Many of you have seen this quote from the fabulous Audrey Hepburn. I was showing a beautiful home the other day and in the ladies closet, which was approximately the same size as my daughters bedroom, was this quote. It got me to thinking about what I believe in and that every woman should have her own quote. It stuck with me and one day I decided to sit down and write my own. It was amazing how quickly things came to me and how many there were. I am going to share mine and encourage you to write your own, in fact, if you share yours I’ll enter your name in a drawing for a SPA GIFT CERTIFICATE, so you can get a little Ms. Hepburn treatment.
I believe in Fierce. I believe that failure is only failure if you let it keep you down. I believe confidence is all the make-up you need. I believe in love. I believe in spirituality before religion. I believe in my family. I believe in total equality. I believe music and art are what make us a human. I believe in the freedom of speech, even when that speech makes me ill. I believe in the right to love and marry whomever you choose. I believe in giving second chances. I believe in forgiving, not forgetting. I believe that people are kind and good, with a few bad apples thrown in to keep us on our toes. I believe that faith heals. I believe that sometimes there is no answer to the question, why. I believe in timeouts, for everyone. I believe that practice makes us the best person we can be, but not perfect. I believe in respect. I believe in stillness. I believe in honesty, with room for a little white lie every now and then. I believe in telling loved ones, you love them, everyday. I believe in letting kids be kids. I believe in wine, lots of wine, and coffee in the morning. I believe your home is your sanctuary, treat it that way. I believe in new beginnings. I believe in being kind to yourself.
I look forward to reading your responses, get them in by April 4th and I’ll enter you in the drawing.
