Hey BWoods Fans! Over the course of 2014, I’ve slowly compiled a list of things that I believe in. Just whenever the mood would strike me or if a situation came about that made me think about the things that were truly important to me, I’d add these random thoughts to my list. Almost all my social media contains the words “I Believe…” in my bio and I bet some of you wondered why. Well, now you know! I’ve kept this list in my phone for an entire year and I wanted to share it with you guys. This list is in no particular order and it’s totally random at times, but I thought that this would be a great blog to end 2014 with. I thought it would be cool for you guys to get in my head a little. Enjoy!
