After reading a friends personal credo, I decided to write one myself. It’s not a typical credo, but I’ve changed it around a bit just because I can=). First and most importantly of all, I have an open-mind, a big heart, & undying faith in God; anything and everything good in me is through Him. I am a free-spirit, and this is my personal credo.
I believe in living a balanced life. It’s important to have faith, in yourself, in God, in others, and with this faith, you will find the strength to get through any difficulties in your material life, whether it be from school, work, internal struggles, or personal relationships. I believe that even when people hurt you and things do not go as planned, struggle is an inevitable part of life, but true and real happiness is intrinsic, and can be found through faith. It’s important to remember the big picture and the shortness of this life, and live life a day at a time instead of stressing over the small stuff. I am very optimistic and grateful and believe laughter and a sense of humor are very important in order to live a life of peace and contentment.
I value education and service. It is important to be real, open-minded, and understanding of others, and to live your life with compassion for and kindness towards each and every person you come across. I do not believe in making judgments, gossip, or superficiality; I strongly believe in freedom and equality for all. I love trying new things, meeting new people, and living in each moment fully. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and AΞΔ sisters; I am always open and compassionate and try to love and help others as much and as often as I possibly can. I forgive easily, trust with caution, and love openly, always.
Last but not least, I believe in being yourself, the best self you can be, with confidence in yourself and your beliefs. I am interested in music, psychology, health and fitness, and traveling. I enjoy keeping up with current events and good entertainment, books, abstract art, and basketball. I believe true beauty comes from the inside and reflects on the outside. I’m a bit eccentric & tend to be pretty crazy at times, but I know who I am and what I want. As of right now, I am very content and in the future, I would like to continue to live a balanced life, become a nurse, start a family of my own, and continue to expand my horizons and make a difference in the lives of others.
