The prompt over at Sunday Scribblings this week is “I Believe” and I just had to play along. I love writing out things that I believe.

I believe in sea goddesses and mermaids who play with dolphins

I believe in the healing power of the sea.

I believe in magic, and I believe magic is all around us, if you just open yourself to it.

I believe in the power of positive visualizations.

I believe in the power of karma.

I believe in love. I believe love is its own kind of magic, the most powerful kind. And I believe in love that can last through time and space and ages. I believe God, whatever he/she/it is, is pure love, magnified.

I believe in following your dreams. Especially if they scare you.

I believe you have to work hard for what you want in this life, but if you work hard and follow  your dreams, and live true to your heart, you will find what you are looking for, and you will find more than you ever expected to find.

I believe adults need to listen to the wisdom of children, and not discount it because they are children.

I believe the Universe will help you manifest what you want in your life, if you really believe in what you put out there.

I believe that we are here to shine, in our own unique way. I believe it is the true purpose of living — to learn how to let your light shine, and not block it or hide it or put it away.

I believe I am here to write beautiful stories, capture beautiful slices of life through photography, and I believe I am here to help others play.

I believe in fairies.

I believe that despite all the craziness in the world, I believe more and more people are beginning to shine their lights and this gives me hope.

I believe you need to have a sense of wonder about the world — about clouds, about trees, about natural miracles, about everything you see and even more that you don’t.

I believe you need to take risks, and push yourself in new directions, in all areas of your life.

I believe in dancing in the rain and walking barefoot on the beach whenever possible.

I believe in the healing power of art and of putting colors onto paper.

I believe I have many adventures waiting for me. I believe I will meet some of you on these adventures!

I believe in making people smile.

I believe animals can teach people a lot about love.

I believe in making wishes.

I believe in potential. Mine. Yours.

I believe in letting people know you love them, as often as possible.

I believe I would love to know what you believe!

I was driving back from a trail run this morning, on a fairly quiet, country-ish road. All of a sudden, I saw a cat, a beautiful brown cat with black stripes step out on the road. She was pretty much just in front of my wheels, I had no time to react. I just saw her face. And then I didn’t see her.

I kept staring in the rear view mirror, to see if I could see her. I didn’t see her.

I stopped the car, turned back around, parked on the side of the road, looked in the grass, looked under the car. I didn’t see her.

I got back in the car, driving really slowly, looking on both sides of the road. I never saw her, never saw any blood, and when I had seen her and she disappeared, I never felt a bump or anything.

So I think she is one lucky cat. I don’t know what I would have done if I had hit her. I hope she is home now, and safe, and not playing near a road.
