Tiny Wisdom: On What We Believe


“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Today I used the Twitter search functionality, looking for the phrase, “I believe in.” Here’s what I found:

“I believe in love.”

“I believe in magic.”

“There must be another way because I believe in taking chances.”

“I believe in people like me.”

“I believe in life itself.”

“I believe in dreams and that we control our destiny through our actions.”

“I believe in the sun even if it isn’t shining.”

“I believe in the words ‘never say never.'”

There’s something kind of beautiful about watching affirmations of life stream down the page, one after the other, from people all over the world. Our beliefs shape everything we see, try, risk, and create.

Our beliefs shape who are and who we might become.

I believe love can transform almost anything. I believe in possibilities. I believe in impossibilities that suddenly don’t look that way anymore. I believe that it’s never over until it’s over. And I believe that every moment is a new opportunity to change your life.

What do you believe in?
