I am a pretty simple girl at heart. My core beliefs are simple:
- Right is right
- Wrong is wrong
- Work hard
- Do the right thing even when no one is watching
- Have faith
- Be loyal
- Be honest
- Do what needs to be done
- Be someone others can believe in
- Be strong
- Be kind
- Admit when you are wrong
- Don’t give up but know when to quit
- Be thankful and say thank you
- Earn what you want
In my simple mind there are simple rules in this life. You follow the rules. You give 100%-100% of the time. You do the right things for the right reasons and the right things happen. I believed that.
I teach my children that life isn’t fair but I don’t think I believed it. I expect fair. Not free…but I do expect fair. I believed in that too.
And I clung to these beliefs. My faith was bulit on these simple truths. Even when things went contray to these beliefs– I kept the faith. I kept believing. It was all I knew to do.
What do you do when you lose faith?
What do you do when the simple rules you live by fail you? I mean it..what do you do?
