"I Believe"

My father shared this with me via email this weekend. It made me reflect & reevaluate my current state of being. Most of this is common sense, but most of us still need to be reminded of these things.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


 A lot of wisdom here

This will take about 2 minutes of your time, but it is a lifetime of information.
A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died

Pictures show that we lived!

Have a seat.   Relax . . . And read this slowly.

I Believe... That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.


I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends
If we understand that friends change.

I Believe.... That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe... That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe.... That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.


I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe.... That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe....
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
to be done, regardless of the consequences.


I Believe.....
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing
and have the best time.

I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry,
I have the right to be angry. But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe.... That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with  how many
birthdays you've celebrated.


I Believe.... That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe....
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are, But, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe... That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life Forever.

I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same thing,
and see something totally different.

I Believe... That your life can be changed in a matter of hours
By people who don't even know you.

I Believe.....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe... That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.


'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.
