Friday Poem – I Believe

i-believeBrowsing through the Top 500 poems list, looking for a suitable poem for today, I stumbled across this truly wonderful poem by Sienna Harlequinn.

Her name is all I could find out. But the poem speaks volumes and pretty much sums up my philosophy on life.

So, enjoy it:

I BELIEVE

I believe that the sun shines after the rain
I believe if you don’t get hurt you’ll never gain
I believe in not doing things the easy way
I believe that being selfish doesn’t pay

I believe in a second chance
I believe in a life long romance
I believe there is life after death
And standing up to a life of mess

I believe in love at first sight
I believe that revenge isn’t right
I believe that first impressions last
And there is nothing better then a good laugh

I believe that dreams do come true
I believe there’s destiny for me and you
I believe that good things come to those who wait
I believe love never arrives too late

I believe something good comes from something bad
I believe that for tears of happiness there are tears of sad
I believe everyone has a guardian angel
And the good you do will be rewarded well

I believe sometimes there is no explanation
I believe money can’t buy people’s affection
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
I believe a new day arrives with every dawn

I believe a smile can be contagious
I believe in being very outrageous
I believe in living with no regrets
I believe that life is as good as it gets

I believe that God watches over us
I believe the little things are worth the fuss
I believe you have each friend for a reason
I believe you will get punished for treason

I believe that what comes first is family
I believe we should all live in harmony
I believe in making the most of a beautiful day
And it’s not the end until everything’s okay

I believe absence makes the heart grow fonder
I believe you will lose if you sit and wonder
I believe every experience teaches you a lesson
And nothing cures better then a drinking session

I believe everyone has one true love
I believe sometimes we need a little shove
I believe the whole world is a stage
I believe we only get better with age

I believe that to learn you have to live
I believe that to love someone you have to give
I believe one moment can change your life
And there’s still help when you’re in strife

I believe everyone has one true friend
I believe love helps a broken heart mend
I believe in the power of a song
And things will change before too long

I believe living is the best experience
I believe in not laughing at other people’s expense
I believe it’s hard to watch a lover leave
And when they’re gone all you can do is breath

I believe to always look on the bright side
I believe that life is just one big ride
I believe when I die people will grieve
But it’s ok because I believe

Stripped Bare

…or we could call it “The Hollywood (Part 2)”

I’m doing something in next month which requires me to wear a very skimpy outfit, so I decided that this would call for the ‘lady garden’ to be, not just pruned, but stripped bare.

Now, considering my only other Hollywood wax was when I was 8½ months pregnant, I was a little bit apprehensive. After all, then I was left bruised, sore and unable to walk without pain for 2 days!

With this in the back of my mind, I didn’t want to wait until the last-minute to have it done, just in case.

But this morning it was all whipped away with the minimum amount of fuss and, more thankfully, not much pain. I have legs, underarms, eyebrows and bikini line waxed – and there is always some degree of pain. Obviously the more you have this done, the less the pain becomes as you become used to the treatment. But, apart from a couple of ouches, it was not a horrendous, unpleasant, never-to-be-repeated process.

I have to say, I think it probably has something to do with the person doing the waxing – after all if they are experienced, then they know what they are doing and can tell you exactly which way to stretch, where to put your leg, etc – and yes, it can resemble a scene out of ‘Sex and the City’.

…and yes, I probably will have it done again now 😉
