Things I believe in

It is sad to think that it has taken so many years to finally come to terms with life.  I recently saw a sign that said "Be kind because everyone is fighting a battle."  I pondered over this simple sentence for a long time. At first you think sure, whatever.  
What kind of battle does a person living in a beautiful house, driving a luxury car, or travelling etc, have?
My battle is depression/PTSD. My battle is understanding what happiness is. My battle is body image.
EVERYONE IS FIGHTING A BATTLE.  Life is not easy.  Somedays life sucks. You have to have faith that everything is going to work out and it will!!!!  
Another quote that I really spent some time thinking about is from the Dalai Lama
How true is this?  How many people do you know who do this?  
A friend of mine at jenchoosesjoy.com did a post about things she believes in and I thought what a great idea.  So here is a list of things that I believe in, no specific order.
