about me

a little about me and what i believe...

mer and her :)

♥ i am marie. i am a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, marketing coordinator and graphic designer.
♥ i believe in the saying, "you do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do."
♥ i believe that no matter where you came from, if you work hard, you can become whatever you want.
♥ i believe that since i have to work, i might as well do something i love.
♥ i do not believe that the clothes you wear, the house you live in, the car you drive, the amount of money in your bank account, nor the number of degrees on your wall define you.
♥ i believe that every day is a chance to redefine your life.
♥ i believe that no one can make you feel unworthy unless you let them.
♥ i believe that children are gifts and we should treat them as such.
♥ i believe that you can tell how good of a father a man will be by the way he treats animals.
♥ i believe that there are better means of discipline then inflicting physical pain.
♥ i believe that you can believe in your own God and not have to go to church to be spiritual.
♥ i believe everyone should stop at a child’s lemonade stand as you may be their only customer that day.
♥ i believe that the pictures i take today will be a gift to my children in the future.
♥ i believe that some of god's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
♥ i believe that the truth, even when hurtful, is always better than a lie.
♥ i believe in the true meaning of marriage.
♥ i believe that sometimes bad crap happens and there isn't always a reason for it.
♥ i believe that you have to love yourself before anyone else will love you.
♥ i believe that getting old is not scary, but rather not getting old is.
♥ i believe that happiness isn't always getting what you want, but wanting what you have.
♥ i also do not believe in having to use use the shift key, hence my lower case posts :).
