"You have everything you need . . . if you just believe."
These words are from a song in the Polar Express (remember that movie?), and it reminded me of what it means to believe.
What is believing?
It's that feeling when you're clutching your heart in your hand, holding onto what each beat is saying, and knowing that whatever your heart is whispering to you is absolutely, a-final-period-at-the-end-of-a-great-novel, true.
It's the Christmas season, everyone, and if you don't believe now that there's some hope and good in the world this season out of all seasons, then maybe you're looking at the world, but you're not seeing. The night is decorated with glowing, northern lights, snow may not be falling everywhere, but a sweeping uplift of joy is making its rounds around the globe.
Give. Smile. Laugh. Believe.
The countdown to Christmas has already begun, sing along.
