5 Things I Believe

Switching it up a bit on this Wednesday and bringing you a light hearted post about 5 Things I Believe

1. I believe in doing unto others: They call it the golden rule. I think if you act like a jerk you will be treated like a jerk. Sure sometimes people are going to be rude but that does not mean you have to be rude back.

2. I believe in taking long walks alone: Sounds sketchy depending on what area you live in. But if you can go to a lake, or a nice walking/running path and spend an hour just thinking and walking I believe it does wonders for the soul.

3. I believe in living a healthy lifestyle: This doesn’t mean I only eat 100% healthy foods all the time and that I workout for 90 minutes a day. I just believe that being healthy is not a state of mind. You have to put in the work for a healthy lifestyle. Take a yoga class, join a gym, go run around your neighborhood, find online workouts. Eat right. But remember everything in moderation…

4. Which leads me to I believe that you should indulge every now and then: Eat that cookie because you want to! Have a glass of wine. Have the chips and queso because they taste amazing. But you know in moderation.

5. I believe in loving as hard as you can: Regardless of your friends, family or significant other love them as long and as hard as you can. Love is so powerful and so consuming. Love your friends unconditionally, do not judge their life choices. Love your family and spend time with them because life is short. Love your significant other no matter how much they may annoy you or get under your skin. Love as much and as hard and for as long as you can.

    Love all of these. I especially think that if you live your life by the Golden Rule, you can quickly (relatively anyway) figure out who deserves to be in your life and who doesn’t

  10. I completely agree with the first two. I am a very private person and spend a lot of time thinking and planning or clearing my head. Being alone helps me a lot. I also believe in the whole you reap what you sow/karma thing so I try to be as good to people as possible.

  11. Believe in living each day to it’s fullest potential, whether it’s traveling across country or reading a good book in bed. What makes you happy. Appreciating the small things as well as the big.

    Great post

  12. That you are never too old to do something you have always wanted to do. Age does not limit us!

  13. I agree with all of these, but especially #5. I think love could cure most of what ails the world.
