My journey to a healthier me

Tales of my life


on October 10, 2012

This post is inspired by a photo posted by my friend Joe. It’s a simple yet magical picture of a rock with the word BELIEVE carved into it. The photo was taken at sunset, and the way the colours are almost dancing is just amazing.
Believe. It’s a simple yet powerful word.

With this one little word, you can change your way of thinking or you can change the world.

Sometimes you don’t realize what an impact that little word can have. Until it does.

When you believe in a cause, you can help change the world. When you put your heart and soul into it, you can bring attention to something that means a lot to you and maybe something that others may not know much about.

When you believe you are right, it can make for some interesting arguments. Think lawyers in a courtroom or politicians in a debate. Two people squaring off, making passionate speeches about why they are right and the other is wrong. Both sides believing with all that they have and all that they are.

When you believe in love, you believe in forever. When you find that person who complements you, your world becomes something new. It’s truly a remarkable thing.

When someone believes in you, it can make a huge difference. If you are someone like me, who grew up very shy and very reserved and very unsure, having someone say “I believe in you” is life-changing. Suddenly you’re doing things you didn’t know you could and thinking things you never thought you would. You feel like you are on top of the world. Having someone in your corner like that is almost indescribable. Everyone needs someone like that. Everyone deserves someone like that.

To go along with that and most importantly …

When you believe in yourself, the world and all your potential is at your disposal. This one is a tough one for me sometimes. I have not always believed in myself. When you are used to hearing people talk negatively about you, it’s hard to believe the good stuff. Especially if it has been drilled into you for years. But then someone comes along and shows you how good you are. And you start believing in yourself. And then amazing things happen. The more someone believes in you, the more you believe in yourself. The more you believe in yourself, the more confidence you have. The more confidence you have, the more unstoppable you are. It’s an amazing thing.


Believe in love.
Believe in life.
Believe in a cause.
Believe you can change the world.
Believe in someone who needs help.
Believe in yourself.
