“It is the era, the climate of our times that limits and shapes our way of being. The climate of our times, our era, determines what we see as being possible, and it determines what we see as being achievable.” “Altering an Era” by Joan Holmes
Believe that in every breath we inhale a spirit of amazing possibility.
Believe that each breeze that blows by contains the hopes, dreams and wishes of someone just like you.
Believe that the same spirit resides in each and every heart that it touches.
Believe that each flower that blossoms, regardless of its circumstances, manages to reach intuitively for a light even in the absence of the sun.
Believe our world is still filled with awe and wonder even in the midst of strife.
Believe that the stars shine at night not by pre-determination, but by the grace of God.
Believe that we can see past the weaknesses, flaws, frailties and divisions to something far greater.
Believe that no one has the power or can take your power away from you.
Believe that an intimacy exists between us so great that over time we just naturally begin to fill the needs.
Believe that I don’t have to be held in place by where I live, my lifestyle, what you think I am, what I have done, or where I have been nor will I hold you by where you live, your lifestyle, what I think you are, what you have done, or where you have been.
Believe, like children, that each day we wake will be filled with a newness that dances in the invisible background.
Believe that if you are grateful enough for the day you will be left with some piece of wisdom that will last you forever.
Believe, if we can love each other just a little, we can share an understanding that surpasses anything of this world.
Believe that your existence here is a miracle, and it will be.
Believe that nothing is impossible and it won’t be.
