Live What You Believe

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to get a glimpse of the little one growing inside me.

This may be my third pregnancy, but the sense of wonder and amazement at seeing this miracle be real and tangible never cease to fill me. I’m in awe at the beauty and thrill of it all. With my previous pregnancies, the feeling remained the same. And now that my two kids are no longer babies, I’m still continuously amazed by them–their personalities, the things they do, what they aspire to be…

The other day, I heard someone say to live what you believe. What do you  believe in? What do I believe in?

I believe in love, family, and motherhood. I believe in hope and having faith.

The great thing about blogging is meeting wonderful people. I love knowing how we’re all different from each other–varying backgrounds and lifestyles, beliefs, and ideas. I have a friend who’s opted to be childfree, and I think that’s awesome. It’s what she believes in, and therefore, she lives it. And that, in my eyes, is magnificent and respectable.

I have another awesome friend who’s into feminism, paganism, and she’s a strong supporter of gay rights. I adore her because she knows who she is, knows what she wants, and she lives what she believes in.

And of course, who can forget my dear friend who, I hope, may find the guy or the girl of his dreams someday. Life is full of many possibilities. Life is full of many miracles.

Live what you believe. Pursue your dreams. Know what’s important to you and fight for it.

If writing sings through your soul, despite the fact that you don’t have an agent or have received countless rejection letters, keep on writing. Believe that this is what you want to be, believe in who you are. Because if you don’t, no one else will.

  1. My husband and I were having a conversation thay kind of intersects with whay you are talking about. He took a leadership training class where he learned that as a leader the first two things you need are a strong sense of self and someone you trust completely. When then expanded to life and writing.

  2. Amazing pic – such a tiny little baby! My code for living is to be true to myself and to always do my best – not create miracles, just to do my best! Also, I was once told never to say no to an opportunity of any kind and I generally live by that too. You never know where it will lead!

  3. Congrats on the new little one! That's wonderful.Yes, we should live what we believe. There we find our passion and happiness.

  4. I totally agree..through blogging and twitter, I've met such wonderful people, you and the other fellow goats are at the top of the list. 😉 I love how this wonderful community of people I've found live all over the place, but we all love and support each other in our writing and in our lives. So happy for you! You can already see it's little legs forming! Truly, a miracle every time. 🙂

  5. Late to the party, because life has been crazy–but I love this post and I love you for being so accepting and supportive of the people you care about. You are a good one.Good luck with baby brain! I think it seems perfectly normal. I mean, you're only GROWING A WHOLE PERSON. No big. 🙂

  6. Such a lovely and inspirational post! Pregnancy agrees with you, sparkly girl. But of course, you're inspirational always. That's what drew me to you in the first place. 🙂 You know what's really cool? The fact that I'm pretty sure I know at least two of the friends you're talking about up there, and claim them as friends of my own.
