Have you ever thought about what you believe in? This topic came up after one of my friends decided to take his own life…and he lives opposite my condo. I was scared shitless half the time and didn’t want to come home or stay home or look outside the window. Scared mah! One morning (1 or 2 in the morning), I placed a call to my sister and just uttered, “Very scared wor. How?”
Next morning, my mother dropped by my house with her religious paraphernalia and started asking me to pray whenever I feel scared. *LOL*. She meant well and the religion did help her get over difficult moments in her life and being her daughter, she definitely wants the best for me (as kick-ass naughty as I was with her during my teens). I really appreciated that. Then recently, I chatted with a friend in another country who used to be my school friend. He mentioned being actively involved in church and other stuff he believed in.
Which brought me around to blogging about this. What do I believe in since I don’t have a religion? I agree that religion is an important aspect to living because religion, irregardless of your choice, fills a person with hope when one is down. It lifts when one is falling.
So, since I am religion-less, I asked myself, “Marsha, what do you believe in?” Although I don’t have a certain MAKER that I completely believe in (I am a very sore and hopeless cynic), these are the things that I believe in and they all keep me happy and alive.
Myself. Number one. I believe that a person can do anything if that person put his or her heart into it. Every single cell in his or her body must pulsate with passion. This is something I strongly believe in.
Music. I’ve said this to some people before….my obsession with music and singing is indescribable. Music gives me strength. Music changes my mood. I can create music to change my mood therefore; I consider music to be one of the most powerful healers in the world.
Dreams….er…the ones you have when you’re conscious and kicking office workers’ asses! I have been using this statement for the longest time which is “Dreams make the soul, without the soul, the body is nothing. So Live Your Dreams….”. To me, this is a very strong statement and it led me into making unorthodox decisions in my life…decisions that stunned many people. But to me, without a dream, there’s no point in living. Without a dream, it’s like existing and not living.
Charity. I believe in Karma which explains why I don’t like to blab about the bad things that other people did in front of others. Anyway, doing good to others is something I really believe in…not to get something back in return but to get that emotional fulfillment of being co-humans. That….it helps you find peace with others and yourself as well.
Life. Everyone should belief in life….in living. Live well, live good and live happy.
You. I believe in every one of you because in some ways, you have enriched my life and even if you’ve just dropped by this blog, it doesn’t matter. I see you come in and you’ve enriched my life in that way.
