Danielle ends her list saying that "every time we ask, What do you believe? we begin a freedom song."
Here is my freedom song. A list of what I believe:
I believe that we often create our own pain and our own joy and that it is very hard in the moment of hurt to turn from pain to joy, but it is possible.
I believe that everyone deserves to be spoiled.
I believe that everyone deserves to be happy. That feeling of pure joy and happiness that comes from feeling free.
I believe that my partner has been part of me forever and that the universe is smiling at us when we are our best selves together.
I believe in the beauty of dreams.
I believe in beautiful gifts. I believe in LOVE. That beautifully pure love what happens when you completely open your heart to someone.
I believe that each of us is a special spark/soul/spirit/nashama (choose your word).
I believe that creativity takes courage and that we stop ourselves short of what we can accomplish when we give up too easily or convince ourselves otherwise.
I believe that we are worth it! I believe that self-care, self-love, self-compassion are the most important things our world needs right now.
I believe in the power of words and empowering thinking and that we create our own possibilities.
I believe in reiki and yoga and healing energy.
I believe that the universe is conspiring with us.

I believe that we are all powerful - each and every one of us is a powerful force capable of affecting the universe and changing the world.
I believe that we're obsessed with protein, but we are harming our world when we rename meat protein. Meat is meat.
I believe it takes strength to feel deeply.
I believe that nature heals.
I believe that fear is the root of most problems in the world.
