I believe...

--That perception is not reality, but that it sure has a hell of an impact on it
--That it doesn't matter who you love or how you love them, so long as they're a consenting adult
--There is nowhere near enough love in the world
--Instant meals are wonderful, but nowhere near as good as home-cooking
--You get back what you put out into the world
--Karma is a bitch
--That people change, sometimes for the better and sometimes not
--Everybody needs a bosom buddy to share secrets with
--We are all stronger, smarter, and more amazing than we give ourselves credit for
--There is magic left in the world, if you know where to look
--There are many gods, and they are all facets and aspects of one god
--We all walk our own paths, to our own destinations, and all these paths deserve respect
--Life needs the bitter to enhance the sweet
--That you should be nice to customer servants, always. They're people, too
--In tipping your waitperson well, they work crazy hard
--Chocolate can do a lot to make a crappy day better.
--Crying and laughter are both incredibly healing
--Some things happen for a reason, and some happen just because
--You can't always get what you want, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try
--Sometimes, all you can do is let go
--Moving outside your comfort zone is liberating and terrifying
--Failure makes you grow, if you do it right
--Success is relative
--Nice matters
--Women are crazy
--Men are also crazy
--Beauty is a state of mind

I think you are so very, very wise. Your parents did a marvellous job with you girls, Em. that was just so wonderful!

Amen to it all. But you left out my favorite - I believe I'll have another cookie.

I believe that is an excellent list.

I also believe that having another cookie is a great idea. I'm going to go do that myself.

I believe in these things too. except for the god one (don't think I believe in that...but not sure) and tipping. Not because they don't work hard, just that tipping shouldn't be necessary because waitpeople (and indeed all service type employees) should actually be paid a proper wage in the first place.
