sometimes it's heavier than it looks...

it's not always easy to believe in yourself
~~
but
if you do believe in yourself
fearlessly
you will always have a thirst for life
that
nobody else will ever quite understand

I believe
that we are all facing choices that define us
and
if you choose to believe in
forgiveness and wonder
your faith will soar
~~

I also believe
that we all have growing pains
and
if you quit on yourself
even the tiniest little bit
everyone else will
too

~this is my wednesday spc for the incredible and beautiful misty~
and
who knew i could have so much fun with a sign
?

  6. These are such great shots, beth ! I love how the sign really does look heavy in the first one...

    The best thing about the post though, is the words you put with your gorgeous photos. Need them today...most days lately...know that your message touched someone deep inside, in a really good way, today.

    Happy Wednesday !

  7. Don't every quit...and if you have a day when you just can't push uphill on your own...let us remind you of all of your worth, value, beauty, and the inspiration your images and words bring to us. Growing pains?? I so understand.

  10. It's nice when someone reminds you that "I" am included in the people I care about and the people that deserve my time and effort. Sometimes the hardest person to support is yourself... This was just what I needed to see today.

  11. I do believe too. Sometimes it's a little hard to look into your own reflection. But only good can come from it. Because by looking closely than only you can see the things that you might like to change for the better. Some times the road is bumpy and hard but at the end it is always worth it. And you never ever walk alone.
    Thank you for your words, sometimes it's necessary someone else says them too me so I won't forget.

  13. Nicely done Beth! I think we all should carry around a believe sign to help us remember- I know I could benefit from that! Enjoy Elizabeth Berg- she was wonderful and she mentioned Laura by name- how cool is that?! Ask Laura about it...

  28. I posted my blog, and thought I'd see what yours was up to, and it was almost like you saw mine and answered it, although i know you posted first.
    Do you really read all the comments? You have so many followers.
