Sometimes in life it’s important to stand still and think about where you believe in
As i am a lover of old Hollywood, Marlene Dietrich had a great Believe
„ I believe a man would prefer to come home to an unmade bed and a happy woman,
than to a neatly made bed and an angry woman"
The last few weeks i came across some paths i had to take in my life to be able to move forward. It’s not easy to take the right path, therefore it’s good to stand still once in a while and think about what you are standing for.
What is the most important thing in your life? That will make your choice a bit easier.
The next question is also, can you trust anyone who crosses your path? Well if he or she thinks the same way as you do, you may be willing to trust that person. But for this you have to be sure that this person is not lying to you.....I had some bad experiences lately and that made me think about what i stand for and that i have to keep faithful to that. Faithful to me and to the people i love.
Also before i re-designed this blog 2 weeks ago it was important to describe myself as who i am and where i believe in and it’s also interesting for my readers to know who i am and what i stand for. The best way to do that is to write a Manifesto.
I can tell you, that you will get to know yourself a little bit better when you write one. It’s a way to send a message out to the world, but also to yourself. This is how i feel and act.
There are hundreds of ways to write a Manifesto, you can focus on your message but also about things you really believe in......so with my Manifesto i will start with "I believe”.
Only my first 35 believes :-)
1. I believe in life after death, but also that you have to make something out of this life
2. I believe in creating some free time for yourself "even with your to do list in hand”

35. I believe that if you keep your faith, you keep your trust, you keep the right attitude and if you’re grateful, God will open new doors for you.
I’m sure i have many more believes, but you have to think for yourselfs which are the most important to you. With these 35 believes you must know me quite good now. As this is totally me ;)
It’s a good way to get to know yourself better, if it is not for you, try to do it anyway and be honest about it, cause that is the whole point why you can write a Manifesto. Your mind will be more clear to you and you will know better what you really want. Other people will appreciate it too when they know where you believe in.
Where do you believe in?
What are you standing for?
