I believe…

I recieved an e-mail that I thought was worth publishing.  Author unknown.

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.

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 money is a lousy way of keeping score.

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…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.

I believe…The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

  1. That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

    My favorite on the list. I hope I never get there; I hope life keeps me on my toes, forever altering who I want to be. That will mean I’ve lived a life full of laughter, joy, sorrow and challenge. I would call that a good life.


  2. I love this! Thank you for sharing this with us. It takes alot of battles to come to these conclusions and alot of your heart is borrowed in doing so I identify with these words.
