I believe in simplicity. I believe in feelings and family, friendship and fidelity, forgiveness and fortitude. I believe in miracles, meditation, motherhood and make believe and that music is the only real magic this world has ever seen. I believe in concocting and consuming colorful cocktails and fussing over and feasting on fabulous food. I believe in living out loud. I believe in laughing until your face hurts and loving until your heart breaks. I believe in behaving boldly and when warranted, badly, taking bubble baths and being barefoot. I believe in poetry, puppies and playing in the park. I believe in seeking without ceasing that which sings to my soul and strengthens my spirit. I believe in dancing in the rain and digging in the dirt. I believe in honest expression and the golden rule. I believe in Nature and naps and that naïveté is sometimes necessary. I believe in goodness and gratitude, grit and grace. I believe in unity and the power of the universe. I believe in being authentically awesome. I believe in being better today than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. I believe in challenges and change and growing pains. I believe in the inherent worth of every creature, being and life force on this planet. I believe in honoring the individual journeys and paths of people whether I understand them or not. I believe in letting people live their truth and trusting that it’s right for them. I believe in lifting up and letting go. I believe that death is just as sacred an experience as birth and that it is never, ever an end.

Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.

Read the Printed Word!

I’m always forgetting the power of one life.

Of one voice.

Of one heart.

Time and time again I’m shown how completely we are all connected and how we each have the power to impact one another in a myriad of ways and how when that power comes from the best parts of our hearts and we wield it in love, amazing things can happen.

But I always forget.

I forget when being cut off in traffic on a hot day.

I forget when I see a parent slap their child in the grocery store.

I forget when I see our government, “the greatest nation in the world”, deny my fellow Americans the rights to love out loud who they choose.

I forget most often when I watch the evening news.

ALWAYS then I’m forgetting.

But thanks to Rachel Beckwith, today I will not forget what one GOOD heart can achieve.

May her memory stay with me every moment that I’m forgetting.

Watch and be reminded with me…
