The Magnolia Manifesto
So I love when my quarterly Magnolia magazine shows up.. I save it for a time to read when I can really pay attention to all the details and read all the stories! I just love it.. That to say, I came upon the Magnolia Manifesto and I thought I'd share because I loved it sooo much..I agree with every line and just think it captures life in a simplistic way, a way we should strive for. It's in their latest magazine if you'd like to pick one up! Target even started carrying them in their Magnolia section.. Here it goes:
We believe in home, that it should restore us from today and ready us for tomorrow.
We believe in friendship, because friends who feel like family are the best kind of friends, and that nothing matters more than family.
We believe in seeking the balance between hustle and rest and learning to find contentment in both.
We believe everyone deserves a seat at the table and everyone has a story worth telling.
We believe in human kindness, knowing we are made better when we all work together.
We believe in courage, in cartwheeling past our comfort zones and trying something a little bit scary every day.
We believe that failure needn't be a negative thing; rather, we learn from our mistakes and fail smarter the next time.
We believe in doing good work that matters and, in choosing that, nudging others toward doing the same.
We believe that newer isn't always better and that it's time for the pendulum of trend to swing back to the basics.
We believe in unearthing beauty, however hidden or subtle it might be.
We believe that each day is a gift and that everyday miracles are scattered about if only we have eyes to see.
And of all heroic pursuits large or small, we believe there may be none greater than a life well loved.
