The Pricelessness of Believing

I mentioned this topic in a recent post so I’ll keep this short, but I am completely enamored 🥰 with the embodied feeling of BELIEVING.

Believing makes you magical. And real. And radiant. And needed. And rare.

Believing in our planet.

Believing in our collective future.

Believing in ourselves.

Believing in each other.

When you see people receiving awards, the BIGGEST THANKS goes to the people who BELIEVED in them.

I’m working on a post about what it means to be a Minister of SASSYNESS. At the heart of it: it’s “simply” one person BELIEVING in another. I think we can all be such ministers. I think it’s a choice.

Envisioning the best in others. Imagining them happy and well, regardless of outer circumstances or conditions. BEING present to them but simultaneously seeing beyond their current reality into their possibility. BELIEVING IT.

Every one of us has this capacity. I think it’s time we exercise it, stretch it, strengthen it, condition it. Tend to it. Minister to it.


Because it feels good.

Because we did this as children so we already know how.

Because it works. It breathes life into all kinds of possibilities.

Because it’s fun!

Because it’s not a commodity you can BUY it. It’s a GIFT. A priceless treasure.

Because there is MAGIC in believing.

Because WE are so damn worth it!

If you resonate with this… well, WE NEED YOU. Our world needs you.

If you resonate with this… YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This is what we practice at JBL.

  1. Inspiring up the bippy!!! Thanks for the mid-day boost, Debbie!!! 😉
    P.S.: Lyrics about “believing” from an 80’s band I dug, Tears for Fears:
    “I believe that if you thought for a moment, took your time,
    You would not resign yourself to your fate…”
