What Do You Believe Today?

In my travels through the internet, I came across a fabulous blog that makes me happy in so many ridiculous ways. The blogger is a young woman who, judging from her posts, I like to think of as a kindred spirit. Every few posts she has a series titled, "today I believe", and below are some of my favourite things that she, (and I) believe:*

... that rainy days exist to refresh the imagination.

... that the world outside your comfort zone can be scary, but it's also a whole lot more exciting.

... that ingrid michaelson lyrics always manage tospeak directly to my soul.

... that opening yourself up to new people can be nothing but rewarding.

... that it's important to be patient - especially with yourself.
... and that we should fill our days with ideas and people and pursuits that empower us.

... that discovering a book you love is one of the best things you can experience - and sometimes, rereading that book years later and re-falling in love with it can be even better.

... that concerts are one of the best, most perfect ways to feed the soul.

... that you should welcome as many people into your life as you can--and the more different they are, from one another and from yourself, the better.

... that sometimes, daydreams are the best way to pass the time.

... that although we have a tendency to put others up on a pedestal - sometimes, we deserve to put ourselves up there, too

Her blog is called a diary of little things and curiosities and is one you should definitely check out. What do you believe today? :)
