It can be hard to believe in anything. It can be hard to believe that things will ever go back to a sense of “normal” as we live life during the COVID-19 pandemic. It can be challenging to believe a relationship is truly good and can last if you have experienced heart ache and unhealthy relationships in the past. Hard to believe that you it's okay to trust again, it's okay to have faith, and to believe that not every situation or person will turn out to be the same. It can be hard to believe that it’s safe to trust, when past evidence say’s you shouldn’t. More so, it can be hard to believe in ourselves.
As hard as it can be, believe in yourself. Believe in your ability to do great things, to overcome challenging moments and days. Believe that there is no mountain too high, and believe that there is no storm so great that you can’t weather it. Believe in yourself. Believe in the good. Believe in yourself, you deserve to accomplish your goals and live a beautiful, happy life, that you create. Believe that you can accomplish great things, believe in your ability to do good, to do better, and to keep on going. Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable, and may be amazed by what you attract when you start believing in what your deserve and your own worth. The same energy you use to doubt yourself, use to believe in yourself.
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can. As Disney put so well in Cinderella, “No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.”
Accept what is, let go of what was, and believe in what will be.
Believe that better days are coming, and that we won’t live among a pandemic forever.
While the date on the calendar changed, and the year now ends with a 1, we are not out of the woods. We still live life side by side by the COVID-19 virus, the pandemic that has changed our lives, and continues to reek havoc and take lives daily. It can be hard to believe that things will get better, to believe that this too shall pass. It will. I can't tell you when, nor can I tell you what it will look like. After all, I am only human and I don't have a magic ball to show me the future. However, I'd rather look on the bright side, stay positive, and believe that in time, the numbers will stop rising, the death toll with stop rising, and that eventually this will be an unpleasant memory in test books that we talk to our grandkids about. Believing in something is one of the most important choices we can make, providing a sense of security, purpose, not to mention helping us stay more positive, likely having a positive effect on our mental health as well. Believe in something beautiful again.
Everyone should believe in something, I believe that it's time to drink my coffee, and that the future is limitless, an adventure, and bound to be beautiful, and that we will all shine brighter after this storm.
