May You Always Find Reasons to Believe

At seven years old, I sat on Santa Claus’ lap and I believed in him and all he stood for.  So many years later, I still believe.

I believe we can…

Wonder at everyday life

Delight in our own uniqueness

Stop and listen to the music in our heart

Celebrate our strengths

Be kind to ourselves

Find time for joy

As I write this list, I can’t help but think of the movie The Polar Express and the theme of believing.  As Santa Claus takes the bell and hands it to the little boy, he says: “This bell is a wonderful symbol of the spirit of Christmas – as am I.  Just remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.”

It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, or what faith you practice, the power of believing keeps us all strong and hopeful and alive.  During this holiday season, I raise a toast to you and all that you can accomplish if you choose to believe.

    Hi Nancy! For years I struggled to believe in one of the most important things to believe in…myself. Even with the confidence I have acquired over the years, I still find that I get in my own way sometimes. It is a constant internal struggle I have. I have found that believing is part of the driving force to achive our goals. And achieving our goals is key to being able to believe in ourselves. Catch 22. So, obtainable, yet challenging goals are what have helped me break free. 🙂 Excellent post!

      When I went through one of the most challenging times of my life, I made a list of three things I liked about myself. Then on those days when I felt lousy, I read that list out loud again and again. When I started to feel better, I added to that list. It really helped a lot. I’m so glad you have found that belief in yourself. It’s not an easy thing to do.
