“Belief. Makes things real…” –Gavin DeGraw
Wow. What a great lyric. Things in life seem “real” to us because we believe that they are. We hear words that people tell us and take the information they are conveying for truth, because we choose to believe them. We live our days out in a society that relies on the notion of belief. Belief in religion, belief in family, belief in friendship, belief in the good of all mankind, belief that life should be better, belief that this is all there is. Many times we inherit beliefs from others. Sometimes we develop them all on our own. Belief can be taught, or sometimes it is forced. But in the end, if you believe it, then for you, it is real.
Well here are a few more beliefs that I’d like to share with you. Belief in yourself. Belief that the path of your life is in your hands, chosen by you. That if you want something in this life, in your life, you have the power to bring it, if you believe. Belief that positive energy can actually change your life and the world around you. Belief that the attitude you emit to the world, is the same attitude and energy that will be returned to you.
Like many times, I was struck by this message once when I thought I was merely listening to a song. However messages and ideas make it through to you personally, I hope this one does for you.
