TY! 🙂

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

      TY Kecia and I send blessings for same to you! You know, I’ve found that choosing to look for the positive in situations especially downers helps me move on.

    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.

    • 19/03/2014 4:17 pm

      I believe in God and divine blessings/intervention/prayer. I also believe that science has its place. Yes, we all need to develop a beginner’s mind. Lifelong learning keeps us fresh. TY!

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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. 🙂

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

  19. 20/03/2014 5:57 am

    I just love your posts. You are so creative!

  20. 20/03/2014 6:09 am

    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. 20/03/2014 7:05 am

    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. 20/03/2014 8:47 am

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

    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. 20/03/2014 9:33 am

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

    I love your beliefs! Life is an extraordinary ride.

    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.

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

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

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

  31. 21/03/2014 7:41 am

    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!

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